Chicago's Burner Community comes together for the ultimate FREAKSHOW!

On Saturday, August 9th, the Chicago Burner Community comes together again for the epic event 
Pre:Playa MASSIVE 6.0.  Started back in 2008, Pre:Playa Massive is now in its sixth version of awesomeness.  Moving the team back to Chicago's infamous Metro venue, the event features 2 indoor performance stages, an outdoor ARTyard gallery, and a slew of amazing community art installs.  

Special music and performance guests include Booty Breaks Queen BELLA from Tampa, Chicago house legend BOO WILLIAMS, Toronto's FREEDOM DANISH, Aeralists TOM HILL and SHORTY BELLE and all your favorite FREAK performers.  

Freakin' ART Installs featured in our 'outdoor ARTyard' include the massive 'The Human Avatar Project' interactive sculpture, Cleverpillar's MAINSTAGE designs, the 'infiniTEA Lounge', ANODE Designs and "Bed Of Bass' by Gordon Kummel Designs.  Your favorite FREAK artists will be there doing what they do best!

Come See "Why" the Burning Community is what it's all about!  We are offering a limited amount of EARLY BIRD discounted tickets for you tier'd at $20 and then $25. After that, we'll be switching over to Metro's Box Office at $25 plus fees. Celebrate with us, as our community preps for the amazing journey out to Burning Man 2014.

Questions and Inquiries please contact:

Ask First : Respect Community : Leave No Trace : Dress To Kill™

You most likely have seen these words "Ask First : Respect Community : Leave No Trace" on community announcements, websites, and events. They are not Cliche', they are our community rules... Following these simple rules will go a long way in making "everyone's" experience a positive one.

If you do not know what they mean, we'd love share some examples :

#1: Ask First:
- Is it OK if I touch you?
- Can I take your photo?
- Can I use this glass?
- I'd like to spin fire, is that ok?
- Where's the garbage?

#2: Respect Community:
- Do not tag artwork or walls
- Do not smoke where there is "no smoking sign"
- Do not interrupt an artist while they're performing.
- Men's Bathroom is for Men, Women's is for Women
- Be considerate of our venue's neighbors, too much noise outside, peeing in their bushes, parking in illegal spaces, etc..
- Locking bicycles up to fenced gates can cause serious problems, think about it.
- People work REALLY hard to make fun things happen for you (and for no pay), please treat them and EVERYONE nice and courteously.
- Think about a little community police-ing too... see someone suspicious or someone acting like a foo at an event... find an organizer or security person and let 'em know.

#3. Leave No Trace !
- Pack it in, Pack it out
- you might have heard of the term MOOP. MOOP = Matter Out Of Place
- See a cup on the floor, throw it out, even if it is not yours
- Sticking Chewing Gum on walls sucks, sticking chewing gum on plants? even worse!
- Artwork w. MOOP-ish qualities not good. (i.e. things that fall off them and become trash on the floor)
- "Feathers" in your outfit become floor trash all the time, good look, bad idea.

These are just a few examples, BUT WE HOPE YOU GET THE POINT!

Burners Unite!
