In the Fall of 2015, HUSHconcerts and Another Planet announced that after an incredible 15 year run, Sea of Dreams would be taking a short hiatus.

For those 15 years, Sea of Dreams has been San Francisco’s most creative, spectacular, and lavish New Years event. Created by underground spectacle-makers anonEvents, S.O.D. production is now overseen by a partnership of anonEvents, HUSHconcerts and Another Planet Entertainment at the historic Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. Sea of Dreams has become the perfect connection of high-end talent, top-tier performance-art and decor with underground support and energy. Drawing much of its inspiration from the Burning man community, the vast majority of the audience comes in costume and the entire venue is crammed with art of all kinds. Past acts include Thievery Corporation, Pretty Lights, Bassnectar, String Cheese Incident, Little Dragon, Gogol Bordello, Flying Lotus, A-Trak, Dillon Francis, Beats Antique, Ozomatli, STS9, Shpongle, Amon Tobin, Ghostland Observatory. Balkan Beat Box, Tipper, Modeselektor, the Yard Dogs Road Show, The Dresden Dolls, Adam Freeland, Bassbin Twins, Gaudi and Freq Nasty.
