Florida - South Florida

Regional Community

A Sunny Place for Shady Burners!

Today, South Florida is truly America's melting pot, and the local Burning Man community reflects this. We are stretched out among South Florida's sprawl, but we also do get together a lot, and we now have a regional Burn called The Love Burn.

Love Burn, Miami, FL Feb 12-16, 2015

South Florida’s Burning Man-inspired beachfront
camping event is coming February 12-16, 2015 and every Presidents' Day Weekend.

WHERE: Historic Virginia Key Beach, Miami, Florida, U.S.A.

MISSION: Our mission is to grow a happy, prosperous community that brings performance art, small to large scale interactive art, and great music while sharing the Ten Principles of Burning Man in South Florida.

THEME: The 2015 event theme is Superheros (and Villains). Get your costumes ready for a shenanigastic camping adventure that starts at the Greeters Gate. As you are greeted, you can choose to be a superhero or villain for the weekend. For those that are undecided, we will have a brain analysis EEG machine that will help determine your weekend role as a superhero or villain.

THE CHALLENGE: Each the of the 10 Principles of Burning Man will be placed in their own unique briefcase guarded by the superheroes. The villains will try to steal the briefcases filled with one of the ten principles during the event. When a duel between superheroes and villains happens, there will be challenges related to the principle presented in the briefcase. Whichever party wins the challenge gets a piece of wood from the Rangers to put onto the gigantic scale effigy. The scale effigy demonstrates the balance of power between the superheros and the villains.  The side with the most wood wins the 2015 burn.

Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood and Palm Beach each have dozens in their respective community, and each area works with the other in concert to create what we feel is a very cohesive community of mentally-uncohesive folks.

"Someone said, 'buy the ticket, take the ride'...I say, 'buy the ticket, pack for a few weeks, bring way too much but not enough, spend twice what you thought, screw the whole camp up by letting that girl and her tweaking boyfriend camp with you, see things up close that even dreams can't create , laugh till you cry, cry until you laugh, get stuck in Reno with a busted tranny, then find the busted tranny a flight home so you can be free of him, and when you return home, nothing's changed.
