Burning Man Festival, for the uninitiated, is perhaps one of the most original festivals around since its inception in 1986. Unlike the usual ones you see clogging your feed with flower crowns and cropped tops with bikini bottoms, it’s not meant for one looking to boost their #feedgoals.
It’s where Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Jeff Bezos of Amazon, Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, and other tech billionaires from Twitter and Uber go to unplug. You’re in the middle of Black Rock Desert where signal, dollars, and societal customs are thrown out for a raw experience with a community made up of the many people from different walks of life who go there. As a friend of mine who frequents the event said, “It’s a place where you take nothing but gives you everything.”
Recent attendees though are Paris Hilton, Katy Perry, Nina Agdal (Leonardo DiCaprio’s current flame), and Cara Delevingne. And what did they do? They ‘grammed up the place.
