The tent rises from the playa floor to soar over 40’ in the air; the inside of the tent beckons with hand-sewn silk inlaid gold-colored panels that provide an ambience of romance and respite…Tazii provides a refuge for the body as well as the spirit.

Each day Tazii hosts yoga sessions and music mediation and impromptu music jam sessions.

Temple of Atonement

Temple of Atonement: Black Rock City’s premier BDSM camp. Take part in our sanctuary of decadence as we pursue transformation, education and personal development amidst our dark fantasies.
This is an opportunity for individuals to explore the darker side of their imagination: to learn more about themselves and their fantasies without fear of negative connotations, or social repercussions… It’s an opportunity for supplicants to ask, veterans to play and the curious to learn.

For our 10th Anniversary, the Temple will open its doors to the dusty playa, welcoming Black Rock Citizens.

TOA is a complete sanctuary and dungeon with wall-to-wall carpet, lots of SM equipment & a chill space. It is a place where we make our (& your) dark fantasies a reality. The Temple is our home, our place to be free, and our family.

Terra Nova

The year is 4026 and Mankind has fled a decimated Earth. When fate crash-landed us upon this desolate, inhospitable moon, we had no choice but to make this our new home. Come see how our isolated culture has evolved away from the conservative, socially restrictive one our ancestors knew. Test your boundaries in the Liberation Dome, a free space where visitors can safely explore new horizons with no judgment from others. Come taste an exotic, extra-terrestrial beverage at the Terra Nova bar. We practice Sharing, Non Judgmental Acceptance of Diverse Cultures and Life Styles, Creativity, Having Fun, Nudity, Self-Reliance and Open Minded Self Improvement.

Also join us on Monday for the Mobile Petting Zoo, an event where we dress up as animals and parade down the esplanade in search of petting. We will also host the Porta Potty Punch Party, and Burning Bellies. See the What-When-Where for details.

That Bloody Camp

That Bloody Camp returns with its haven of morning-after repose. We will cut through the dust of the playa and the previous night’s excesses with spicy bloody marys and even spicier servers. And of course we will give you space to relax, connect and maybe even make a new friend.

Hometown: San Francisco, ca

The AlterVision Black Light Lounge

After a two-year break from “theme-ing,” Camp Steal Your Soul—the ones who produced souvenir Burning Man postcards using your photo—returns with AlterVision: An Interactive Black Light 3D Adventure.

Indigenous tribes worldwide defined themselves by marking colors and patterns on faces and bodies. From the black Maori Ta Moko tattoo to the red butterfly on the face of a Mohave woman, from the henna art on an Indian bride to the green and yellow on the weekend warriors at a Packers game, body painting is an expression of identity and communication. It is used to ward off evil and seduce, bring luck, announce milestones, make war, make magic, make merry and prepare the passage into the afterlife.

Step into AlterVision’s Blacklight Lounge, and help us define a new tribe. Don a pair of AlterVision glasses. Leave the world of muted gray Playa dust and enter a new dimension of fluorescent murals and objects in shocking pink, neon green and electric blue glowing in a purple haze—all of it in 3D.

Now it’s turn for your AlterVision Quest. Create your own tribal markings with fluorescent body paint. Paint yourself and others, or let us apply our brushes to you, to become the mosaic, become part of our tribe, your tribe… and a living 3D mindfreak.

And then dance. We encourage drummers to come and raise these painted bodies to a unified beat, at once primal and neon futuristic. Slide and shimmy into the black light, then meld into the mural. And when you’re through, keep the glasses and an instant photo of you & your tribe—as a lasting reminder of what went down in AlterVision’s Blacklight Lounge, BRC 2006.

We are a tribe not yet created.
We are a philosophy waiting to be formed.

The Illumination Village

2006 is The Illumination Village’s 12th anniversary on the playa.
The Illumination Village has grown into an active community of wickedly dedicated artists, and hardcore fans of fire. We’re a powerful force on the playa; building, supporting and burning some of the best and biggest art the playa has ever seen. The Illumination Village is old school fire. We bring fuel, we bring energy, we bring art, and we burn it. Black Rock City loves what we do, loves that we keep the big fires burning, loves that we mix fire and steel, keeping you warm at night, and glowing throughout the year. We’ve built a reputation over the years, and this year we’re adding powerful new legends to that legacy.

The Lost Penguin Cafe

That’s right…there are penguins in the desert. We’ve marched long and hard from the far corners of the globe to converge on our old home for the sixth year.

We hope you’ll leave your fear at the front door as you explore what the future has in store.

We’ll help by offering wine and chocolate. We’ll entertain you nightly with live acts on our stage (starting at 9). We’ll let you entertain us during our open mic times. And when the stage is quiet, simply chill with us on our comfy couches as we soothe you with music. Day or night, our oasis will provide for you.

Don’t miss the return of Wednesday afternoon’s Fleetwood Mac Happy Hour, or our many theme nights. Look for our daily penguin marches and join the parade as we bring penguin love to the city. And be sure to bring your lost penguins to the Penguin Reclamation Center, where they will find the home they so deserve. Or ask about our penguin adoption program.

The Lost Penguin Cafe mission statement reads: Our emphasis is on hospitality and community while relying on our positive Burning Man brand recognition. This includes entertainment for guests, group penguin activities and an environment that encourages comfort, companionship, trust and personal growth.

See you in the future!

The Prisoner Camp 2006:The Village

“I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed, or numbered. My life is my own.” Is that not why we come to Burning Man? The Village offers everything the playa dweller would want, chill space; music that will soothe, revitalize, and condition; liquid libations to liberate; games played on the trampolines; and consultations at the citizens’ advice bureau. All that is asked for in return is a little information.
“Be seeing youâ€Ω

The Tittyman Camp

How did TITTY MAN begin one night I awoke and my room was glowing, a voice said "ucker wake up!! Yeah u ucker"..
I think God likes to say "ucker".
"I command you to Go to the desert. once there, Build a city. Build a city of TITTYS. I command you too. IF THY DOES NOT COVET THY TITTY, they will come 2 by 2," said the voice.
Since 1999 I have gone to the Black Rock Desert with my dedicated tribe, because it takes a few dedicated people to build a City of Tittys. I have collected Titty prints using a special painting technique. I start first by preparing my painting surfaces by sanding and sealing 4 foot by eight foot pieces of plywood. I then paint the surfaces and frame them. These are my building blocks. I apply paint to the tittys and press them onto the boards transferring the prints onto them each titty soul then signs the prints, immortalizing them forever. I build my buildings in increments of 8 feet. Each building is 16 feet by 16 feet. Each panel locks the other panels into a rigid structure, able to withstand 70 m.p.h. wind gusts. And at night they glow under 12, 48 inch double tube black lights. Its a process of evolution, it keeps growing and changing.

With more strange events and experiences than you can imagine, The_Many is Black Rock City’s first post-post-post-CyberPunk strip mall dedicated to the celebration of radical self-expression. Look for the huge olive green shade structure and stop by for a complete listing of daily events.

The_Many is primarily an afternoon activity theme camp, with some limited nighttime and morning activities. We have circus tent-style shade to enjoy while drinking your grog between vodka snorts and getting your portrait done while listening to great music and “being in the moment”. Our “inner sanctum” public chill space will be open for the duration of Burning Man.

The_Many is a meta-camp where people are invited to use our infrastructure. Serving those who want to provide a service or experience at Burning Man but who are limited by a lack of resources and shade space, The_Many are dedicated to providing a persistent (year-to-year) infrastructure to allow people with limited resources to express themselves. Our style is informal, organic and fluid; the camp will mutate on its own, favouring loose guidelines over strict rules, improv over scripted events.


Planned Events include:

KBK Radio Station (104.3 FM) and Techno Music performance
Kanadian Broadkasting Korporation returns with Live PA by Jonnay!

I tell you what, bullies will think twice before they kick playa silt in your face. Yes, Sir! The Vodka Snorting dojo will only be open in the afternoons. ***Snort at your own risk.*** Like your Burning Man ticket says, you voluntarily assume the risk of serious injury or death by banging vodka up your nose. The_Many will not be held responsible for the Reverend Craig’s actions or training techniques.

SubGenius Reverends available 24/7 for Short-Duration Marriage ceremonies, sickenings, healings, fake psychic surgery, ranting and reality test-piloting. Lease your soul to “Bob”!

Jonnay, one of our resident spiritual advisors will be providing spiritual enlightenment and spiritual psychology in the form of tarot readings.

Bike Repair (afternoons)
Need some maintenance on your playa bike? Maybe your drive chain is frozen solid? The_Many will help with those playa bike emergencies.

“Fun Fun Fun till your daddy takes your T-bird away”

Tribe of the Crescent Star

In the brutal wilderness between the teeming cities of the future, along the trade routes of the Neo-Caravaners and the battle migrations of Jihadists and Jihadistas, lie the dwellings of the Tribe of the Crescent Star, sheltered in an oasis of its own construction. Welcoming all who drop their weapons and their attitude outside its perimeters, the Tribe of the Crescent Star offers their guests the comforts of a Brave Old World — for the body: cool mint tea, sweet dates, and mountains of soft pillows; for the soul: the play of light and water, and the music of paradise. By day, the order’s satin banners can be seen by weary travellers from afar; in the evening, the glow of the tent-dome serves as a beacon calling all to the night’s revels.

Dig down to your most primal memories.
Troglodyte takes you back into time.
The “fear” of not evolving, not advancing, not stepping into the future can be our end.
The “hope” to venture beyond archaic, primitive thoughts and conciousness is what drives us.
hear the drums…
feel the beat…
experience the journey…

True Mirror Palace

The True Mirror Palace returns to the Playa to once again reveal the true nature of those that look into a mirror that reflects unreversed images!

Both Hope and Fear are quickly felt by all who even contemplate the idea of seeing themselves as they really are, as others see them. “Will I like what I see, will the True Mirror show me something good? Or will it reveal to me deep dark secrets that I am hiding from others – the Fear can be palpable! Will I see the dreaded “Crooked Face” (a perception which is exaggerated, just so you know)?”

Are you ready for this new view of you? Why go through this? Because the Hope is that you will see the magical, beautiful, creative, alive, happy, dynamic Burner that we see in you, and that you see in us. Our self-perception never gets to include ourselves “in action” – the sparkling in our smile, the love in our eyes, the power we have when we are being our true selves.

Be sure to look for the explanations on the wall, and share the experience with a friend – its the best way to be animated!
