Hot, Dry, Dusty and NOT compatible with human life. You read the words and think I’m a drama queen. I am not exaggerating.
Do your research before going. Decide if that is something you REALLY want.
All that said, it’s not the physical location that makes Black Rock City a place to visit, it’s the PEOPLE. Burners ROCK :) The planners, the attendees, they are the city.
It is so worth visiting. For me, it was a life changing event. I met so many great people and saw so much inspiring art, it renewed my faith in humans.
I was planning next time before we even left the city. I can’t wait to go back.
Bring an open mind, a comfy bike, two pairs of undies and socks per day, Gatorade, and comfy shoes. A clock is required! And sunscreen. Bring your own music, especially if you aren’t into techno. Techno blasts out of every orifice in BLC, 24/7. You need a shade structure of some kind, not just a tent. Enough can not be said about the joys of cups with lids, bring several. Plan on your car getting coated in playa dust, no matter what you do or how careful you are.
Don’t wait one more year! Start planning now!over 3 years ago
