This spreadsheet has a very impressive “Burner Bucket list“, listing other events around the world that Burners would enjoy.
Please comment if you have been to any of these events, let us know what you thought of them.
Burner culture is clearly spreading around more than just the Black Rock City Playa, although some events on this list such as “CEBIT” and the “Dakar Rally” are questionably related to Burning Man. The international pole dancing contest might be more up the alley of Burners. I would love to see an Art Car version of the Dakar Rally, but the route is not really suitable for art cars. I’ve been to CEBIT and it was a German computer trade fair, nothing like Burning Man. You’d get sprayed by an MP7 if you tried to drive an Art Car into CEBIT. Maybe it would be more of a Burner-friendly event if they moved it to Berlin instead of Hanover. The good old Love Parade featured Carl Cox playing to 1.7 million people, more than 50 trucks with sound systems and built-in dance floors – it would seem to be a suitable place for a Burner Art Car rally.
