BURN2: a Fire Moon in Second Life

Saturday, January 28th marks the start of celebrations for the Chinese New Year – so gong hei fat choy a little ahead of time, while before it, Friday, January 27th marks the first new moon of 2017. Given both of these dates, the BURN2 team have opted to host a special Fire Moon weekend from Friday January 27th through Sunday, January 29th.

Announcing the event in December, the team stated:

The pairing of the moon on fire and the fire rooster, the new year, a new beginning…such an exciting time of year! No one shall be a mere bystander; everyone participates in some way, by exploring, driving an art car, joining the Lamplighters as they walk the playa, witnessing the burning of the Fire Rooster, grooving to the tunes emanating from the stage, marvelling and experiencing the creative builds scattered throughout the playa. You become the event, with us!

Since then, builders have been at work putting together installations and ideas reflective of the Chinese New Year theme – 2017 being the Year of the Rooster – all built around the Fire Rooster, which in the tradition of BURN2 will be burned twice over the weekend. To help keep the weekend swinging, there will be live entertainment and DJs performing through the three days, at the Fire Moon main stage.

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.
