Summer Meltdown is a unique and captivating festival that has placed itself at a zenith within the Pacific Northwest scene.

From river swimming with thousands of our best friends, to watching 50 bands play on 3 stages, to designing, machining, coding, and bringing out our very own CUBIX modular stage system and Sensatorium interactive art installation - this event has placed itself in our hearts as a highlight of each summer.

THE SENSATORIUM


The Sensatorium showcases a wide range of emerging technologies and Sensebellum art pieces designed to immerse any festival goer into a multi-sensory, interactive experience!

The Sensatorium comes complete with a cadre of our ever popular art pieces - The Sandboxes of Life, a wave pool oscilloscope, a DIY microscope station, 3D printers supplying endless mind opening objects, a multi-sensory beat station, and of course, the lovely mix of the CUBIX with live plants. The microscope station was a huge hit at this event encouraging the examination of the surrounding world in a new way for many people!

WORKSHOPS & THE FESTIVAL


The final piece of the puzzle is the curation and coordination of workshops and art installations throughout the festival grounds. This is a great opportunity for us to meet and collaborate with artists from all around the region! Our second dome also made a great space for many artists to present their work.
