    My friend went to Burning Man this year in the Nevada desert I think and the pictures she posted on Facebook were nothing short of fucking amazing…….It was like howls moving castle in the desert, people on bikes and dust everywhere, gorgeous people wearing post apocalyptic costumes in a post apocalyptic scene and I just doubled over but at the same time Ive never been more inspired to go to America.

    Has anyone been to one of these festivals?

    Nope but hoping to go next year, so anyone thinking about it. Let me know. Could start up some realjock group. I'll be going from London as I'm moving there in 20 days

    Man, I've always wanted to go to Burning Man. It's on my bucket list. I just can't really imagine a place where I can be just myself as an artist and do whatever my artistic impulses guide me to do. I can't wait until I go because I definitely am going to try and get there before I die. Have you gone? Do you know anybody who has gone? How is it?

    I'd like to go sometime. The lineups at RiotFest the last 2 years were too good to pass up, and it's only a couple of weeks after Burning Man, so I couldn't make it to both.

    I was planning on going alone, but I wouldn't want to experience it alone, if there were people going that I could meet while there that would be awesome.

    these pictures are awesome made me want to go so badly, pure escapism

    My hubby and I made it to Burning Man this year, but only for one day! It was quite the experience, though, and we'd definitely go again.

    Those of us on this realjock thread should actually try to organize a trip to Burning Man together. I know that I would be in such a thing. Anyone else interested?

    Lol, you're trying to get laid. hahaha. The man told you that he was married. No one uses the word "husband" if such a thing doesn't exist. You use the word "boyfriend" or "lover" if you are faking. So, refocus your attention brother because you have started a thread here which could actually have real consequences in the real world okay.

    Damn, all the great things we have in the USA, and Burning Man is what draws you?

    Oh, well - whatever gets you here.

    I'm not trying to get laid I was genuinely interested if he was really married or not I've never known a gay married couple before, its not common in Australia.

    I'm attracted to all festivals, if I had it my way Id be a festival nomad travelling on my own bus around the world.

    I love America for its forests and nature reserves, I'm a bit of a hippy at heart and love to go camping so yeh……Don't know what id be like in the city, I get overwhelmed in over populated places and don't have fresh air icon_smile.gif

    My husband and I live in a "separate but equal" state where we have all of the same rights as a married couple but it's not technically called "marriage." The right for gay couples to marry is currently before a higher court, and since the governor and attorney general don't intend to appeal a favorable verdict, marriage in the state might not be far off. I call him my husband because that's how I think of him, and it's easier than explaining all of the legal nuances of our partnership to people.

    I had a lot of reservations about Burning Man before I went, i.e. everyone is just tripped out and naked in the desert. There are a lot of naked people, but I did not see or interact with a single person who I thought was in an altered state of consciousness (except alcohol). We met a lot of very interesting people, listened to some great music, and saw some good art and some bad art. The most remarkable thing, in my opinion, is that in a pop-up city of 70K people with NO public trash bins or dumpsters, there isn't a single spec of trash anywhere. People are expected to "leave no trace" and most of them don't. It's an incredible example of how the social contract can be implemented for the public good (we all agree not to litter = there isn't any trash anywhere).
