HellVetica Camp at Burning Man 2024

Are you craving a unique, community-centric adventure at Burning Man? Join Camp HellVetica, a collective of 20-30 individuals passionate about contributing to this temporary city in the desert. Camp HellVetica features a mesmerizing flame effect and welcoming bar as its central interactivities. We love the smell of propane in the evening - and wash it down with a delicious drink.

HellVetica is a rigorous, well-organised undertaking operating out of two shipping containers that are transported to and from Playa. Citizens are expected to participate in build and strike, and attend camp events (3 hours into the sunset on Monday/Wednesday/Friday, as the flame effect runs). They contribute to the costs of the operation via camp fee (the 2024 fee is USD 650), and enjoy shade, meals, water, drinks, and snacks.

Are you aligned with the ten principles and want to enjoy this unforgettable week as part of a small circle of enthusiastic Burners? Apply!
