There are two rounds of directed sale tickets that will be released, to qualify for these tickets you will need register for the Theme Camp directed ticket sales.

The first round of registration for directed ticket sales ends February 4th, and the second ends March 4th. If you register after the specified dates your only opportunity for tickets will come from the main ticket lottery. Its highly suggested that you sign up for the lottery in any situation.

A registered theme camp will also get placement in a designated area to fit your camp, where you can set up your tents, structures, art etc. In addition to this you can also get early access for camp infrastructure setup.

If you have any sort of amplified sound in your camp you will also have to follow the Hyperborea Sound policy.

But wait… what is a themecamp?

A themecamp is the gathering of Hyperboreans who not only camp together, but bring something to the experience of Hyperborea, you can call this your gift to the event.

A gift can be anything from Dance Floor, an art car, workshops, a costume booth, yoga sessions, plounge, you name it! Theme camps often (but not always) coordinate and decorate their camp around a theme, you would be surprised at how all-out some camps will go.

2019 Temple Applications Open!

Hello Hyperboreans!

The companion to the effigy, the Temple is the spiritual soul of Hyperborea. We are wholeheartedly excited to announce Temple Applications are now open, and will be accepting submissions until January 18th, 2019.

To many, the Temple is a place of catharsis, where weary wanderers can gather to reflect, celebrate, and pay tribute to aspects of their lives past. Here, we hope to find forgiveness, closure, and resolution; a stepping stone to a new path in our earthly adventure.

Last year, we welcomed  “Temple of Release” by the Site 3 Collective.

Along with the opportunity to create a refuge in which many may find peace, we are happy to announce that a grant of $1,500 is available for this project. Details can be found in the Temple Application form.

Temple Application Form:

If you have any questions, please contact art@hyperborea.ca.

Les applications du Temple 2019 sont ouvertes!

Bonjour les Hyperboréens!

Compagnon de l’effigie, le Temple est l’âme spirituelle d’Hyperborea. Nous sommes tout à fait ravis d’annoncer que les candidatures au Temple sont maintenant ouvertes et nous accepterons les candidatures jusqu’au 18 janvier 2019.

Pour beaucoup, le Temple est un lieu de catharsis où les voyageurs épuisés peuvent se rassembler pour réfléchir, célébrer et rendre hommage à des aspects de leur vie passée. Ici, nous espérons trouver le pardon, la clôture et la résolution; un tremplin vers un nouveau chemin dans notre aventure terrestre.

L’année dernière, nous avons accueilli « Temple of Release » par le collectif Site 3 Collective.

En plus de la possibilité de créer un refuge dans lequel beaucoup pourraient trouver la paix, nous sommes heureux d’annoncer qu’une subvention de 1 500 dollars est disponible pour ce projet. Les détails peuvent être trouvés dans le formulaire d’application du Temple.
