2015 Music Lineups

Did you download the free Rockstar Librarian Music Guide? This year, it seems a little light – listings from major camps like White Ocean and Robot Heart are not there at all.

If you were conspiracy-minded, then you might see this as related to the War on EDM, the declaration of a DMZ and new rules for loud art cars, and BMOrg’s request that no camps reveal their DJs until after the OMG sale. Perhaps digging even deeper into the underlying motives, if no live entertainment is ever promoted before ticket sales, BMOrg can try to argue they’re not providing Live Entertainment which would make them subject to a 9% tax like other large events in Nevada.

Those more inclined to view the world through rose tinted glasses will have to just shrug this off as maybe this year all the camps here had time to make flyers, but most were just too busy to email their flyers to RSL at the same time they were posting them on Facebook. YMMV – we report, you decide!

This particular conspiracy theory was first articulated at burningman.com in July 2014

Anyway, if you want to know if your favorite DJs are going to be there, and make plans to meet your friends at events, here are all the flyers I can find for this year. If you have another one that’s not listed here, please share and I’ll add it. You may want to print this page to a PDF and take it with you to the Playa.

A big thanks to K-Dust’s Definitive Music Guide and The Music of Burning Man on Facebook, where many of these were posted.

  1. BMOrg paying the tax (or for that matter most of the taxes they dodge), would only translate to the next logical no-think step of passing the cost onto camps in the form of sound permits, which of course would overly empower law enforcement and rangers, and lead to more war-on-fun policies.

    At the point where cops, lawyers, politicians, spineless leaders and such elements of greed and ego all culminate, you will find the future Black Rock City, functionally indistinguishable from its red tape ridden real world counterparts, save for the dust.

    • History should have shown that BMOrg’s attempts to avoid paying less to the Federales usually end up in more pain for Burners. Cops going nuts with dogs looking for citations, or ticket price rises necessary “due to increased costs”. Usually, as something gets bigger economies of scale kick in to decrease costs. Not when you have a volunteer workforce of 10,000 people, apparently.

      • Now you understand why the BOrg don’t solicit volunteers for most all positions like Transformus and all that non-existent overhead. …Er, well… Afraid that might inevitably lead to another conspiracy theory. Don’t want to upset JV and Badger.

    • After all, we already have vehicle permits. Now you suggest Sound Permits! I LOVE it. So if they pay, they have the right to prevent those around them from doing anything that requires aural communications. What’s next?…. Hearing Permits!! You pay extra to be placed where there are no Sound Permits.

      …Can light, flame and laser permits be far behind? Permits are the future of the NV burn!! You heard it here, first.

  2. I always only include camps that request to be in the guide and submit lineups to me. Many camps have always preferred to not be in the guide. It’s just how it is. They are always welcome to be included.

      • Probably because of the BMORG’s recent statement about it. No conspiracy there. I happen to agree with not announcing lineups. And sure, it could very well be related to the entertainment tax. Again, no conspiracy. I don’t want BM to have to pay the tax. Do you?

        And I should add, I fully support the efforts of Rock Star Librarian, it’s an awesome case of DIY spirit.

        • I see you have your own special definition of conspiracy; that is, you don’t agree. So if its not a “conspiracy” when you make a plan formulated in secret by two or more persons – in this case to avoid a tax by privately suppressing published DJ lists – what do you call it?

          • When has “strategic” become secret? If it truly was strategic, we would have heard it from the Minister of Propaganda. You know, something like…

            “While we appreciate the anticipation of the playa activities, we don’t want to misconstrue this to be entertainment by promoting lists of specific events and times. Please refrain from releasing such information before arrival at BRC.”

            Of course if he or other BOrgites are “involved” with Rock Star Librarian, that would be a problem – and another conspiracy to the detriment of the burners.
