I’ve enjoyed the Burning Man festival in all its’ glory. I’ve tasted love, fear, anger, happiness and a lot of dust. To help you make the most of this festival, I’ll share some of the lessons I’ve learnt.

Burning Man changes you, but often in subtle ways. This festival is unlikely to supply answers to all your life questions. Whilst every festival, and certain life moments can and do change you, Burning Man is special, as it does possess an uncanny knack of giving you just what you need.

The Burning Man festival operates on a gift economy, this means you share what you own and help one another out. When you meet new people whom you especially like, you give them a treat or share your food and drinks with them.
How to dress for Burning Man is an individual choice. People are respected, whatever they wear. Some choose to dress, others like to be naked. Even naked, you need to be prepared for the sun and dust of the Black Rock desert.
