L’édition du Burning Man 2016 a cogné fort !

Un Burning Man démesuré

Pour la trentième édition du Burning Man, les organisateurs ont vu les choses en grand. En témoigne les photos complètement folles que vous pouvez voir ci-dessous.

Au programme de cette année, comme d’habitude, des installations hallucinantes, des gens nus et bourrés et d’autres trucs totalement improbables qu’on ne ne trouve qu’au Burning Man.

Mais avant de vous plonger dans les photos de cette année. Prenons le temps de nous souvenir de ce qu’était le festival à ces débuts. Un festival de freaks et de weirdos. Pas de selfies ou de célébrités. Pas de hashtags et de billet hors de prix. Juste la « matérialisation physique de l’internet » comme l’atteste ce reportage de la télévision américaine datant de 1997.

L’édition 2016 a accueilli 70.000 visiteurs dans le désert de Black Rock au Nevada. En attendant la version francaise qui devrait se tenir dans le Larzac, on se contentera des clichés de cette année.
