I FEEL LIKE BURNING MAN is one of the most misunderstood festivals of our generation. It’s portrayed as a wild infestation of hippies, a place of “What happens at Burning Man, stays at Burning Man” mystery, and a dream-like world where there are no laws, limits, or boundaries. Yet despite whatever crazy, out-of-body experiences might occur, what outsiders fail to see is that Burning Man is first and foremost about community.
I think this video by Evgeny justifies that concept. Burning Man is a party, for sure, but it’s so awesome because people are coming together to feel good about themselves. Some people live the Burning Man life all year round, but others only get to let loose for these few days. Having a place where both kinds of people can interact is seriously epic, and important.
