Put on your dancing shoes and come out and dance at what is sure to be a fun evening filled with good vibes, great people and music! This event is sure to sell out so get your tickets in advance.

MARKIE, TONY, GALEN, DUTCH, ANTHONY MANSFIELD, NICO LUMINIOUS, LITTLE JOHN, SEAN MURRAY, MIHKAL, DUSTY CARTER, SMASHELTOOTH, HARRY WHO, DMAJIK –
MORE DJs TO BE ANNOUNCED – stay tuned

The Gathering 23 year anniversary will take place at The Factory, 525 Harrison Street in San Francisco, on Saturday December 13th, 10pm to 6am. The very first Gathering was held in this same location way back in 1991 when it was an old church in disrepair. The event was underground-style with no permits, and we raved until nine in the morning. The energy created helped launch over two decades of top-notch parties.

This will be the very last Gathering at this location as there are plans in 2015 to tear down the facility in order to build high-rise condos – another sign of our ever-changing city.

The Gathering is one of the foundation parties of the San Francisco and U.S. rave scene. At the onset we started as four smaller parties coming together to throw a big community event and bring the scenes together. It has a solid reputation for great music, a positive environment, and friendly loving people.

The Gathering is so very proud to present our 23 year anniversary to help to bring the families together so people can see old friends and hear familiar tunes, experience current music, and meet new people in a positive loving environment.

We are once again fluttering about in anticipation for our favorite annual event, Sunset Campout. Sunset Campout takes place in Belden Town, CA along the breathtaking Feather River July 25th – 27th.

We have been designing altars for our friends and Sunset Sound System community for 12 years, and feel very lucky and blessed to be given the space to express the divine inspiration channeling through us. We love our Sunset friends and family so much and can’t wait to work, play and dance with everyone again.
