Update: Receive free glowfur bracelets for any donation (1 for $25, 2 for $150, 4 for $500 and up) - Kickstarter is not letting us edit our rewards at this point but they will be waiting for you on Shagadelica.
From the very beginning our vision was to create a vehicle that pays tribute to music, festivals and the beauty of celebration driven by creation. Shagadelica takes us from the counter culture revolution of the 60's and 70's to the twisted metal Mad Max evolution of Burning Man art cars and beyond into a bright and playful future.
A classic british double decker bus that has been completely disassembled and rebuilt from engine to structure, mutated with heavy metal, high technology and plush luxury. The bus is lined with 9000 feet of industrial strength RGB flat rope lights with over 250,000 DMX controlled LED lights carefully diffused and wrapped in custom white fur for a smooth magical effect.
The interior of the bus, from furniture to ceiling, is completely upholstered in soft glow fur. The fur creates a dramatic effect as it dynamically changes color. The floor glows and changes color to match the furniture, ceiling, and exterior. It's simply beautiful.
Featuring a fully equipped "Mad Trax" DJ booth and giant lasers capable of projecting a ceiling across the entire dance floor, 8 scanners, nine theater lights, and a multi-beam laser sky projector that is visible for miles.
75,000W of electricity, 16 giant speakers across three sound systems with a total of 34,000W of incredible sound, and 20,000W of lighting ensure that this mind blowing art car is a desert beauty that cannot be missed. Shagadelica is an experience unlike any other.
It even has a nice dance platform for the ladies ;-)
Shagadelica is equipped with a 260 lb cruise liner horn. When the music is at its peak and everybody is dancing hard, a press of a button will resonate for miles letting the rest of the world know just how friggin amazing this experience is.
This isn't a fantasy project. This is a reality. We've invested tens of thousands of hours to bring this vision to fruition. Each year we invest our heart and soul to bring it back to the playa. This year, we need your help… anything goes a long way.
Keeping this bus alive has been an epic endeavor and a rite of passage unto itself. Be part of this journey and help us give this gift to the playa this year.
We can't do this without your support. When you're dancing your ass off in the cool desert night (feel that freedom coursing through your veins!!!!) and the glowing lights from Shagadelica are shimmering on your glistening skin as the massive sound system gyrates through your entire body you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that YOU MADE THIS HAPPEN.
