Burning Man finally fights Instagram culture and bans high-end camp

Friday 15:26 GMT

Organizers behind the Burning Man festival – the annual counterculture celebration in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert – have finally acknowledged long-time “Burners’” complaint that the event has evolved too far from its roots. In a lengthy blog post, CEO Marian Goodell called for a “cultural course correcting” – which includes giving the boot to some high-profile, and controversial camping groups.

Goodell ended on a positive note, urging participants to “preserve and protect the community ethos that sets Burning Man apart from mass-produced events”.
