Each year, the ethereal Black Rock Desert of Nevada transforms into the temporary metropolis of Black Rock City, where creativity, community, and self-expression ignite like never before. This is Burning Man – an unrivalled celebration of life and art, far beyond the realm of ordinary festivals taking place from 27 August until 04 September 2023.

Embrace the ANIMALIA: Discover the Untamed Spirit

This year’s theme, ANIMALIA, beckons attendees to unleash their wild side and dive into a world of untamed expression. 

ANIMALIA celebrates the diverse world of animals, both real and imagined. The Black Rock Desert, though seemingly barren, teems with life and inspiration. Humans have long been fascinated with their animal counterparts, from mythic beasts to animal deities. 

In Black Rock City, participants are invited to bring their imaginary menagerie, expressing themselves through art with love and respect for all creatures.

The Golden Spike: A Symbol of Beginning and Beyond

In July, amidst an intimate gathering of city builders, the symbolic Golden Spike marks the heart of Black Rock City. It’s more than just a stake in the ground; it is the genesis of an extraordinary journey that unfolds daily. As the Survey team charts the grid of our ephemeral paradise, Black Rock City comes to life – a testament to the joy and significance of communal creation.

Lodging in the Wilderness

At Burning Man, every moment is an experience in luxury, even amidst the arid expanse of the Black Rock Desert. Embrace the exceptional with these stunning accommodation options:

1. Mesmerising Tents: Many opt for opulent tents tailored to their preferences and nestled within the designated camping areas. Embrace nature while cocooned in comfort.

2. Extravagant RVs and Campers: Revel in the beauty of self-reliance as you bring your luxurious RV or camper, providing comfort and shelter against the desert’s whims.

3. Elaborate Yurts and Geodesic Domes: For those seeking artistry and sturdiness, yurts and geodesic domes emerge as enchanting dwellings that defy the elements.

4. Themed Camps: Indulge your passions in themed camps, where innovative living spaces, captivating art installations, and interactive experiences await.

5. Roaming Art Cars and Mutant Vehicles: Experience the thrill of staying on art cars or mutant vehicles, offering whimsical shelter as they traverse the playa.

6. Communal Abodes: Forge unforgettable connections in communal living arrangements, where resources are shared and community spirit thrives.

A Transformational Experience: “Leave No Trace”

Burning Man is a “Leave No Trace” event in the spirit of reverence for nature. Embrace the sanctity of the desert and leave behind only memories and inspiration. As the event concludes, every structure is dismantled, and the desert is returned to its pristine splendour.
