Re: Five reasons to love ravers on the playa

I for one find "ravers" refreshing. I am one. I don't mind the culture at all. What does bother me at burning man is the huge amount of older men who build art cars with only 2 seats explicitly with the intention of waiting outside of a "rave" for a young girl who may or may not be under the influen...

Re: BASSHENGE Wants You In 2012

Hey Basshenge...

I sincerely hope you reconsider playing any dubstep on a 100kw system.




I could make a snarky comment about the sound system in your picture, but I won't. I already know what it sounds like ;)

Yeah... This thread makes me laugh. The way that the sound "rangers" work is as follows: If you are friends with a ranger, you get to cry to him whenever someone with a better sound system wants to listen to it, regardless of what "level" it is at. It could be almost off, but if you like electronic ...

the opulent temple has various styles of house music for your enjoyment. Many other camps will have what you need, just walk around. Or, better yet, walk out in the middle of the playa and attempt to decipher which music the 450 simultaneous sound systems around you are playing.
