The Temple and The Man will be burning once again towards the end of next week (4th – 5th September). The Man creation is based on the original Man by Zoren Manray and the Temple Caelum of Stars is a original design by Daark Gothly.

The virtual Burning Man event has been running every year in Second Life since 2003. The event is one of the oldest running events on the grid. In 2010 Linden Lab downsized and the ownership of Burning Man was transferred/renamed to BURN2 where the community carried on the annual events.

I have blogged about my experiences over the years attending BURN2 and sharing snapshots with the community. I have volunteered at the welcome gates during various years which I really enjoyed doing. The burns of the man and the temple are probably the best highlight for me. The annual events are really good fun on the playa as it brings everyone together to make new memories.

Join the BurningMan 2.0 group in Second Life to stay updated on the latest news and upcoming BURN2 events. Please spread the word about BURN2 Virtual BURN week starting today.

BURN2 Skin Burn 2019 Starts Saturday 26th October


The Burn2 Skin Burn event takes place tomorrow on Saturday 26th October 2019 in Second Life. The first burn starts at 1pm SLT and the second burn starts at 6pm SLT.

The check in opens two hours before each burn. Everyone is welcome to participate and have fun.

The Man will be burning again but this time everyone will be in their best low lag form to see it. It’s a low lag burn!.

WHY DO WE DO THIS?
We recognise that some of us may have had difficulty seeing the Man burn last Saturday – lag is a fact of life with all the partying and the range of lag generated in the sims.

Thus, we become more radically inclusive by expending a bit of communal effort and “slimming down” to just skins and system layers, It helps reduce sim lag (BURN2 sims) and also client lag (your computer’s resources and those of avatars around you).

The location will be given out via the BurningMan 2.0 group notices tomorrow and on the Burn2 blog.

Here are the full details.
