The Osiris Burners is a Burning Man community group destined to build one of the greatest Esplanade theme camps the burn has ever known....
As you step out across the dusty expanse of the playa, a warm wind caresses your face, your eyes scan the horizon. You are here to witness the rise of the great pyramid, a feat yet unknown to Black Rock City. Man-made or mythical, this structure is your portal; your doorway between the land of the living and what lies beyond. This is OSIRIS. This is your passage between worlds – a place where music, passion, and art are created. Though you may exit OSIRIS, you are changed forever. You have glimpsed the Underworld, with OSIRIS as your guide.
The Osiris Burners are a cooperative effort between multiple disciplines – builders, visionaries, engineers, welders, artists, musicians, and raw muscle – whose collaborative efforts have manifested as OSIRIS. Our mission is to bring a gift worthy of the pharaohs to the Citizens of Black Rock City, a scale replica of a pyramid to adorn the playa skyline. The pyramid, designed by a structural engineering team, will be constructed from 8” steel pipe, and will stand 57 feet high at the center, 90 x 90 feet at the base, and feature a wind and UV resistant cover. The goal is to fill the vacancy left by the 10:00 anchor. We have created this impressive structure to visually and creatively stimulate the playa, and like the Phoenix rose from the ashes, OSIRIS serves to bring something new, fresh and exciting to the Esplanade. The pyramid will house a 145,000 watt sound system and will be host to a DJ lineup featuring DJs DJs Travis T, DJ Mira,...and may more! We will be hosting camp events for the Burn Week – nightly DJs playing the hottest, drrrtyest music, a day party with an Angels and Devils theme, Camel(toe) Races, Play HORSE with Jesus. etc
