What's Happening

Themes for Burn2's events in 2024

Thanks to the community we have themes for all of our events next year!

  • Winter Burn (January 26-28) "Dreamcatchers in the Snow"
    Native American dream catchers from the Ojibwe tribe were traditionally used as talismans. Their purpose was to protect sleepers, especially children, from bad dreams, nightmares and evil spirits. Native Americans believed that at night the air was filled with dreams, both good and bad. The theme involves bringing dreams to life. In the builds, the theme of dreams, and keeping the bad dreams away. Inspirational builds that blur the line between dreams and waking life.
  • Burnal Equinox (March 22-24) "Hope Springs Eternal"
    As the Winter comes to an end, Spring brings the hope of renewal and rebirth. Includes flowers blooming, and the dance of life.
  • Conception (July 26-28) "Whimsy"
    (wɪmzi ) also whimsey. uncountable noun. Whimsy is behavior that is unusual, playful, and unpredictable, rather than having any serious reason or purpose behind it.
    Tap into the absolutely wonderful chaos that is Whimsy...
  • Burn2 Octoburn (October 18-27) "Curiouser & Curiouser"
    We "echo" Burning Man's TTITD every year including the theme, read about it here.

In December: Holidays on the Playa

Come down to the playa
Ride along on the train
There’s a rink! Bring your skates
or watch, it’s fun just the same.
A spot for Solstice reflection,
tunes, fireworks, dance and play
Soon farewell to the old year -
Happy Holidays to you we say!

NYE BURN: Farewell to 2023

We are going to celebrate and say bye bye to 2023, and welcome the new year! Burn times will be noon SLT and midnight SLT - but the party goes all day starting at 10am SLT!

Mark your calendars to come and join us on the 31st of December. The first burn will happen at noon SLT, then again at midnight SLT. And through the day we'll know when -and where- in the world it is 2024!

DJs and Live Performers! You can schedule a slot to play at Burn2 that day! Click below to sign up!
