Three community stages plus the People's Mic. Sound by Waveworks Audio and Mobius Acoustics. Look for roster announcements in February.


The gathering is at a private queer-owned retreat center under redwoods in a secluded valley approx. 2.5 hours north of San Francisco. Same place as last year. The venue has the following:

  • shared group cabins w/bunk beds and mattresses enough to sleep 80
  • a full commercial kitchen + indoor dining hall
  • showers and bathrooms
  • electricity & plumbing
  • outdoor swimming pool and jacuzzi
  • a yurt and great room for other stuff to happen in
  • lots of room to wander
  • indoor + outdoor dance space
  • plenty of room for tent camping and RVs

This is not a commercially produced event. This is a DIY communal gathering at a private, queer-owned location. Everybody participates to make this happen. No headliners, no guest list, no VIPs. Just people we hope will be your new friends. So yes, we’re asking everybody to pay. And we’re asking everybody who attends to volunteer a shift to help out: we have shifts for setup, kitchen help, some errands, logistics, and cleanup.
