Home of the Best Margarita in Black Rock City
Brain Freeze is an established Burning Man Theme Camp that began in 2004 and has grown in size each year. In 2012, at the request of Burning Man, we became the Village known as the Black Rock Power COOP. This year we are returning as an individual camp primarily because the administration of the Village concept has become ever demanding. Returning to a single camp means we are of a more “Placeable” size, and we hope to return to a favorable location.
There are many benefits to camping with us. They include a power grid that is live 24/7 (except for maintenance needs), a large community shade structure, and a solid group of people, to name a few. We have the World’s Most Dangerous Bar that serves frozen margaritas and planned events centered around the bar. We have many years of experience preparing a camp and the resources needed to ensure its infrastructure meets our needs. We do not have a central kitchen or shower, so everyone must plan accordingly.
The primary members of the camp are Black Rock FX. We bring fireworks and special effects to the Playa. We have done shows for the Flaming Lotus Girls, Rock Opera, Crude Awakening, Raygun Gothic Rocketship, and Megatropolis, to name a few. In 2011 we burned the Trojan Horse. Several members of our camp are on the Burning Man staff and hold positions on the Fire Art Safety Team (FAST), assisting artists in creating dangerous art safely. And at the end of the week, we are responsible for the burning of the Temple.
We expect you to be cordial to the many guests that visit our camp each day. Your guests and friends are always welcome to visit, but you are responsible for their behavior. Each member of your group must contribute to the overall effort. This contribution could come in many forms; Infrastructure, Art, Labor, & Sustenance are a few suggestions. Below is a partial list of tasks required to make the camp function.
