Bat Country blazes a trail of mischief through Black Rock City
Gather for a summit with the infamous Bat Country, a camp that emerged from the dust and has grown into a global community. Arash is joined by Handful, Begley, and Kip as they embark on a journey back to their crew’s beginnings, from the Mad Max-esque early days of Burning Man to the current LED-infused Black Rock City. We’re treated to an array of stories, including their participation in New Mexico’s SunBurn and the founding of West Virginia’s Frostburn.
The conversation begins with Bat Country’s gathering at the La Jolla Playhouse for The Untitled, Unauthorized Hunter S. Thompson Musical and eventually delves into the infamous "Flat Gate" incident from Burning Man 2019 before wrapping with some enchanting playa magic stories. Join us for an insider's perspective on the dynamic world of Bat Country and the captivating tales of their journey through the Burner community.
