BURN2 is an extension of the Burning Man festival and community into the world of Second Life. It is an officially sanctioned Burning Man regional event, and the only virtual world event out of more than 100 real world Regional groups, and the only Regional to burn the Man!
The BURN2 Team spreads Burning Culture and Burning Man Ten Principles year round in Second Life, culminating in an annual major festival of community, art and fire in the fall - a virtual echo of Burning Man itself.
To access BURN2 in Second Life, you will need a Second Life viewer installed on a computer that meets software and hardware requirements, and we suggest a broadband Internet connection of 2Mbps or better. To find BURN2 once you're logged in, do a map search for Burning Man. You can't miss us!

BURN2 2013: CARGO CULT was a fantastic event, filled with the joy of Burning community and a fabulous Burn of the Man. But it’s NOT QUITE over 'til we have the SKIN BURN!
What is Skin Burn? It’s bringing the community together again in a low-lag way to watch the Man Burn one more time. We attend in just our skins (system clothing optional). No scripts, no attachments, no HUDs, no AOs - just US! Wear creative colorful, glorious skins or just come as yourselves. Enjoy great tunes, an awesome Burn, and Burning with the community!
All this will happen on Saturday, the 9th of November at two times to accommodate most time zones: 9:00am SLT and 6:00pm SLT. The greeter area will be open for 2 hours before each Burn time. When you’ve de-scripted and detached, you will get a special group invite and the landmark to the Man Burn site. You can only access the playa if you are in that special group.
Interested in performing at BURN2 2013: Cargo Cult? Then you've come to the right place! Just fill out this very, very brief application, and then we'll contact you to signup for timeslots! Yes, it's that easy! But before you do....make sure you are familiar with the Ten Principles because BURN2 events are DECOMMODIFIED. This means no advertising or promoting, no selling, no tip jars, and no group joiners.
OK with that? Excited to join us on the playa? Then start here!
