Vehicle Passes, Parking, and Tickets

[version française ci-dessous]

Hello everyone,

Some concerns have been raised regarding the introduction of vehicle passes this year. We hope the following provides some clarity and meaning to this mysterious additional cost.

Hyperborea takes place on a finite expanse of land, and it is an ongoing endeavour for us to properly allot space for camps, art, burn sites, parking, etc. We opted to introduce parking passes to promote ridesharing, better track vehicles, and help cover increased operational costs.

Although we understand that this does increase the cost for those attending this year, we hope it is not a prohibitive increase. Making Hyperborea more accessible for more people is and always has been a high priority, and we’re thrilled to provide options such as the Low Income Ticket program. In the spirit of community, we encourage everyone to work together to help cover the parking pass – for example, we have seen some theme camps pooling their resources for transportation, or people splitting the cost across their rideshare.

Finally (and most excitingly), the Hyperborea team has been looking into raising the population cap for this year. A big part of this assessment is how many people arrive per vehicle. Last year we averaged 2 people per car. If we are going to allow in more participants, we need to encourage more rideshares to the event. So if you have that friend or two who really want to come but couldn’t get a ticket, having less vehicles at the event is the change that will allow these wonderful friends to attend after all! Share your rides, share your love, work together! We want you all to be there and this is the way to make that possible.

You can purchase your parking pass for $25 from your profile login (linked below). These are needed for all vehicles, including RVs. Please make sure you purchase a vehicle pass in advance. If there are any parking passes available at the time of the event, we will offer them at the gate for $50.

Bonjour à tous,

Certains d’entre vous ont soulevé des préoccupations sur les passes de véhicule introduites cette année. Nous espérons donc pouvoir apporter une certaine clarté sur ces passes et vous aidez à comprendre les frais additionnels.

Le terrain de Hyperborea est limité, et c’est un effort continu d’attribuer l’espace pour les camps thématiques, l’art, les burn, le parking, etc. Nous avons donc décidé d’introduire la passe de véhicule afin de promouvoir le covoiturage, d’améliorer le suivi sur les véhicules et d’aider le financement des coûts d’opérationnalisation de l’évènement

Bien que nous comprenons que ceci augmente les coûts de participation cette année, nous espérons que ce coût n’empêchera pas les participants d’assister à Hyperborea. Nous priorisons l’accessibilité à tous, et nous sommes heureux d’offrir en primeur le programme de Billets accessible pour tous (BAT). Nous encourageons l’esprit collaboratif et de communauté afin de travailler ensemble afin de couvrir les coûts de la passe de véhicule. Par exemple, certains camps thématiques font du covoiturage afin de partager les coûts de la passe de véhicule.

Nous sommes excités d’annoncer que l’équipe de Hyperborea travaille activement afin d’augmenter le nombre de participants cette année. Notre évaluation prend en considération le nombre de véhicules qui entreront sur le terrain. L’année précédente, il y avait en moyenne deux participants par véhicule. Si nous désirons avoir plus de participants cette année, nous devons prioriser et promouvoir le covoiturage davantage. Donc si vous avez des amis qui sont sur la liste d’attente, vous pouvez augmenter leurs chances d’avoir un billet en encourageant le covoiturage et en diminuant le nombre de voitures. Partagez vos déplacements, votre amour et travaillons ensemble! Nous voulons tous vous voir à Hyperborea!

Vous pouvez acheter votre passe véhicule à 25$ à partir de votre profil (voir le lien ci-dessous). Vous devez avoir cette passe pour tout véhicule, incluant les VR. Assurez-vous d’acheter votre passe de véhicule à l’avance. Si nous avons des passes de véhicules de disponibles lors du début de l’événement, ils seront disponibles pour 50$.

Hyperborea 2019 Theme Chosen

The Hyperborea team is honored to announce the theme for our 2019 journey to the land beyond the north wind.

Hyperborea: Crossroads.

The world sits poised amidst an intersection. Diverging paths laid out before us. On multiple fronts – climatic, political, economic, communal – we are faced with hard choices. Forced to choose between opposing tangents that point at different destinations on the horizon. It seems appropriate, to honour this space of decision and contemplation, this limbo between our chaotic present and our potential futures.

Throughout history, crossroads have been significant in our folklore and mythology. They represent the point of crossing over, the gate to another dimension, the spectral membrane between realms. In this space, reality is ruptured, spirits frolic, and pacts are made with devils. Here, we get a brief glimpse of what lies beyond; the supernatural, the unknown, the magical, the impossible.

Over the years, great cities have been born at crossroads, these junctions of possibility. As the point of convergence for roads and rails, crossroads are where people gather, encounter, and discover one another. Our homes are built around this centre – like the ring of hours on a clock face. Bonds are formed, communities made, and temples and effigies erected. Crossroads are where our journeys intersect – where, for a moment in time, we all walk together, before parting ways once again.

Effigy, Temple, and General Art Grant Dates

Hello Hyperborean Artists and Makers!

The timelines and deadlines for Hyperborea’s 2019 Effigy, Temple and General Art grants have been set!

Submissions Open: Nov 23, Close: Jan 4
The Effigy is the heart of Hyperborea, its hearthstone and focal point. If you have a grand vision in mind for 2019 we would love to hear about it!

Last year we had the stunning “Le Soleil de Minuit” (The Midnight Sun) as envisioned by the Les Mains dans le Feu (Hands In The Fire) collective from Montreal.

Submissions Open: Dec 7, Close: Jan 18
The Temple is the counterpoint and companion of the Effigy. Where the Effigy is a celebration and release, the temple is a place of introspection, remembrance and catharsis.

Last year we were graced with the “Temple of Release” by the Site 3 Collective.

General Art Grants
Submissions Open: Jan 26, Close: Feb 21
Much like years prior there will be various categories of art grants that Hyperboreans can apply for. We seek to enable your creativity for everything from great big art to small – whimsical pieces.

Detailed information and application forms will be available on our website leading up to the dates listed above. You will be able to find all the submission documents on our website during the dates listed. We can’t wait to see what you all will create.

For any questions please email
