RESONATE 5.0 - Saturday, April 24th, Congress Theater, Chicago.

7 p.m. until 3 a.m., 18 +, or

Inspired by the Burningman arts festival in the Nevada desert,
RESONATE is one of the largest DIY multi media arts & music
collaborations in the country. In it's 5th year of inception, this
year's RESONATE features a record number of art installations and over
260 volunteer participants. The idea is to de-commodify art and music
altogether as the motive of artistic inspiration. This idea of
de-commodification brings out the true spirit of the creator. One
must do it simply for the pure love of creation, because there is no
financial gain.

RESONATE is pure in this form of gifting by giving 100% of it's
profits out to the Burningman community in the form of art &
production grants. Over the past 4 years, RESONATE has raised over
$35,000 for this purpose alone.

This year RESONATE 5.0 has an amazing line-up of artists and musicians
coming to Chicago from coast to coast. RESONATE has exponentially
outgrown it's previous confines year after year, and has been moved to
the beautifully ornate Congress Theater (built in 1925). This
graduation has provided the producers of RESONATE with top notch tools
for putting on this one of kind show.

Unlike many other events, RESONATE is completely interactive with it's
encouraging participation instead of spectating. Most of the art at
RESONATE is being created LIVE on site. Giant art sculptures and
video installs are made specifically for you to interact with. Top
notch DJ's and musicians from all over are pushing the envelope on
cutting edge dance music, collaborating with aerial & stage
performances. RESONATE's healing rooms provide free energy and body
work to the entrants by trained professionals. Fire Spinning Poi
dancers will be immersed with the audience right on the dancefloor on
blacklight and LED stages.

Come out to RESONATE 5.0 and see why 'the Burningman community' is
what it's all about. We've specifically kept the ticket price of
RESONATE 5.0 low so all can afford to experience this amazing creative
