2017 (to 2018) Yurt Storage

Reservations for storing your hexayurt from the end of 2017 Burning Man to the start of the 2018 event are now open.

Reserving space

To request a reservation for your hexayurt, please complete this Google Form. Payment is not required to request a space. Note: This is NOT your formal contract; it is a reservation request. We’ll confirm that we have available space once we receive your request.


Once your reservation request has been received, assuming space is available you will be sent a confirmation email, along with a request for payment. Your space is not guaranteed until your payment is received.

Reservations will be closed, and payments no longer accepted, on Monday, 22 August, 2017.


Pricing for 2017-2018 continues to climb annually (sadly) driven by increases in our costs. The primary drivers are the fees to the Burning Man organization for Outside Services permits, and cost of general liability insurance for Burning Man vendors. These two alone went up nearly $1,000 in total this year.

However, by cutting other costs every possible place, and running this at zero profit, costs are only increasing $12.50 per-yurt this year (across the board). Yes, it’s not an even number; but this is an effort to keep your price absolutely rock-bottom.

Stored-yurt pickup

The plan is for the trailer to arrive with last-year’s yurts on Wednesday pre-gate, with the trailer first available on Thursday pre-gate. (Date still dependent on the schedule of the trucker we use.) All people with stored yurts will be furnished with the combination lock to the trailer on Monday that week. You will be able to retrieve your yurt at any time, and they are packed so that you do not have to unload any other yurts in order to retrieve yours.

The trailer will be placed in the Hive Village, at 8:30 and A. We won’t know until around the day the trailer arrives whether the Village is on the 8:29 or 8:31 side. We’ll try to let people know by email, but you should plan on checking both sides.

Once again, two bike trailers will be available to use to pull your yurt to your camp (so you do not have to drive on-Playa).

Drop-off for storage

Those storing yurts this year will (also) be provided with the combination to the lock on the trailer. Drop-off can be at any time after Thursday, 1 September (mid-burn).

ALL YURTS TO BE STORED MUST BE DROPPED OFF BEFORE MONDAY, 3pm, AFTER THE MAN BURNS. (This is 2 hours earlier than last year.) The trailer will be locked (and combination changed) at that time, and no more yurts will be accepted for storage.

There will be a printed diagram taped to the inside of the truck indicating where you should place your yurt. Final strap-down will be done by BRYST personnel.

Refund / re-use policy

When you pay for, and confirm a reservation for your yurt storage, your space is allocated. It will not be re-sold, either before or during the burn. So whether you actually store your yurt or not, your space is allocated, and you will incur the cost.

(If you don’t fill your spot, your payment for an unused space cannot be re-allocated to a following year, though you, as a prior customer, will be treated as a repeat customer the following year if you wish to store & pay again).
