Thunder Gumbo presents SLUMBERDOME

Thunder Gumbo presents SLUMBERDOME


This is a Burning Man Fundrager for Thunder Gumbo's hand-crafted twenty foot tall art car + sound system to go to Burning Man and lots of other Fun Places this summer. Thanks for your support! Join our Facebook group to stay in the loop.


SLUMBERDOME. The ultimate gladiatorial pillow fighting arena to prove your worth and dominance, but gently, tenderly. A pyjama party, a teenage sleepover soiree, a safe place to dance your heart out. A place to play with your dreams and nightmares.

In celebration of the annual International Pillow Fight Day, we're putting together a party who's theme is all about the tender, restful dream space of pillows and the intensely competitive and explosive act of pillowfights. Come dressed for a teenage sleepover party, to engage in tribal pillow fighting warfare, to dance like you do in your dreams.

The Thunder Gumbo party crew and Burning Man camp is simply ecstatic to present a night of diverse, participatory, experimental programming across three stages, in the same venue as our Freezing Man and Mardi Gods fundraiser events. We will be hosting amazing music, unique live performance, and Deep Weird from members of our extended community and special guests we admire from other tribes.

Come out and dance. We're cooking up something good.
