Burning Man: 17 Myths Exposed


Each year in August, the news media runs eye-catching stories about Burning Man, the annual gathering of thousands of people for a week-long celebration on the Playa in Nevada.

With smirks and wisecracks, the reporters often make fun of the alternative society while focusing almost exclusively on the more raucous and exhibitionistic of the Burning Man participants. While the event’s wide variety of creativity and diversity are sometimes mentioned, the tone of the news coverage is usually one of condescension.

Countering the misinformation regularly doled out by uninformed media, writer Scott G (recording artist The G-Man) has written an article that reveals the truth behind the 17 most common misconceptions about the event.

Entitled “Burning Man: Fact & Fiction,” the article deals with such topics as ritual, clothing, art, social interaction, environmental impact, music, and drugs.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:
"Fiction: The apocalypse and/or Armageddon are welcomed at Burning Man.
Fact: Firearms are not allowed in Black Rock City, and there is a volunteer security team of several hundred people. There is also a long list of rules that are enforced for the good of the community and the safety of its members. There may be a lot of wild clothing, body paint, anti-mainstream art, and a great deal of music and/or noise, but the parking lots at many sports arenas are closer to the apocalypse than Burning Man"
