Black Rock City 2022

Once a year, tens of thousands of people gather in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert to create Black Rock City, a temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. In this crucible of creativity, all are welcome.

We are excited to build Black Rock City with you in 2022! When we’re together again in the Black Rock Desert, it will have been three years — time that many of us have spent imagining what we can all bring to BRC 2022 to really make a difference. Learn about our theme for the year, Burning Man 2022: Waking Dreams. Returning to Black Rock City in 2022 will be an endeavor that involves each and every one of us. If you’re new to Black Rock City, please see our most recent Survival Guide. Looking for a way to volunteer and plug in? Fill out our Volunteer Questionnaire

Subscribe to the Jackrabbit Speaks and the Burning Man Journal to stay in the know about all things BRC-planning and more including ticketing information, efforts to make BRC 2022 and beyond more sustainable, diverse and inclusive, and how we intend to keep our community safe as we gather together in the summer of 2022. 

And if you want to track every day, hour, minute, and second until the Man burns… we’ve got you covered.

See you in the dust!


Burning Man is not a festival! It’s a city wherein almost everything that happens is created entirely by its citizens, who are active participants in the experience.
