Bureau of Land Management threatens the future of Burning ManBurning Man

Beloved desert festival, Burning Man faces yet another obstacle, this time in the form of an environmental impact statement from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Earlier in the year, Burning Man confronted its growing influencer culture with ticketing changes. However, the most recent issue proves a lot more challenging than just cutting down on Instagram-ers and could hold serious negative implications for the future of Burning Man.

In an announcement released on March 20, Burning Man stated after reviewing BLM’s Draft Environmental Impact Statement for Burning Man, the proposals were “in direct conflict with [their] community’s core principles” and would potentially “outright kill” the event. The 372-page draft comes in response to Burning Man Project’s request for a 10-year permit for Black Rock City — home to Burning Man for the last 29 years.

The biggest concerns Burning Man cites include several mitigations recommended by the BLM that would result in, “federal government replacing, overseeing, or managing areas of Black Rock City’s operations that have been successfully built and managed for decades with expert, dedicated staff and thousands of volunteers.” The cost estimates for implementing BLM’s proposed “mitigations” and “monitoring” come out to $20 million per year and would increase ticket prices by $286 per person.

Burning Man asks the public to submit feedback while the draft is still under consideration. The deadline for public comments is April 29 and more details can be found here.

Burning Man unveils 2019 temple designBMJ TempleofDirectionTop

Every year, Burning Man sifts through hundreds on design submissions for their beloved temple – a space for burners to reflect and share their experiences. Now, after much deliberation, Burning Man has decided on artist Geordie Van Der Bosch’s “Temple of Direction” for the 2019 event.

Pictured above, the temple was chosen for it’s “elegant simplicity,” with it’s ascending towers mimicking the gates of the Fushimi Inari Shrine in Japan. With a variety of angles of the temple shown on their Instagram post below, the anticipation for Burning Man 2019 is starting to rise for the festival’s dedicated fanbase.

Your 2019 Temple: “The Temple of Direction” by Geordie Van Der Bosch. Katie Hazard writes: “The Temple of Direction is a linear space, capturing the elegance and austerity of the torii gates at Fushimi Inari Shrine in Japan, where the artist previously lived. The linear lines form a passage that expands into a large hall, eliciting both a physical experience and a metaphysical journey. It’s a space that responds to the openness of the playa by creating a framework that encourages you to travel from end to end.” Read more in the Burning Man Journal! | Renderings from Geordie Van Der Bosch | #burningman #brc #blackrockcity #temple2019 #temple #radicalselfexpression #participation #thankslarry

Good Morning Mix: Bliss out with Tycho’s sunrise set at Burning ManTycho Burning Man 2018

The aftermath of 2018’s edition of Burning Man has left burners with audio relics reminiscent of past times. One of those is Tycho‘s sunrise set from the Black Rock desert on August 30. It’s everything fans would expect from Scott Hansen and is padded with stretching ambiance, downtempo percussion, and soothing melodies. When thinking of Tycho, sunrise set at Burning Man fits the comparison. The relaxing set is an exploration of sounds and slow-paced rhythms that don’t fit the typical EDM night scene, making it a perfect morning mix.

The American musician, composer, songwriter, producer, photographer, and designer thanked Weval for the mix inspiration, along with Rob Garza, Willits, Glue70, Kiyoka and the Dusty Rhino Crew for making it Tycho’s set special every year at Burning Man.

Tracklist:

Fila Brazillia – A Zed And Two L’s

Burning Man is no average festival, and as such, the desert-based event warrants no average sets.

“I’m guilty of getting lazy and keeping some of the same routine and playing [the] same songs,” Diplo wrote in a recent Instagram post that contained ten clips from the DJ’s various sets over the course of the weekend. “But at BM I get to play records for the first time, bring back old records, improvise, connect with old friends, find new energy, do amazing back to back sets,” Diplo continued.

Diplo delivered a multitude of sets that allowed the LSD constituent to break with his standard MO across various Burning Man stages — including the no name camp, camp jou jou, the 747, and the church, among others. Instead, they got to watch him live as he shuffled through his library to drop some heat that rivaled even the temps of Black Rock City.

“…creating a vibe w friends and random people riding bikes around you is some of the moments that make me feel like DJing is still one of the greatest jobs in the world. And I’m so lucky,” Diplo concludes the post. Swipe through Diplo’s Instagram collage to relive some of the producer’s liveliest moments at Burning Man 2018.

If you have time to swipe – here are a couple of sets I played at Burning Man. My job is usually make songs that you hope people can dance too and to go out and play lot of sets every weekend . As you can imagine even that gets tiring . I’m guilty of getting lazy and keeping some of the same routine and playing same songs .. but at BM I get to play records for the first time bring back old records . Improvise .. connect with old friends find new energy .. do amazing back to back sets .. find random art cars to pull up get lost in some lights and find songs I never heard before . Just creating a vibe w friends and random people riding bikes around you is some of the moments that make me feel like DJing is still one of the greatest jobs in the world . And I’m so lucky .. thank you to robot heart .. the church . No name camp . Camp question mark . Camp jou jou. Bounce art car . The 747. Bunk

bed . The Christina The sol riser and everyone else .. especially to @flumemusic and @simihaze and @richmedina for rocking with me

Weekend Rewind: Skrillex and Diplo bring Jack Ü to Burning Man [Stream]Skrille Diplo Jack U Burning Man Dancing Astro

It has been a long four years since Jack Ü‘s heyday and EDM seems to move much faster nowadays. Now Diplo manages to sprout a new supergroup every few months, but his original side project team up with Skrillex was a particularly fun moment for dance music. The two superstar buddy DJ’s make a meal out of their short lived partnership, roping in headlining slots across the world, a Madison Square Garden affair, halftime performances, and of course a legendary performance at Burning Man. Skrillex and Diplo brought a special Playa-primed version of their Jack Ü collaboration to Camp Questionmark, and of course an unforgettable two-hour back-to-back set ensued.

Ah, the summer of 2014 — a simpler time. A few months prior, the two co-headlined Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Skrillex was just months off of his debut LP Recessand Diplo was dominating the airwaves with “Express Yourself.” Everytime Jack Ü hit the decks it was a party. It was an amusing slice in time for dance music, so with this year’s edition of Burning Man now drawing to a close, a revisit to one of Jack Ü’s most memorable outings is certainly in order.

Burning Man is one of the most iconic music and arts festival in the entire world. Simply nothing on its scale exists elsewhere. While larger music festivals do exist, Burning Man is by far the largest festival held in such a remote location. This, of course, causes all sorts of interesting anomalies. The National Weather
