Burning Man Festival

Posted July 26, 2006


Later this summer devotees will be setting up a Krishna Camp at the annual Burning Man Festival. Burning Man is a week-long festival with international draw, held annually. This years festival dates are August 28 to September 4th. Its current location is on the playa of the Black Rock Desert in Nevada, 90 miles (150 km) north-northeast of Reno. The temporary city (housing 36,500 residents in 2005) is put forth as an experiment in community, radical self expression, and radical self reliance. The culmination of the event is the burcning of a large wooden sculpture of a man on Saturday night, the sixth night of the event.

Krishna Camp will bring to Burning Man a rich heritage of spiritual culture with amazing vegetarian food, astounding performances, awe-inspiring dance and addicting music amidst unique and thought provoking art installations.

Featured Performers are Karnamrta Dasi, The Temple Bhajan Band and a special appearance by His Holiness Radhanath Swami.

It is ISKCON's sincere desire to continue to expand North America's largest outreach event, so please come and participate for a week of chanting, dancing, and feasting.
