The Burning Man Journal was the first to report that the organization behind the infamously hedonistic Burning Man music festival, an event that normally takes place for 10 days every August-September in the Nevada desert, have bought a huge ranch nearby. They plan to use the land to establish a year-round Burning Man commune, and the decision is more than a little controversial.
"Fly Ranch opens the door to new possibilities, new cultural experiments, and art and innovation projects on a scale never before envisioned."
"We're a long way from defining exactly what will happen at Fly Ranch. But it's not too early to begin dreaming of the potential," they note.
In other words, the organizers themselves think is is a great idea that they say will enable "the next step in the grand experiment that is Burning Man" to be taken.
