At the end of August, thousands of people from all over the world gather in the Nevada desert at Black Rock City to be a part of Burning Man 2019 festival one of the best festivals in August from around the world.
The event first started in 1986, on Baker Beach near San Francisco. Along with 20 people, Harvey and Jerry set fire to an 8-foot tall wooden sculpture of a man. Later in 1990, they have moved the festival from the beach to a desert. And now, around seventy thousand people from America and all over the world attend this exciting event.
People often confuse it for a festival, but it is not wrong to say that:
Burning Man is actually a temporary city, built for a week, where people from all races and cultures unite to enjoy the thrills of life to the fullest.
Each year Burning Man comes up with a theme to make the event more exciting. In 2008 they have chosen the ‘Robot’ theme. For 2019, they have announced their theme as “Metamorphoses”
So well-known is this event that some of the country’s biggest names like Elson Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, have also been spotted at the Burning Man Festival.
