Pink Mammoth[1] is a San Francisco-based non-profit artist collective, founded by Ryel K and Derek Hena in August, 2003. It is based partially on the philosophy of Burning Man, a radically expressive festival held annually in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada, and dedicated to unconditional self-support and free expression. It also is influenced by the Buddhist concept of the Boddhisattva, a being dedicated to enabling, supporting, and encouraging others to reach their ultimate state of enlightenment.

The organization has maintained active residencies throughout San Francisco, including 4th Thursdays at The EndUp, and has performed at other significant San Francisco dance music venues including Mighty, Monarch, Public Works, Monroe, Supperclub, Mezzanine, and Audio. These highlight the organization's heavy emphasis on community and expressive celebration by showcasing and promoting its own artist-participants, including DJs, percussionists, vocalists, live event artists, fabric designers, and graphic artists.

Pink Mammoth also participates in Burning Man, the Love Parade/Lovefest, and many regional burns such as Apogaea. Its participants have represented the collective in Mexico, London, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, and throughout the United States.
