Lineup :: Theme Camps


Theme Camps are another interactive element of The PEX Summer Festival. Theme camps usually create an ambience, a visual presence, and in some way provide a communal space and/or provide activity. The following Theme Camps have currently registered:

Bangarang
Philly's most infamous and dastardly crew of pirates, lost boys, and pickles, also known as BANGARANG!!! brings their special blend of mischief and shenanigans to PEXfest this year! Rock out with us and embrace your inner rager. Music from noon till midnight and a treasure trove of workshops, activities, and shenanigans to enjoy and participate in.  This camp will also be the special location of the wedding of BANGARANG's Captain, Pirate Tim, to Rani, his lovely and amazing bride.  We ask that if you join us in this special occasion please be respectful as this will be a semi-traditional Celtic wedding ceremony. Thank you!

Digital Native
We are the Natives. We are the Digital. Come find yourself... Come lose yourself...

Camp Yoda
Camp Yoda at PEX Summer Festival is an RV camp, organized in the grassy area just off the RV camping space. The camp features spiritual healing, Swedish massage, psychic readings, Angel card readings and delicious cocktails and beverages.. The camp offers a chilled out vibe, a place for PEX attendees to come to relax and refuel their party energy. Camp Yoda operates during the daytime from noon to dusk.

Like the Bedouins and Yaquis of the desert, or before when the Sumerians began building independent city states with their own cultures and cults, languages, and kings, we congregate under our bayt, our casa, our home - to celebrate our individuality and union, our mélange of cultures – our meso creso.
