Press Release! Burn2 2019: Metamorphoses Update

BURN2 2019: Metamorphoses

Opening 5:00pm SLT, Friday, 11 October 2019
Ending Midnight SLT, Sunday, 20 October 2019
Reserve Your Plot!

As is tradition every year, artists and creatives are invited to get their plots and create homes and art installations in this virtual temporary city on six sims. This year’s theme, Metamorphoses, presents interesting interpretation opportunities within the framework of the Ten Principles of Burning Man and build guidelines.

It’s not too late to get your own plot!
The plot sale continues! But don’t wait too long - the build period ends on the 9th of October. If you are an artist or builder (or a dusty camper!) then come, get a plot and create your own story of transformations, changes...metamorphoses - or a comfy little camp to relax and enjoy the dust, tunes and art everywhere. Where to get your own plot? The location is below, and don’t forget to tap the sign for the URL to the Plot Owner Questionnaire, which helps us find the best possible placement for your camp: Burn2 Plot Kiosks in Deep Hole.

Life has begun to stir on the virtual playa, with trucks hauling in the prims needed for infrastructure and various builds. Interesting creations are sprouting up out of the dust. We can’t wait until the event opens on the 11th of October, when music, dancing and fire can begin, and a community comes together once again.

Or Apply for the Plottery
If you find you are unable to afford a plot, but you want a place to call your home on the playa, you can sign up for the Burn2 Plot Lottery. In keeping with our gifting tradition, we have a limited number of 512 square meter plots with a maximum LI of 156.

You Could Create a Small Art Display
The community is invited to contribute small art to be displayed in across the six sims. Just fill out the Metamorphoses Small Art Plot Grant Application to add your bit of creativity to the event!

No Such Thing as Bystanders at Metamorphoses
The moment you step onto the dusty playa, you are not a mere spectator, you’re part of the spectacle: Welcome Home!

Gift Your Talents in Tunes and Dance
We have three official stages at Burn2's Metamorphoses event - the Main Stage (also called the DJ Stage), the Live Stage, and Center Camp. If you enjoy performing, you can sign up for a slot on the desired stage. Visit the Burn2 Metamorphoses Stages page to determine which stage you would like to play! Signup is quick and easy, and slots are first come, first served.

A number of camps of all sizes and genres will also feature their own DJs and stages. There will be a great deal of music in the air!

And, last but not least...the Man will Burn! And the Temple, too.

SHARE the News and Plan to Come!
We look forward to welcoming Home Burners and community. Experience Burn2 once again, walk through the gate, and if you are a virgin Burner, ring the bell! Follow the Lamplighters on their twice-daily processions; visit the Rangers, view the Man and meditate in the Temple. Wander, explore, climb, interact. Visit three official stages and many performance camps with music to soothe, inspire, excite and incite to dance. You will be surrounded by art, music, fire and welcoming Burners! See the (continuously updated) BURN2 Calendar for the week’s event schedule.
