Burning Man, USA [Places To See Before You Die]

5 years ago

Burning Man, a week-long annual event in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada, is difficult to explain. Even the organisation thinks so... on their website they state that it`s like teaching a blind person what colour is.

The event is described by many participants as an experiment in community, art, radical self-expression, and radical self-reliance. A complete city of 50,000 people without rules and restrictions... like a playground in the desert. Thus in short, a very very artsy festival (as you can see on the pictures). You might wonder why they decided to call it Burning Man... Well, it takes its name from the ritual burning of a large wooden effigy on Saturday evening (picture).

Although I don`t consider myself a very artistic person (though i like art) who dresses artsy, behaves artsy etc. But the event does look pretty cool and spectacular to me, although I`d expect lots of weird people hanging around there ;)

Would you visit an event like this?
