WHERE: Black Rock City, Nevada, United States
WHEN: from 27 August to 04 September 2023
Black Rock City is a kind of ghost town, located in the expanse of the Black Rock Desert in the State of Nevada. Every year, for just eight days, it is populated by thousands of individuals, becoming a sort of temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-confidence. A place of creativity where everyone is welcome.
Burning Man takes place in this “no man’s land”, an event which, in terms of characteristics and expression, is unique on the whole planet. An incredible event that, over the years, is finding more and more success. Even VIPs and tycoons have not escaped the charm of this extraordinary event.
The name of the festival, which literally means “human torch”, comes from the Saturday night ritual, when a wooden puppet is burned. No concert or event with recall names, and no events advertised mediately. Each participant can organize exhibitions, art exhibitions, workshops, performances, games and entertainment, possibly signaling them to the organizers.
Freedom is the keyword.
Freedom of expression, of initiative … This is the Burning Man.
Thus, it is quite easy to see walking men or women completely naked or in particular clothes. It is, as mentioned, a very unusual and unconventional festival; for this reason, except for coffee and ice (the only things for sale inside the temporary city) there is nothing, because everyone has to provide by himself bringing tent, food, water, generators and so on. And if someone had not brought it? In the city, donation and bartering are allowed (in extreme cases you could even get to offer your body in exchange for a nice shot of rum !!!).
Cell phones do not work here, and some sudden sandstorms may occur; during the day the temperatures exceed 40 ° C and at night they can drop by several tens of degrees; for this reason, most events take place after sunset.
Finally, remember that all video / photo equipment must be registered at the entrance and, for some shows, shooting is prohibited. Many argue that only those who have been there can really understand Burning Man. Probably true expression, even if, in recent years, the very essence of the festival is slowly fading away. Just take a look at the real mobile homes of the rich who stop here, complete with a starred chef!
