An Unofficial Burning Man Event Took Place in the Nevada Desert at the Weekend!

When you think of festivals that are recognised and much adored around the world, few can claim more popular than the free-spirited and always memorable annual gathering of Burning Man.

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing pandemic, the 2021 edition of Burning Man had to be cancelled back in April. That was to be the first domino in a plan that saw over 10,000 people descend on the Nevada Desert this past weekend.

An unofficial, unticketed event, known as ‘Renegade Man’ or ‘Free Burn’ online, is said to have attracted all manner of people from around the globe – even celebrities.

Officials at the Bureau of Land Management, which controls Burning Man’s home of Black Rock Desert, recently confirmed that people had been arriving at the festival’s spiritual home since 20th August.

To combat the anticipated incendiary gathering, the Bureau of Land Management also recently a series of temporary restrictions for the location. These included a ban on the ignition of fires other than a campfire, a ban on the building and burning of structures, and a ban on possession and/or use of lasers. The regulations will remain in place until the end of October.

There have been some crazy stories this year regarding illegal raves and unauthorised gatherings, but this has to be the largest and wildest one to date!
