Crackling and spitting in the dark desert night, the burning effigy that lends its name to Nevada’s iconic Burning Man event is perhaps more recognisable from cult film The Wicker Man. However, in Black Rock Desert it signifies only one thing, the start of Burning Man.
The green-friendly event even sees its participants clean up after themselves at the end of the festival, thus preserving the beauty and importance of Nevada’s Black Rock Desert.
A cultural and artistic phenomenon, the week-long celebration encourages burgeoning artists, self-expression, gift giving and individuality. With a different theme every year this popular event is sure to be a sell-out.
