Burning Man is like no other festival in the world. It happens for one week in August in Nevada's Black Rock desert and attracts in excess of 50,000 people, and is the absolute antithesis of the modern Glastonbury festival, there is no sponsorship, no headline acts and nothing for sale at Burning Man.
At Burning Man it’s the people that attend that provide the main bulk of entertainment. The Opulent Temple is one of the bigger stages at Burning Man and the cost of the sound system, lighting and trademark DJ booth (complete with flame thrower) is funded by likeminded party people holding a series of global events in the lead up to the event.
On 28th June, Ali B is organising a London fundraiser for 2008’s Opulent Temple stage, held at Cargo, and featuring Dylan Rhymes, Ali, Coburn, Icon, plus a very special guest, and more artists to be announced.
