Sky Is Elven

Forged in the fires of Ground Is Lava, Sky is Elven is a collective of artists, performers, academics, and engineers who bring large-scale art installations and immersive experiences to Firefly. We are dark and decadent elves, who invite you to climb our treetop platforms that will keep you safe from lava and then descend into the opulent pleasures of our elven Cuddledome, where you will find beautiful butterflies, delirious dragonflies, lovely luna moths, and of course, many exquisitely cuddly elves!

Camp Greenhouse Music Lounge

Camp Greenhouse Music Lounge makes its debut this year for Firefly 2017. What are we all about? Music of course! CGHML is about bringing diversity into the musical soundscape at Firefly.

Totenkitten

Totenkitten is a fascist demagoguery devoted to crushing all opposition and imposing our will on the masses. Initially conceived as a reaction to the decadent weakness of other organizations, Totenkitten quickly took on a life of its own. It is only a matter of time before the members of Totenkitten bestride the world as gods, viewing what they have wrought by the light of burning cities. All will be broken beneath the wheels of our war machines. ...Cocktails served daily.

Breakfast Sandwich Camp

What the egg did you just egging say about me, you english muffin?

The Shire

Technically not a theme-camp, but a themed open-camping area. “The Shire” is a sound-camp free, quiet zone. No official theme-camp events or members, so open and welcome to anyone, but it is most suited for experienced campers and hikers because it is located way way up at top of “Point -of -no-Return” trail. Technically this location is off the map and any further north is officially restricted by Firefly (you’ll know when you’ve gone too far).
