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!

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!
Imagine! Just up Gate Road, you see a crowd playing around in your build. The Man stands tall in the background, arms raised. Zany art cars fill the streets, winding their way through hundreds of builds of all shapes and sizes. Greeters welcome you excitedly, and helpful Rangers are on hand. Dozens dance to a live performer in Center Camp, while others rock out to a DJ in another sim. Lamplighters will dance the evenings away, illuminating the playa. You know that the week is filled with events; the Man will burn Saturday, and the beautiful Temple on Sunday.
