Finally got a log in after years of reading. For some reason this thread hit a nerve with me and prompted me to post.

I have been attending every year since 02, so I have some background.

I wish that that the playa was like before when there were no DJ lists. No pre-announcements on social media about this world renowned DJ, or this performer, or this marquee for this sound camp. Nothing. Just like my first number of years.

Don't get me wrong, I am a dnb head and go to EDM shows all the time in the default, but I wish that the pre-announced DJ line ups would end. I think too many people are starting to look at the event like it's a regular show, with set times for superstar performers, for viewers to show up to and watch.

To me, it has added an element of commercialization to the event and is subverting the spirit of the culture. It is now attracting attendees that go to or hear about the event because Bassnectar, or Freq Nasty, or whoever are playing, and aren't thinking about how they can be the performers, entertainers, providers, or participants.

I liked before where you just ended up wherever you were, and happened to find a spectacular show, whether it be DJ Dan, or joeblow spinning something good (yeah, they used to use records...real records).

I also think that some of the large sound stages with big name DJs have adopted non-burn (exclusive) behavior like only allowing the cute girls with the booty shorts (not actual performers) up on stage to dance, etc...like a Vegas club. To me, that is a playa sin as it defeats radical inclusion. I saw activities like that numerous times last year and it pissed me off.

OK, I am now ready for my lambasting for my first post.

Welcome to ePlaya! If/when you get a second, hop on over to the 'greeters station' section and post a little about yourself there so we can give you a proper hello.

I agree with you to a large degree. I wouldn't let the thread get you down. They get posted every year, and invariably by people who haven't even been to the event yet (just like this year's), they don't yet 'get it' in that respect, and the whole star power/celebrity culture thing is strong in defaultia. While some of the big camps do what you describe, many do not. If they post a lineup at all, it's on a fairly small page adjacent to the stage - probably as much to remind the crew who's supposed to be on when as it is for anyone out there. Starting back in 2005 I made a point to not promote lineups to the playa events I worked on, and found that in many cases they were that much better for it. Anyways, I digress. Again, welcome to the site. :)

Thanks for the kind greetings trilobyte.

I think my backlash to the post was made more in reference to some bad experiences I had at some of the sound camps last year, and one particularly bad sequence where I about had a meltdown (I will write about it after this). Probably just as much my fault for hanging around the corners too much.

I do have a problem with agregious "advertising" through social media, and massive marquee banners adorning the stages. I also have a major problem when the DJs are up on stage telling you to download their music on www.imaplayafoul.com, and to catch their upcoming shows at so and so in default.

OK, so last year after seeing a large sound camp selectively pull up some booty girls off the playa and onto the stage, and then denying non-booty girls admission, I got really ticked off and stormed away. During my snarling exodus I passed one of the camps with picture boards and panoramics and great shots of temples and pieces from years past and beauty surrounded me . My heart was lifted and the rancor from the exclusivity behavior that I just witnessed began to fade. My friends and I gazed in wonder and reminisced about the time we had at that temple....oh, and the great moment we shared at that art piece. Then we started to hear it coming...faintly at first....then in utter aghast we heard, "I my gosh, you have to come next year...it is so awesome".....AHHHHH!!!!!!!!! Burgin on a cell phone... Cell phone....AHHHHH!!!!!! RUNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!

This should be my next thread topic. Do not talk on a cell phone unless, a.) you have an emergency, or b.) you are not around the population at large. Man, I miss the days when coverage stopped right past Nixon and if you really needed to communicate with the default you had to get a satellite phone (I luckily never needed one, but it was great when people had access after Katrina to check on loved ones).

OK, enough complaining. I will jump onto the Greeting Station. It was rude of me not to stop by first as I have been a Gate Greeter in years past. Almost ironic.

They are not DJ's but I would definitly see The Antwoord perform at Burning Man, or just simply magnificently blend in...

Their last 2012 tour date is in San Francisco on Aug 10-12 at the outside land festival. People should just tell them about BM and guide them to the playa. I want them Home!

im guessing that would be Temple of Boom...

One Point about this...as stage manager for root society, it is my prerogative to control the stage and who gets on it.

it's really up to the camp, and what their aesthetic is.

with that said, i had a hard and fast rule on my stage.

no guys.

As far as the girls go, EVERY WOMAN IS BEAUTIFUL and would be welcomed on our stage to dance if they so desired, and we had the space, as there was a max. allowed due to structural limitations.

i understand what you are saying, however, if a circus themed camp wants only clowns on stage, then that is their choice.

you dont have to like it..

dont visit their camp.

thats your choice.

thats all i'm gonna say on this.

I totally agree, my first couple years in 05 and 06 I don't think I even made it to the large sound camps....My big music date was with the Mermen or Albino at Center Camp after the man burned.
As a music head, I started making my way over to the large sound camps just to check things out that were popular on playa, like Assnectar and the likes.....I did discover Random Rab in 06 after hamsa lila at Entheon, so I started to seek his mellow sets out just for some sanctuary by a large speaker at dawn (really pretty music). Then I started doing my own DJing at my camp. Now I camp at a live music camp and don't even make it out to the large sound camps much, BUT when I do it is Sooooooo over the top, like what I picture the Sahara tent at Coachella or something. It can be a newb trap for sure. I used to make a little music schedule for my camp for fun, but it was mostly for live music, just when you need a little hit of something familiar, but the way it is mapped out these days by the peeps does inspire some folk to just go be bass junkies for the entire week. Oh well, I'm just glad I found out how I like to spend my time more wisely for me.

As far as the booty shorts hot chick thing, that discrimination happens everywhere, there is no controlling it.....For me it's a great sign that I need to keep walking, that these are not the droids I was looking for. :)

I would say if i was told no about going up on the stage I would tell them to fuck off. I have enough ass to equal two of the girls. Yeah im plus size. Big deal. I want to dance just like those skinny bitches. If they can't handle it then to bad. They need to learn some tolerance and compassion.

Ps I made this thread in a light hearted mannor. It was never a OH! They have to be here *crossing fingers*. It was just hey if they would be there that would be cool. Just because some of these people have gotten big should they not allowed to be there? We have billionare google gods there to. Should they not be allowed cause they are successful? If these dj's are playing a free show then cool. If they are saying buy my shit.. then thats not cool. Who ever booked them it should fall on their shoulders for not educating the artist. If the artist stays for the whole week then it falls on the artists shoulders. But when you have an overnight guest YOU should be educating them.

end of rant.

That's it, sell the tickets. Cancel the box truck. Unwire the LED body suit. Flush the drugs.


No Bassnectar.. no Burning Man.


What else is there to do there but DJ worship?

I was a newb last year, (still am, in some people's eye's) and I had a general idea of some of the DJ sets I wanted to catch, found a line-up sheet before the event, plus the litterature they hand out at the gate had some stuff, too. Well, I can tell you.... I didn't see anything I set out for. I would set ut to find something, then, being in a world of sensory over-load, lights and sounds and craziness all around, I would be pulled in a million directions. After the 2nd day, I left my itternary in camp, and just let my self go where-ever my bike and feet took me. I think it worked out waaaayyyy better that way. Sure I missed Beats Antique, the Dirty Bird Crew, Wolf & Lamb, Soul Clap and a few others I wanted to check out, but I found some amazing, new things instead. Don't worry about who's playing when/where. You'll find even better stuff purely by coincedence. Just be open minded and receptive, it'll all come to you.

I like all the remixes I hear and the faster untzy stuff on the art cars and inner city. Tired of the slow gooey womper room, love being affected by it all, brrrrring it BRC, lets see what happens....

Though I have a feeling the outer circle will be celebrating armageddon as usual, as I look for candy in the back streets :mrgreen:

Would love to hear him on the playa. Not sooo much a DJ but the beats are good.





Here if any one wants a good mashup. Love this one. Work really well.
