Who is going to vibecamp?
Capacity is limited to 800 people for 2023. At the first vibecamp, attendees came mostly from a loose connection of networks on twitter. This included rats, postrats, EAs, burners, tech bros of various stripes, lurkers and people who had never heard of any of those things. The attendees at the first vibecamp were overwhelmingly open, kind, and just downright pleasant to be around. We anticipate that many of those who joined us for the first event will be returning for the second one -- and look forward to the opportunity to make so many more new friends!

What will happen at vibecamp?

OTHER


Are pets allowed?
Only licensed service dogs.

Can I play music all night long?
There are no official rules for noise at this venue, but if it’s getting late and you’re bothering other vibers, we will ask you to quiet down.

Who do I look to for help during vibecamp?
We will have volunteers on site that will be the point of contact for questions about events or the site, or if you need to contact an organizer  about something more serious. PLEASE report harmful behavior  directly to one of the organizers IMMEDIATELY. We  will have plans in place to respond to issues, but cannot do so if we do not know they are happening.  There will be a single point of contact for interpersonal/community issues and we will  make sure everyone knows how to contact them  to share anonymous complaints as we draw closer to the event.

How do I contribute to vibecamp?
Do a project or bring content! At the first vibecamp attendees organized art sessions, board games, circling, workshops, dancing, and more. We will soon have a form for you to fill out, letting us know what you want to do at vibecamp. Colby (@zerothaxiom, colby@vibecamp.xyz) will help you figure out a time and place for your project. Additionally, you can be a volunteer. If you’ve already filled out this form and indicated your interest in volunteering then we may be contacting you about volunteer duty.   We also have a donation field on the ticketing page specifically to go into a fund to help sponsor low income attendees, and will be starting a crowdfunding campaign soon to help support the organization as whole.

Why are tickets more expensive than at the first vibecamp?
This event includes a whole extra day! The next vibecamp will also be much larger and require a lot more work from the team as well as more resources, EG: portable toilets- plus the org team has some fun surprises planned for attendees we think you’ll be pretty excited about. Ticket prices were so low for the first vibecamp because we didn’t budget in any payments for the people working full or part time on the event.  In order for the event to remain the cool, vision-driven project it has been so far and not have strings attached by outside investors, we needed to bring prices up a bit. We’ll still be working to get as many low-income  people access as we can manage.

COMMUNITY VALUES


We don’t like rules governing behavior, but we’re aware that it’s up to the organizing team to set the tone for vibecamp.

Beyond ‘just vibe, bro’, here are a few things we wanted to tell y’all:

Largely, identifying misconduct will be at the discretion of the org team. We will have people marked as ‘fae’ onsite in shifts that will escalate issues to the org team if necessary. We, the vibecamp org team, reserve the right to ask anyone to leave vibecamp without a refund if we feel it is an appropriate step to take.

Things that we will have zero tolerance for include:

  • acts of physical or sexual assault (the safety of attendees is VERY important to us)
  • publicly doxxing the names of psuedonymous attendees (don’t be a dick)
  • posting photographs/videos/speech that contain people who have not consented to such (again-don’t be a dick, people)

By default, don’t post pics/videos/transcipts and don’t name/imply names unless everyone involved is on board with you doing so. The Chatham House Rule is a great one for this community – you can talk about what was said or what happened, but can’t name names or make it easy to tell who said/did what unless you have explicit consent. Please take a look at our ToS for explicit rules we’re putting in place moving forward.

Vibecamp is our baby. We’ve collectively spent thousands of hours working to bring this vision to life. We want to be able to hang out with friends old and new, and have a great time together! If any attendees are acting in a way that makes you uncomfortable, please don’t hesitate to bring it to our attention directly, or to a fae volunteer who can contact us. We won’t be able to be everywhere at once and we will do what we can to make this a space where we can all be comfortable in our unique selves.

So what is it that we do want to see there?

YOU, in all of your glorious weirdness. Wear costumes (or don’t)! Make art! Play, talk, dance, meet new people! Touch grass! Curiosity and kindness are values we stan. We will have a crazy range of viewpoints and political leanings represented among attendees. This is a perfect opportunity to let go of what artificially divides us and meet one another as humans.

It’s hard to put a finger on our values as a community, because we are so diverse, but here’s our short list:

  • participation rather than spectatorship
  • fulfilling conversations
  • illegibility and the ability to go meta
  • gentle, friendly pranksterishness
  • building an IRL home for ingroup
  • using social media to connect people who wouldn’t have met otherwise
  • personal and collective growth
  • deep, meaningful connection

vibecamp is far more than just a bunch of internet strangers getting together at scale – it is the fulfillment of a dream, a crucial next step along the path towards a better future. We have such incredible people in this community, so much creativity, passion, and talent. Fostering connections between all of us means creating the conditions necessary for amazing people to get together to share thoughts and ideas and begin planning even greater endeavors together.

In the fullness of time we envision vibecamp moving around the world, spawning regional weekend get-togethers that happen more than once a year, and perhaps eventually culminating in purchasing land for a central event location year round. Stay tuned! Give us feedback! Offer your skills and passion! Create what you want to see! We can’t do it without you.
