Watch The Burning Man 2017 Livestream Video

September 2, 2017

It's that time of the year again where 70,000 gather in Black Rock Desert, 120 miles north of Reno, Nevada and unplug for a weekend of colorful experiences as a temporary city is erected in the desert. If you're not familiar with Burning Man, it's an annual event that started in 1986 and culminates with the burning of a large wooden statue. Burning Man is said to have started as a bonfire ritual on the summer solstice in 1986 when Larry Harvey, Jerry James, and a few other friends met on Baker Beach in San Francisco and burned a 9 foot tall wooden man as well as a smaller wooden dog. The event has turned into a playground for some of the tech, entertainment, and business world's elite. If you haven't been camping glamping in the desert this past week and for many, heading into the Labor Day weekend, you can still get a great look at the action thanks to technology (and the fact that many are no longer completely unplugging for the festival) – now there's a Burning Man livestream.

You can now watch online Burning Man 2017 until September 4th in Black Rock City. Tune in to Burning Man 2017 below.

If the images from the livestream inspire you, it's never too early to start planning for your first Burning Man experience. If you're looking for a guide you might want to read Jessie Newburn's new book, Surviving Burning Man: A Packing List For First Timers. It's currently free to download on Amazon and includes some great insights on what to expect and how to prepare for a weekend off the grid in the hot, dry, and dusty Nevada desert.
