Over the next 5 years, we will be investigating each of these strange lands, then reconvening back here to tell of our adventures.

While our travels instilled in us a breadth of knowledge, the catharsis of adventure has left us with a desire to share our experiences with the world. Through workshops, lectures, performances, and merry making, our mission is to educate you in the ways of these 5 mysterious and foreign lands. In addition to daily and nightly events, we will also be serving food and drink which we have discovered along the way. And what of your travels? Do you have stories to share with us?

Burning Velvet

What could be nicer than sparkling seltzer water on a hot day in Black Rock? Hint: Nothing.

But guys, I hate bringing cans and bottles of seltzer water to Burning Man because of all of the garbage and potential moop. Don’t fret boo, Burning Velvet got you covered at their “VIP” Bubble Lounge located at 6:00 and E (TBC in 2017).

Every afternoon Monday-Saturday thirsty citizens can walk our Red Carpet, grab your very own Burning Man VIP bracelet and sidle up to the Carbonation Bar. Step under our pimped out silver disco shade structure, chill on our couches under our cooooool water misters, listen to chill house and disco as our Carbonation Experts serve you. Legend tells it even works to turn boxed white wine into ‘champagne’. Sit back and enjoy a simple luxury on playa!
