Second Life— Burn2

Regional Community

Give us your tired, your poor, your house-bound, your transportation challenged— your huddled masses yearning for the playa. Burn2 is the International Regional that happens in the virtual world called Second Life, and though it might sound new to some people, we've been Burning the man there since 2003.

Burn2 is accessable 24/7 to anyone with a computer and internet connection! If you cant make it to an RL burn (that's "Real Life" in virtual-world jargon) you can probably make it to one of ours. The software is free to download, and access to the virtual Playa is free as well. When you teleport into virtual Gerlach, Nevada for the first time, many of you will feel instantly at home.

BURN2 hosts five main events yearly and a number of smaller events, get togethers, parties, trainings, and performances. Our big Burn event in October is an echo of Burning Man itself, with thousands attending throughout the week. Check the Calendar for more information.

Our Event Planning Table meetings are open to anyone. We usually meet Mondays at 7pm Pacific Time. 

To get started, just get a free account and an avatar and teleport into the virtual playa. Or get your feet wet and ask for help by joining our email discussion groups below. 

Join us to find amazing digital art, live performance, theme camps, DJs, poetry, Lamplighting. drumming, meetings, presentations and classes. This thriving Burning Man virtual community awaits your participation on our dust-free electronic playa!
