Burning Man

Burning Man is an annual gathering of approximately forty thousand people in Nevada's Black Rock Desert the week before Labor Day. Journalists, scholars, and filmmakers who have chronicled Burning Man agree that the event defies classification. It is a unique phenomenon, predicated on a level of spontaneity that borders on anarchy. The nature of the event may vary from year to year or from person to person, emphasizing both the individual and communal experiences.
