The Great Unknown
The Great Unknown Performance
The BOB (Bring Own Build) Stage is an open area in the Borderland region, ideal for performers who bring their own stages or sets for their performances. Performing troupes, dance groups, live singers and DJs who have their own stages will find this a great stage for their performances. When not in use, there is a 3D sculpture on the stage that can be removed for you to use with your own stage.
For set build sizing: The allowed area is 64m wide x 64m deep (4096sqm). Max height 28 meters. Max Land Impact 1250 (please!). Don't forget to leave room for your audience to sit and/or dance!
Please carefully review the guidelines for the BOB Stage before booking your performances.
At Burn2's October events, it is customary to have three stages on separate regions. Use this page to book your performance slot on the BOB Stage.
- IMPORTANT: You may reserve a maximum of 3 bookings over the entire event. Please space bookings at least 2 days apart. Each booking must be no more than 2 hours long. Reserve one booking at a time, of 1 or 2 hours duration. To reserve more bookings (max of 3), come back to this page after submitting. Yes, we understand the inconvenience of repetition. It will aid the Performance team in scheduling.

- IMPORTANT NOTE: Performers may not use media objects without prior authorisation from the performance lead and B2TV staff. The land media information must be left unchanged. It is reserved for use by B2TV staff.
- Check in at least 30 minutes before your scheduled time in the Burn2 Access group. If we don't hear from you by 20 minutes before your show time, we will seek a replacement and you may lose your slot.
On the form, you will have the option to enter your own stream URL or we can provide one of ours free of charge. We strongly urge a minimum 100 listener stream. Please have it tested and ready at check-in.
- When you check in, you will be contacted by a stage host. When it comes time for your show, either you or the stage host can perform the handoff with the stream.
- Backup Performers: Occasionally, a performer may be unable to play at their assigned show time. Things happen - loss of Internet, computer glitches, illness. Watch the Burn2 Access group for calls for cover/backup performers when needed. Please communicate with the Performance Lead as soon as possible if you learn you are not able to perform at your assigned time.
- Decommodification: We sincerely appreciate the gift of your talent and time that you share with the Burn2 community! As with all Burn2 events, performers and artists alike are asked to agree to the following rules for Decommodification as required by the Burning Man organization: No tip jars, no group joiners, no in-chat promotion spam, no club advertising. We do encourage you to enhance your SL profile.
