What she said.
Ondreya3000, I’m glad you posted your inquiry. It is important that someone serves as a bad example.
From you post, I can only conclude that you would be a detriment to the Event. Sure, there is plenty of Party and Fun at the Burning Man Art Festival, but that’s not the reason for the event. Burning Man is a gathering of artists and people who enjoy art. And it is an Experimental Community. And it is supposed to have no spectators – everyone participates and contributes. A bit of dancing around half drunk is just frosting on the cake.
And creating your own camp is an intrinsic part of the concept. Now, as Trilobyte mentions, there are people who contribute so much that they do not have time to set up their own camp. In these cases, it make sense that others set up their camp for them, cook their food and such. The net result is a benefit to the Community.
But the Burning Man Art Festival is not a resort hotel. If all you want to do is “party”, with everything provided for you, you might want to look for a cruise ship that caters to your age group, or a ski lodge, or spring break in Florida, or some such.
Yes, some of us think of ourselves as gatekeepers for Burning Man. We do this because we feel the Burning Man ethos is worth protecting.
Good luck finding a vacation that suits your mindset.
