Burning Man Extends to Ten Days

I have yet to make the pilgrimage during the hot Nevada summer to Black Rock City, but I like to stay updated on what’s going on with the legendary Burning Man gathering and learn about its inner workings. It was just announced that the week long festival that takes place at the end of each August is extending its time on the Playa to ten full days of art, entertainment, and self-sustainability.

The burners.me forum posted a note they received from the Burning Man organizers, stating, “In 2014, through coordination with the BLM, we will be opening the Black Rock City Gate to participants earlier and closing it later in order to maximize use of daylight hours, minimize traffic impacts on local roads, smooth out traffic flow, and create a safer travel situation for everybody.”

The note goes on to clarify that this is a one-year “experiment” for 2014. If there is a significant difference in traffic issues and everything goes smoothly, this could mark a permanent change and milestone for Burners across the globe!

Brian graduated from the University of Tampa in 2014 with a degree in marketing and currently resides in the suburbs of Chicago, IL. He loves beer and Porter Robinson. If you want to know what he's probably doing this weekend, just look at whatever concerts or music festivals are going on in the Midwest and you may find him there. Since he is currently unemployed, he's taking this time to focus on his jedi training, and and re-watching the entire Breaking Bad series. Ya know... Important things.
