Description

Have you always dreamed of throwing down a legendary DJ set at one of the hottest camps on the playa? Well, how bad do you Want It? We've got 10,000 watts of juicy sound, some of the best real estate in Black Rock City, and a nighttime crowd just waiting to be whipped into a frenzy. All you have to do is wow our panel of judges and you too could be headlining Burning Man! For this contest we hearken back to that seminal masterpiece of talent programs: The Gong Show. Perhaps you remember the cringe-worthy showcase of questionable performances that critics could halt by striking a loud gong. This event is eerily similar, only ours has balls. Ovaries too. Giant, dusty gonads. Can you hang? Instead of a gong, DJs will wear a shock collar and get buzzed off stage by volts of harsh rejection if they fail to impress. Instead of regaling us with tap dancing, DJs break out their most mind blowing tracks and slickest tricks. Instead of a paltry sum to commemorate victory, winners will be invited back during peak hours to pound the dance floor into submission. This is open decks for the fearless. Bring it.
