Every year, thousands of people flock to Nevada to visit a temporary city and its community but Burning Man 2020 will be different as the event will be going completely virtual with an event called Virtual Black Rock City (VBRC.) For Burning Man 2020, Black Rock City will not be built physically in the desert but organizers will be virtually exploring the theme of The Multiverse.
The ticketed virtual festival will accommodate up to 100,000 attendees, acknowledging that people need connection more than ever. At the center of VBRC will be the temple designed by architect Renzo Verbeck and artist Sylvia Adrienne Lisse, which resembles an eight-point star.
According to the organizers, "We're not sure how it's going to come out; it will likely be messy and awkward with mistakes. It will also likely be engaging, connective and fun."
