BURN2’s annual Big Burn themed “Da Vinci’s Workshop” is set to open with the Lamplighters leading a procession onto the playa at 10:00am SLT. We will welcome everyone to the event and follow a route around the playa, from the Welcome Area and ending at the Lamplighters Village. This will also be the first of the twice-daily processions the Lamplighters will lead; however all other processions will start from the Lamplighters Village.
The Lamplighters procession schedule will be daily at 12:00pm SLT and 6:00pm SLT (except for Saturday the 15th, when we start at 10am instead of 12pm) from the 15th through the 21st of October. The 22nd and 23rd are Burn days, and for those our processions will be at 11am and 5pm – we’ll be treated to performances by the Fire Dancers at each of those, just before the Burns.
So that’s our schedule. Lucy our trusty truck will be with us, taking us around the playa on Press Day, and she will be parked near the Village throughout the week of the Burn. All Lamplighters are urged, invited, delightedly coaxed to come and join us at any or all of our processions. The more the merrier, with a few surprises thrown in!
Now, about Press Day – that is Friday, the 14th of October! Lamplighters, we have Lucy to drive us onto the playa and welcome the press onto the Playa. There are two Press Day sessions when the playa will be open to press. We want you there! Come in your robes at just before 12:00pm SLT, or just before 7:00pm SLT, to join us in the ride-on. Our trusty old girl Lucy is ready to take onto the playa and on to the Village!
