Burn With Us!

BURN2 is an extension of the Burning Man culture and community into the world of Second Life. It is an officially sanctioned Burning Man Regional, the only virtual world Regional out of more than 100 Regional groups worldwide, and the only Regional to burn the Man! This unique virtual Regional spreads the culture and 10 Principles of Burning Man year-round in the world of Second Life hosting 6+ events per year, culminating in an annual major festival of community, art and fire in October – a virtual echo of Black Rock City. 


As always, we look forward to welcoming home Burners.  Enter the playa through the Gate, walk on with the Lamplighters; visit the Rangers, and check out our effigy burn. Wander, explore, climb, interact. Visit the stages, where DJs and musicians bring music to soothe, inspire, excite and incite to dance. You will be surrounded by art, music, fire and welcoming Burners! See the (continuously updated) BURN2 Calendar at https://www.burn2.org/event-calendar/ for the event’s schedule.


The Great Unknown, October 8-17th, 2021

https://regionals.burningman.org/event/burn2-october-burn/

We are wrapping up our participation in Virtual Burn, 2021 and moving full steam ahead to October.  As is tradition every year, artists and creatives are invited to get their plots and create homes and art installations in our virtual temporary city.  For 2021, we are going to double the size of our past virtual playa with a total of 12 regions - plenty of space for seasoned and new Burners to build their art, theme camps, and even camp villages.  So collect some friends and join together to make your scene on BURN2’s virtual playa, 2021!  Yes, you can group build and make a great village or art installation come alive and share it with friends.  

This year’s theme, The Great Unknown, is Burning Man’s 2021 theme and we are presenting this as BURN2’s theme for our annual October burn at BURN2.  Did you participate in Virtual Burn Week? If yes, bring it out again to BURN2 in October. We’ll help Burners bring their 3D builds into Second Life, help campmates decompress on our Playa, and we can help you with some supplies that you can decorate as your own.  Take your virtual theme camp to another level by creating events or gatherings in your space and we can post the activity to our website in our version of the Who/What/Where Guide.  We have a large Burner community at BURN2 eager to burn with you and we are excited to see what you will bring out to the virtual Playa and share with us!  We have “plot sales” going on now and it’s equivalent to buying a ticket to camp on the Playa.  This helps to pay for the cost of renting the sims in Second Life and is completely non-profit.  Check out more at www.burn2.org.  Welcome Home!

We have a Plot Lottery

Apply for our Plottery if you find you are unable to afford a plot, but you want a place to call your home on the Playa.

Create a Small Art Display

Big art sounds intimidating?  We are inviting Burners to contribute small-scale art that will be displayed across the Playa.  We will have more info on how soon.  Meanwhile, put on your art beret that gets those creative juices flowing and fire up the sketchbook or mesh build apps now and add your bit of creativity to the event in October.  

  

Gift Your Talents in Tunes and Dance

Not into building virtually?  Burners build bitchin’ stages for performers and even have a Center Camp Stage at  Burn2.   We now have a performer's self-sign-up application on our website for DJ’s, live mixers, live musicians and singers to get signed up quickly.  The stage times are first come, first served. And all camps aka “plots'' have their own sound stream and can create their own stage so you can even do your thing inside your camp space and invite others to join you, of course.  Want to read, interview someone, have poetry readings?   You can do that with a live stream or in local voice chat.  

And, last but not least…the Man will Burn! And we will build and burn a beautiful Temple, a space that we hope you will enjoy similar to the experience you get from being in the presence of a temple on a physically dusty Playa. 


SHARE the News with your friends and Plan to Come!

We look forward to welcoming Home Burners and our community. Walk through the gate, and if you are a virgin Burner, ring the bell! Follow the Lamplighters on their twice-daily processions; visit the Rangers, view the Man and meditate in the Temple. Wander, explore, climb, interact. Dress your avatar in your Playa finest.  Visit the many performance camps with music to soothe, inspire, excite and incite to dance with your avatar in your own living room. You will be surrounded by art, music, fire and welcoming Burners!
