Keep the Burning Man Spirit Alive at The Great Depressurization
Leaving Black Rock City after a week in the wonder world of Burning Man is rough. The default world ruthlessly beckons, everything you own is covered in dust, and you've got a massive stash of new, inimitable memories to unpack.
Thankfully, there are Burning Man decompression parties. Full of theme camps, DJs and playa art, and fellow burners ready to reconnect and celebrate their experiences, these parties are often the best way to keep the spirit of Black Rock City alive. On the way back this year, many burners are going to The Great Depressurization in downtown Reno, Nevada and South Lake Tahoe, where a huge multi-hotel, multi-venue party will take place September 4-7, 2017.
Billed as "three days and four nights of decompressing with pool parties, headlining shows, sustenance and shenanigans," there is plenty of time to both rage and relax. Choose from rooms at the Eldorado Resort Casino, the Silver Legacy Resort Casino, or Circus Circus Hotel Casino in Reno (they're all connected underground), or the MontBleu Resort Casino and Spa in South Lake Tahoe, and enjoy your last few days of freedom before jumping back into the grind of daily life.
Best of all, until September 6, when you book a room at one of these hotels using The Great Depressurization's website using their provided booking codes, you'll receive sweet perks. In Reno, all post-burn rooms will get two all-access Multipasses for Reno events and parties, while bookings made at MontBleu in South Lake Tahoe will get admission for two to Opal Ultra Lounge & HQ featuring guest DJs and beach shuttle service. In addition, booking through Great Depressurization's site will get you 25% off your chosen hotel room until September 6.
One look at the lineup above and you'll see why Burners are flocking to this event post-Burn. Fort Knox Five, DJ Dan, and Worthy headline, while dozens more artists will provide tasty tuneage all day and long into the night. Immersive environments, audio experiences and art from collaborators like The Grand Artique, Dirty Beetles, renowned nightclubs like the Great Northern and Monarch, and others will dazzle, while new additions like yoga, sound healing, craft vendors, and massage sessions round out the bill.
Reno and Lake Tahoe are already popular spots for post-Burn decompression, so why not make it a bona fide party? The Great Depressurization is here to stretch those Burning Man feels a few days longer with good vibes, new and old friends, and excellent music. See you at the pool.
