Burning Man is setting its sights on returning to Black Rock City in 2022. After weighing out every option to host a safe and sustainable 2021 Burning Man event, organizers have ultimately made the tough call to move forward next year. This falls within Burning Man’s deadline to come to a decision by the end of the month.
Burning Man shares in the Facebook update below:
The past 14 months have been a turbulent journey of evolution and change for every human on this planet.
