On August 25, the next Burning Man started in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada — one of the most famous festivals of independent art and expression in the world, the hallmarks of which are unimaginable costumes, half-dressed people in masks protecting from sand and dust, ‘mutated’ cars and performances that you can join.

Artists from around the world traditionally bring a lot of art objects into the desert, united, sometimes very conditionally, by a common theme. Burning Man 2019 will end on September 2, and some of the objects after that will be burned along with its main symbol — a giant human figure.

The territory of the festival is considered to be ‘free of money’ — you can only exchange with other participants, but you can’t sell or buy anything — therefore, the ‘burners’ take everything they need to live in a tent camp. At the same time, one of the main principles of the event sounds like ‘leave no trace’: they take away tons of garbage left after a week-long life of thousands of people in the desert.

Celebrities often come to the festival, and some American companies pay a ticket of $425 to their employees — their leaders believe that a joint experience of an unusual experience in the desert helps inspire employees and unite the team.
