Burning Man is the kind of event you’re either devastated you missed or wonder why on earth anyone would ever go.
So while they say there’s something for everyone in the Nevada desert, Burning Man is a polarizing festival to say the least. Burners treat their annual pilgrimage as the ultimate freedom and escape, while anti-burners prefer to view the week long retreat as little more than a hippie’s playground.
And it’s probably a little of both.
Either way, when more then 70,000 people come together to celebrate art, to party, eat, drink, dance camp, and suffer through dust storms, some magic sure can happen.
So whether or not it’s your jam, Burning Man 2016 was certainly something to behold.
