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:
