Saturday, April 2nd and Sunday, April 3rd, 2016, marks the 2016 BURN2 Burnal Equinox event, which will take place at Burning Man Deep Hole.
The theme for the event is Picnic in the Playa, with the announcement press release reading in part:
After all these years, the rains that sometimes hit the Playa have come to damp the dust down more often. What has long been a dry lake bed is slowly filling once again from meagre trickles of water that are finally able to sustain some life.
A few plants are taking hold here and there but trees are yet to spread their canopies. In celebration of the Equinox we once more head to our Home for our first gathering of the year, a giant communal picnic. A new fresh living Home awaits, for us to start a new fresh year.
Those wishing to participate in the Burnal Equinox as a builder are invited to complete and submit the builder application form, and are asked to read the builder guide prior to submitting their application.
The press release notes that applications for DJs, live musicians and performers who wish to take part in the event will open shortly – check the BURN2 website for updates.
BURN2 is an extension of the Burning Man festival and community into the world of Second Life. It is an officially sanctioned Burning Man regional event, and the only virtual world event out of more than 100 real world Regional groups and the only regional event allowed to burn the man.
The BURN2 Team operates events year around, culminating in an annual major festival of community, art and fire in the fall – a virtual echo of Burning Man itself.
