Burning Man wins for one of the most unique music festivals to date. This year's festival is sure to be just as grand as the rest.
Every year, Burning Man embraces its out-there location with over-the-top themes and art installations. In past years, we have seen Boeing jet nightclubs, scorpion cars and more.
This year, the festival theme comes from Isaac Asimov’s 1950 sci-fi work, I, Robot. 2018 marks the first year of Burning Man since founder Larry Harvey's passing.
News has just dropped that a 100-foot-tall mirror ball – also known as The Orb – will be premiering at Burning Man this year. The orb is inflatable and was created by Bjarke Ingels and Jakob Lange, a team of Danish architects.
Here is what they have to say about The Orb:
“The ORB is a mirror for earth lovers – reflecting the passing daytime, evolving life, and other art works beneath it – A new planet to sci-fi fans, a wayfinder for travellers or just a huge disco ball to those who love a good party. Visible from most of The Playa, it will help Burners navigate the desert and find way. At night, the ORB will blend entirely into its surroundings and become part of the desert. The ORB is a tribute to mother earth and human expression – designed to easily inflate and deflate, leaving no trace on the Playa.”
