There are countless varied venues for the Burner community to create, express, and share rich experiences on the playa, and in the default world.  We tried to list the obvious ones, from large-scale art projects to the smaller personal surprises, fiery Mutant Vehicles & LED-lit wonders, Cabaret bands & DJ’s & Drum-Circles, photography & film to social media technology, High-Fashion to max-max playaware, Diners & Dives to Stilt bars & western saloons, Theatro  interactive games for the meek & the daring… the list just is endless!  And those who have been on the playa know what we mean, and for the first-timers, fasten your seatbelt cuz it’s a big magical world out on the dessert!

We encourage you to post YOUR projects via our automated forms.  Or you may contact us directly at as we’re eager to share the happenings with the larger community.
