Burning Man is the ultimate festival, taking place in the Nevada desert. Started in 1986, the festival has grown into a cultural phenomenon and has inspired imitation festivals around the globe.
Bringing roughly 70,000 people to Black Rock City in the heart of the desert, Burning Man is about escaping the confines of capitalism and freeing oneself from the everyday things that confine creativity and imagination.
Attendees set up all sorts of sculptures, art cars and other creations as well as ritual tents, DJ booths and anything else you can imagine for revellers to experience and interact with.
Running from the last Sunday of August to the first Monday of Septemeber, everything leads to the culminating event: the burning of a large wooden effigy representing “the Man.”
