BURNING MAN is an annual gathering that takes place at Black Rock City – a temporary community erected in the Black Rock Desert, Nevada. It is a network of people united in the pursuit of a more creative and connected existence in the world.
The event is described as an experiment in community and art, influenced by 10 main principles, including “radical” inclusion, self-reliance and self-expression, as well as community cooperation, civic responsibility, gifting, decommodification, participation, immediacy and leaving no trace.
The event takes its name from its symbolic ritual burning of a large wooden effigy, “the Man“.
This year, some 70,000 people came to Nevada’s Black Rock Desert for this year’s festival, which ended September 5. And they came it in style.
Burning Man fashion often looks like characters from “Mad Max” who meet those from “Star Wars.”
Here are a few of the most outstanding outfits spotted at Burning Man 2016.
