The 11th annual How Weird Street Faire
BOLLYWEIRD: The Cosmic Dance
Sunday May 9th
Ten downtown city blocks of electronic music, art, performances, and fun! Vendors from around the world with unique goods. Food and drinks and so much more! All ages welcome. Costumes highly encouraged.
We're going for a world record this year. At the end of the faire (7:40pm) we will broadcast a special peace song on all ten music stages simultaneously. All participants are invited to take part in the World's Largest Bollywood Dance!
The How Weird Street Faire showcases many diverse genres of electronic music, including Live Electronica, Downtempo, Dubstep, Electro, Breaks, Psytrance, House, Techno, Drum & Bass, World Beat, and too many sub-genres to name!
This year includes music stages by Symbiosis, Muti Music, Rebel Bass Collective, Tantra, Groove Garden, Non Stop Bhangra, Temple Nightclub, Opel, Opulent Temple, Strategik, Le Harem, Aum Festival, Red Marines Festival, Team Infinity, Ultraviolet Carnival, Brass Tax, Space Cowboys, Style/Clash, and more!
New this year...
FASHION ALLEY - a non-stop fashion runway show throughout the day, on Natoma Street just off 2nd Street, featuring stylistic fashions from top local designers and artists, fashion-related vendors, and a music stage. They will introduce you to the world of conscious fashion.
SHANTI STREET - a healing arts area, also on Natoma Street just off 2nd Street, featuring activites and sounds and holistic vendors.
The MAIN ENTRANCE is at Howard & New Montgomery Streets, near many MUNI lines, and 2 blocks from the Montgomery BART station. That is also where there will be bike parking and vip check-in.
There is a requested donation of $10 (or $5 in costume). And with that donation you'll once again receive a Magic Sticker! The Magic Sticker gives you: $1 off every drink at the bars, $2 off the after party, and discounts at many of the vendors. Magic Stickers are only available during the day at the faire entrances.
All proceeds go to the non-profit World Peace Through Technology Organization.
At night the fun doesn't stop, it just moves indoors.
