The Creators Project In San Francisco: Weekend Of Interactive Art, Technology And Music Coming To Fort Mason (PHOTOS)

We can't think of many things San Franciscans will embrace more openly than its heavy population of hipsters and techies. Except maybe a giant, free festival bringing together the ultimate in hipsterdom and technology.

Well, lucky us. For the first time in its history, The Creators Project, a collaboration between tech giant Intel and hipster bible VICE, will descend on Fort Mason March 17-18 for a weekend of art, music and innovation.

In addition to film screenings, panels, and colossal multimedia art installations -- all focusing on the intersection of art and technology -- Creators Project execs announced a killer lineup of musicians Tuesday, including live performances by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Squarepusher, the Antlers and Zola Jesus. To top it all off, LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy will spin a DJ set.

Did we mention this little gathering is free?

Taking a page from the Burning Man playbook, the Creators Project will offer their limited number of tickets through a lottery system. Click here to RSVP, and keep your fingers crossed that you make the cut.

Nerd Bonus: The Creators Project joined forces with our friends at Gray Area Foundation for the Arts this past weekend for a 48-hour art hackathon. The top ideas to come out of the session will be on display in Fort Mason alongside the multimedia greats.

Take a look at some of the installations from Creators Projects past (which have taken place in Beijing, Sao Paulo, New York, Paris, Lyon and Seoul) below:
