Event Information

Burning Man

August 27 - September 4, 2018 Nevada

Back to Black Rock City...

For the sake of space we are going to assume that you have already done your research and have a solid understanding of what Burning Man is all about and the adventure that lies ahead.

This page is dedicated to laying out an overview of the DYKG camp, the amenities it will encompass and a break down of the costs associated with participation.

The principal differences between our camp and any other DYKG event that you may have attended is the necessity for tickets (that are very difficult to procure) and the requirement that we fully establish our own infrastructure and support staff on-site.

Therefore, unlike our other events, we will be collecting a deposit for your RV rental and to GUARANTEE your tickets and vehicle pass. The second round of deposits will be collected in January after your tickets are procured. The balance for camp provisioning and your rental balance will be due on June 1st. Please note that should you need to change or cancel your initial deposit will be forfeited. (This is the rental agents rule, not ours.)

Putting Costs in Perspective

Several people have contacted us wondering about why the costs for this event are so much higher than they were expecting for a, "Hippy gathering in the desert".

The economics of supply and demand play a big part in costs on the Playa. Although cash transactions at the event are prohibited, the vast economic impact prior to the event are obvious.

Within a 500-mile radius of Reno, Nevada, RV rentals are known to increase by as much as 4-times. Part of this is based on the enormous demand of 70,000 burners communing on one location and, in part, because of the hundreds of man hours that go into cleaning each RV after the event in order to restore it to pristine condition. For something like a tour bus, this can multiply into thousand of man hours, mechanical parts and even reupholstery before it can return to service in the Default World.

In the spot market, bulk water deliveries for our camp will range $1.00 up to $1.50, in 500 gallon increments. Of course the waste water must also be hauled away and this will run another $0.20 to $0.25 per gallon. (This is something to think about at home when you are taking a shower tomorrow morning.)

This same issue applies to electricity provided by giant diesel generators, each burning hundreds of gallons per day, commercial kitchens connected to 100-gallon propane tanks and all the fuel and man hours to move everything onto and off of the Playa.

If you were trying to think of a less hospitable, or economically more challenging place in North America to hold a seven day festival, you would be hard pressed. That said, only because Burning Man is held in such an inhospitable region of the country has it been able to persist and even thrive for thirty years.

History of the DYKG Camp

In 2016, the camp founders banded together and pooled their resources so the camp could be created. The design and plan were sound though some would say a bit over reaching for a first-year camp. However, the viral buzz created by the cross-country odyssey added a dose of excitement to the camp's premier on the playa.

There was a wonderful sense of place and community created when everyone worked together tirelessly the first couple days to set-up the camp. One of the most celebrated aspects of the camp was the celebrity chef and his aides who, each day, presented a cornucopia of wonderful dishes, achieving an almost decadent status among our neighboring camps. By the end of the week the DYKG camp fulfilled their goal and served over 1,000 hot lunches to the residents of Black Rock City.

Infrastructure Plans for 2018

A key component to the health and happiness of any camp is its infrastructure. Specifically, the plans to provide shelter, food, water, electricity, waste management and community structure and how they are executed. Ultimately, we have again settled on an all-inclusive budget of $500 per day, per person for camp fees. Tickets, vehicle passes and rentals are managed separately.

For 2018, our plans include: expanding our camp power grid, creating a new larger private lounge, and building a new DJ booth with upgraded sound system.

For guests needing accommodations tents, late model trailers, motorhomes and tour buses are available.
