Re: Theme camps: how about forming a new festival?

I was thinking that it could be cool if, rather than fretting, all the disenfranchised camps and art cars who don't have enough tickets banded together to start a new festival the same week as Burning Man. Opulent Temple, Distrikt, Deathguild, Disorient, Nexus, Suspended Animation, Animal Control, ...

Re: Burning Man 2012 Tickets FAQ

[quote="trilobyte"]@stretch80 - very well said. With an abundance of volunteers covering all shifts I suspect flow of people through the gates would be a lot better. @Janet Planet - sorry, a do over is not an an option. And non-transferrable tickets are also not feasible, as I explain in a...

Satire has arrived! Awesome! If we can't get all of the art (whatever your definition is) and theme camps out there, it's nice to see them manifest here. :D

Re: 2012 Theme Camps - will you make it this year?

@pipey Art projects funded by grants are *not* guaranteed free tickets at all. I was on a large funded art project, and while we did get gift tickets, that didn't happen until mid-summer (if I recall correctly). And it was a nice surprise. No one was working hard on that project for a free ticket, ...

Interesting. Marian Goodell speaking on the ticket situation and long standing theme camps as well as overarching festival capacity. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBd4LLDye8w&feature=youtu.be <iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/aBd4LLDye8w...

[quote="trilobyte"] @pipey - if it's not already on your radar, there's a theme camp organizer meeting planned for the 15th at BMHQ. Found your posting just yesterday, Trilo. Thank you!! It's on my calendar. And to everyone, a huge thank you for the input, challenge and most of all empathy...

Re: 2012 Theme Camps - will you make it this year?

Not asking you to decide.. discuss. Theme/sound camps weren't always a major part of the event, at least of the scale you see now (Disorient, Distrikt, etc etc) The same question should be posed to art installations, should it not? They were never the size of infrastructure or headcount as they are...

Re: 2012 Theme Camps - will you make it this year?

These replies & the debate is fantastic. Helps a ton for me/our crew to read all of this and have a sense of empathy that everyone is facing a similar issue. It helps to be challenged to think differently. One other point of note is art installations/artist tickets. BMOrg has not awarded art gra...

No smack down. All opinion is welcome here including one of challenge to my point of view. I agree that adversity creates shift & something new & different each time. It's a great way of looking at this situation. I love the crew I work with and I know them well enough to know everyone will ...

2012 Theme Camps - will you make it this year?

As a member of a core team of one of the larger scale sound camps (DISTRIKT), curious as to the affect of this ticket system on our peers/fellow theme camp teams. We began work on 2012 almost as soon as we were home from 2011's burn. We've painstakingly hindsighted and strategized and would be start...

Re: Official "Not Awarded Tix" Thread

WOW. This is a huge bummer. Out of the 13 core members of DISTRIKT, only 4 of us got confirmation emails with tickets - and one of them only got 1 ticket when he submitted for 2. An even lesser % of tickets were awarded to the 50 folks we need beyond the 13 of us, to ensure the camp can operate the ...
