Join Disorient for year 12 of our annual journey of deep chilling, off-the-grid futurist relaxation. Country Club is a lake and lush green woodland oasis where blissful self-reliance meets massive multiplayer techno and technology participation. We invite you to roam the wild forest adventuring in constantly shifting blank canvas of music, art, and performance. Country Club is a fundraiser organized by an all volunteer team. All profits are used for Disorient art creations at Burning Man.

2024 THEME

Disorient Country Club 2024 Theme: Possibilities of Pattern

An invitation to explore recognition of the self similar repeating patterns that create the conditioned phenomena available to experience in this world. A flexibility and rigor to recognize and interact with the apparent superstructures, finding skillful ways through, with, past and beyond.

For this theme we are exploring coherence/decoherence, omniinterregulated structuring, hot swapping capable DNA sequencers, Japanese metabolism architects, Drop City, torus knot topopolis warehouse massives, chronostasis cowboys, Vector Equilibrium jitterbugging, subtle harmonic benders, newly apparent aperiodic monotile tessellations, holobiant upgrades through groove transpositionists.


Disorient Country Club is an ephemeral dream that exists for one weekend only. Discover an ever growing and morphing participant-generated weekend of art, theme camps, art cars, art boats, and electronic and live music. Bring what you love! Join us with your creative output and share it in the beautiful tapestry woven wildly in our green forest hideaway.

“This Must Be the Place"
A mystical sanctuary, offering cosmic creations for gifting or receiving. Within its walls, we rediscover our interconnectedness, bridging the collective heartbreak born from the illusion of separation caused by the Big Bang. This place reminds us that I am YOU are me - parts of the whole; holes in the parts. Feel free to take or leave a treasure, a tangible reminder of our interwoven existence."

“Sisyphus 2.0”
Sisyphus was an ancient Greek king who angered the gods by cheating death. His punishment was to push a giant boulder up a mountain in Hades, only to watch it roll back down every time it neared the summit. ​ ​Sisyphus 2.0 concentrates that struggle into a playful yet challenging interactive game. The six-foot steel sphere twinkles in the darkness. Two tones follow two rhythms. By turning the sphere, participants control the sounds and bring the tones into synch. ​ Roll the ball. Unlock the puzzle. Dance to the music. Repeat. Startling in its simplicity, the work speaks directly to our very human experience of trial and error and measured success, achieved by deep listening and coordinating efforts among a group of players.

Ezræl The All-Knowing & Wallstradamus

Wallstradamus & Ezræ The All-Knowing, are psychic twins connected through ancient multidimensional spirit guides. As the night deepens, they harness temporal energy using the mystical power of tarot to assist those daring enough to unveil their authentic selves. Embark on an experiential journey with them as they reveal hidden prophecies from the universe's higher consciousness.
