This year, Shannon Norrell is bringing the best of virtual reality and newest VR technology to Burning Man 2015 @ Black Rock City in beautiful Nevada desert!

 

Burning Man – Once In A Lifetime Experience

Burning Man is the world’s most fascinating and wildest gathering; I wouldn’t call it a party, because it is a combination of music festival, dance party, spiritual gathering, and art exhibition.

With more than 60,000 attendees each, to get the tickets, you have to try very very and very hard to get the tickets, you have to enter ticket lotteries to register.  Two years ago, we had 8 computers on-board to secure our Burning Man tickets, and we were extremely lucky!

 

 

Anything goes in Burning Man, the experience is mind blowing. A week of madness and spiritual journey, whatever you are looking for or seek, it will rock your boat!

It’s all about peace, love, unity and respect. However, there are also strict rules when attending the event, to many, Burning Man is spiritual and symbolized many beautiful things in life. One of the most famous rules when attending Burning Man is not leaving anything behind, no rubbish, no trash and no human waste of any kind.
