Velvet Soulmine
A cozy, chill space with small scale interactive art projects, body painting by Jody, a seam busting Vodka party (8 years running), all in a plush, warm, womb-like environment. For 2005 we are adding daily "unconscious" down time and high consciousness therapy sessions/dream interpretation. We haul it out from the ATL and try to share a little southern hospitality and unqualified psychoanalysis with our playa neighbors.

Vertical Camp
Come see the future of Black Rock City. At Vertical Camp we answer the age-old question — "What happens when BRC runs out of space?" The answer is simple — We go Vertical! In the age of suburban sprawl, come breathe the fresh air of dense urban living at its finest. And as if that weren't enough, we've got yoga too — daily classes around 2pm. Come by for a more precise schedule.

Having more fun than you since 2004!
Wheeeee!Villle will once again become the home in the dust for the 3playa community, a virtual group that spans the globe loosely disorganized around it's own fecund bulletin board interaction. Many of the denizens have been conversing together online for years, while others have only recently begun adding their contributions to the sparkling stream. During the year, board traffic leads, via no clearly specified process, to frequent opportunities for face-to-face messing about (often involving drinks, hot tubs, and usuallyfire) among different combinations of folks. Between rounds, this community of imaginary playamates recognizes that a Burning Man village is our annual excuse to summon the largest number of us to come out and play.

Wheeeee!villle is the result. It is our collective gift to the Black Rock City, a place to share our passions, including drinks and fire, with whatever BRCitizens happen to wander by. Theme camps within the village will lure in unsuspecting dustmonkeys and enthrall them in a number of highly varied, moderately disturbed ways:

Smite Camp returns for its mumbleth year to once-again deliver playa justice on a stick. And croquet.

Barbie Death Camp & Wine Bistro brings back the sick-not-funny art of the friendliest concentration camp on the playa.

DonutLove serving beverages and keeping cool under the Big-Ass Tent.

Dreamtime weaves stories and word play, beer and sauruses into a fantastic fabric of perpetually renewed possibility drinking, spanking, mask-making and storytelling.

antronia providing cardboard boxen so that you can build a fort for your own inner child.

Playa Air Layover Lounge Breakfast by Jane Eric, evening airport lounge cocktail hour by Cap'n Pesky.

Loose Nuts gathers a jumbled collection of probably 50-60 wildly interactive individuals to bring life to the spaces between the other camps. Tom will bring back his shady rest and bar, offering drinks and massage. Downunderstan will drink with you, sing with you, spank you, but are not bringing the koalas this time. stu will be caffeinating the neighborhood. Come plot and scheme to take over the world at Surlystan and drink vast amounts of arabic coffee. Velvet and Ronnie will be sitting in a tree. Xan will besupervising activities involving kielbasa and pierogies. Zephryus will position his mobile DPW drink donation site within the friendly confines.

Winking Lotus
Winking Lotus, we're the people behind the wink, the Burning Man theme camp with the golden stupa. Guided by our illustrious ringmaster, the Oracle of Teaz, we delight our guests with opulence and acts of unanticipated hospitality. In our slightly wry, but reverent, interpretation of a Southeast Asian temple (our golden stupa), we provide space for grounding and personal healing. Come relax with a warm cup of tea, receive guidance from the Oracle and his puppets, enjoy yoga, fire arts and musical performance, or dance like a sacred monkey to what might be the most hypnotic and high quality sound at Black Rock City.

Our goal is to create a grounded, safe, sacred place within the fabulous chaos that is the BRC Playa. With minimal effort, we will support and empower our Tribe, and allow from for relaxation and photosynthesis.
We will be actively and creatively recharging our bodies and souls through yoga, meditation, music making, tea sharing, and storytelling. BRC citizens will be welcome into this space to interact on such a level with powerful art and visionaries; we seek to communicate with our tribe and explore the shift that is so necessary for our culture to make in order to evolve and survive.
