Kamp Go Fuck Yourself
... incoming message ...
Recent events in Black Rock City have been brought to the attention of the GFY council. The "Green" theme of the event this year has attracted an inordinate amount of hippies, flower-children, peaceniks and yoga instructors. This has disrupted the delicate balance of the cities population and could cause catastrophic failure of the Black Rock City egosystem in the years to come.
In an attempt to counteract this imbalance GFY will be recruiting like minded agents to be sent on vital missions throughout the event, restoring causing chaos, mischief and mayhem thereby restoring balance to the egosystem of Black Rock City.
Your city needs you...
Are you up to the the task?

Kamp Kammaniwannalaya is an closely knit group of eclectic artists, perverts, musicians, drug abusers, self abusers, and recovering recoverers. During the week of Burning Man we build and maintain a safe refuge where tackiness is not only tolerated but applauded and praised. Political correctness, simple common human dignity and voting rights are mocked and discouraged. World class Mai Tai's poured by Spanky and floral lai's are offered on Friday nite to ask for forgiveness for our wickedness. Competitive Limbo competitions are rumored to be slated for ESPN. Smore Whore will be making a triumphant return to the Playa and supplying her hot fresh Smores. Free form Island drumming is a staple diet and public humiliation will be found at the Limbo Queen' feet. Juicy Yum Yum is said to be returning if enough eye glitter can be found.

Kinetic Sculpture Racing Camp
Kinetic Sculpture Racing is a human-powered Sport/Hobby/Art-Form where we build “mutant vehicles” that run on both land and water, and we race them for the fun of it. In our camp, we will have Kinetic Racing Sculptures for the citizens of BRC to ride during daylight, and in the evenings we’ll be cruising the Playa, again giving rides to as many as possible.

Konsortium Village is a place of vision, creation and magic. A place where minds meet, conspiracies are hatched and time stands still. Emanating from NY, London, California and beyond, the Konsortium is born. Into Konsortium, wanderers are invited to visit KOSTUME KULT for makeovers and theatrical diversions, stop by The FLYING MONKEY PUB for a drink and groovy DJ sets, check out the psychedelic projections of GLASS BEAD COLLECTIVE and enjoy hoop and other circus art lessons with GROOVEHOOPS. Themed “Dark Side of Oz”, venture down the green astroturf road past the glowing poppy fields to relax in the plushness of SHEIK DJIBOUTI’S SLUMBERGARDEN or stop by the ‘fair trade’ oriented LE KAFE for equitable caffeinated morning energy, pastis or a petanque extravaganza. Conspire, consort and commingle. You are welcome.

As part of Konsortium Village, this year Kostume Kult returns to present the “Dark Side of Oz”. In our Emerald City, we twist inspiration from Oz with other fantastical films, Pink Floyd psychedelia and a dark aesthetic. Flirt with the munchkins, dance down the green astroturf road or nap amongst the glowing poppies. As always, Kostume Kult offers transformations through costuming, body paints and makeup (wednesday through saturday afternoons) but, in this green year, we encourage theatrical participation over consumption and recycling whenever possible. Consult the crystal balls, visit the Witchdoctor of Oz, cuddle in the Munchkinland Lounge, partake in a farcical fashion show or shadow dance at The Flying Monkey pub… As darkness falls, the camp glows green peaking at our annual Thursday Midnight party where we fuse the Wizard of Oz with Dark Side of the Moon and the random insanity that is Burning Man. There's no place like home, indeed.
To recycle/donate costume supplies, please stop by on-playa or contact us online.
