Metal bar Inferno is to host Shanghai’s inaugural Burning Man Decompression event on November 11th from 12-8pm, with an afternoon of film, food, poetry and performances by DJs and artists giving the uninitiated a taste of the Burning Man spirit.
Decompression is the kick-off event for Shanghai ‘burners’ to meet new friends and share ideas. The hosts really hope people will use this event to find all who are interested in the bigger offsite event in for April 2013. Hong Kong’s Burning Man group is just now forming and we want to know about the community here Shanghai who want to start ours as well. We’re well aware it’s going to take a lot of participants and artists to plan a bigger event that is not just a really awesome experience, but also safe and with proper permissions. We still need to grow the core group of people that will make this happen in Shanghai and we hope to meet these new friends at the party. Come party with us Burning Man style on Sunday and let’s get this festival plan started!
The event will include a screening of the documentary Beyond Black Rock, a behind the scenes look into how the Burning Man festival is organised and what it’s really like to live in the Black Rock community.
