The AliGate Camp is a place of cool, free spirited, and dynamic people: the perfect place for all Midburn Gate Volunteers!
Your sexy Gators and Gateritas Camp is an Oasis of epic morning Music sets by our beloved home town DJs, we serve cocktails that might alter your brain to an alligator-size! Come thirsty, come green, come hot and come dry! Come for our Green bar drinks, come to shake your tail, come for shade and come to get wet.
And every Green Oasis needs a little fire…Psychedelic cartoon cinema and firepit by night!
We assume that our camp size will be about 50, and we know that our beloved Gate Department Volunteers will have a cozy place to call home for the week!
We will build a catwalk that will change in character each day. One day we will build a refreshing catwalk where everyone who comes to visit can walk down and be refreshed by strong fans, shpritzers of mist, a drop of perfume and a nice breath mint. Another day we will build a costume catwalk for a costume show where anyone who comes can upgrade their costume with accessories and facepaint that we will provide, and then will be able to walk the runway to show off their amazing new look in front of an audience. Another day we will offer an ego-booster runway where anyone who comes to walk will get flooded with compliments and good vibes from the audience. And we’ll do the opposite as well with a heckle–walk, where all walkers will be heckled by the crowd, being told that they don’t have what it takes, and definitely have no future in modeling.
I experienced camp right where you are coming from, meets God, and then choose to go to heaven or hell, heaven is an experience of freedom and peace, meditation retreats and treats, hell is S & M encounter with the horror experience and unforgettable.
B&B – Bar “Barad”
At noon when the hot sun of the desert strike on the burners heads we will help cool them down with some cold ice drinks
In Baobab we are combining a camp of community and living with art-work. Our service to the community will be a 12 meters tall baobab-tree, which will rain sprays of clean / water for refreshment in the heat. You will dance your heart out, wet, muddy, and re-born.
Under the tree, there will be an ongoing mud project of body painting and mud sculpture.
We need people who are interested in building, drilling, jig sawing, painting, transporting, lighting, dancing playing in mud,… and of course people who can be a functional part of the camp in planning and putting it up, taking turns in cooking, cleaning, merry making etc.
Following the burner vision, everyone is welcome, you don’t need to be part of any group, come as an individual, and find yourself busy with others within minutes.
Hi, we are planning to raise the subject camp with quality music (mostly electronic) and avant-garde. Combined with Live art for example- graffiti artists, sculpture and more …. we will have a bar in the camp and a family vibes. little hard to describe how much fun we’re going to do in our camp, we are a big collective and varied group who want to give from ourselves the best for Burn and for all.
It’s going to be awesome for all of us.
The idea behind our camp is distributing the culture of fun & entertainment, based on electronic music and alcohol, Dj sessions & music workshops, teaching the environment the behavior and language- all along with hard work and pleasure combined.
Know how to mix, react & deal with life.

At night, the Dome becomes an open and free playground for couples and moresomes.
Camp members are partners and creators of the the atmosphere in the camp. We hold a safe and open space for the city guests to stop by and learn, experience and relish

Rock and Roll is not dead and the Dome of Rock still stands. Come to the musical Temple for all that is not sacred

The Priests’ Quarters – living quarters and hospice for the comfort and pleasure of the faithful heretics
The shrine of the bubble
The shrine of the bubble is a sacred terrain where pagan ceremonies take place and a holy truth is being unfold
in the center of the camp erects a mesmerizing sand pendulum which will be built
by insane unrestricted psychedelic minds
the pendulum is sacred, its beautiful, its interactive
the people of the cult look the same (make up & costumes) and they speak the autonomic truths of the moment
the people of the camp are happy to help other humans understand the massiveness of the gospel according to the bubble
all of this is accompanied by Techno
and other nameless tunes
The Camp will demonstrate the radical self-reliance with the desire for community life through sustainable behavior and various ecological infrastructures.

Here lies the Alice in Wonderland Family Camp – a camp of families and children only, where by mutual reliance, parents will be free to roam the playa.

Humans of Midburn
Following in the ‘Humans of New Yorks’ idea – our camp would seek to photograph (with Polaroid) every single Midburner and with that photograph of we would ask them two to three set questions about themselves/what this Midburn experience means to them.
These photographs will be the basis of creating a Midburn portfolio that documents each person with a photograph, their purpose in life, something that makes them unique, their purpose for being at Midburn, what camp they are a part of with the further intention of creating a structured ‘map’ style 3D portfolio creating a clear sense of how each individual contributes to this community, where they are located within the community as well as learning about each individual.
A personal portofolio of each individual, and the portfolio will include: a photograph, a bit about the individual, what camp they are a part of, what brought them here.
We would hope that by the end of Midburn we will have an organized Midburn portfolio consisting of everything you would want to know about the different assortment of people and characters that attended Midburn and what they gave to the event
Ice, Cream, & Fire

The project is one sheet of paper, printed on both sides, released everyday at noon and delivered hand to hand by our stunning dressed up paperboys/girls crew.
Once read, the Gazette will turn itself, origami style, into a daily sculptural experience.
At least, that’s the plan.

Talking HandsJob is the camp of all those who know who to speak without using their voice – deaf, hearing impaired, and any Sign Language speaker (-8
We will expose Midburn to the beautiful world of nonverbal communication – a language that is to some of us the native one, but many people learn it merely because it’s soooo intuitive and fun, and enables talking from dawn till dusk in a complete peaceful silence –
a really fascinating experience to the newbies!
The camp will provide sign language related activities: Hebrew (or other) Sign language workshops (by levels – to both children and adults), and theme lectures (fully translated and followed by an open discussion).
EverYBodY is invited to come over, get closer, participate, and create an exciting gathering that will melt down the ice (in the Vodkas) and will expand the desert’s horizons.
We want to create a day-drinking, science-themed bar with daytime programming revolving around science, chemistry, experimentation, and radical participation. Drinks will be served during daylight out of test tubes, and some examples of activities are: liquid nitrogen ice cream social, chemistry magic show, do-it-yourself, social experiments, etc.
The Lemon Tree
The Lemon Tree is is a feel-good space, where the lemons are always fresh and the music is always good. We welcome the desert community to come and enjoy a squeeze of sweet lemonade and dance with us. We will host groovy Lemonade parties during the day and a bunch of activities (from yoga to jams), depending on the mood. We want to create a space where people feel free to be themselves. Who knew the lemon could be so sweet?
* As we are still in the process of forming our camp, we are still playing with additional art installations, performances etc. that we would include in our camp. Therefore, our ‘vision’ might change slightly before the festival.
Who we are:
We are a group of 15 – 20 friends from Israel and Europe. We will set-up and organize the public space of the camp, but we will also provide sleeping and cooking areas for our members. Although we will not be able to host additional people, we do open all our events and workshops to everybody at the festival – The Edge is, at the end of the day, a space for everybody.
The idea is to create a complex emotional release and convergence rate of the spirit with the body
We plan to create and support colorfull stage that will give visitors to our spiritual librety
Our way to do this is with music ! We believe that it has the power to connect people and free them inhibition of modern society
Logistically complex will be built in a large space , shaded by a special color -saving we bought this year (what will be the turtle’s armor )
Entrance to camp goes by the turtle’s mouth and all events will be conducted within
We have a unique sound system produces sharp , high-quality sound without reaching at high volume
In terms of musical content we welcome artists outside the mainstream expose us unfamiliar style and we will open the hearts and minds of wonder created the world but do not get enough in their proper ear .

The wise old men of the tribe
I am 65 years old, a former Yoga teacher and a student of Osho (Formally Baguan), graduate student of the Trilo-Therapy and several more spiritual trainings. With me are several friends with similar backgrounds and age. Last year we participated during the Midburn , where in a spontaneous way, many younger participants came to us and started talking “”about Life””. They wanted to talk to us about their parents without prejudice or personal involvement and were looking for answers to fundamental questions that concerns them. As a result very deep and fascinating conversations developed which made very strong impact on all of the participants over and over.
We plan to setup this year a small camp that will be called something like “” The wise old men of the tribe”” (Temporary name) which will be open for discussions on a cup of tea for individuals and groups.
In order to move ahead with the idea and we first need to get tickets, something we were not successful doing so far even though we started last Saturday evening spending hours trying to register unsuccessfully.
You’re welcome to sit with us around the fire on the cold nights of Midburn. We will host you like family: we’ll feed you, give you hot drinks, comfortably sit you down, and if you feel like it – we’ll create interesting conversations with whomever’s around our burning barrel. It will be hot. It will be cozy.
You bring it, We dip it, and then lick it!
Every night a hot chocolate fondue will just wait for your fruits to be dipped. There’ll be brushes for some sexy chocolate body painting.
Masala chai will also be served occasionally.
The camp is vegan-friendly.
Long long time ago in a place called Hatzrot Yassaf an Ethiopian neighborhood was established, this communitty through the best parties in darkness and daytime, including ridiculous ceremonies like contacting the dead, touching the virgins and loving the earth.
a few years later, on the same grounds next (up in the north) a new community of friends took the old wrecked grounds and lived there for 4 days. making life food parties and all of the above was what kept this small community for 6 years.
this year we want to unite with our natural values of BM and create our safe\hazard place on the playa
many ideas to come, but heres the first step.
