Burning Man Tickets

More of a spititual and communal gathering than a rock festival, Burning Man is an experience to behold. The annual art festival is held in Black Rock Desert, Nevada, an entire town that is formed by event-goers and planners during the last week in August. The gala culminates with the burning of a gigantic wooden effigy - that’s the fest’s namesake. The event’s population is so big, in fact, that Black Rock Desert becomes the 10th-largest town in the state, eclipsing Carson City, before the attendees pack everything up until next year. Join the party now and buy your Burning Man tickets today!

Themes and values
Given your opinion, one of the many odd or admirable things about Burning Man is that it’s not a music festival at all, even though it would look like one at first glance. The desert-based event is actually a gathering for people of all walks of life to display their art, express themselves freely and to live communally for a week.

Whatever the festival becomes is up to attendees’ whims, from learning how to safely create fire art to building a “mutant” vehicle that wouldn’t look out of place in a Mad Max movie. While festival-goers are free to do what they want, they must abide by the 10 principles of the Burning Man organization, which include acceptance of all outsiders to the community and leaving the campgrounds clean. 

Festival organizers announced that this year’s art theme will be Carnival of Mirrors, where artists and other attendees will be encouraged to put a new twist on the midways and freak shows of old and break the barrier between show-goer and performer. 

Event history
The very first Burning Man was a meetup of just two friends in 1986. Larry Harvey and Jerry James decided to burn an 8-foot-tall wooden effigy for the summer solstice on Baker Beach in San Francisco. An impromptu crowd started to show up after they saw the flames.   

After concerns of fire spreading around Northern California in 1990, the festival moved to its present location in Black Rock Desert. Meanwhile, the wooden man’s height kept growing each year until 2014’s effigy rose to 105 feet tall. 

From the very beginning, the event has championed creativity, expression, collaboration and self-reliance. When you go, don’t forget to take your spirit of invention as well as lots of water and sunscreen.
