BURN2 2016 will be opening its gates on Saturday, October 15th, and will run through until Sunday, October 23rd 2016, culminating in the burning of the Man the Temple on the closing weekend of the event.
The theme for this year is Da Vinci;’s Workshop, matching that of the official Burning Man event, and builders have been hard at work preparing camp sites across the four regions of this year’s event, and festivities will run right through the week, culminating in the burning of the Man on Saturday, October 22nd, and the Temple on Sunday, October 23rd.

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.
