All Ages welcome!
Tickets $25-30 advance, $35 at the gate

Bring the spirit and imagination of Black Rock City to the Bay and help create the 2018 incarnation of “Black Top City” — an urban version of Burning Man along the historic Bayshore waterfront at the historic Potrero Power Station! Our community will once again create a wonderful microcosm of BRC, with art, mutant vehicles, theme camps, inner- and deep-playa, performance, and discovery – in a black-top setting at a brand new location!
