About Burning Man

Burning Man is an annual event in the western US that emphasizes community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. It takes place at Black Rock City in Nevada, a temporary city constructed in the Black Rock Desert. The event culminates with the symbolic burning of a large wooden effigy known as the Man on the Saturday evening before Labor Day. Co-founder Larry Harvey outlined ten principles that guide the event, including radical inclusion, gifting, decommodification, radical self-reliance, radical self-expression, communal effort, civic responsibility, leaving no trace, participation, and immediacy.
