Welcome to the Flambé Lounge

Inflame your mind with visions of a new Burning Man!

Flambé Lounge is a gathering of like-minded artists, eccentrics and other PARTICIPANTS. It is one way that Burning Man creates COMMUNITY on a year-round basis; a venue to showcase new ideas for the playa, to learn what others are working on, and to share ideas and information in a social setting.

Flambé Lounge is a forum for people who have experienced Burning Man before, as well as those who are thinking about going for the very first time. It is an opportunity to speak with new as well as veteran participants and organizers; to find potential collaborators and to volunteer in areas that interest you! It is time you set aside to meet friends and begin planning your theme camp, art installation, performance, ritual, or other means of PERSONAL EXPRESSION whether your plans are for the desert or your own backyard. And it just so happens to be one of the most unusual "parties" you'll ever attend!

These events take place in the SF Bay Area. If you live in the area or are coming into town for one of these events, you can volunteer to help in various ways. Check out our Flambé Volunteer needs.

Set your charts for our third annual Street FaIRE with a twist. Instead of pricey food and product stalls, we'll have Floating World theme camps, processions, playa art and all manner of Burning Man 2002 flotsam and jetsam.

This year we are expanding the festivities to include Esprit Park (Indiana bet. 19th and 20th) for more PARKticipation! Bring interactive games and food for a BYO picnic in the park. Bring your art, theme camps and Burning Man videos/imagery.

Express yourself and dress your playa best! Inside Cocomo will be full bar service and a seascape of new Burning Man
imagery. Outside, we will be creating "Black Top City" all over again--but this time in keeping with the Floating World!

FEATURING: A multitude of category-defying interactive performers and live music, Black Rock City DJs, art cars, all manner of Floating World aquatica and--did we mention the best part--YOU! All this on 3 city blocks, a park, and indoor club with patio, 3 stages, and multimedia wall of imagery.


To share your playa imagery, bring VHS tapes, slides in trays and CD-ROMs to the Visuals Check Point in Cocomo or contact us in advance. MORE INFO: Call 415-TO-FLAME.

You can also return found objects and art here at the Greeter/Info
Station...and maybe find those keys you lost on the playa!

Check out the postcard announcement!

If you've heard of this via the JRS, you will probably not be mailed an invite (we are saving paper, mail costs and waste). So, have a look and print if you want a hard copy.
