Burning Man Cancels 2021 Festival In Northern Nevada Desert
RENO, Nev. (AP) — Burning Man organizers are canceling this summer's annual counter-culture festival in the Nevada desert for the second year in a row due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The San Francisco-based group posted a video on its website Tuesday that said there are too many uncertainties to resolve in time to hold the event as scheduled Aug. 26-Sept. 3 in the Black Rock Desert 100 miles north of Reno.
Burning Man CEO Marian Goodell said the "difficult decision" is "based on the best information available to us." The Reno Gazette-Journal first reported the news Tuesday on its website.
