Welcome Home to Burn2!

Trailing a cloud of particle-based dust, a weather worn pickup truck adorned with spray paint and stick on mirrors comes to a skidding halt. Slowly, the driver emerge… a gaunt figure wearing a cowboy hat, goggles, t-shirt, a Utilikilt, and lizard skin cowboy boots.  In the face of a warm sun floating high in the WindLight sky, the driver kneels, one hand caressing the dry, pixelated desert floor. This place is inviting, familiar.  The driver smiles as a single, unbidden phrase comes to mind:  Welcome Home!

Time to break out your camping gear, all you desert denizens!  Burn2 is fast approaching, coming to the digital playa this year from the 20th through the 28th of October, 2012! With our initial four-region layout, you’ll find plenty of room to party and play!

Parcel sales will begin with a kick-off town hall event on August 11th. You’ll find a new and lower price structure in place this year along with over a dozen small (512 sq. m.) parcels to be given away via lottery!

Come join us once again at Burn2 — an officially-sanctioned Burning Man Regional event!

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.

The BURN2 Team operates events year around, culminating in an annual major festival of community, art and fire in the fall – a virtual echo of Burning Man itself.

We’d like to encourage you to use the following labels and hashtags when you write about the event: Burn2,  #burn2 . We will promote those tags to make it easier for people to find your content
