Virtual Burn Week 2021

BURN2 is participating in Burning Man's Virtual Burn 2021 event. With Black Rock City cancelled once again, we have a version of our annual "echo" with stages, art, music, and even the Man and a Temple! We invite Burners from all over the world to visit and participate with us.

August 29th through September 5th
The BURN2 Virtual Burn 2021 event is free to attend. It will open starting August 29th - come to the workshops during the week, chill out in a cuddle puddle at one of the Burner Movie Nights. Some amazing burner art and camps were curated and are on the playa for you to explore all week long. The stages will come alive with performances from Burners all over the world starting Friday, September 3rd. Come listen and dance with your avatar to a wide array of tunes, explore the art, participate! We have a full weekend of performances! There may be times when Deep Hole becomes full. Throughout the event, BURN2 will have a live stream channel active during the performance weekend to showcase the stages. More information will be available on the website. There will be a virtual Lamplighters fire dance on Saturday just before the Man Burns, and also on Sunday before BURN2’s Temple Caelum of Stars burns.

Coming for the First Time?

BURN2’s virtual playa is accessible by a PC/Mac using a desktop world viewer. Create your free account witha customisable avatar and find us using our instructions to arrive. You will see a newcomer area to help you quickly learn the basics, and Burners can assist with questions.
While the event is free, there will be donation kiosks in various places so you can make a voluntary donation directly to Burning Man Project

If You Have Attended Our Events Before

Then you know you’re in for a great week and weekend! We celebrate the Virtual Burn with Burning Man! Come to this event, then look forward to - even get a plot and build your own camp - our upcoming October event, themed “The Great Unknown” on an expanded playa, set to take place October 8th through 17th.

Did You Know...

Of course you knew that BURN2 is the oldest running virtual regional, residing on Deep Hole in Second Life® (SL) and echoing Black Rock City, right? It is! We’ve existed since 2003 and became an officially sanctioned Burning Man Regional in 2010. Our community is active and welcoming new Burners to join us.

Burn With Us!

You can join the BURN2 community - it’s free! BURN2 is an extension of the Burning Man culture and
community into the world of Second Life. It is an officially sanctioned Burning Man Regional, the only virtual world Regional out of more than 100 Regional groups worldwide, and the only Regional to burn the Man! This unique virtual Regional spreads the culture and Ten Principles of Burning Man year-round in the world of Second Life hosting 6+ events per year, culminating in an annual major festival of community, art and fire in October – a virtual echo of Burning Man itself.

As always, we look forward to welcoming Home Burners and the community. Enter the playa through the Gate, walk-on with the Lamplighters; visit the Rangers, and check out our effigy burn. Wander, explore, climb, interact. Visit the stages, where DJs and musicians bring music to soothe, inspire, excite and incite to dance. You will be surrounded by art, music, fire and welcoming Burners! See the (continuously updated) BURN2 Calendar at for the event’s schedule.

Want to stay informed through group notices? Join BurningMan 2.0 group in Second Life. Do a search on groups or pull up the profile of any BURN2 staff member, open the group properties, and click the Join button. As always, the Ten Principles serve as our framework for how we want to live and do things together.
