What is decompression?
A decompression event, decom or decomp is a local reunion for Burning Man participants to help ease themselves back into everyday society after the "big event." It is not uncommon for Burning Man participants to experience "post-burn blues," and decompression events can help alleviate the feelings of loneliness and separation that can occur. The events provide an opportunity to participants to share feelings, art, performances, and memories. As awareness of Burning Man has spread around the world, Decompression events have evolved to welcome newcomers to Burner culture.
Las Vegas Decompression is a radically inclusive and expressive outdoor street faire style event produced by your local Burning Man community. Featuring music, performers, art, mutant vehicles, costumes, participation, and much playa love. Reconnect and share stories from the burn or make new friends and start getting pumped for next year. If you’ve never been to Burning Man, this is a great way to learn more about our community!> Click here to RSVP on Facebook
