Ok post-apocalyptic ravers! Last week we gave you the DJ lowdown for Thunderdome. This week is your comprehensive guide to all of the shenanigans we have going on leading up to and during what will go down as one of the best parties you will attend this year! So much effort has gone into bringing you a unique, on-of-a-kind experience never done before at a party. So give this post a gander and see why if things got freaky, Dark Matter, Symbiotic and Mush Mouth would make the best damn looking babies on the planet.

Axiom Dance Workshops (12pm-5pm)

For those who are in the know, just taking one glance at the lineup for the daytime Axiom workshops, probably has you wiping drool of your chin. Leveraging Dark Matter’s network into the dance circuit, we didn’t mess around when it comes to bringing you the best of the best to learn from. The Axiom workshops are only $25 for over 5 hours of workshops. Go ahead, find a better deal, we dare you! Take a moment to check out the teacher’s bios and videos here. Our headliner, if you will, is the legendary Boppin Andre. Dre is considered not only a pioneer in his field, but also one of the original creators. You don’t get any closer to the "source" than this guy. He is making a rare appearance on the east coast, so don’t be left out wishing you took his class!

Old School vs New School

Welcome to Thunderdome’s main event! Animation, waving, snaking, showmanship and more is the theme for this battle. Boppin Andre will literally make you rub your eyes second-guessing your state of mind. Top it of with the insane snaking and cobra of 3D, precision waving of Frequency and the undeniably creative, animated Mark Flux. Have someone next to you to pinch you when your not quite sure if you are awake, dreaming or watching some CGI animated rendition of Godzilla vs King Kong!

Showcase Performances

Dinner With Ty

Sit down and enjoy a candlelit dinner with Ty Fingers. We aren’t going to spoil the surprise for this showcase, but expect something way out of the finger box for this one.

Fly Guy TY is one of the indisputable innovators and master craftsmen behind the evolution of the Finger Connect style. This custom performance will surely show you why.  Residing in Brooklyn, NY, TY is inspired to create through the senses of sight, sound and touch. While he is also a practitioner of Popping and Flexing styles, it is his Finger Connect talent that stands above the rest.


Jews + Beatbox + Amazing = The Orthobox

Delaware-based beatboxer, Orthobox will be giving a special 15 minute showcase of annihilating vocal skills. Don’t be too surprised if him and DJ Throdown start vibing off each other.
