RENO, Nev. (AP) — Federal officials long have raised concerns about the air quality at the annual Burning Man celebration in the Nevada desert where festival-goers have become accustomed to getting covered with playa dust.
Burning Man festival organizers are awaiting a federal environmental impact statement from the Bureau of Land Management, which is expected to reveal whether the festival will be allowed to increase its maximum population to 100,000.
RENO, Nev. (AP) — Spectators were encouraged to stay seated for the Burning Man 2018 finale, with watchful rangers and medical staff ready to tackle anyone making a run for the flaming pyre in Nevada's Black Rock Desert.
RENO, NV (AP) — Burning Man organizers are threatening to sue federal officials over a dramatic increase in traffic stops of vehicles bound for the annual counter-culture festival in the Nevada desert 100 miles north of Reno.
Burning Man organizers are pushing back on traffic stops along the main road to the event’s Black Rock location, calling them "unconstitutional" and expressing concern that the stops are impeding preparations for the annual event, which begins on Sunday.
A little bit of Nevada culture has migrated to Washington, DC. The Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum has mounted an exhibition of art from Burning Man, which over the years has become an international force of culture.
