2018 Theme Camps

Radio Electra

Bringing you the best music news and commentary on your FM dial for 19 years on the playa. Tune in during the event for music, news, mayhem, and commentary. Theme camps and artists are always welcome to drop off Public Service announcements about interactive events and projects they wish to have everyone know about.

Raditude (Formerly Fer Sherbert)

The goal of Camp Fer Sherbert and its members is to nurture and be stewards of the ritual creative overlord spirit of Burning Man. We do this by having frosty vegan superfood treats to support the hundreds of dedicated artists, volunteers, and citizens in Black Rock City who build large-scale art installations on the playa in the heat of the midday sun. Through our reverently ridiculous expression of this service over the last three years as a placed theme camp, we have created interactivity of new friends, lovers, international treat-enthusiasts, and learned that spontaneous love transcends all spectators into divine interactivity!

It’s like ‘For Sure’, but ‘Fer Sherbert’ 🙂

Raised by Wolves

A real wolf pack is primarily composed of brothers and sisters. We’re not related, or wolves, but we do yell at the moon a lot. Raised by Wolves is a community of artists and doers who gather together in the desert to create epic fun, howl at the moon together and invite everyone in to share our space and run with the wolves.

We serve iced cold brew coffee every morning, have the playa’s most banging hip-hop/reggae dance party—complete with Dark ‘n Stormys—and lots of opportunities to move your body in our dome.

Rude Awakening

This is a sacred space for self-actualization and flow. We’ve built a space for everyone to lose their inhibitions and become the best versions of themselves. We’re a family and community, an LA/SF-based collective of dreamers, artists, adventurers, and passionate doers, that loves throwing badass parties as much as we love to connect on deeper levels. We’re a diverse group of eclectic individuals that operates with deep love and respect on the 10 Principles of Burning Man, that create interactive experiences and magic together.

Play is good for the soul – come meditate, do yoga, boogie down, play with fire, learn to spin (contact and dragon staff, poi, hoops, fans, palm torches, levitation wand, rope dart), fly on an aerial rig, party ’til the break of dawn, jam out, or whatever else your heart desires. Bring your best vibes!
