Your playa playpen of surreallity a la Salvador Dali — Join us and interact with Dali's visionary art in full transcendental dimensionality of space and time — forget admiring art on the printed page... on the playa we'll invite you to step into your favorite works and become art. But soon you will be asking about the other dollies — sheep, parton, burningman...

Damn Fucking Texans
The Damn Fucking Texans return to the playa for another year of drinking, embassying, entertaining, and banishing previous perceptions of what Texas is really all about. Texas comes from the native american word Tejas, which means Friendship. Really. Texans, Texans-that-have-moved-away-for-whatever-reasons and don't live there anymore, non-Texans, and everyone else, please stop by. Home feels good.

Death Guild/Thunderdome
Death Guild Thunderdome, a glorious arena of foam-covered carnage, wherein the smallest of grudge matches are settled by a combination of bungees, elevation and foam-covered weapons in front of teeming hordes who crave spectacle. Battle to the grinding strains of industrial music and to the cheers of black clad amazons aroused by bloodlust.

DeMaTerial Camp
DeMaTerial Camp will offer a license bureau that rewards visitors with the hyper-realistic experience of sitting at a massive government bureaucracy. Participants will take a number and wait around indefinitely while being ignored and mistreated. Of course it will happen in a true burningman style, with sangria, iced chai and a slew of available licenses and permits that will only be granted once participants fill out the proper forms.

Join us under the pagoda to contemplate the unfolding of fashion over time and tell the tale of your own finery.

The family that Burns together is functional indeed — and our camp is comprised of members of my own crazy, wacky dysfunctional, artistic, eccentric but loving family — as well as our friends and their siblings.
