This year I hope to bring an old 8-track portable tape player so I can entertain with some pre-mixed music from the 70's. Now THAT was music!! :D


What, like Lawrence Welk and Pat Boone stuff?
I'm thinking Peter, Paul and Mary and the Kingston Trio on the endless loops.

Re: House music on the playa...

House music DJ. London based. Looking to spin some tracks on the playa. Hit me up if keen. Welcome Doctorclod. The above posts are very real. It seems that anyone and everyone who can't play a guitar is a (famous) DJ at Burning Man. As others have suggested, come to the desert and see what it's all...

Welcome AlvaroMaruganHernandez. May I call you AlvaroMaruganHernandez? With 10 of you coming to Burning Man, you practically have a camp all put together already. Strictly from a money standpoint, you could buy all your tents, stoves, supplies and food and still have enough left over for your flight...

Re: Any hope for private / STEP / OMG sale ?

Welcome to eplaya. This is very doable, but I would highly suggest that you join your local regional group right away. With some personal connections, you have the best chance of getting a ticket. There is an active community in Paris. https://regionals.burningman.org/regionals/europe/paris/ Good lu...

Re: Beware of Tribal Spirit

It shocks me to see how much cynism there is out there about this. Lots of new burners want to experience the community spirit so they join a camp, and in hopes to meet new people and to have a great burn. The camp, to be honest, seemed like a well-organised one, and everyone was encouraged to brin...

Re: The basic problem with modern BRC

So there is no confusion or ambiguity, the remote, off the grid location of the Black Rock Desert makes this area absolutely ideal for police to train on the use of their Stingray monitoring devices.

Re: New new new lost where to begin

Thank you thank you Tiger Lilly, I will tell you if you REALLY, REALLY want to come to Burning Man, you can do it. If it's a whim or a bucket list check-off, then you'll find it easy to blow off. You can do lots of homework and see what it's all about and decide if it's truly something in your soul.

Re: Is there ever going to be a year that ticketing isn't a hot mess?

Here's what (arguably) happened in the lottery of 2012. People applied for and won a spot to buy tickets to Burning Man. Simple! The system was gamed by those with the means to float the money and have LOTS of friends and relatives (not attending) apply for the lottery. Many non-burners won the lott...

This is definitely where self reliance come in. Many people come from other countries or from across the country.

I am opting for the "Annual Parking Pass", as it is cheaper than the weekly parking pass rate, overall. Valet parking? Nope, I can't afford that one.
I understand there was a proposed VIP pass, but the idea was scrapped due to unforeseen circumstances. :roll:

15 or so years ago, someone set up a large movie screen on the roof of a limo and towed a large trailer with movie theater seats set up on it. I don't recall the movies, but things like that were allowed in the old days.
