Entertainment & Music
Tens of thousands of people gather in northern Nevada’s Black Rock Desert to create Black Rock City, a temporary and vibrant metropolis, dedicated to community, art, self-reliance and self-expression. Burning Man is a practice in community; “Burners” create art, exchange ideas, and participate in the burning of the Man, a symbol whose meaning is as varied as the attendees themselves.
On select Tuesdays and Fridays this summer, we'll have live music poolside at High Camp! Soak up the California sun at 8,200' at theHigh Camp Pool & Hot Tub while listening to the soothing sounds of local and regional musicians.
