18 Things You’re Missing Out On If You’re Not At Burning Man
The festival’s 30th year is LIT.
Burning Man kicked off over the weekend as 75,000 people descended into the Nevada desert to celebrate art, creativity and self-expression. For thirty years, the annual festival has become a temporary community in a dried up lake in the Black Rock Desert, where individuals passionate about counter-culture, community and alternative ways of thinking gather. The eight day event runs from August 28 to September 5 this year, and is expected to have spectacular art installations and a bustling electronic music lineup.
While I can’t imagine trying to survive in the desert wearing a sand-apocalypse mask and lugging a giant water bottle everywhere I go, I applaud all the “Burners” out there living and breathing this unique festival culture.
Here’s everything you’re missing out on at Burning Man if you’re not there.
