Every year on the last Monday of August, tens of thousands of people journey to Nevada’s Black Rock Desert and set up camp for an entire week.
Why? Burning Man.
Taking its name from the ritual burning of a gigantic wooden effigy at the event itself, Burning Man is an annual convention that celebrates radical self-expression, creativity, and self-reliance.
But what does that even mean?
Well, those who have attended Burning Man say that trying to explain the event is like ‘trying to explain what a particular color looks like to someone who is blind.’
Basically, they’re saying: “you just had to be there.”
So naturally, the only way to fully enjoy and understand the complete experience of this colossal event is to purchase a ticket, pack your bags, and prepare for a week of desert living. It’s a brilliant excuse to travel.
Still not convinced? Have the burning desire to see more?
