Burning Man 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us all to think carefully about how and when we can bring Black Rock City back. As you know, it takes months to plan for the Burning Man event. We have to move forward to get things ready, just in case the stars align.

Though we are planning for a return to Black Rock City in 2021, it’s impossible to say right now if the event can happen this year. Please bear in mind the following:

  1. We do not yet know if we will be able to proceed with Black Rock City 2021 planning
  2. We will only inhabit Black Rock City with the appropriate safety protocols and permits in place

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.
