Burning Man is famous the world over, with Burners coming from all corners of the globe to check out the party. Last year one rumor was that Ashram Galactica, a turnkey camp modelled after a 5-star hotel with its own concierge, had been booked out by 200 Australians. We’re not sure if that actually happened – their web site says they only have 4 suites, and doesn’t mention anything about 2012 – but the dingo contingent was definitely on the Playa this year, in full force.
And they brought a TV crew with them. This 15-minute mini-documentary on Burning Man was just aired on national television in Australia. It’s mostly positive, although they do highlight sexual assault as an issue there.
