Burning Man 2023 – all you need to know
After a two-year hiatus, Burning Man is due out in 2022, and festival excitement is at an all-time high for all thrill-seekers. This highly sought-after event also attracts around 70,000 people a year, making it one of the most popular events of the year, according to a report.
Burning Man 2023 will open on August 27, 2023 according to their tradition of starting the festival on the last Sunday of August and ending on September 4, 2023.
The highlight of the show is lighting up a statue with fire, called the Burning Man, on the sixth day of the event. In fact, Burning Man is both an art exhibition and a party. The Burning Man Festival was previously held in San Francisco with only 20 people since its founding in 1986 by Larry Harvey.
In 1990, when the statue’s incineration was banned from its traditional beach, the whole festival shifted to the Nevada desert.
The art theme for 2022 Burning Man is Waking Dreams. Previous themes include The Inferno, The Body, The Greenman etc. Burning Man is a 10-Pillar community of artists, creators and community organizers from around the world.
Black Rock City is an annual experiment in a community. Black Rock City is an experiment in a temporary community. Here, relationships are being built, neighbors meet each other, and the collective survival is tested. It is dedicated wholeheartedly to radical self-expression and radical self-confidence.
This is not an audience event. Being in Black Rock City for a day or two makes it difficult to play a role in the community. To experience Black Rock City completely, you will have to be part of the community.
