Closure rumors

Carnival Of Mirrors asks three essential questions: within our media-saturated world, where products and people, consumption and communion morph into an endlessly diverting spectacle, who is the trickster, who is being tricked, and how might we discover who we really are?

Closure rumors

Post by Corvus » Wed Dec 31, 2014 5:35 am

A co-worker came up to me yesterday all excited about someone telling him that Burning Man had been cancelled for 2015. I laughed and said I hadn't heard a thing about it. "He said something about the guy sponsoring it pulling out," was the reply.

Again I laughed and said the event is "sponsored" by the attendees, to the tune of some 22-million dollars plus whatever they bring for their own camps.

So, are there any rumors floating around your location about BM's viability?

The DPW (the Drunk People Welding) used to go around early in the week with bullhorns announcing that this years event had been cancelled and to pack up and go home since way way back.

I heard 2002 was cancelled, and we have to do it again next year. If so, will they go back to the old pop cap and the old ticket prices?
