Come out to a Witch Wells near Sanders, AZ and join us for 4 days - October 9-12 - of large scale art, music, performance art, and interactive participation. The AZBurners are an interactive group of artists, performers, musicians and participants of the Burning Man event that takes place in the Black Rock Desert, Nevada. Come DECOMPRESS - Share your Playa experiences - Foster New & Old friendships.

Arizona Decompression is an event created by the AZBurners Community to bring the culture of Burning Man and Black Rock City to our region. We expect each attendee to participate in the event in some way. Participation and creative interaction is a core value of our culture. Create, participate, no spectators! Respect for alternative lifestyles and cultures is required.
  The THEME for Decompression 2014 is....REVELRY

The long road home extends in both directions. One path leads toward the Black Rock Desert oasis, where we delight in the unconventional artistic expressions of an elaborate temporary community. The opposite path brings us to our place of origin. A land of hidden canyons, mesas, and expansive skies. A place of ancient stories told by countless relics and petroglyphs heard in the bird songs and the whispering trees. It is here where we gather in festivity, to revel in the lasting impressions from Burning Man. Where we frolic and play with joyful jocularity and romp through the nights. It is here where we decompress in Revelry!

Arizona Decompression 2014 is an opportunity to express your visions for our future. We invite you to pARTicipate.  In support of artistic expression we have set up an AZBurner Art Fund. For more information, please visit our Art Grant Request Form.
