[Spoiler Alert] Burning Man 2015 Construction Photos

Hey all! Dave “Rabbitt” LeClair here! Setup at Black Rock City always excites the hell out of me, so I thought I’d share these Instagram photos from the hard workers out in the desert already! I understand that some of you consider this stuff to be spoilers, so proceed with caution!

    Extremely useful info particularly the last part 🙂 I care for such information much.
    I was seeking this particular information for a very long time.
    Thank you and good luck.

      • Maybe he got a good wholesale price? Or maybe he negotiated a design contract where he had unlimited use, and the designer presumed they would only use it once. …Nah, Larry would not take advantage of an artist like that. For Larry is an honorable man; So are they all, all honorable men – and women.

        • Another juvenile, bile-laden, post. Any chance you’ll ever have anything positive to contribute other than your narcissistic braying and entrenched negative jabs?

            Please, Badger, tell us what line of reasoning you see for: “Larry Harvey has wanted it this way for awhile. My guess is the Man will be designed like this for a few years at least.”

          • …Absent a reply, Badger, we can only presume that sadly you in fact have no other explanation, and your comment was only an ad hominem attack to divert attention from daverabbitt’s comment.

  4. Hi just a request from Marco and the Bliss Crew as posted at R-Evolution on the Playa. We would prefer no photos be posted on social media until gates open.
