The best way to get gigs at Burning Man is to be involved in your local Burner community. I have never had a problem getting at least 2 gigs throughout the week but, then again, I wouldn't want anymore gigs than that. I am too busy having fun out there to be worried about being on a schedule. Good Luck!!!!

Hey Carlos,

I would recommend talking to some of the other DJ's in sac and see if where they are camping has sound. Have you talked to Paul, Tim, or Dina? Maybe even John Moon?
Have you decided on where you are camping? Maybe you can get everyone inspired to bring out the sound equipment to your camp. I'm sure you will have an easy time finding a place to spin...and when you do let me know, <3 house.

I agree with this completely. Thankfully, there are burners everywhere who are into the EDM/DJing part of the experience.

I LOVE DJing on the Playa! Even the noon spot can be a blast if you're in the right spot. It's worth doing some footwork at home to try and play tunes with fellow burners.

how about making your own sound system ? ............. just rent a couple of marshall stacks, find a wanna be artist to decorate them and you can play 24 / 7 ... i'm up for it, if anyone else is...........

oh yeah..... and kinda tired of hearing from self appointed experts that tell me life is a no go....

you can do whatever you want... that's the whole point of life and especially of burning man..................

i could happily sit and spin from dusk until dawn and if that's what turns me on..... i just might do it :-)

drop me a line if you're interested....

Maybe for some of the bigger camps this is the case, but not for all of them.

This is true, there are camps with big sound systems booming and a DJ and NOBODY in the club. In fact there are more clubs with few or no one, than clubs with crowds......
