Reson8 is upon us again! 04.20.13!

“The Year Of The Snake”

HI There Friends and Freaks,
We are super excited to announce this year’s line-up for RESONATE 8.0 .

Inspired by the Burning Man arts festival out in the Nevada Desert, RESONATE was started back in 2006 as an experimental way to get all the Chicago area “Burner tribes” together under one roof. Moreover, how do we create and spread the amazing creative energy of Burning Man right here in Chicago.

Resonate 1.0 and the ideas behind it were so successful that an entire community was forged from it! Here we are in our 8th year, still growing – nurturing art, self expression, “all inclusivity”, and community. 100’s of performers and artists have volunteered their amazingly freaky skills to make Resonate 8.0 the largest DIY multi media event Chicago has ever seen. So much that we have to build 2 additional stages at The Metro Smart Bar venue (including Chicago’s only legal outdoor fire spinning arts stage). Come and see “why’ the Burning Man community is what its all about.

We are offering a very limited amount of tickets at a discounted rate of $30. Get ’em while you can, the first tier has already sold out and discount second tier tickets wont be around for too long. Once we move the ticket sales over to the Metro’s box office, the price will increase along with service charges and fees. Traditionally RESONATE has sold out all tickets in advance for the last 7 years running.
