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!
