Burning Man goes Virtual

Burning Man has cancelled its Black Rock City event this year and revealed plans to host a virtual alternative instead due to the “painful reality of Covid-19”.

The organisers of the annual festival announced on Friday 10 April that it will cancel the 2020 festival, which was set to take place in the Nevada desert from 30 August to 7 September.

“After much listening, discussion, and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision not to build Black Rock City in 2020,” they said in a statement.

“Given the painful reality of Covid-19, one of the greatest global challenges of our lifetimes, we believe this is the right thing to do,” they added. “Yes, we are heartbroken. We know you are too.”
