Theme Camps, Sound Camps and Artists

are what makes Idaho Decompression a success!

How will YOU participate? 

2017 was so amazing - how can we add even more to the map in 2018?



THEME CAMPS and SOUND CAMPS get extra love and special placement with early entry.  We will announce here when placement applications are open for 2018. Create the environment you want to share with your community. Inspire an inviting space and encourage folks to share it with you. If you plan to use amplified sound in your camp, you are a SOUND CAMP and must submit an application so that we can place you appropriately.



ARTISTS - Art is the key part of Burning Man and we would like it to be a major part of deCOMPression. While we are a small community, we STRONGLY encourage artists to create. Artists are amazing and we love you long time. Wanna bring and display your art??  We will announce here when placement applications are open for 2018.

Art grants are currently closed, but check back in the future to help fund your ideas! We generously grant to artists in order to help them bring their creations to life. 



BURNING ART - If you want to burn your art, you need to talk to fire@idahodecompression.com by Sept 11th. You must also have a Plan B for the destruction or disposal of your burnable art in case the burn ban is still in effect during the event. We schedule our event past the statewide ban but it is possible to be in effect for our event.


WHAT-WHEN-WHERE - Get people excited about your events and camps by adding to our WWW guide distributed upon arrival at the gate. Have a workshop, performance, game or event you want everyone to know about??? contact Mzfit  guide@idahodecompression.com  by September 25, 2018.


CENTER CAMP - This is the place to hold a workshop, host a dance class, show off your performance art, gather together in a central spot and do something cool.  We will have some electricity available, maybe a small ipod dock style speaker set up.  Contact centercamp@idahodecompression.com to schedule your event or with questions.
