Playascape is a playful interactive landscape coming to Burning Man 2019. Playascape is many things; a gathering space, an amphitheatre for performance, an undulating landscape that rises from the playa and more.
It offers a sculptural man-made terrain from which to smoothly climb out of the dead-flat playa and survey the miraculous scene from on high.
Artist and Architect Alex Haw and collaborator Col Sturge will talk about the design, inspiration and execution of their installation. In addition we’ll present sets from Sturge and The Scumfrog recorded live at their recent London fundraiser.
We have just concluded a great week of broadcasting live from Nowhere in Spain. We were on the air for 6 hours a day and were on FM at the event as well as streaming worldwide.

The Burning Man Project purchased the Fly Ranch property in 2016. Located twenty-one miles north of Gerlach in Washoe County, Nevada, Fly Ranch is a year-round venue for Burning Man activities. This 3,800 acre site opens the door to new possibilities, exciting cultural experiments, and art and innovation projects on a scale never before envisioned
Shouting Fire DJ Raindog visited the ranch last weekend as part of the Profiles in Dust team; a small group of talented video producers gifting their time & professional talents to the Burning Man community. Raindog will be presenting a montage of audio recorded there. This will include part of a talk by Burning Man Project founding member, Will Roger, who talks of the history of Burning Man’s involvement with Fly Ranch, and the present and future plans for the property.
While Fly Ranch Project is not exactly British, it definitely is the dogs bollocks.
