Once a year, tens of thousands of people gather in Nevada’s desert to create a temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. In this crucible of creativity, all are welcome.
A unique and distinctive culture emerges from this one-of-a-kind festival wow experience. Rooted in the values expressed by the Ten Principles, this culture is manifested around the globe through art, communal effort, and innumerable individual acts of self-expression. To many, it is a way of life.
Since its earliest days, this festive event has been a collaborative endeavor, bringing together people with different backgrounds, interests, outlooks and skills. Today, this growing community is served by a vibrant network connecting individuals, communities, events and organizations worldwide.
