BURN2 is an extension of the Burning Man festival 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 Second Life, culminating in an annual major festival of community, art and fire in the fall - a virtual echo of Burning Man itself.
A long time ago, a world was conceived to let people stay in touch and interact with each other all year round, rather than just at one wonderful place once year. The conception of this place went far beyond the original idea and its framework.
In this world we can conceive an idea, carry it out and share it with the most diverse community as can possibly be imagined.
What better way to celebrate our conception, than to show what we can create for the community at large with all the fun of the fair? Food stands, games, rides, float parades, fireworks, let’s fill the Playa with fun and frivolity!
A Fun Twist for Builders!
This is a country fair themed event, and you get a choice of which type of build you would like to do. You can choose to build one of the following types of things:
Large ride or interactive attraction
Sideshow game of skill or chance
Small food stand
Suggested build that fits Fair theme (must be discussed with organisers)
The number of plots is limited - first come, first served. Think about what you’d like to do and then apply for your plot. Be sure and read the guidelines at the top of the application form, select your choice of build type and write a description of what you have in mind.
We are always delighted welcome new and experienced artists, live musicians, DJs and performers all working to an interesting theme.
We have an exciting and diverse stage show in the works and will announce the lineup very soon. Watch for an announcement in the next few days. Some performance slots will be available for self-sign up beginning next week. If you have any questions, contact Cuga Rajal in world
UPDATE: Performance self-signup is now OPEN!
A few performance slots are still available - grab them while you can!
Be careful not to over-write in spaces where another performer is signed up.
We have a diverse lineup of live performances this year!

Another Something New: Skin Burn Fashion Show
Every year after our October Burn we celebrate one more Burning of The Man, free of Lag. Skin Burn means we converge on the freshly cleared Playa to dance in the fire of the last burning of The Man without laggy clothing or accessories. Yes - NO hair either. Bald is beautiful in our world! Embrace it with open arms!
We are issuing an open call for skin designs as well as models. Come and model your own new skin if you like, as well. Your beautiful skin design may be just the one to make someone feel less self-conscious about being bald.
All skins exhibited in the show will be gathered and distributed at this year's Skin Burn event, so they must be full permissions. Remember this is a gifting event, full of Color and Design. Go Crazy!
The Skin Burn Fashion show will take place on Sunday July 3rd, 2016 at 4pm - 5pm SLT. More information will be given to those added to the list of models and skin designers for the fashion show. Interested? Please IM Daark Gothly to be added to the list.
Don't be Shy ... Be Happy In Your Skin ... Lag Free doesn't mean dull!
All are welcome to come to the event, July 2-3, 2016.
Let's really rock the playa as this event begins to wrap! Starting at noon PDT Monday we'll continue to dance, soak, race and wash! Come join us in today's activities listed below and wrap with a fantastic virtual fireworks show.
