This year's annual Ghost Ship Halloween party at Pier 70 was nothing short of spectacular. The three day event in San Francisco's warehouse waterfront celebrated spooky festivities that included exceptional Burning Man grade art installations and attendees with some incredible costumes.
Ghost Ship is unlike any other event as it is the result of unfortunate civic circumstances that led them to this uncommon creative venue space. This year we got to see some of the Bay Area's best independent and local artists which is a true testament of how the music community is like in the Bay Area. We truly enjoyed the experiences that Ghost Ship Halloween brought to Pier 70. For anyone who is looking for attend something that gives back to the community, Ghost Ship Halloween is one of them because is was evident on day one that they built something that is sustainable, reduces waste, and it was geared towards more a local, less commercial crowd. In turn, a lot of the attendees were able to hear and see local artists, musicians and vendors.
The massive three-story mezzanine area at Pier 70 was fully interactive that had fully hosted bars and a prime viewing of the main stage. It was definitely a sight to see when JUSTIN MARTIN and J.PHLIP dropped their all time favorite tracks off Dirtybird, the whole costumed crowd was going off in the warehouse at Pier 70 which brought a very cool vibe that no other event could pull off.
It was satisfying to see that Ghost Ship Halloween actively cooperated with San Francisco's independent art community as well that created a 100% local environment. This Halloween experience was not so much a fearful one but a more grateful one that promoted creative and innovative ideas, music and art. We cannot wait to next year's event!
