Waking up and not smelling the coffee: Burning Man is back | World

Deep in the Nevada desert, thousands of hedonistic festivalgoers have defied a punishing heatwave to celebrate the first official Burning Man since the pandemic .

The nine-day event, beloved of Silicon Valley executives, is the largest outdoor arts festival in North America and draws a huge crowd of “Burners” seeking out the weird and the wonderful.

It all takes place in Black Rock City, a sprawling temporary settlement where temperatures were forecast to reach highs of 39C and strong winds have kicked up dust storms. Tents, caravans and other temporary structures are packed tightly around the effigy of the synonymous Burning Man, and there is a makeshift airport for the use of wealthy Burners, who in the past have included Elon Musk.

Among those exploring the weird and wonderful sights of the Burning Man festival were the model Cindy Crawford, 56, and her daughter Kaia Gerber, who turned 21
