I don't mean to sound critical, but your buddy DJ (I'm checking this for accuracy) Savage, with so many shitty DJs at Burning Man, if he/she is any good they would not have to be begging for a venue. No offence, but with so many (and I cannot stress this enough) really shitty DJs, of which your buddy almost by default is one of, why would he/she/it want to spend nearly $10,000 to do a proper display? My hunch is that your DJ, unless of course it is actually you, suck just like all the other hundreds of DJs that just want to try and get laid. Your friend sucks as a DJ because if he/she didn't, somebody who actually is part of Burning Man would have extended an invitation. Now go home and masturbate and hope that daddy doesn't catch you. Again.

Didn't last years census say there were more DJ's, per capita, at Burning Man than any where else in the world. They out number the hippies, they even out number naked people. For every sound camp that has 500 people dancing to a DJ, there are 20 camps with no one there dancing to their DJ. I am sure you could get into one of those camps with no one there........give one of them a try.

In fact, the ratio of djs to participants is so heavily weighted that there is danger of reaching critical mass, starting a chain reaction that could have the entire playa swallowing itself.

Seems it was in a book by "Otto Phelaicheyoe"

Definitely try Delusions of Grandeur Camp. I hear they have a DJ Mentoring program for up and coming DJ's who need that extra bit of support so they can feel special on the Playa and not get lost in the crowd.

He may be biased but is a lot more accurate that one might think.
