Los Angeles Decompression Party Today

After Burning Man sold out at 50,000 tickets this year for the first time since its 1986 inception, many people are refocusing on their regional communities with “decompression” festivals, which act as booster shots to Burning Man’s weeklong Nevada desert dose of hyper-reality.

Today, you can take part in Los Angeles’ Decompression, a noon-to- 2 a.m. whirlwind of art, theme camps, the Stilt Circus, fire-breathing art cars and art installations, live bands, DJs, green technology, puppetry, and marching bands.

The festival’s 80+ performers include Treavor Moontribe, beatfreaque, Bass Mechanic (San Diego), Hobotech, DJ Wolfie, Pumpkin, darkMatter, and divaDanielle.

As part of this year’s Burning Man theme, Rites of Passage, over 20 regional communities built monuments representing their cities for the Circle of Regional Effigies installation, a ring of structures encircling the eponymous Man at a distance of 600 feet.

“The sculptures’ placement in a ring around the Man suggests the progress of the Burning Man culture radiating outward from the main fire at our center, out into the larger world,” says the effigies’ Facebook page. “The projects will culminate in a shared burn event on Thursday night.”

Representing Los Angeles this year was a wooden food truck (a nod to the city’s ubiquitous food on wheels trend), which served booze and burritos before being burned on the fourth day of the festival.
