Hey nicole I had a quick question what is the maximum limit of people noisebridge can have?

Are you anticipating a massive crowd?

Yes between 100-150 maybe more

Hi Oliver,

You should be able to host 100-150 people without a problem.

However you should know that by July 20th, most likely Noisebridge will look a bit different in preparation for its big move to the new space (tentatively 668 Guerrero). Things may be in boxes, or being torn down. We can’t make any guarantees.

You should make sure you check on the state of the space in the days leading up to the event, so you know for sure what you need to do to set up and run the event successfully.

Noisebridge LOVES local artists and musicians and all of it. Let us know what more support you will need.


Chances are good the 2169 Mission space will be in tact that date because we still need to remodel some of the new space to make it ADA friendly before moving in.

We can also intentionally accommodate for a large event like And Friends by holding off moving the hacker art stuff that makes Noisebridge such a great event environment, and only move the utility items (dirty shop, laser cutter, welding & metal working equipment, maybe the kitchen)

We can accommodate this event and still provide a simulating environment, @elmisft, no worries. :slight_smile:
