From Scratch is a 1978 trailer revamped into both a live music venue and fully functioning kitchen. (NOTE: From Scratch will not be serving food at Beakerhead, but they’ll be helping you groove with wicked entertainment at their mobile DJ booth!)

What was initially created as an easily transported community hub where both great music & great food can be offered has become so much more. Rooted in the Burning Man principles of gifting and communal effort, From Scratch encourages people to share their gifts and talents with others for the pure joy of contributing to community.
