Sakénoma is a seasonal saké bar and modern day stage coach stop, located in BRC NV. It appears like a mirage in late August and then fades away without a trace. We serve ice-cold saké during the hottest part of the day and close at night. The refreshment we provide has helped to establish Sakénoma as the premiere Saké bar on the playa. The slight acidity of the saké pairs nicely with the alkaline properties of playa dust. Our bar is an oasis of calm in an otherwise chaotic world. The encampment provides shade and liquid refreshments to any playa traveler. Our cascading fountains provide an audible lanscape of tranquility and has been known to transport the open minded to an alpine waterfall. In addition to the obvious health benefits of Sakénoma and its famous cold saké, we also offer advanced eyewear cleaning. We welcome you to visit Sakénoma, leave refreshed and see the world more clearly.

Conjuring the four elements through the medium of human experience, we invite the Burning Man community to join us in our quiet, reflective triple Do-Me Dome to explore the emotional and mental underside of your previous night's playa play. Ponder your possible futures with one of our clairvoyant soothsayers or discuss the mysteries of the universe with other philosophically-oriented burners. Add to your list of escapades by coming to our second annual fire opera — Burning Hope/Naked Fear — performed within our mirrored poi spinning circle. Also look for the debut of Salon Soleil on wheels with this year's new Buddhavehicle, bringing you a special delivery of enlightenment.

In addition to providing staffing for Radio Electra, SCARAB (Society for Creative Arts & Radio at Burning Man) prides itself on its unique art pieces and art vehicles, interactive events, and dedication to the Principles of Deep Fun. Now in its 5th year as a spin-off of the Solo Collective, this year's camp theme ties directly to the overall BM art theme, and is symbolized by two Shiva figures having a tug-of-war between "hope" and "fear." Variations on this theme will appear in camp events and art projects. SCARAB is also the home of WaltSnipe's annual Tuesday night community dance, with a different world music theme every year and free CDs of the night's mix to the first 50 dancers.

Signs of the Times
Hope and Fear... dichotomies that make one's outlook on the future a foreseeable prophecy. We will be making signs to be placed all across Black Rock City so that people may choose their path in life. Some will be obvious antonyms.

Sloth Camp
We are hopeful people. We do not come from the land of plenty. We are Sloths. Although we appear to be slow - we have highly evolved brains and we do not fear the future, we embrace it. We challenge ourselves to move everyday (some days are better then others). Were it not for the interactive nature of our camp - we could perish before the end of the week. Please come by and share your thoughts - slowly. Bring us your wit and walk away knowing that you may have saved a sloth from distinction. Our future lay in your hands. Won't you help a sloth today (Sally Struthers helped us once)?

Space Virgins Light Continuum
The Space Virgin theme camp has participated in Burning Man since 1994, out of which we have developed an active, year-round arts collective, a non-profit arts organization with a mission to develop community through large scale collaborative art projects. As a theme camp, the Space Virgins have repeatedly provided Burning Man participants with the opportunity to ritualistically cleanse themselves of their mental baggage, or re-virginize. We structure our interactive art projects to produce transformative experiences that help people let go of the anxieties and inhibitions that develop over the course of a life time, so that they might experience joy to its fullest potential. In past years we have performed revirginization rituals, provided demon workshops, created a crashed space ship from which space virgins leapt to help earthlings burn their inner demons, and burnt a sacrificial virgin goddess. We constructed a Parthenon facade as a testament to the virgin goddess, Athena, to provide a place of joy. Last year, the Space Virgins built the Temple to the Ruined Mind to provide a place for people to act out the battle between their id and their super ego, to reflect upon the anxieties that inhibit them and reinvigorate their hedonistic, pleasure-seeking id. This year, the Space Virgins are providing a Docking Station for weary travelers to rest and refuel. The docking station will also house a communication link through the Tweakin' Beacon to The Oracle on our home planet of Luminous Flux. Come, relax, refuel, and seek the sage advice of The Oracle.

Spike's Vampire Bar
The time has come again to die and be reborn as an immortal child of the night in our dark den of drinks, dancing and divine decadence. From dusk until dawn you can dine on the fresh blood of our victims as it flows directly from the source. Dance until you expire to the constant melody of our coven's extensive collection of Goth and Industrial dirges. Explore the majestic art of pole dancing on the anointed poles of our sacrificial stage. Watch as our Shamans of fire perform their mystical ceremonies of demonic revelry on our cursed stage of the flame, which is also open to any mortal, minion or master with the courage to entertain the deviant hordes.

For those of you who fear the intensity of our midnight bacchanal, our human minions will offer several daytime experiences to ease your introduction into our macabre world. As the vampires rest, enjoy the bar in a more relaxed setting where you can dance to music of a wider variety, taste our libations and find solace from the heat of the sun.

Starlight Express
What is the future? Can it be anything more than a blank stare out the window, half-mindedly watching the kids loiter in front of the bodega? Is it really a Metropolis of glistening chrome and universal health care (which, of course, no one will need in the future).

Or is it us; here and now, set free in the blank slate desert of Black Rock?
Starlight returns: yep... we're the unnecessarily large fake fur stars that show up wherever there's a bar with a blender. We're there in the art cars, bumming rides to wherever we can get to (is there any specific place to be at Black Rock, by the way?... this isn't a trick question: if you have an answer, please advise).
