Burning Man is a liberal arts festival that takes place in the last week of August week before Labor Day in the Black Rock Desert, in Northern Nevada. This annual arts festival whose attractions include colossal art installations, all-night dance parties, marathon kite-flying sessions and off-kilter fashion shows, is described by many participants as an experiment in community, artwork, absurdity, decommodification radical self-expression, and radical self-reliance.

This year some 50,000 people have headed to the Black Rock Desert, 120 miles North of Reno, to take part in the festival while weathering extreme conditions.
