Burning Man is one of those parties that is worth hitting at least once in your life. The event begins on the last Monday in August, and ends on the first Monday in September in Black Rock Desert, Pershing County, Nevada.
It takes its name from the ritual burning of a large wooden effigy, which is set alight on Saturday evening. The event is described as an experiment in community, art, radical self-expression, and radical self-reliance.
