2021 Burning Man Officially Cancelled
Burning Man just announced that its 2021 festival is cancelled.
“But, although here in the United States we may be feeling the weight lifting and the light at the end of the tunnel brightening, we are still in the pandemic, and the uncertainties that need to be resolved are impossible to resolve in the time we have.
We have decided to set our sights on Black Rock City 2022.”
Burning Man has stated that like last year, there will be a virtual festival again.
However, despite there not being an “official” in-person Burning Man this year, they noted “Yes, there still will be visitors in the Black Rock Desert.”
Burning Man Project says “Some of you will choose to gather, co-create and celebrate Burning Man culture on the playa this year. The Bureau of Land Management says at this time public lands will remain open to the public. Anyone choosing to camp on the playa this year will need to be entirely self-sufficient.”
One particular noteworthy take comes from Broke-Ass Stuart, who noted that despite the festival being cancelled, they’re still keeping $2.5 million they received from “reservation” fees. 1,000 people paid $2,500 each during the “Invitation to the Future” sale, which basically granted them a skip the line pass, and earned them the privilege to purchase full-priced tickets to two of the next Black Rock City events. Sheesh…
