GERLACH, Nev. (AP) — Nevada tourism officials are opening up shop on the edge of the Black Rock Desert to welcome travelers to Burning Man and help promote other interesting places and events in the state.
Organizers of the Electric Daisy Carnival music festival that's winding down in Las Vegas this weekend are among the event producers who fear new changes to Nevada's tax law could endanger their festivals' futures.
The Burning Man Festival began with a mere handful of people in 1986 on a beach in California. Now it's an annual event that attracts 50,000 people to the high desert outside Gerlach, Nevada. Two professors from the University of Nevada, Reno, have been studying the phenomenon since 2008 and they are lecturing on their findings tonight at UNLV.
