THEME & STYLE
As always, Black & Light Ball is a glow-tech and black light intensive
faux-formal spring Burning Man project fundraiser where all fabulousness is
welcome. To play along with this year’s theme, BLB 2018 spoofs and
celebrates the blockchain dreamers, innovators, and even the hucksters,
working on this brighter future while taking creative license with all best
case scenarios no matter how unlikely. Think creative black tie of the
future where Levitation Boots, X-Ray goggles, Video Fashions
and all far-out ideas are encouraged!

not-to-be-missed ICO (IKO?) of the season. At Black & Light Ball you will

ABOUT MYSTIKAL MISFITS
The Mystikal Misfits have been creating a magical place of misfittery, booty-shaking, and

whiskey-slaps, and we’re thrilled to be joining the Kult for the Black & Light Ball.
FreaKKshow: July @ TBD

Mermaid Parade (June 16th) and Figment (June 23-24th)
True to Burning Man’s 10 Principles:
Kostume Kult is inclusive, welcoming the stranger and all newbies
who dare to participate….
*** SPECIAL NOTE ***: This year’s BLB theme mashes together the Burning Man
2018 “I.Robot” theme with the explosion of blockchain hype at a time when
there is a real debate about the intrusive nature of unaccountable
artificial intelligence into our lives. With this, a note of seriousness…
