The Position Pirates, The Arrangement Arseholes, The Location Legends, AKA Placement team is making sure everyone gets where they need to go, finds a place to camp, and that it all fits onto the footprint of the land. We map, direct, and guide theme camps and participants to the most functional, and safe landing space on the event grounds for their needs.

What we do

Our team is involved in everything revolving around theme camps and placement. We process allllll of the details for theme camps and art placement, help to create the layout and the map of the city by collecting theme camps applications; as well as placing ARTery art and non art grant pieces. We can also be found driving around with a golf cart and checking for: vehicles with proper land passes, or any vehicle blocking public roads and check up on bar storage. During the event we will also take on having to squish folks in if needed and adjust camp spacing as needed on the fly. 

Team Dynamics

The Placement team typically has 2-4 co-leads that share the responsibilities, and a small team of hardcore volunteers for early entry for staking out the city. This requires dedicated individuals that are willing to work (rain or shine) on the early entry days mapping out the physical city. Placement works closely with FAST, DPW, Signage, ARTery, WWW Guide and even the Sound Marshal teams.

Minimum 16; Maximum 32

Shift Length

Early entry pre-event shifts: Typically 10-12 hours. During the event shifts: Typically 3-4 hours per shift.
