Burning Man is an eight-day-long annual festival that takes place in Black Rock City, Nevada. The event is described by organizers as an experiment in community, radical self-expression, and radical self-reliance and takes its name from the ritual of burning a large wooden sculpture of a man on the sixth day.
This year, the event was held from 27th August to 3rd September. The theme for 2007 is “The Green Man”, which anticipated the most participants ever, at 47,097.
