Our Decompression party aka Decom is a local reunion for Burning Man participants to help ease themselves back into everyday society after the “big Nevada event” or one of the many regional burns that have been happening all across the world this summer.
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 for participants to share feelings, art, performances, and memories.
You’re invited to our 5th annual Dutch Decompression event on November 10, at Radion in Amsterdam.
It will be an eve and night full of Art, performances, surprises, Hugs ‘nd Hello’s and music, together.
Our Dutch Decompression event has occurred in November the past years, and anything afterwards is typically considered a warm-up for the next Burning Man. There has been an official Decompression Party hosted by the Burning Man organization since 1999. The Burning Man organization has since made the term “Decompression” a registered trademark and must conform to a set of rules.
Our decompression parties are sometimes reminiscent of early Burning Man festivals due to their informality and smaller size.
The name comes from an analogy to diving, where decompression refers to a period of time spent by deep sea divers either in decompression chambers or at various depths on their way to the surface henceforth, gradually adjust to surface pressure in order to avoid the bends.
