Community | Roundhouse | Faerie Woods

Community Space

The Roundhouse is the beating heart of the all-night Starwood experience. Please treat it with respect and enter it through one of the four marked Gates. Climbing on the RoundHouse or tunnelling underneath it are not allowed. Please dock spacecraft at a discrete distance.

Fire Monitors

There will be Fire Monitors and Fire Tenders attending each RoundHouse Fire. Periodic instructions by them will be made to the crowd. If you need to know who a Monitor is: ASK a Fire Tender. Fire Tenders can be identified by long pants, boots and gloves.

No Loitering in the fire

Activities such as walking on the logs, jumping over the fire, texting friends on your mobile or any similar activity is prohibited.

Speaking of Mobiles

The use of cell phones except for emergencies is prohibited within the RoundHouse. Take it outside.

Dancing space

There will be a safe distance (approxiatemately 10') between the fire and Drummers to insure adequate space for the dancers. Drummers, please do not impede the flow of the dancers, such as putting your drum near the fire unattended when the flow is active. Dancers, please be conscious of the Drummers so that their heat is not blocked. Stationary "trance" dancing that could impede the flow of dancing will be discouraged. Be conscious of the dancing arena. Keep all personal items out of it.

Please be respectful of the flow of the fire

Be conscientious of your behavior and be respectful of others. Respect others personal property. Do not handle other peoples drums or equipment without their permission.


Glass containers are discouraged for the safety of all. Please discard trash and recyclables in the proper containers. Watch your butts (yes smokers, that means you)!
