Nine Days til BURN2 Opens! READY?

The Lamplighter Elders have been busily checking lamps and oil, setting up the Village on the virtual Playa, and getting everything ready for the big event. When you come to the Gate, You won’t miss the Village – the Lamplighter statue with its familiar hat and lamps is easily seen from the Gate Road as you walk onto the Playa.

We now have a procession schedule! Lamplighters, read on and mark your calendars to join us at the following procession times. We’ll meet at the Lamplighter Village – the landmark will be given after BURN2 opens – and do our procession across the playa from south to north and arrive at the Temple to drum and dance til the sun comes up again! Here’s the schedule:

SAT 19 October 7:00pm SLT
SUN 20 October 7:00pm SLT
MON 21 October 7:00pm SLT
TUE 22 October 7:00pm SLT
WED 23 October 4:00pm SLT
THU 24 October 2:00am SLT

Saturday the 26th and Sunday the 27th, we will not do processoins. Instead, we will attend the Burns. We lead the dance as the Burns wind down and the sun makes its way back up into the sky.

The Temple will BURN on SUN 27 October 4:00am SLT, 12:00pm SLT and 8:00pm SLT.
