Disco Chateau is a creative collective dedicated to bringing people together to create beautiful art, powerful community collaborations and unlock all the wonder the world has to offer. When we come together, our first priority is connecting our members in a fun, creative and powerful way so that we maximize the potential of collaboration on projects that will help solve our global community's most pressing problems. 

Your contributions will go towards funding projects both on and off the playa, which include:

Le Cuddle Puddle: A 50 ft by 20 ft cuddle complex where fellow wondering wanderers can congregate, cuddle and find the joys of living among 10,000 hand-selected stuffed animals as well as other cuddly creatures. At night, our cuddle puddle will come alive with LED lighting above, light up stuffed animals, and amazing beats from our resident DJ, Ben Jorgens. 

Le Spa: A place where fellow burners can come relax, refresh and rejuvenate from their playa adventures. Ready made with facials, massage and mediation, we will create the space for our brothers and sisters to get back into their bodies and enjoy a rejuvenating, relaxed and refreshing experience. 

Le Party: Have you ever wondered what would happen if people let down their guard and simply explored what the night had to offer? On July 27th (at Audio SF) August 27th (Disco Chateau Camp at Black Rock City), Disco Chateau will launch our latest collaboration intended to bring people from all species of animal together. Whether you are a techie, a burner, French, American, leather daddy, cub and even mythical Greek warriors – all are welcome to explore the inner psyche of what it means to be alive.

Le French Ass Dinner: On August 29th, Disco Chateau will bring together 100 hand selected friends to explore how food can be sexy, fun and build lifelong bonds. Our Chef De Cuisine has traveled to France and back to study under a Two Michelin Star Chef and he will be lighting a culinary fire in all our bellies.

David Best & The Temple Crew Present

The Temple of Grace 2014

David Best and The Temple Crew are returning again in 2014 to build the Temple of Grace for Burning Man in August, 2014.

The Temple of Grace is intended to be a spiritual and sacred space for memorials, reflection, celebration, and to commemorate life transitions. It is the latest in a long line of temples going back to 2000, which started the tradition of the temple built as a spiritual center for this art festival. It is a special work of art given to the community, and is a spiritual refuge where thousands gather, each to engage with it in his or her own way. The community comes to write their memorials and place tokens of their transitions, and it is burned at the end of the festival in a tradition of releasing them by the immolation of the temple.

It will be finished on August 24th and burned one week later.

The temple will be 70+' high, and have a footprint of 80'x80'; it sits in a courtyard approximately 150'x150'. The structure incorporates a central interior dome within a graceful curved body made of wood and steel. It will again have intricately cut wooden panels for the exterior and interior skin. 8 altars will surround the temple inside a low-walled courtyard, creating a large exterior grounds for the community.
