Carl Cox prepares to host his first ever camp at Burning Man
With Burning Man just two weeks away, we’ve learned some very exciting news. Carl Cox and crew will be headed to the Playa this year to build their very own camp. According to UK ticketing outlet Skiddle, who spoke to key members of Cox’s team in late July, Carl’s camp will be titled The PlayGround Experience and will occupy a space “that is probably bigger than Glastonbury.” As is the fashion of various other techno mega-camps, Robot Heart being the most obvious, it will be more about the experience and less about the names on the bill. In fact, Carl Cox’s name will likely not be associated with the camp at all according to Yoms, the camp coordinator for The PlayGround Experience.
So how did this all start? As it goes, Carl attended Burning Man for the first time in 2008 after a recommendation from fellow dance music veteran Paul Oakenfold. After performing at the Opulent Temple to an emphatic response, Carl left the Playa enamored with the experience. While he’s since returned to Black Rock City, this is the first year Cox will be a direct sponsor of a massive camp. The British legend will perform alongside Monika Kruse, Lee Foss and Seb Fontaine, as well as other surprise guests.
Only one question remains: after a recent 10-hour set from Space Ibiza, just how long will Carl play for on the Playa?
