For Our Virgins

Newbies, Noobs, Birgins: ah, the thrill of going to Burning Man for the first time! We want you to get acculturated before you show up at camp, all wide-eyed, bushy-tailed, glittered-up and behaving like a Sparkle Pony. So listen up!

  • Read the First Timer’s Guide.
  • Take the Guiding 10 Principles to heart. These are the Cornerstones of Burning Man philosophy. And ours!
  • Read last year’s Survival Guide. While you’ll receive a copy of this for 2024 with your tickets, get started now! It’s never too early to start preparing for this, because Burning Man is not a vacation.
  • And it would behoove you to study the Anthropological History of Burning Man. One can never have enough perspective.

The 2024 Temple of Together

Try to imagine yourself here Burn Sunday morning, at sunrise – on the East side, so the sun slowly rises behind us and illuminates this beautiful Temple. We will sing. We will laugh. We will cry. And you dear one, will never ever experience anything like it.
