Black Rock City
Burning Man festival organizers are pushing back after the U.S. Bureau of Land Management requested upgraded accommodations for its officials at this year’s event in the Nevada desert.
Nearly 70,000 people from all over the world expected to attend Burning Man later this summer have a new way to travel to the Nevada desert.
Day one of Burning Man in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert has turned into a bummer. A freak rainstorm has drenched the festival, forcing organizers to cancel events and lock out thousands of campers because of flooding and mud.
Burning Man organizers have agreed to pay the Pershing County sheriff’s office more than $600,000 a year over the next 10 years for security and other services at the annual counter-culture festival in the Black Rock Desert.
