BURN2 Burnal Equinox 2015: Balance opens today in Second Life


BURN2 Burnal Equinox 2015

BURN2 Burnal Equinox 2015

BURN2 Burnal Equinox 2015: Balance opens today at 10am SLT  over at the BURN2 Burning Man region in Second Life. The weekend event runs until 10am SLT on Sunday 29th March 2015. There will be live DJ events, drumming, and live entertainment during this weekend.

There will be friendly and helpful greeters at the gates ready to help out and ensure that everyone has a nice welcoming experience. Let’s celebrate Balance!

Balance – Equinox is the time when the day and night are of equal length, it is also the start of both Spring and Autumn. In the virtual world we can mix all things together, so we can have bats flying down to sip the nectar from the new spring flowers in the daytime, or autumn leaves transforming into butterflies at night. As always our only limitation is our imagination.

Spread the word about BURN2 Burnal Equinox 2015: Balance and come over this weekend. :)

Today is BURN2 Caravansary Grand Opening Day


It’s grand opening day! 

BURN2 2014

BURN2 Caravansary 2014 opens officially today at 12pm SLT/PDT in Second Life through until Sunday 28th October at 11:30pm SLT/PDT. This year it’s going to be the best ever and bigger than before!

The annual event will take place at the Burning Man regions in Second Life as usual and again it’s resident community supported for the 4th year running. As many know BURN2 is an extension of the Burning Man festival in real life and it’s all virtual in Second Life. This year there will be a caravansary that occupies the crossroads of a dreamland with many exciting places to explore and discover. There will be live performances, live shows, lamplighters, rangers, greeters, fire and much more.

BURN2 Caravansary Theme

This year, we will create a caravansary that occupies the crossroads of a dreamland: a bazaar of the bizarre, wherein treasures of every sort, from every land and age, flow in and out to be flaunted, lost, exploited and discovered. This is not a tourist destination, but a home for travelers who come here bearing gifts. Amid the twisting and the turnings of its souk, participants will come upon an inexhaustible array of teeming goods and unexpected services.

Anyone may pose as ‘merchant’ here, and anyone may play a ‘customer’, but nothing in this strange emporium shall have a purchase price — no quid, no pro, no quo — no trade at all will be allowed in this ambiguous arcade. According to a rule of desert hospitality, the only thing of value in this ‘marketplace’ will be one’s interaction with a fellow being.

Our desert inn will also be a scene of luxury and cultivated ease. An apron of fine carpets will spread out beneath the shade of portals that surround a courtyard. Here, travel-wearied pilgrims may relax, inventing pastimes as they watch the whirling world go by.

Workers of great wonders will be welcome here; fakirs, dancers, sadhus, seers and potentates will throng through this performance space, like figures that adorn the fabric of a silk brocade. The sounds of finger cymbals, chimes, and music of acoustic instruments will fill the air.

By night, bathed in the lambent glow of lanterns gently swaying overhead, fire spinners will perform around the Burning Man. This year’s Man will rise directly from the desert floor and tower many stories high. Its massive torso will evoke a tiered pagoda; its ornate head will be a lamp that welcomes people home.

Bystanders become participants; participants share in the burning, spinning cacophony on the virtual Playa.

BURN2 Burnal Equinox 2014, press release

Press Release 

OPENS MARCH 28TH 12PM SLT

Join us from March 28th-30th in Second Life for a totally different playa experience!

At a time far into our future, the earth has been devastated by a multitude of scourges: harsh climate change, pollution, famine, and war. The playa is one of the last inhabitable places on earth, but toxic fumes cover the ground and rise to 100 meters. The only safe living environment is above the toxic gas at ground levels as the playa’s winds help purify the air at this altitude. Passing through this toxic ground zone is possible, but long term exposure can be fatal.

One redeeming factor of the toxin is that when it is captured, placed into a balloon and mixed with the correct proportion of playa dust, it takes on the form of a very powerful, lighter-than-air gas.  A single five-meter balloon can lift thousands of pounds into the air.

The gaseous concoction has been fondly named Fairy Dust. Modern manufacturing no longer exists. Everyday items are scavenged from the remains of abandoned buildings.  Humans have learned to survive by creating with their own hands. They build platforms supported by balloons filled with Fairy Dust. These floating platforms are the hosts for a new civilization above the ground.  The citizens of this floating city commute by building lighter than air vehicles. They are powered by whatever means can be found and lifted into the air by balloons filled with the Fairy Dust.

Every Spring the residents of this community celebrate a renewal of life. Balloons have been the savior of this city. Residents design and decorate their lifting balloons as part of the Equinox celebration. This tradition has been carried down from their ancestors from when the earth was plentiful. They celebrate this event in hopes that the earth will renew itself. They celebrate the clean air that still exists high in the clouds. They celebrate their existence on earth, as different as it might be from their ancestors. They are ALIVE!

Become a citizen of this Playa City in the Sky and celebrate Burnal Equinox by creating a build on one of our 32x32x40 floating platforms!

 Please read the Builders Guidelines and then submit an application that will be entered into the lottery for selection for the event.
