Every year I anxiously await the Ghostship Halloween party. Ghostship 2013 is being dubbed They Abyss. It has historically been an absolutely amazing party heavily influenced by Burning Man. I expect nothing less this year. The focus is definitely on the art, much like the actual Burning Man event. It is back for the sixth year in a row.
While it has traditionally been held on Treasure Island, it is being moved to Pier 70 this year and is being presented by the Space Cowboys and SunsetSF. It is being held in the gigantic Building 12 at Pier 70 in San Francisco.
For the past five years Ghost Ship Halloween has dropped jaws and thrilled thousands with unparalleled original art installations schemed and built from scratch from recyclable materials and enjoyed for one night only. With past events boasting a Victorian era Ghost Ship, an armada ready steam liner, a high flying Viking ship and an alien space craft hovering over a zombie ghost town, the “Make Big Art” team of artists are hard at work creating a wavy wonderland under the sea. Along with their megalomaniacal schemes, Ghost Ship will again feature original installations by the leaders of the Bay Area’s dynamic large scale production art community, and the world’s most exciting art cars.
The soundscape of Ghost Ship will be electrified by multiple stages hosted by top DJ crews and dozens of their finest DJs, all of whom are Bay Area locals. The attendees of Ghost Ship provide the final touch of artwork with original costume culture that raises the bar on pageantry.
