WATCH: An Insider Look at Burning Man

By now, many of your much-cooler friends have enjoyed the exodus from Burning Man and are now telling you all about the experience. This will continue for the next few weeks until they tire of stories or you tire of them.

Until then, catch up on what the burn features with this awesome video.

YouTube channel Insider offers this shining beacon of light we call a YouTube video for those who aren’t quite sure that all this burning guff is all about. According to the video, Burning Man – which just concluded its 2016 iteration this past weekend – is a chance to enjoy your fellow man or woman in a desert setting.

It’s kind of like what it would look like if Mad Max held an annual festival where he forgot all about the constant search for water and petrol and instead just enjoyed this crazy thing called life.  

If that looks like fun then you'll need to wait until next year, because the denizens of Black Rock City are back home and nursing the kind of hangover that comes with completely ditching your inhibitions for a week. The Burning Man website has everything you need to make 2017 the year that you do sand angels in the desert.

The website explains: “Once a year, tens of thousands of people gather in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert to create Black Rock City, a temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. In this crucible of creativity, all are welcome.”

Heck, perhaps next year that roaming fog of dust and cars coming back from the desert will include you.
