1. Burning Man

Location: Nevada Desert

Date: Late August

Why Burning Man?

This is one of the wildest places you can go to. We are speaking from personal experience. Epic Art installation, Massive “Mutant” Art Cars,

Burning Man is really not a “festival”. It is so much more than that. It is an epic event, a community, co-created by the people, based on their 10 principles.

Burning Man is more than a festival; it's a community-driven event that emphasizes radical self-expression, self-reliance, and art in a temporary city set in the desert.

How Much It Costs

Ticket prices generally start around $400, but total expenses can reach into the thousands when considering travel, supplies, and camp contributions.

Type of Music

Burning Man doesn’t focus on specific music genres; instead, it offers an eclectic mix, from electronic to rock, world music, and experimental performances across various camps.

Outfit Ideas

Think avant-garde, post-apocalyptic, and wildly expressive. Outfits range from custom-made artistic creations to functional, yet funky desert gear, incorporating goggles, dust masks, and layered clothing.
