Burning Man has acted as a cultural center for those who oppose the status quo since its founding in 1986. Everyone becomes a participant. Burning Man is home to (and quite honestly necessitates) your true self-expression, from artisans to performers, composers to craftsmen.
Participants, commonly known as Burners, gather in the Black Rock Desert, Nevada, annually for this week-long event. This journey is the centerpiece of the Burning Man schedule for the year.
