A city in the desert. A culture of possibility. A network of dreamers and doers. Burning Man is a global community with citizens on six continents. You may already be a member! Once a year, tens of thousands of people gather in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert to create Black Rock City, a temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. In this crucible of creativity, all are welcome.
Burning Man isn't your usual festival. It's a vibrant participatory metropolis generated by its citizens.
A unique and distinctive culture emerges from the Burning Man experience. Rooted in the values expressed by the Ten Principles, this culture is manifested around the globe through art, communal effort, and innumerable individual acts of self-expression. To many, it is a way of life.
