Each year thousands of revelers head to the Black Rock Desert in Nevada for the Burning Man Festival.

 

The annual gathering has taken on something of a mythical reputation for debauched partying and an alternative lifestyle. From Aug. 28–Sept. 5, you will have the chance to experience it for yourself.

At its core, the festival is designed to encourage artistic self-expression and promotes principles such as community cooperation and “leave no trace.” Another core principle is the idea that life inside the festival should not be based on commodities, but rather on gifting.

 

As such as you will not be expected to pay for drinks, food or other items inside the festival, but rather to trade items you bring with you for other things that you do not have. The idea makes the festival incredibly open and welcoming, with sharing and collaboration seen at a level far removed from that of normal society.

The temporary settlement of Black Rock City is made up of thousands of art installations, and music can be heard all around. The focus is on the community rather than big-name artists, but the unique atmosphere attracts more and more attendees every year.

 

Tickets to Burning Man cost $390 and are available from the festival’s official website. More than 60,000 people are expected to attend the 2016 edition, with Reno the nearest large city to the festival grounds.

Review: Sopa Barcelona

Located on a flat corner in Barcelona’s Poble Nou neighborhood, a site for many a tech startup or already established tech giant (like HP Enterprise and Booking.com), Sopa serves as a perfect lunch spot during the workday. The cafeteria-style eatery lets you fill up on vegetarian and vegan dishes and either dine in, take the food outside to the patio dining area or take it back to the office for a lunchtime meeting.
