Ghost Ship 2016: Atlantis
Strap on the scuba gear, rev up the time machine and take the plunge into the subterranean city of Atlantis. Ghost Ship, the Bay Area’s most beloved Halloween event is back for its 9th year at the gargantuan Pier 70 in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco. Ghost Ship Halloween has dropped jaws and thrilled thousands with unparalleled original art installations schemed and built from scratch from recyclable materials and enjoyed only at Ghost Ship. In 2016, Ghost Ship will again run for two huge nights, Friday, October 28 and Saturday, October 29. For the first time ever, Ghost Ship will feature an elevated 2-floor VIP-access mezzanine with prime views of the main stage and fully hosted bars.
VIP ticket includes fully hosted bars in the beautifully tiered mezzanines overlooking the main stage with speciality cocktails, beer, and wine from 9pm-1:30am. VIPs also enjoy a separate expedited entrance, coat check express line, premium restrooms, exclusive lounges and seating, and light complimentary horderves.
With past events boasting a Victorian-era Ghost Ship, a 1930s cruise ship, an alien space craft hovering over a zombie ghost town, a massive nuclear submarine, a 40’ tall Clipper ship, and last year’s atomic stage, the MAKE BIG ART! team is incorporating the mezzanines and other new spaces into their most ambitious outlay ever. 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 SOUNDS of ATLANTIS
The soundscape of Ghost Ship will be electrified by multiple stages hosted by top DJ crews featuring more than 50 of the Bay Area’s finest DJs. Friday, October 28 will feature DJ sets by DIRTYBIRDsuperstars JUSTIN MARTIN and J. PHLI and a live performance by Toronto’s legendary house trio THE NEW DEAL. On Saturday, October 29, we present legendary electronic acts THE ORB and DJ DAN, and the triumphant reunion of the 20+ piece indie techno circus THE MUTAYTOR. As always, Ghost Ship’s attendees provide the final touch of artwork with original costume culture that annually raises the bar on spectacle.
