Overview
More
A diverse band of dreamers, makers and artists gather every summer in a sprawling temporary city in the fierce heat of the Nevada desert. Embracing an alternative ethos, over 50,000 attendees come together to experience mind-blowing art projects and live in a self-reliant communal setting. Inspired by the burning of a wooden figure on a San Francisco beach in 1986, today, this eclectic festival has grown into a worldwide phenomenon.

Especially fun if your a bit of a pyromaniac and like to twirl fire surrounded by hippies and desert folk. Also a lot of random celebrities walking around the place. Thirsty days. Drink LOTS of WATER.

The traffic sucks getting there, the people are loud and obnoxious, the whole place is covered in dust, there's no running water or electricity, it's hot during the day and cold at night. I had a blast.

I'm not sure what I can add that hasn't been written. The dust is difficult, the art is amazing, the nights are colorful and loud and people are the show. You should just go. But read about what to take. You will find what you...More

It is a life changer. Hard to put in words. You must experience it yourself to understand. You will meet lots of social creative inspiring people. Stunning Atmosphere and much more to see than you can actually experience in one week. Keep on burning.

Put on your bucket list! Indescribable. Couldn't believe the number of awesome vehicles on the playa. If you like lights the nighttime is the best. Tips Be sure to practice riding a bike and hovering over a toilet seat 😉 for a few days/weeks before...More
