At last year’s Dark Skies Singularity event, 700 participants showed up for the four day Burning Man regional event. Being the L.A. Burning Man regional director at that time, I had the privilege of being one of the producers of the festival.  I had hooked up with Cameron Grant, the Las Vegas BM regional director and his team, and the rest is, as they say, history.

Though I’ve retired my role as the L.A. Burning Man regional head, I still provided support with the production of this event, though not at the same level as last year’s inaugural event. I can attest to the amazing hard work of all involved, in particular the Las Vegas crew. This festival is really their baby. It’s on their turf (Nevada). Everyone really puts their asses on the line. It’s a labor of love, and it shows.

It became a multi regional effort last year, as Cameron and I had been talking about “connecting the dots” in regards to pooling our resources as heads of our regions. Once our alliance was set, the Las Vegas crew picked up the ball and ran with it. I don’t mean to diminish the efforts of the L.A. contingent, without whose influence and committed efforts and immeasurable passion this event could not have become what it is!

Here are some shots from last year’s event: The Boogie Man doing what he does best! Just to entice you. I hope it helps!

This Burning Man regional event is exceptional in its diversity. Last year we had participants from Salt Lake City, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, NYC, Vancouver… and probably a few others.

It’s about a 3 hour drive to the Roach dry lake-bed from Los Angeles. A drive well worth taking, considering the amount of fun you’re going to have once you get here!

There are hotel accommodations nearby if camping isn’t on your agenda! Showers, rooms, casinos, restaurants… Brush up on your poker! Check the Primm Valley Resorts Website for accommodation information.
