M*A*S*H 4207th

The least disciplined but most hospitable military unit in Black Rock City, M*A*S*H 4207th has been on the playa since 1999, and a registered theme camp since 2000. Feeling unwell? The doctors & nurses of our unit will prescribe inebriation therapy till you can’t walk, then throw you on the stretcher & haul you from post-op to your home camp or where we decide to dump you. Our well-trained alchoholics will gladly eliminate any surplus liquor you may have. Who else on the playa will hand out military spec toilet paper rations at 3 AM when the JoTS have run out? If we like you, you may get invited to the 38th Parallel Medical Society poker game. If we don’t like you, that won’t stop us from giving you shelter from the heat & dust. While the USO seems to be avoiding us, that has never stopped music & comedy from occuring at random in the mess hall. Travel with caution near our camp at night; The CO & others are avid playa fishermen. From draglines to driftnets to simple fishing in front of camp, no tripper wanting that free glow stick is safe from our master anglers. Carry your BRC issued ID near this camp: random security checkpoints at all hours. Raids & blockades of other camps will occur when least expected.

Mad Science

How many Igors does it take to burn out a lightbulb? Our crew of mad mad scientists, lovely assistants and Igors will help you figure it out. We will dazzle and intrigue you with feats of mechanics, magnetism, light, chemistry and fire and then force your brain to understand the science behind it. Muhahaha!

We have some of the nerdiest interactive toys on the playa like the human gyroscope and the brain-controlled multicolored flame! Daily shows and demos- safe and not sane fun for all ages.

Hometown: San Francisco, CA


The Mad-Scientists have brought you the L2K, the Hypknowtrons, a spotlight talking to space and many other grand visions over the years. This year we bring a new predominant feature to the playa, the replacement for the L2K, a new ring of lights around the man. Check our camp for the new and improved control room and other extra goodness.

Located on the Esplanade, the Mekka Oasis will provide refuge for those adventurous travellers looking to engage their senses, expand their mind, and transcend their world while sharing all their hopes and fears. The Oasis will be comprised of three tents each focused on the primal, the cerbral and the spiritual. Throughout the week the Outpost will serve as a forum for artists, lovers, performers, thinkers, tinkerers, speakers, philosophers, preachers, and healers to interact and share their experiences. The week will culminate with a celebration of the triumph of the human spirit after the burn with music, light, video and interactive art throughout the night and into the new day.

Hope and Fear are two extremes. By showing two groups with diametrically opposed perspectives we look at how hope and fear can be interwoven. Come and see the Way of all Flesh and see how they hope to eradicate the cyborg menace from burning man. If you support the cause, you can participate in our party rally which will be held late afternoon on Friday. There will be hot dogs and balloons for the kids. Not good enough? Come and see the revolutionary Cyborgs free the hearts and minds of Black Rock City’s citizens from the fear of the biological supremacists. If you support the cyborgs, you can show your support by coming to our revolutionary party just before dark on Friday. We will show the Way of All Flesh not to mess with the cyborgs.

Mind Shaft Society

The Mind Shaft Society is reconstructing an ancient Time Portal that was discovered in the late 19th century by Dr. Frank Lloyd Wright. Dr. Wright was researching his distant cousin, The Great Borzuni, who first stumbled upon the Time Portal in the mountains of Transylvania. The Portal was secretly used as a fortune-telling device by wandering hordes of Greeks, Romans, Turks, Gypsies and other nomadic tribes. Originating in New Guinea and transported via the Silk Trade Route, it established a connection to the future under the guidance of mysterious figures.

The Mind Shaft Society is reconstructing this fabled artifact so that you too may partake of its magic. When it is fully reconstructed, you will be invited to step into the Time Portal to peek into images from the future and to examine your Hope! and Fear!

The Mind Shaft Society explores Black Rock City in the hybrid Huracan ~ the God of Fierce Winds from the Mayan Culture. We discuss the results of the daily findings in the Field Laboratory. The key is in the mail box… come on in.

Mohammeds Mini Martini and Erotica

When the sun reaches its zenith and is beating down on the citizens of Black Rock city head over to the coolest Bedouin Palace on the playa and indulge in an ice cold martini while lounging on pillows,poufs,camel saddles and lots of carpets. Lay around Mohammeds and philosophize about life or read from our “Book of 1001 Erotic Tales”. This ancient tome is a collection of our guests erotic stories from the last three years and is housed in a 300 year old book that is illustrated with scenes from past years at Mohammeds. The drinks and nibblies are offered with traditional Bedouin hospitality but we do ask,if the spirit moves you,to write a true erotic story that we can include in this history of the sensual life of the denizens of Black Rock City. We Mohammedans tend to shake our martini thing between lunchtime and dinner but come early or late and you may be suprised.
