2018 Theme Camps
F.U.Ego Stage Bar & Lounge
Camp Fuego hosts the F.U.EGO Bar, No Mercy Stage & Backstage A/C Lounge, serving daily the playa’s only ORGANIC SNOW CONES and hosting “No Mercy” and “Mo’ Mercy” karaoke parties, an open mic and DJ’d dance parties. DJs and musicians welcome!
Choose any mixed drink, spiked cone, cold craft beer or hard cider.
“No Mercy” karaoke singers agree to be cut off at any time for any reason or no reason at all, gong standing by. “Mo’ Mercy” means well-keyed voices chime in, mic volumes magically adjust and the performance sounds great.
ALL PARTICIPANTS gain access to Fuego’s Backstage VIP A/C Lounge!
Look for Camp Fuego’s namesake Art Installation, “Fuego”, a life-sized stretched barbed-wire prancing HORSE with flame effects coming from her eyes and mane.

Once upon a time, a group of friends decided to go to this Cacaphony Society-sponsored event out in Black Rock Desert. Over next few years they convinced many of their friends to join them out in the desert. Much merriment was had, and in 1994 Fandango proper was born. Over the years our Village has grown to at times include the SLO-Orbitals, MoTown, Butterzone, Haiku-for-Beer, The Blight and other sub camps.
So now we are a big ole village with members spread all over. Nothing has changed, and everything has changed. These are our people. We are our people. Welcome to Fandango.
