Burning Man is a week-long annual event held in the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada, in the United States. The event begins on the last Monday in August, and ends on the first Monday in September, which coincides with the American Labor Day holiday. The 2017 Burning Man Festival took place between August 28 and September 4. An estimated 70,000 people came to Burning Man 2017, from all over the world to dance, express themselves, and take in the spectacle. After last year's Da Vinci's Workshop theme, the 2017 focus is Radical Ritual. Given the festival's radical roots, it's the perfect theme to pay homage to Burning Man's past, while making way for new ideas.
