Need help developing a package to power 15 meters of SMD6050 light strips.

This is my first post and my first pack. I'm a super noob.
I have a bike that I take to a Burning Man that I cover with 20 meters of 50/50 SMD light strips. Last year, I couldn't spend a third of a night without running out of batteries. My packs were supposed to be 150,000 mAh; I got them at Banggood, but they certainly didn't last very long. I found this 18650 battery and have now tested almost 40 batteries. I'll have plenty more batteries. I have about 25 batteries above 2000mAh and the rest below, but not below 1850mAh yet.
so here's what I need: a package that will last all night and turn on all my lights. the light strips have a voltage of 12-24 volts, but I run them on 12 V.
I also plan to build a large package to power my camp lights, swamp cooler, fan. this will be my second build. I like the idea of making one of those luggage-type suitcase assemblies I've seen.
I literally don't know anything. All your advice would be awesome. If you need answers to questions to help me, please ask.
Thank you in advance for your help! If you go to the burn, I'll take care of your bike and make you a lot of strong drinks. I do bike repairs in Playa.

I'm sorry to write in this thread, but I wanted to say that I think I saw you on Burning Man. I still miss this festival so much, especially the multi-colored costumes that everyone was wearing. Also, when I was there, I've made some new friends that are still in my life. I would love to go there even one more time, but unfortunately, I don't have the money anymore. It was a one-time in-life opportunity, and I'm happy that I didn't back up. Right now, just to remember how colorful there was, I bought different led night lights, and for now, my house is like the sun I would like it very much to go there one more time.
