ABOUT ROOTPILE

We are Rootpile, a theme camp at Burning Man.
We love all that is Burning Man, and we want to support more diversity in the music and culture that you can find there. We bring high-quality, professional live Bluegrass music to the Playa! Rootpile is a camp dedicated to exposing more folks to live Bluegrass music and southern mountain food & culture (BBQ, Biscuits, Pinto Beans, Grits, Country Ham!!).
Rootpile also hopes to attend other regional Burns in 2020.
