Resident Advisor has just released its Top 10 August Festivals around the Globe and I thought I would share the list. The one I want to go to?? Burning Man in Nevada. I have met a few people lucky enough to have experienced Burning Man first hand, and according to them it is like nothing else. This once obscure small gathering of artists and musicians has evolved into an annual week long festival of 50,000 participants living in thousands of camps, occupying 37,500,000 square feet of camping space.
Sounds kinda crazy…would love to hear if anyone out there has gone or is planning on attending.
“Once a year, tens of thousands of participants gather to create Black Rock City in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert, dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. They depart one week later, having left no trace whatsoever.”
