Remember we own Xanadu so if you would like to come weeks early to pick your camp site, clear the land and build semi-permanent structures for your camp you are welcome to. First you must clear it with the landowner and once approved and the work is done that spot is yours as long as you do your due diligence. You must come to every burn event, have great LNT, be interactive, be an enhancement to Xanadu, and have no incidents where the rangers/EC have had to eject someone. So come early, come often and build to your dreams!!! Xanadu is private property we can refuse access to anyone we choose.

- You must notify gate lead and your team lead that you will be requesting early entrance.
- No one is on site without waivers and bands!
NO PETS will be allowed. Properly documented service animal service animals are welcome. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Service animals have always been welcomed at Xanadu. If you will be bringing a service animal, your companion must wear its gifted glow collar at all times along with an event band on the collar. Service animals MUST BE ON A LEASH AT ALL TIMES. You will only be given one warning, then you will be asked to leave. Please consider that this is North Florida in the swamp. We have large birds of prey, snakes, ticks (lots of ticks) and alligators. Make sure to keep your service animal safe from these indigenous creatures. Service animals must…be licensed, be up to date on all shots, and be well behaved. If they become a nuance owner and animal will be asked to leave. Xanadu is private property we can refuse access to anyone we choose.
To all participants, we ask that you treat these service animals and their companions with the courtesy and respect they deserve. If you see that they are wearing a collar with a band, then trust that they have been permitted to the property and they should be welcomed as members of our community. Please NEVER TOUCH a service animal without first getting permission from its companion.
CONSENT ALWAYS IS REQUIRED in all things in our community! IT IS NOT A PRINCIPLE, IT’S THE LAW! Please be aware of this at all times. These animals are working whether or not you see it that way and your energy can affect them and how well they can do their service. The companion has no way of knowing if something you have in your system may be transmitted to their animals through direct contact. Please be respectful if you are not given permission, this could be for many reasons that have nothing to do with you and everything to do with the companion or animal. We are an all-inclusive community, please extend that to our service animal Phambly.
In order to get invitations to this event, you must agree to abide by the 10 Principles of Burning Man.
- Radical Inclusion
Anyone may be a part of our community. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community.
Our community is devoted to acts of gift giving. The value of a gift is unconditional. Gifting does not contemplate a return or an exchange for something of equal value.
In order to preserve the spirit of gifting, our community seeks to create social environments that are unmediated by commercial sponsorships, transactions, or advertising. We stand ready to protect our culture from such exploitation. We resist the substitution of consumption for participatory experience.
- Radical Self-reliance
Our community encourages the individual to discover, exercise and rely on his or her inner resources.
- Radical Self-expression
Radical self-expression arises from the unique gifts of the individual. No one other than the individual or a collaborating group can determine its content. It is offered as a gift to others. In this spirit, the giver should respect the rights and liberties of the recipient.
- Communal Effort
Our community values creative cooperation and collaboration. We strive to produce, promote and protect social networks, public spaces, works of art, and methods of communication that support such interaction.
- Civic Responsibility
We value civil society. Community members who organize events should assume responsibility for public welfare and endeavor to communicate civic responsibilities to participants. They must also assume responsibility for conducting events in accordance with local, state and federal laws.
- Leaving No Trace
Our community respects the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We clean up after ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them.
Our community is committed to a radically participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change, whether in the individual or in society, can occur only through the medium of deeply personal participation. We achieve being through doing. Everyone is invited to work. Everyone is invited to play. We make the world real through actions that open the heart.
Immediate experience is, in many ways, the most important touchstone of value in our culture. We seek to overcome barriers that stand between us and a recognition of our inner selves, the reality of those around us, participation in society, and contact with a natural world exceeding human powers. No idea can substitute for this experience.
- Radical Inclusion
Also please note, that while this is an all-ages event, anyone under 18 MUST be accompanied by THEIR legal parent or guardian.
