Promote your theme camp and events with a promo on BMIR!
BMIR (Burning Man Information Radio), the Voice of the Man, can be found on 94.5FM in Black Rock City and streaming live from the burn at http://bmir.org. For year round audible magic, please visit our sister station, Shouting Fire via http://ShoutingFire.com.
BMIR is YOUR community resource and the best outlet to deposit information directly into the gray matter of the citizens of BRC. Now that camp placement has gone out, it is the perfect time to create a promo telling everyone all about your camp shenanigans, art installation(s), unicorn parade, flaming tetherball court, and/or other events. We would LOVE to have yours in hand before we leave for the playa! If someone in your camp is an audio whiz, they can send us your promos at any time.
Not sure how to record something ahead of time? No worries! We have put together a tutorial for you using the Bandlab app, which you can download straight to your smartphone.
The tutorial can be found here: BMIR_Bandlab and focuses on recording using a smartphone.
Once you have something recorded or if you have any questions, please email your promo before Friday, August 18th, 11:59 pm, your time zone, to : firstname.lastname@example.org
Important notes :
- Remember to let people know the basics: what, where and when.
- As Burning Man has grown, we ask that you please keep announcements to under :60 seconds and send them to us in any of the following audio formats: .wav, .m4a, or .mp3.
- Please record at 44.1/16bit.
- If you are using the Bandlab app, there is no need to worry about specs unless you have changed from the default settings.
- Please don’t send us 10 announcements for all of your individual events, we will not run them all. Most camps send 1 announcement, two max.
Can’t make the August 18th deadline? You can also put your announcements on a thumb drive and hand deliver them to BMIR on the playa. BMIR is located near Center Camp, 5:45 and Esplanade, you cannot miss us.
Now if you just cannot pull this off, we have got you covered. The BMIR Production Studio will be open every day from 12N to 4PM, Monday through Friday, during the event. Join us and our fabulous production crew will help you record an announcement right on the playa. Please note, given the current pandemic, we are highly encouraging promos be pre-recorded and either sent to us via email or handed off via a USB in order to limit the amount of indoor contact our staff will encounter.
You can also tune in to BMIR as you drive through the dusty northern Nevada wastelands and you’ll be able to stream us through your smartphones via the IHeartRadio app. We will, if everything goes smoothly, be live from Burning Man sometime on Thursday August 24th. You will want to check in with us to find out about what’s happening on the playa, how the city is coming together, and to get any late breaking news you need to know (like traffic, travel, weather alert, conditions at the gate).
Check out BMIR.org as we get closer to the burn to stream live via the IHeartRadio app and as always, don’t forget to bring an FM radio!
