Burning Man

Just imagine: a city in the desert; culture of possibilities; a net of dreamers and doers. The Burning Man seems to be something unreal. It’s a mix of everything unformal in the world: art, people, place, music, clothes, etc. If you have not been there you won’t understand what it’s all about. This festival creates a unique world in the middle of nowhere in the Black Rock desert. You need to bring all you need for survival: sleep-place, water, food. DJs spin music the whole day and night, artists put their installations, and it all culminates in burning of several huge wood figures in Saturday after sunset. Just “passers-by” and viewers are not allowed to be in the fest. Each should show his creativity: artistic installations, body-art, unusual clothes and so on. No rules and no limits for the festival space. You can sit where you want, you can do what you wish, BUT all you do should be positive and contribute some part of your soul to create the atmosphere of tribal life and ancient culture with modern format. This is what heals you from outworld problems, changes your mind, saves love and peace and makes you a child of nature.

If you get a chance to immerse yourself into this esoteric world, then don’t just pass by. You will feel the essence of life. You will feel the universe inside you.
