Today is Day TWO of our ticket window for your 2019 Flipside tickets. If you haven’t started the process, you may want to get on it! The date range is important because:

– You have to register your ticket request on the website during this date-range, and

– You have to mail in your completed ticket request during the same date-range. It’s the second most important date range of the event (the most important date range ends on Memorial day, if you get my drift).

Want to ensure you get your tickets this year? Check out the dates and details here.

Ignition Philter’s Second Year!

Ignition Philter (the independent art grant organization) had a fantastic first year at Burning Flipside. There were puppets and pay phones and blinkies and music and fire, oh my! We had 32 applications and were able to give away money for 16 pieces. For a refresher of whose art you helped pay for, see the list of last year’s winners.

2019 is coming and we’re ready to not be freshpeople. We learned a few things and are ready to go bigger and weirder next year. In addition to funding more projects, we have plans to work towards being a 501c3 when the 2020 Flipside comes around

Want to learn about our upcoming plans and how you can help? Check out our post here for more details.
