Burning Man festival 2017 launched this past weekend, attracting over 70,000 visitors from all across the globe. The week-long gathering takes place at the Black Rock Desert in Nevada and it’s jam-packed with over 130 musical performances, outlandish costumes, celebrity sightings, and of course, insane art installations.
This year, showrunners commissioned artists to create large-scale pieces inspired by the theme, “Radical Ritual.” From fire-breathing dragon cars, to a robotic female Buddha, a total of 320 structures were erected at the dusty, temporary city.
