BUILDING BRC 2000

Building of Black Rock City 2000
Aug 15-27, 2000

The DPW started working on infrastructure in July at a staging area known as the 80 acres, located 10 miles to the north on a neighboring ranch.

On Aug 15th, they officially moved off 80 acres and took up residence on our patch of playa. These are the participants who spend most days surveying streets, putting up signs, constructing a power grid and building the Man, working long, hard hours in 100+ degree temperatures.

Check the progress and watch as this magical mirage materializes before your very eyes! Welcome to Black Rock City, population 50.
