About 65,000 people come to the Black Rock Desert every year to create a city of the future that will disappear as soon as the celebration comes to an end. This festival is about freedom, radical self-expression and creative development, where people, who wear costumes, which represent the fruit of flight into the fantasy, erect extraordinary works of art.
Date: August 26, 2013 – September 3, 201
Location: USA/Nevada, Black Rock Desert
The Burning Man was created in 1986, but only since 1995 each festival has been organized under a common specific topic. In 2018, the organizers chose a theme, more relevant than ever before. Due to the rapid technological boom and the active development of artificial intelligence, this festival will be dedicated…to robots.
The main art object in 2018 became the Galaxia project of the architect Arthur Mamu-Mani. The designer has repeatedly participated in this festival and, this year, his construction is deservedly chosen as the main installation, which will be burnt at the end of the festival.
By long-standing tradition, the largest objects will be set on fire on the last night of the art-party. From year to year this event turns into a truly unique and enchanting spectacle!
During a week you can live both in a large organized camp and free camping zone of the Burning Man. The first option offers a well-developed infrastructure with a kitchen, a rest place, water reserves, but such camps do not always accept people “from the outside”. Moreover, it is quite difficult to get around the Black Rock Desert without a special equipment – do not forget to take glasses, a face shawl and a powerful flashlight with you.
Experienced «burners» also encourage newcomers to compile a list of things to survive carefully, because it can be +40 degrees out during the day, while overnight temperatures are falling as low as +5.
For more than 20 years, those who are looking for unusual meetings and new life are coming to Black Rock Desert. Not only people who want to unleash their fantasy, but also those who would like to challenge themselves are eager to get to the Burning Man. And would you like to attend the most unusual and creative festival in the world?
