THE TRIBE SUBMISSION FORM IS CURRENTLY ON HOLD UNTIL WE ARE READY TO RECEIVE YOUR SUBMISSIONS. THANK YOU.
Tribe: A group of Wasteland Weekend attendees who go all-out and build a group identity through coordinated costumes (and optionally, a fully-themed encampment). The minimum for tribes in 2013 will be 4 members.
Currently, tribes who have previously set up at Wasteland Weekend will get priority for the themed area in 2013. If you are forming a new tribe, you will likely have to set up in one of the new zones in the general camping area. All tribes will eventually be listed on this page with a link to their Facebook pages or websites (we will no longer be creating individual pages for each tribe).
Theme Area Rules:
Costumes: As mandated by the event, all attendees must be in post-apocalyptic costume. The more cohesive your tribe’s look is, the better (this could be similar-looking costumes, or as simple as all wearing the same patch or same style face paint).
Campsites: All tents and accessories must be theme-appropriate in order to be set-up in the themed area. That means no rented RVs, and not the tents and camping chairs that you bought at REI 2 years ago (unless they have been beaten up appropriately or disguised). The less traditional your camping gear is, the better.
Vehicles: In general, we will most likely accept any vehicles that are pre-1990, flat-black, or just look like a dusty, oxidized wreck. If your vehicle has a brightly-colored or shiny, new-looking paint job, it will probably not be accepted in the themed area (unless it’s coated in a thick layer of dirt or dust). Any vehicles that are not theme-appropriate must be hidden by theme-appropriate covers or parked in the general camping area. Please see our guide on making your vehicle look post-apocalyptic.
Wasteland Weekend reserves the right to prohibit any vehicles, structures, or items it deems unfit for the look of the themed area. (Any unfit property can be stored outside the gates of the themed area in the general camping area or simply be hidden from view.) We are trying to create a convincing 360-degree post-apocalyptic environment. We appreciate your contribution in this and we hope you understand.
Note: A tribe is not the equivalent of a “theme camp.” Tribes are about people creating a group identity. It’s not about square footage, or geographical placement. You don’t even need to set up a campsite or bring a vehicle (although it would be ideal). You can just be a tribe.
