BURN2 Santalarity’! This year, we’ve transformed the playa to an ICE PLANET! Set on a future playa, aliens have come to help us restore peace and hope and celebrate a renewed planet. Come join us Saturday, December 14, from 10 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. SLT, for music, art, skating, fire and fun!
The Black Rock Desert is colder than you might expect this time of year. A lot colder. Overnight temperatures in Nevada’s high mountain desert have hit record lows. But now, after dumping a load of fresh snow, the clouds are gone. The moon reflects brightly off the smooth, frigid, white desert. The sky is awash with stars.
It’s been a long, lonely drive from Reno. Up ahead, a brilliant light glows. You rub your eyes, puzzled by the anomaly. Nothing lives out here. What could it be? You stop your pickup and step out to get a better view, standing on your running boards. All of a sudden, something seems to be pulling you...teleporting you...to ICE PLANET on the playa!
After six years of Linden Lab support and guidance, both the Lab and Burning Man felt it was time to let the Burning Life event be completely community run and supported. This community of artists, builders, performers, and participants, collectively called “Burners” is a community so diverse, few like it have ever been seen. We ALL are that community! We will take this new beginning for our well-established event, Burning Life, and we will call it BURN2 to signify the freedom and opportunity we now have to recreate it.
With our new-found freedom comes the reality that we are now self-supporting for sims and operating costs. While the real life Burning Man event is funded by an admission fee, we have elected to fund the amazing infrastructure of BURN2; including the town of Deep Hole, our Center Camp, the Temple, Mutant Vehicles, event stages, art installations, and the MAN burn; through a combination of donations from the Burner community and plot charges for Burner camps on the sims. There will also be a lottery for free camps!
BURN2 is smaller by design than the previous Burning Life events. While smaller, we know it will push the boundaries of Second Life to be amazing and different in many ways. We hope to add as many additional sims as funding and staffing allows.
So how about showing some Burner love?! Any amount will help. Linden dollar donations can be made directly to m2 Burner, which is the BURN2 fundraising avatar. You can also make donations through PayPal to the email address email@example.com.
