Burning Man is more of an art "event" than a music festival, but this weeklong gathering hovers on the fissure where tomorrow’s new sounds bubble up from the underground. The Burn is not about headlining artists, but rather about highlighting the fact that each of us is an artist. Also, unlike "festivals", Burning Man does not provide a stage, there is no food being sold, no showers to clean yourself off, etc. Every single aspect of Black Rock City (it's home) is purchased, created, brought in, set up (and sometimes burned) by the participants. It's not for the day tripper for sure but give in to it and you just might be blown away but what comes out. To experience this genesis point of sound and art for yourself, start planning now for the adventure of a lifetime.
