151 Jaw-Dropping Photos From This Year’s Burning Man

27

This summer has been far hotter than usual and plenty of us have been practically melting in the unseasonable heat. However, this did nothing to stop fans from attending the epic Burning Man festival. In fact, it seemed that the heat only spurred them on — this year, the gathering was even crazier, wackier and more off-the-hook than usual!

Burning Man 2019 took place in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada and lasted from August 25 until September 2, and just like every year, it was fantastic. But then again, does Burning Man ever disappoint? Because autumn rains are already upon us and we’re in need of some of that glorious Nevada heat, Bored Panda brings you this sizzling list of the very best photos from this year’s festival. So keep on scrolling, share with your friends, and drop us a comment about which pictures you liked best and why. Once you’re done, have a look through Bored Panda’s lists about the Burning Man festivals from 2018 and 2017 as well. See how they compare with this year’s festivities for yourself and let us know which year’s gathering you thought was the most impressive so far.

The very first Burning Man festival was held on Baker Beach in San Francisco, in 1986. And every year since, the gathering has attracted what seems to be the most creative (not to mention peculiar!) people on Earth.

When I saw photos from the Burning Man for the very first time, I thought I was looking at some alternate post-apocalyptic timeline where Mad Max somehow got crossed over with Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. It was mesmerizing. It was confusing. But nobody can deny it was a feast for the eyes.

But what does the festival stand for, and what are its core values? Well, back in 2004, the festival’s co-founder Larry Harvey came up with the Ten Principles that encapsulate what it’s all about. Among these are the ideas that absolutely anyone can be a part of the festival, that we should all give others gifts unconditionally, and that the festival shouldn’t become exploited by commercial sponsorship.

What’s more, the festival promotes radical self-reliance and self-expression, as well as communal effort and civic responsibility. Lastly, the Burning Man respects the environment, calls upon everyone to participate as fully as possible, and values immediate experience, which helps overcome our inner barriers.

I would love to experience Burning Man for myself — what about you? What do you love most about the festival? Is it the quirky costumes? The supernatural art installations? Or the marvelous atmosphere?
