Burning Man

An annual event that takes place in Black Rock City, a temporary venue in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada. The non-profit Burning Man Project organizes the event, which is held the week before Labor Day (www.burningman.org). Established in San Francisco in 1986, Burning Man was initially a celebration of the arts and radical, free expression. While its tag line is "a temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression and self-reliance," it has evolved into a much higher-profile event, including social media and Silicon Valley personalities as well as celebrities. People register their "Burner Profile" for tickets and activities.
