These fares do not include your Burning Man Festival ticket. See the "Event Ticket Info" section for information about purchasing a ticket through us. The food fund covers all of your meals and is not optional.

The people who attend Burning Man are no mere "attendees," but rather active participants in every sense of the word: they create the city, the interaction, the art, the performance and ultimately the "experience." Participation is at the very core of Burning Man, and there are many ways to participate. - Excerpted from the Burning Man website.


Express yourself through your playa dwelling. Your tent is your home on the playa -- why not make it an extension of yourself in some way? Fabric paints, markers, banners and flags of your country of origin (securely fastened, please) are a few ways to liven up your fabric castle. What do you want your tent to evolve into? A plant? A body part? An animal? Have fun with your transformation, but remember not to use anything that can come off and become litter.


Need to release your inner belly dancer? Have a secret longing to wear lingerie in the daylight hours? Black vinyl your thing? Bring it, baby! The playa is a perfect place to shed the t-shirt and shorts look and dress in something you've always wanted to wear. What happens on the playa stays on the playa so let your fashion party fly in the face of conventional dress codes. Bring it, wear it, rejoice in the freedom of becoming your fantasy figure.


Why wait until you arrive to plan your adventures? Here are a few events that you can sign on for right now:

Dragon’s Den DianPu market stall. Wait, what?

Their team will provide the Dragon’s Den DianPu market stall at Burning Man’s 2014 CARAVANSARY

Please watch this short video and meet the team!

They are looking for volunteers from China or people that have lived in China! Please email Deanna at deannagreergmailcom if interested:

The design of the “Middle Kingdom- Dragon’s Den DianPu” consists of 2 long fabric calligraphy panels that simultaneously create the walls and bellowing ceiling. These are held in place by 4 simple and sturdy 2×4 panel module frames. The framework simultaneously holds the panels and LED battery powered Chinese lanterns. Cool, right?

Local art builders wanted!

Help build a 30' Volcano called Paha'oha'o. The lumber is here and they need to get cracking! The studio is located on Treasure Island. Perfect!

Be part of a human perimeter on Burn Night!

You would be part of a 20 person human perimeter, led by Perimeter lead, to ensure that there is a safe zone outside perimeter while a gorgeous multi-faceted giant skull burns.

Work is from 11pm Sat, through the fueling and lighting of sculpture at Midnight, until the sculpture falls which will be around 1pm latest. Information about the artwork:

Be part of the Tradition

The Lamplighters begin EVERY EVENING of the event in their center camp workspace at around 5pm. The ceremony begins around 6, and soon the work is done. No experience is required. They welcome virgin and seasoned burners alike. One thing is certain though. They can't do it without YOU.

If you'd like to be a Lamplighter, please take the time to fill out the Volunteer Questionnaire and be sure to mark 'Lamplighters' as the group with which you want to volunteer.
