The Burn2 Burnal Exquinox event, which will run through until Sunday, March 25th, is now open.
The theme for this year’s event is H2O = Water but H2+O -> Fire, with the press release for the event explaining the theme thus:
It is in two parts. The first we all know, that H2O represents WATER. But…the second part is not a chemical formula; rather it is an attempt to describe the process of combustion that results in FIRE. Both utilise hydrogen and oxygen, but manifest in different ways.
Just as these two gases – oxygen and hydrogen can be combined to form very different basic elements – water and fire – so the theme hopes to promote the idea that the sum of two or more things is very often something more – and that the “more” can be very different depending on how things are combined. Thus, through the imaginative bringing together of the core elements of a BURN2 event – building, art, and music – by different eyes and hands across the Playa, the organisers hope BURN2 participants will create a celebratory weekend that both reflects and is greater than all of its parts.
The weekend kicked-off at 10:00 SLT on Saturday, March 24th, courtesy of the Lamplighters, and the full schedule for the weekend available on the BURN2 website. Activities and performers include:
- The BURN2 fashion show.
- BURN of the Nebula.
- Samm Qendra.
- The Vinnie Show.
- Lamplighters Fires Dances.
- And more.
The event closes at 22:00 SLT on Sunday, March 25th, 2018 with a concert by Loreen Aldrin.
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.
