The Mexico City-based art car known to Burning Man regulars as Mayan Warrior is bringing a super-secret DJ lineup and a 300-watt laser light show to the Cow Palace this Saturday.

The decked-out art car is not only on a mission to spread Burner culture and Mexican electronic music, but also fundraise for its 10th anniversary and return trip to Burning Man. Getting the car to the famed festival costs around $300,000 annually and is a labor of love for Pablo González Vargas, the CEO and founder of Latin American e-payment platform Sr. Pago.

The party is not an official Burning Man event, but it promises to give attendees a taste of the playa—with plenty of art installations and pop-up performances by members of the Mayan Warrior community. 

As always, the Mayan Warrior team is keeping their lineup of DJs under wraps until the night of the show, but at least one song is sure to make the set: “Here Comes the Warrior” is the Burning Man camp’s signature tune.
