Last week’s question was: What was your favorite moment at Burning Man?


Josh VanderVeen “The Architech” (Philadelphia – Bangarang!) shared his experience, “Last year was my first Burning Man, but I’ve been in the East Coast scene for a couple years now and DJing for almost 8 years. I brought my music out to the playa with no gigs lined up figuring it’d be cool to play somewhere, but I wasn’t going to hold my breath. When I got there, I noticed in the What When Where that there was a DJ competition at camp Want It, on the Esplanade. I went, competed against about a dozen other DJs, and won. The prize was a slot on their Esplanade stage, midnight on burn night. I had come to Burning Man with the Aish Tamid fire conclave from Philadelphia as a staffer and breather. So that burn, I got to perform in front of all of Burning Man, watch the Man burn front row, and then kill an esplanade stage, all at my first Burning Man. I can’t imagine anything topping that night.”


Thanks Josh! That sounds like an amazing time! We’ll be sure to catch your future DJ sets at Burning Man 2012.
