History

We are one of the oldest villages at Burningman. Founded in 1995 with a population of just 30, we’ve grown now to our current size of about 720. We are home to many hard working artists, and our campers create some of the most spectacular large scale art pieces on the playa.

We estimate that the Village has produced a total of over 400 public works of art at Burningman including Flaming Lotus Girls, Illumination Project, Tactile Environments, Flaming Windmills and literally hundreds more.
