This is the (unofficial) Electronic Reference to the annual Burning Man festival. Rated "Must Have" by the Black Rock Gazette, and "Amazing" by the 20,000 burners who use it every year.

*Review the latest messages from the official Burning Man twitter account.

*A built-in checklist will help you make sure you haven't forgotten anything important

*Browse the comprehensive snapshot of the official Playa Calendar, with thousands of things to do while you are there. Favorite the events and camps that tickle your fancy.

*Once it is released, you will have access to Rockstar Librarian's festival music guide to DJ's and performances on the Playa.

*The Black Rock City map is now GPS aware, and can be used to locate yourself in the city, and get guidance to various locations.

If you have suggestions about how to make the app better, I would love to hear them.  The majority of the enhancements and upgrades in this version were suggested by the burningman community.

I hope you find the app useful, it's my gift to BRC.

While the Burning Man organization provides me access to the festival data, and has supported this app since 2010, the app is a private effort and is not produced by the Burning Man festival.

What’s New

Version 2018.3

*The Artwork list is now more of a gallery, allowing people to preview all the incredible installations that will be on the playa this year.
*The BRC Map now includes a "Radar" function, showing you nearby art & camps as you wander the festival.
*Radical Inclusion also means people with any mobility restrictions, and we are happy to say that we are now indicating which camps and events are trying to be more inclusive. Many thanks to Rat Lady at Mobility Camp for helping us with this, and to Rockstar Librarian for collecting the information.
*The Map interface has been streamlined and enhanced. You can search for camps and art directly from the map.
*You people really like to "Like"! You blew our little system out of the water with all your activity, so we've re-written the system to be more responsive and robust while.

Honestly the burner map and GPS are so needed sometimes. It’s nice to get lost at Burning Man sometimes but other times it’s essential to just get back to home base. This app is great! I will use it every year!



I was just saying to someone I wish an app like this existed. Searched iTunes, and WOW!!! Does exactly what I was hoping! So nice to be able to easily put together an itinerary of events and classes I'd like to attend, and know where my favorite camps are located and the ones I want to check out!….all with a simple tap of the red heart. A MILLION thanks for this app! You've just made my BM experience SO much easier to navigate….and I'm a veteran Burner!

There is currently one issue that I submitted to the developer today, where I've noticed events beginning at 10:00 AM show as starting at MIDNIGHT. Hopefully that will get resolved before BM begins.

Uninstall Previous Version First and Awesome

If you do not uninstall the previous year's versions first before installing 2015 version then the 2015 version will crash like a drunk, dehydrated sparkle pony. Make notes of your old information since uninstalling the 2014 version will delete the data too. Other than that one little irksome thing it is awesome. This app is the only reason I carry my iPhone in the playa and I'd have been lost a million times without it. So many great features and so much information. Thank you, thank you !!!
