We got back from Burning Man a month ago. It was fucking sweeeeeeet. If you’ve read any of the press this year you’ve heard about all the “plug-and-play” camps and famous DJs and how the atmosphere isn’t what it used to be, how Burning Man has been commodified and how it is, alas, completely ruined. And yes, there are plenty of sparkle ponies who are only there to party and treat the event like an EDM festival but outliers exist in every society, they don't represent the whole. So to the jaded I say, Burning Man doesn’t suck and you know it.
