Lamplighter Work Space
Lamplighters light the streets of Black Rock City every night of the event! We gather nightly at 5:00 p.m. in the Lamplighter Workspace to clean, prepare and light near 1,000 lamps before we hang them ceremoniously throughout our city. The whole process takes 2-3 hours each night and we'll need over 1,000 volunteers over the course of the week. Volunteers can participate as few or as many nights as they wish! Bring a friend!
