Why do people burn the Burning Man?
The sculpture is burned to cap off the event.Burning Man is a week-long large-scale desert event focused on "community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance" held annually in the western United States.For some, the event is a sanctuary for art, music, expression, and creativity; for others, Burning Man represents a ground for chemical and/or sexual experimentation. And for yet others, Burning Man can be a celebration of their sober identity, writing a vivid and unconventional chapter of their life in recovery.

What was the original purpose of Burning Man : Burning Man is all about self-expression and the rejection of corporatism and capitalism. The experience of creating and viewing art and living in the moment is Burning Man's purpose. Attendees famously create a fleeting, self-sustaining community that (theoretically) leaves no trace or trash upon its completion.

How many deaths at Burning Man

One person

One person died at the festival, the Pershing County Sheriff's Office confirmed in a statement Sunday morning.

How do people survive at Burning Man : Bring at least 1.5 gallons of drinking water per person per day, plus more for washing dishes and cursory bathing. (Don't try to stay squeaky-clean on the playa. It's futile – and you can't dump your gray water on the playa anyway, so the less you produce, the better.)

Personal Transportation Vehicles NOT Allowed

Larger stand-up scooters, fat tire scooters, gas-powered bicycles, powered quadricycles, ATVS, mopeds and motorcycles are not allowed inside the Burning Man event.

It's also the home where camp members sleep, eat, and take care of their needs while living in the desert. Theme camps began in 1995 and have become the way the majority of people camp and participate in Black Rock City. They are the interactive core of Burning Man.
