Burning Man is yearly gathering of about 70,000 people, many from the San Francisco Bay Area, celebrating love, life, passion and art during one week in a desolated desert in Nevada.­

The event takes place each last week of august in an immense dry lakebed called Black Rock Desert.­ A temporary city is built where about everything is permitted except violence, money and commerce.­

The culmination of the event is the burning of a large human-shape figure in a giant bonfire, hence the name (Burning Man).­ The city disappears completely at the end of the week, leaving no trace.­
