2018 pARTicipate

Everyone is a Participant

This is not a regular “festival,” it is not a passive experience where everything is planned, orchestrated, and prepackaged by the event producers, and attendees just come and enjoy the show. It is the exact opposite… the people who attend are active participants in every sense of the word. They create the city, the interaction, the art, the performance, and ultimately the “experience.”

Last Minute Tips 2018

Some last-minute SNRG tips:

  • Please be awake and aware when driving to Beatty. Half of the trip is on a two-lane highway; stay alert and aware.
  • Do not speed in Beatty! The speed limit in Beatty is 25 mph, and heavily enforced.
  • Do not use waze to navigate to Spicer Ranch. It will take you on a longer route.
  • The Spicer Ranch is 7 miles north of Beatty.
  • Beatty doesn’t have any full-size grocery stores.
  • Some of the businesses we recommend are Mel’s diner a great place for breakfast or lunch
    Address: 600 US-95, Beatty, NV 89003
    Phone: (775) 553-9003
    Hours: Open ⋅ Closes 3PM.
  • If you need a cold beer and a bowl of award winning chili we recommend the Happy Burro
    Address: 100 W Main St, Beatty, NV 89003
    Phone: (775) 553-9099
    Hours: Open ⋅ Closes 10PM
  • Gemmas is another fine place for a solid meal breakfast through dinner
  • For last minute groceries, propane, or a full RV hook up, we recommend The Space Station. These are the people that provide ice for the event.

Please be courteous everywhere in Beatty. The Beatty community supports our event, so let’s show them some love and support the local businesses.


Got a fun event happening? Want to inform people of the latest “you do not want to miss this!” moment of SNRG 2018? Just need an excuse to have people come visit your lazy butt in camp?

LED Talks are coming to SN-RG … and we want to hear your story!

LED Talks are like TED talks … only brighter! They are not an open mic. They are pre-planned 8-minute Talks related to the 10 Principles or burner culture.* We’ll be hosting 12:30 to 2 p.m. Saturday at Camp In Search Of.



Center Camp

Are you looking for center camp? Are you looking for a shade spot or a place to perform or gather?

SNRG does not have a designated center camp. instead we have a rad theme camp called IN SEARCH OF. IN SEARCH OF offers a community gathering and performance space 24×7. If you’re looking for fun, friends and family look no further IN SEARCH OF is your community! Music, People, Talks and Art. When these four combine, new worlds, relationships, and experiences grow.

We will be building a community stage and gathering area. which includes the

Titan Stage, pa,complete dj set up, lights, projections, shaded dance floor, enclosed lounge, Xanadu a enclosed 3 story lounge with balcony. All of this is available for your talks, dj’s ,takeovers, hiding from the heat and more. Before you say that 450ft walk was to far we have a shuttle running daily from the gate to IN SEARCH OF. For sign ups please follow this link: 
For direct questions email mizenter@aol.com   Thanks.

Since the sun and high temperatures over ran the headlines of last year’s event, We’ve decided to theme this year’s event: STARS.We’ve included a few quotes to inspire you.

“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.
It matters that you don’t just give up.”

― Stephen Hawking

“Shoot for the moon, because even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.” Les Brown

A star is type of astronomical object consisting of a luminous spheroid of plasma held together by its own gravity. The nearest star to Earth is the Sun. Many other stars are visible to the naked eye from Earth during the night, appearing as a multitude of fixed luminous points in the sky due to their immense distance from Earth. Historically, the most prominent stars were grouped into constellations and asterisms, the brightest of which gained proper names. Astronomers have assembled star catalogues that identify the known stars and provide standardized stellar designations. However, most of the stars in the Universe, including all stars outside our galaxy, the Milky Way, are invisible to the naked eye from Earth. Indeed, most are invisible from Earth even through the most powerful telescopes.

For at least a portion of its life, a star shines due to thermonuclear fusion of hydrogen into helium in its core, releasing energy that traverses the star’s interior and then radiates into outer space. Almost all naturally occurring elements heavier than helium are created by stellar nucleosynthesis during the star’s lifetime, and for some stars by supernova nucleosynthesis when it explodes. Near the end of its life, a star can also contain degenerate matter. Astronomers can determine the mass, age, metallicity (chemical composition), and many other properties of a star by observing its motion through space, its luminosity, and spectrum respectively. The total mass of a star is the main factor that determines its evolution and eventual fate. Other characteristics of a star, including diameter and temperature, change over its life, while the star’s environment affects its rotation and movement. A plot of the temperature of many stars against their luminosities produces a plot known as a Hertzsprung–Russell diagram (H–R diagram). Plotting a particular star on that diagram allows the age and evolutionary state of that star to be determined.

A star’s life begins with the gravitational collapse of a gaseous nebula of material composed primarily of hydrogen, along with helium and trace amounts of heavier elements. When the stellar core is sufficiently dense, hydrogen becomes steadily converted into helium through nuclear fusion, releasing energy in the process.[1] The remainder of the star’s interior carries energy away from the core through a combination of radiative and convective heat transfer processes. The star’s internal pressure prevents it from collapsing further under its own gravity. A star with mass greater than 0.4 times the Sun’s will expand to become a red giant when the hydrogen fuel in its core is exhausted.[2] In some cases, it will fuse heavier elements at the core or in shells around the core. As the star expands it throws a part of its mass, enriched with those heavier elements, into the interstellar environment, to be recycled later as new stars.[3] Meanwhile, the core becomes a stellar remnant: a white dwarf, a neutron star, or if it is sufficiently massive a black hole.

Binary and multi-star systems consist of two or more stars that are gravitationally bound and generally move around each other in stable orbits. When two such stars have a relatively close orbit, their gravitational interaction can have a significant impact on their evolution.[4] Stars can form part of a much larger gravitationally bound structure, such as a star cluster or a galaxy.
