Re: Planet Earth...Back in 2014!

Planet Earth 2014 is coming back bigger and better in 2014! We've decided to expand the footprint of the night club. We're adding a 2nd separate dance floor/room/sound system called the "Dark Room", we're also increasing the size of last years main room by 50%. This is the new layout of Pl...

Re: Vehicle Passes and Burning Man Traffic Issues

Eric I don't think the problem is the nunber of passes (35K) It's the uncertainty in trying to figure out how many passes you'll need, 7 months before the event. I know for our camp, which is a 70 person camp with tons of experienced burners who almost all have a decade of burns, its still impossibl...

Re: Vehicle Passes and Burning Man Traffic Issues

There is a constructive side to vehicle passes. It may force camps and individuals to think about how we move things and people to/from the playa. Uhhh... wut? You say that is if that isn't the case every single year. Not sure about your camp, but we have multiple meetings and discussions about tra...

Re: Vehicle Passes and Burning Man Traffic Issues

Whatever happened to people buying what they need and being happy with that? Why horde vehicle passes unless you are planning a black market resell? Because at $40 bucks a pop, you might as well pick up extra "just in case" for camp mates. As a camp organizer, I can tell you it is 100% IM...

Re: What do the sound restrictions really mean?

As a 15 year burner, I can tell you that without a doubt, regardless of what the guidelines are when you fill out your placement questionnaire... The sound limit (90db / 300 watts) in the city (outside of 2:00 and 10:00) is ignored, all over the city, every day of the week. Period. I've been 5 stree...

Re: Vehicle Passes and Burning Man Traffic Issues

I don't want to be a pessimist, but how is 35K passes going to cut it? Everyone will horde and get the max passes (2) when they buy their tickets. it WILL happen, people horde $380 tickets, why not $40 passes? This means after the early bird sales, and the camp (15K ticket) sales, there could be lit...

CARAVANSARY

Looks like a cool theme for this year, I like it.

But from the description on the website... it looks like.... no man base? A year after the most awesome man base ever, we're gonna go all 90s style now? Confused.

Re: Kinda late this year?

I heard on Good AuthoriTAY that it would be announced today at Noon.
Then that didn't happen.
Then I heard it on another Good AuthoriTAY that it would be announced today at 3pm.
Then that didn't happen.

Latest rumor is the announcement will be made as we arrive on the playa next summer.

While the theme isn't as important as the event itself, I still think its important. For me it gives a little book mark in my brain to a particular year.

Kinda late this year?

last year the theme was announced on Nov 30th, previous years, typically between Decom and Thanksgiving, we're pushing into 2014. Is something amiss?

My guess is it must be related to that nutbag judge trying to put a kibosh on the Pershing County deal, what's your theory?

We're always looking for new enthusiastic camp members who can contribute. We also have our act together, most of us are 10 year+ burners, so we've got it down...

What 80s "new wave" songs do you intend to play? Every night we have two themes, an early theme (8pm to midnight) and a late theme (midnight to 4am). Some of our themes in 2013 include: Dark Wave, Goth/Industrial, Headbangers Ball, Depeche Mode, New Order, 80s Pop Video Prom, 70s disco, 9...

Re: I just turned 21, which playa bars are the best?

For the first time ever Planet Earth will have a bar and lounge in 2013. The whole camp is changing from an open air, on the playa dance camp to an indoor, off the playa, 80s new wave nightclub.

So... if that kinda thing is your scene, drop on by!

Hey Rhino, I'm afraid Southern Fried Rock isn't really what we do. I suppose the closest we come to that will be our "Head Bangers Ball" on Tuesday night, but thats not really Southern Rock, more like 80s hair band rock. Most of the time though we play a lot of New Wave, Synth, Dark Wave, ...
