How can I experience The Infinite Playa?
The Infinite Playa is available on any desktop or laptop computer, best experienced using the latest version of Chrome or Safari Browser
and a minimum of 6 mbps internet download speed.
We do not currently support mobile/touch devices or VR.
What is the deadline to submit files?
If you are interested in submitting a camp, art, or art car the deadline is August 1st.
Please submit your files using our submission portal here: BECOME INFINITE
Performances and talks can be uploaded to a camp or one of our open stages at anytime up to and during Burn week.
what file formats do you accept?
3D MODELS - Our preferred file format is FBX. Many files that open and import FBX files also export to that format. You can use
the FBX SDK to convert OBJ, 3DS, DXF, and DAE files to FBX.
In the spirit of Radical Self-Reliance we ask that all 3D modeling artists do their best to optimize their files before submitting.
Here are our FILE FORMATTING BEST PRACTICES.
FINE ART - We can accept JPG, TIF, PNG, and GIF files of your fine art or photography. Please include instructions with your
submission about the scale, measured in feet and inches, that your art should be represented as well as any requests for placement.
PERFORMANCES & TALKS - Performances and talks are generally managed by Camps, we will provide a full list of camps that accept submissions as they come in. You may also submit your content for one of our open stages using our submission portal.
We can't guarantee that we will be able to stream your content.
I submitted but don't see my art on The Infinite Playa?
Due to the sheer number of submissions we are not able to include all of the art that is submitted to us. We hope to be able to add
additional submitted art to the Playa during the event.
What if i need help?
Due to the size constraints of our team, we are asking participants to practice the Burning Man principle of radical self reliance.
We do not have a dedicated IT team, so please read the FAQs, do your best to follow our instructions and if all else fails submit a
help request and we will do our best to get back to you in a timely manner.

What Is the Intention Behind The Infinite Playa?
The Infinite Playa is a huge endeavor that has taken a development team of over 60 people, across the world, countless hours
(not to mention a lot of lost sleep) to create, in under 4 months.
We simply couldn't bear the thought of a world without Burning Man, especially in these challenging times.
Our intention is to give Burners, new and old, an opportunity to experience some of the magic they would feel in the physical
Playa, in our virtual one.
