This is NOT a list of officially accepted or placed Theme Camps. It’s a preview of what you’ll find when you get to Black Rock City.

This is the list of Theme Camps who submitted a Placed Camp Questionnaire requesting placement in Black Rock City’s reserved sections for this year and want to be listed publicly.

Placement is announced in Early July. These are the camps Placement is reviewing. To find out what camps did receive placement look through the Playa Info Directory in Center Camp.

To find camps not included on the BRC Map or to find camps that chose not to be listed, you’ll just have to get lucky.

Voted Best Camp

If one were to avoid the unfortunate label of “Fucking Idiot”, one would be wise to call upon the Voted Best Camp. Shuffle your pathetic rump up to the bar and allow one of our oftentimes friendly barkeeps to satisfy your deepest of alcoholic urges. Or perhaps one wishes to try one’s luck on our breath-taking halfpipe. If spectating is more your style, we want you to feel at liberty to marvel slack-jawed at the increasingly ageing musicians playing increasingly ageing ACTUAL INSTRUMENTS. Or just get drunk and spray paint a dick on the wall. Hooray, you’re an artist. Now get the fuck out.
