Burn2:The Great Unknown
These are the questions we get most often about events at Octoburn. If you have other questions, ask a Burn2 Ranger or other Burn2 staff, and they will either assist or direct you to someone who can help you. Keep in mind some of these are subject to change year to year.
The Three Official Burn2 Octoburn Stages
Main Stage (also called DJ Stage)
This is the stage where DJs, live singers and other performers who don't need their own stage build or setup - they come, sing or play their music, and go. Sometimes a main stage builder will include optional DJ console or microphone and stool setup that can be selected by controls near the stage. Even lighting controls may be available. Check the Main Stage signup form, or ask the Stage Manager for the Main Stage to learn more.
Center Camp Stage
This is a more laid-back, relaxed environment, at Center Camp. While Center Camp occupies a 64x64 meter area, the stage is smaller, with plenty of area for dancing and comfortable seating on rugs, cushions or chairs, almost a sort of coffeehouse environment in a large round tent open at all sides. This is an ideal place for poetry readings, discussions, live singers and bands who find this type of environment better suited to them than the Main Stage. Typically there is enough room to rez a piano (or one may be already be in place) or other instruments, microphones, etc. but it is not a large area.
BOB (formerly Live) Stage
BOB stands for Bring Own Build - This stage is for live performers or troupes who have their own stage builds to bring to the event. The area for the stage is large, 64x64 meters, with 1248LI maximum, and you should include space for people to sit, stand or dance within that area.
