In addition to volunteering in Black Rock City each year, joining our Tech Team is one of a myriad of ways to participate in Burning Man. Members of our community were early pioneers of the Internet and more and more technology entrepreneurs and industry leaders are joining our ranks as Burning Man culture spreads around the world. Much like Black Rock City provides a context and container for physical creations and manifestations by artists, performer and builder collectives, this Innovation section facilitates the development of technical and virtual tools, built by our community for our community. Please note that the applications and links shown below are operated by application providers over which Burning Man exercises no control. The descriptions below have been supplied by the application providers, and Burning Man neither endorses these applications nor warrants that they operate as described.
Tracking down friends at Burning Man used to be harder
than cleaning playa dust out of gold-sequined booty shorts.
This free app lets you and your peeps easily share camp info with
each other, generating a personalized, printable map. Just don’t
forget to pack it along with your goggles, led fairy lights, and
Grandma Glitter’s Homestyle Gamma Ray Bacon Baker.

First of all, the Unofficial BRC Map would not be possible without YOUR PARTICIPATION. We’re merely the shell for all your shiny pearls of information! Thank you to all of our gracious contributors!
This is a passion project by a small group of people who love Black Rock City and also maps! We collect placement information voluntarily from camps and artists who wish to share their approximate location in advance of arriving to the playa. Of course, our pin placements are only good guesses and may not reflect reality for those lucky enough to travel to the playa in person. Our map should give you a decent idea of what you might find in your neighborhood, but you’ll certainly find even more and better attractions once you’re there!

A web app that lets you export the full list of Burning Man events & art installations to an Excel spreadsheet for easy reading, sorting, printing, & pre-burn excitement. These are all the same events you'll find on the official Playa Events page, but with Excel, you can quickly skim through the list & create a little quick-reference booklet to print & bring to the Playa. Plus, the spreadsheet includes camp locations, which aren't available on the official Playa Events page until Burning Man actually begins.
Tip: Once I've gone through & made a trimmed-down list of events I'm interested in, I like to sort by "type," then the "date" columns. That groups all the food in one section, parties in another, art in another, etc – and within each section you can skim down the current day's column to see what's happening at a moment's notice. When you're hungry, just flip to the food page! 🙂
