Anything from on-playa delivery of rental gear (RV's, yurts, bikes, forklifts, generators) to meal services, fuel or water delivery, and any other operation where money's changing hands for an on-playa delivery... this applies to that. Read below, and if it applies to you or someone you're doing business with, make sure everything's covered. That deadline's coming up!
Hello Fine Citizens of Black Rock City,
Every year the Black Rock City (BRC) LLC rents federal land from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to hold the Burning Man event. As renters, we are required to follow their rules. This year the BLM plans to widely enforce their requirement for commercial activities to have a Special Recreation Permit. This affects anyone who pays a commercial service to deliver goods to or services at Black Rock City. The BLM will have a compliance team at the event. Please don't get caught out!
This permit is in addition to the application you need to complete in order to work with Burning Man’s Outside Services Program (OSS).
This information does not apply to everyone, just people who pay to have things delivered to them on-playa. If you are bringing in all of your own materials, then proceed as normal. If you have no idea what I am talking about, this probably doesn’t apply to you.
Here are some websites for further information.

Feel free to email email@example.com if you have questions.
The principle of radical self-reliance in the form of transporting your own trailers, box trucks, items strapped to cars & creatively packed vehicles to Burning Man, sometimes radical self-reliance on a larger scale can involve needing to make arrangements with outside commercial or industrial service providers.
If you or your group have contracted with an Outside Service Provider (OSS) that will need access to the event site to make deliveries in support of a project building the city’s infrastructure, the service provider will need a ticket or a delivery credential and won’t be able to enter the event site without one of these two things.
Your service provider (not you or your camp) must contact outside firstname.lastname@example.org Delivery Providers that wish to participate in this program must complete the Outside Services Program Application by Thursday, July 18.
They need to work with us directly in advance of the event to make sure they have the access they need, as opposed to showing up at the gate without a ticket and being turned away.
If you are an Outside Service Provider that needs to make deliveries to Black Rock City, you will need to fill out an online application to be considered for an Outside Services Provider Delivery Credential. If you are a group that has contracted with an Outside Service Provider for deliveries, make sure they know they need to do this!
The Outside Services Provider Delivery Credential is intended for professional, licensed trucking companies, transportation companies and other Outside Service Providers that have been contracted to deliver supplies, typically to support art projects, theme camps, and Black Rock City's infrastructure. The non-transferrable Delivery Credential is available only to established businesses, must be arranged for prior to the event, and is not intended for individuals or private parties.
To learn more about the Outside Services Provider Delivery Credential, as well as the options available to those who do not qualify, please visit the Deliveries section of the Theme Camp & Village Resource Guide:
