Venue: Black Rock City, Nevada, USA
Burning Man is a famous week- long event which takes place annually at the Bakers Beach in San Francisco. This event begins at Bakers Beach and migrates to northern Nevada’s Black Rock Desert by its end. Every year, Burning Man event starts on the last Monday in the month of August and concludes on the first Monday in September. This mega- event gets its name from the activity of burning large wooden effigies on Saturday evening. The first ever Burning Man festival was organized by the Black Rock City in the year 1986. In April 2011, it was announced that a nonprofit organization by the name “Burning Man Project” will be developed under this famous American festival.
Dancing and drugs are some of the few highlights of the Burning Man event. The venue of this event is a mix of idealism and hedonism. The large Man effigy is placed on the desert location, known as Playa and as soon as the event kick starts, it turns into a culturally curious destination. The artistic spirit of this Burning Man festival is equally enjoyed by both the hippies as well as the Silicon Valley CEOs. Burning Man event wraps up on Labor Day and thousands of people reach out to celebrate this experiment of reconciliation as well as rebirth in Nevada.
