Burning Man provides no set acts or entertainment, but is rather up to the participants, making it very a unique event! Known for its strong community of art and self-expression, Burning Man gets its name from the peak of the festival in a ceremony, where they burn a large sculpture of a man made of wood. If you are looking for a group of free-spirits, this is the adventure for you.
