You are pretty ignorant on the topic if you think there is no music lol. I just got back from the Playa and not only did I personally perform on 4
stages, but there were HUNDREDS of sound camps out there (funk, punk, house, trance, rock, jazz, dubstep, glitch hop, live bands and on and on and
on). So you may want to "look into it" a bit more before spewing falsehoods about an event you clearly know nothing about.
Also nothing to buy? Do you even know the reason money isn't used at BRC? Consider the concept of a "gift economy" where no money is accepted
(aside from purchasing ice and coffee at Center Camp) as everything is...wait for it...wait for it....FREE once you are inside. That goes for alcohol
at the numerous bars (hundreds of them) spread out all over the city, food of all kinds, music events everywhere, clothes from those that feel like
granting a gift to you, artwork you may receive, rides on art cars that will blow your mind in their awesomeness (pirate ships 4 stories tall, fire
spitting octopus', busses that look like sharks, UFO's etc...) and so much more. You thinking money is important for an event is hysterical. Why
spend more on random stuff when you can just get it handed to you?
And yes Glastonbury looks awesome I agree 100%, but these are 2 entirely different events and really not comparable.
Burning Man has everything that you listed and much more, well not the head count that Glastonbury had, but everything else is there in large form. I
seriously can't stop laughing about your lack of knowledge yet very "informed" stance on it. Get your head out of the sand...or actually maybe next
year go dip your head in it out in BRC. Cost is more than reasonable, I got Tier 1 tickets for 210 USD each. That's about 200 dollars less than the
Glastonbury tickets not to mention airfare to get over there in the UK.......so by my math BM is absolutely worth it in comparison.
Cheers and maybe i'll see you out in the dust one day.
