The Crucible wants to help you get ready for Burning Man, and we're making it easy and fun for you to address those last minute playa needs.
Need a Burning Man Ticket?
We will be raffling off TWO BURNING MAN TICKETS during the Fireside Lounge, courtesy of Harley Dubois. Raffle tickets will be on sale from 6:30-8:30pm with the drawing at 9pm. Winners MUST be present to win, $5 a ticket, no limit on tickets.
Bring your not-yet-spectacular playa hats, coats, skirts, dresses or boots! We'll help you with ideas from our Textiles and Kinetics department on how to embellish your playa fancies.
Cool Neon will be on hand to sell and explain their electroluminescent wire and you can pick some up to add to your costumes and bikes. Don't have a bike? Check out our Bikes program, they will have playa bikes for sale here at The Crucible during the Fireside Lounge.
Explore our kinetics department with our art gallery filled with art that moves, dances, blinks, beeps, and even makes cocktails.
We will have tried and true fashion experts, vending from Tamo Design, Miss Velvet Cream, Miranda Caroligne, SilverLucy Design, SuperSugarRayRay, By Nieves, Miss G Designs and more.
While you are shopping and crafting check out the daring dances from our Fire Performance department accented by large bursts of fire from our Crucible custom made stage poofers. DJ Zach Moore of the Space Cowboys will be spinning to warm you up for the music of Burning Man with all of your playa favorite dance tracks.
Barbara Traub will be signing copies of her book "Desert to Dream: A Decade of Burning Man Photography."
Guests can also check out the Hot Wheels Department’s display of
motorcycles in various states of repair. You can shop for playa bikes! Browse our recrafted bicycles for purchase for use on the playa. Completed art bikes from a few young resident artists will also be on display.
