    Nevada's Burning Man fest gets OK for larger crowd

    By MARTIN GRIFFITH Associated Press

    Posted: 07/27/2013 04:04:39 PM PDT

    Updated: 07/27/2013 07:47:00 PM PDT


    RENO, Nev.—The largest outdoor arts festival in North America is about to become bigger.
    Federal land managers have issued Burning Man organizers a four-year special recreation permit that allows a peak population of 68,000 on the northern Nevada desert this year.

    Last year, attendance at the offbeat art and music festival on the Black Rock Desert peaked at 56,000—below the previous maximum allowable population of 60,900.

    The festival will be held Aug. 26-Sept. 2.

    Gene Seidlitz, manager of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management's Winnemucca District, said the agency is requiring organizers to comply with more than 60 conditions related to issues such as security, public safety, resource management and cleanup.

    He said he's confident that sufficient requirements are in place to protect the starkly beautiful desert's environment and to ensure public safety.

    "Our priorities in managing this permit continue to be the protection and conservation of natural and cultural resources, as well as the safety for all participants and staffs," Seidlitz said. "I feel confident the permit addresses these priorities."

    Burning Man spokeswoman Megan Miller hailed the BLM's issuance of the multi-year permit, saying organizers are establishing the first shuttle bus service to the event and making other improvements to Black Rock City's infrastructure to prepare for larger crowds.

    During the annual weeklong event leading up to Labor

    Day, the temporary city on the desert about 100 miles north of Reno is one of Nevada's largest.
    "We have always been confident in our ability to grow the event safely and sustainably and have been asking the BLM for this increase for several years," Miller said by email. "We have always had a safe and engaging event and look forward to another great event on the playa this year."

    The gathering, which draws people from around the world, is the largest permitted event on federal land in the United States.

    After it moved from San Francisco's Baker Beach, the inaugural Burning Man in Nevada drew some 80 people in 1990. The first 1,000-plus crowd was in 1993, and attendance doubled each of the next three years before reaching 23,000 in 1999. The crowd was capped at 50,000 under a five-year permit that expired in 2010. The new multi-year permit allows a maximum crowd of 70,000, but organizers applied for a cap of 68,000 this year.

    The BLM issued a notice of non-compliance to organizers for exceeding the attendance cap of 50,000 at the 2011 festival, which drew crowds of more than 53,000 on two different days. It was the first time Burning Man had been placed on probation since moving to Nevada. The BLM had warned that if organizers were placed on probation two straight years, the agency might suspend or cancel their permit.

    "It's important to note that we may not reach the maximum allowable population (this year)," Miller said. "We don't want to exceed the maximum so we are planning accordingly."

    Seidlitz praised organizers' overall efforts in meeting terms and conditions of past permits. Organizers have always met stringent cleanup standards, he said, adding that the gathering pumps millions into Nevada's economy.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Ron, all that crap you mentioned will not match up to what Burning Man is. Many people try to go big and insane, but you should really just be a tourist if its your first year, an art car is wonderful of course, but a snazzy bike will get you everywhere and the playa will provide. Hope you sold the tickets to some deserving folks. If you're interested in more in a music festival, by all means, Burning Man is not for you, but if you're interested in a place that is another way of life and a utopia of all sorts, then you should have not sold your tickets.

    You've planned enough in the past it seems, so just skip all the filler and do Burning Man right.

    My friends dropped out of the man and are now seeking to get rid of 4 tickets. If anyone is seeking for face, send me a pm! Or if you know me on FB send me a message there.

    You suck,ya want to know why? Yea you are right. Better planning next year and we will do BMan and you can show me the ropes..I don't know if you are a reg on that board, but a number of them think, I think, it is just another music festival. No it's not that new show "Naked and Afraid" but it can have serious consequences if you think you know everything. Yes they buyer is from NY and is some sort of artsy dude. I made them happy so that's cool anyway. ..cr****

    I've had some annoying car troubles so now I'm trying to decide which would be better, renting a car and leaving on Sunday afternoon and getting to burning man first thing on Monday morning, or carpooling with some random people who are leaving sometime on Monday and probably getting in late Monday/early tuesday.

    I don't mind riding with people I don't know, and can make friends pretty quick, but I sort of feel like I might be missing out on the first moments by not getting their until Monday night.

    Any thoughts/suggestions?

    Might just be me but the music lineups are pretty garbage this year... it's like 90% hippie bass music and barely any house or funky shit. Wednesday on Robot Heart and then Friday night at Nexus are the only two parties that really look amazing to me. Nexus is ridiculous and if their setup/sound is half as good as last year this will be amazing:

    1:00 AM Jamie Jones
    3:00 AM Dubfire
    5:00 AM Seth Troxler
    7:00 AM Rich Korach

    Yeah I mean there are always diamonds in the rough out there, but this year's list of music just struck me as particularly heavy on the, well, heavy shit.

    For real though if either of you have recs for good parties/sets on the funky, soulful, groovy tip please let me know. I can't read the guide for too long because my eyes just glaze over after I get to about the 7th pun on the word "bass"
