Re: Asphalt imitation on Playa

Please don't take this the wrong way, but untested alternatives sounds like a really really terrible idea. If the installation is meant to be used as an intersection by mutant vehicles, there isn't really any telling how well your material will hold up under the massive weight of fully loaded vehicl...

Re: 50 Available Camp Spots with Entheos - 3:45 & Esplanade

The link worked for me. They may have a high priced dues structure and lay it on thick with the amenities, but they are not a plug & play/concierge camp operation. They actually do a bunch of events and activities throughout the day and night, if you do check out their web site check their @BM -> In...

Unscheduled Site Outage 7 August 2018

I'm as frustrated as many of you to report that the site has been suffering intermittant outages for the last several hours. It's not you, it's us, and the call has been put in to the Burning Man tech team to investigate. Someone's looking into it now, hopefully they'll get it resolved soon.

A lot of tickets do show up on 3rd party sites that sell for above face value, but to put it in perspective the numbers are significantly lower than they are for most high demand concerts (if you spend a few dozen hours a month each year tracking just a handful of key events, you'll probably reach t...
