Sockdrawer is a bass music and art collective based out of San Francisco, California. We are on a mission to find all of our missing socks and believe that no sock can resist heavy bass lines and good vibes.
We believe the party should never stop! Sockdrawer strives to share our love for bass music and renegade culture with the rest of the world by uplifting and inspiring the community.
In the world of vibrations we are all the same, and we welcome anyone who wants to tune into our frequency.
All Sockdrawer events are "Leave No Trace". We work hard to practice sustainability while taking pride in respecting our environment.
We want to inspire in ways that can positively impact the world for generations to come. As we grow, we want to focus our efforts on donating and fundraising to give back to the local community.
Sockdrawer began as a small virtual Burning Man camp during the 2020 Virtual burn. Our mission was to create a 24/7 virtual festival space, highlighting artists and talented individuals from around the world. Our ideas for the future of festivals and large scale participation earned us a Burning Man 2020 Necklace Factory Award and quickly gained attention from the burner community.
We continued to manifest our way into the real world through a series of renegades at small festivals and iconic spots around Northern California.
In 2022 we brought Sockdrawer to life for our first physical year at Burning Man. We were grateful to be placed as a large scale sound camp at 2:00 and C, right next to some of our favorite camps!
In 2023 Sockdrawer came out for our second year at the burn. It was a tough year as it rained throughout the second half of burn week. We powered through it and kept our speakers and vibes going, earning us the 2023 Playa Events Award for "The Best Sound Camp"! We had a rag-tag franken system of bass and we ran it relentlessly until the end. We couldn't have asked for a more fun time with our friends and community!
Sockdrawer continues its never ending journey to find all the lost socks in the world, and we are positive that it requires bigger subwoofers and tasty basslines to find them. If you are an artist, musician, or just someone that likes bass music we want your help!
