Burning Man is on again in Black Rock City, Nevada – and once again it’s a dusty, hedonistic frolic in this temporary community in the middle of the Nevada desert for the tens of thousands of people who attend each year.

According to our friends at Wikipedia, it’s described as an ‘experiment in community and art, influenced by 10 main principles, including “radical” inclusion, self-reliance and self-expression, as well as community cooperation, civic responsibility, gifting, decommodification, participation, immediacy and leaving no trace’.

At Burning Man, the community explores various forms of artistic self-expression, created in celebration for the pleasure of all participants.

Below are a few random shots from Instagrammers at this years Burning Man, and if you’re wanting to see some of the incredible pop-up architecture they manage to erect for the event, then head to here and here and then here, also courtesy to Curbed.
