Burning Man Founders Admit The Festival Has Jumped The Shark But Thatâ€™s Okay
Janill Gilbert stashed this in Burning Man/Black Rock
Burning Man has jumped the shark, at least in the sense that it is now much different than the way it started and how itâ€™s perceived, according to Dubois. But she says thatâ€™s not necessarily a bad thing, â€ťChange is inevitable. Our world keeps changing and our event is going to keep changing because our world is changing.â€ť She then joked that Burning Man is actually different every year.
Burning Man now has cell service. Four towers were set up around Black Rock City this year so that those with Verizon or AT&T can sends texts and call friends from one end of camp to the otherâ€¦at least most of the time. Some camps also carry in their own Wi-Fi, but thatâ€™s mostly available for those just within that camp.
