Look Inside the 2020 Virtual Burning Man Multiverse
In the midst of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, it's no longer a surprise when a music festival decides to host an online event. While many have opted for run-of-the-mill livestreams hosted on platforms like YouTube and Twitch, some organizers have devised clever ways to spice up the experience. Always one for both technological and artistic advancements, The Burning Man Project introduced a virtual Burn to give fans a way to connect and experience the event from the safety of their homes.
Users created avatars and were able to explore a virtual Black Rock City, traversing a digital recreation of the playa in full 3D. On the Burning Man website, organizers shared a video showing how to get involved with the online event.
