Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, folks of all ages and persuasions.... Airpusher Collective and NIMBY are splendidly excited to bring back the Steampunk Masquerade for its fourth installment!

___)'(__)'(__)'(____ FIRMAMENT ____)'(__)'(__)'(___
For your viewing and sensory pleasure, we are incredibly honored to announce that our featured art piece this year will be Christopher Schardt's (LED Labs) stunning FIRMAMENT! Created for Burning Man 2015, this piece was one of the absolute highlights of the Playa. The Steampunk Masquerade will be the first time Firmament has ever been FULLY SET UP outside of Black Rock City!
Firmament is a 10 foot high, 52 foot diameter dome of 21,600 individually addressable LEDs that blend incredible animated images of fractals patterns, shooting stars, dancing ballerinas, Hubble photos, fire, the Aurora Borealis, and other visions; all while classical music dreamily creates a soothing environment for viewers below. It will be incorporated into our silent disco zone with one of the three channels fully dedicated to synched classical music so that everyone can get their total bliss on.
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE! What better way to get entranced in your fractal fantasies than to do so while being nestled in a gigantic teddy bear cuddle puddle??? Disco Chateau will be bringing out The Bears as a part of a an interactive art mashup! Firmament up top, Bears below.
♫ - Extra Action Marching Band
This Bay Area institution has been crashing parties, invading bars, and blowing minds with its signature "high school marching band on acid," punk-meets-Sousa bombastic style for years now. The tuba players, flag team, and percussion section take perverse delight in twisting the staid conventions of their respective forms - Hiya Swanhuyser – SF Weekly 2005
♫ - cellojoe
Joey Chang aka Cello Joe is the world's only beatboxing, long distance bicycling, looping cellist. He is the wildest beatboxing cellist in the west. By combining cello with his own vocalizations, he has created a unique genre: Classical Hip Hop!
♫ - Special Guest
We have a veeery special guest lined up to do a SUNSET SET. Stay tunned for more details!
Back in the Bay after SMASHING it with Airpusher at Monarch in February, Soul Button's music is beautiful, honest, genuine and sits neatly in the pocket of deep house with a healthy side of melodic techno. Soaring melodies and thriling drops await!!
♫ - Martin Flex
So you wana make that booty bounce?? Martin Flex is one of the hottest new international names on the booty breaks scene. He's a producer (HotCakes, Rat Records) who knows how to drop the 808 boom and send the bodies flying around the room! Blasting out of the thriving UK underground scene since 2008, he currently DJs all over the world from Florida to Spain, Russia to London and now is dropping in on OAKALND, CA!
We've got a STACKED lineup and FIVE STAGES jam packed with our favortie DJs from BRC to the Bay!
