Death Guild Thunderdome has been bringing everyone's favorite fighting arena to various festivals - mostly Burning Man, recently Wasteland Weekend, and the occasional appearance at Knotfest - since 1999. This our 20th year, and while we're as excited to bring the dome out as ever, we're in a bit of a jam.

Running a dome isn't cheap. In addition to storage fees, renting a truck and generator capable of moving & powering our show run well into the thousands of dollars - and that's leaving out the maintenance costs associated with dome and rigging replacement and keeping our sound system healthy.


Normally, we pay for all this by (1) collecting dues from camp members, most of which go towards dome operations (we have no camp kitchen or shared food infrastructure) and (2) running fundraisers, recently as an attraction for big shows like Knotfest or the party at Pier 70 formerly known as Ghost Ship (the proceeds from which, again, go towards dome operations). Last year our show promoter had to cancel weeks before we were due to put the dome up due to unexpected budget problems - so now we have an unexpected budget problem, too.

There are a lot of causes worth donating to both on and off the desert, and both in and out of the festival scene. But, if you've got some cash to spare, we could really use a hand this year.
