Burn2, "Carnival of Mirrors" Opens Saturday
One of the biggest yearly events in Second Life, the Burn2 festival, is about to begin. After weeks of preparation, the final touches to the exhibits and the final adjustments to the schedules are being done as the event is set to begin this weekend on Saturday October 17 at 12 Noon SL time. This year's theme is "Carnival of Mirrors."
Builders are feverishly finishing their fantastical building, Greeters honing their gorgeous greeting skills, Rangers shaking the dust out of their hats and boots, and Lamplighters donning their robes, all in preparation for the Big Burn event we lovingly nickname, "Octoburn."
BURN2 2015: Carnival of Mirrors will open on Saturday the 17th of October at noon SLT with a procession by the Lamplighters, beginning at their Village which is not far from the Welcome Gate where you arrive. You are all invited to explore, experience and express the joy of the Burn and revel in the music, art and colourful constructions born out of the imaginations of creative Burners. And, of course there will be fire!
The event opens with a Lamplighters procession at 12:00pm SLT on the 17th, with another at 7:00pm SLT. Additional processions will take place at noon and 7pm SLT daily through the 23rd. On the 24th there will be no processions, but the Man Burns will be at 6am, 12pm and 6pm SLT on the 24th. On the last day the Lamplighters will perform their last processions at 5am, 11am and 5pm SLT - one hour before each Temple Burn. Also on Temple Burn day, Lamplighter processions will pause along their route at Center Camp for a short Fire Dance performance before continuing the procession toward the Temple.
The event will be taking place on six sims this year: Burning Man Deep Hole, Burning Man Jade, Burning Man Looking Glass, Burning Man Black Rock, Burning Man Limbo, and Burning Man Frog Pond.
