The Burning Man‘s organization, a few weeks ago, announced a new update about the 2021 edition of the festival, located in the Black Rock Desert.
The announcement concerned the new edition theme, called “Terra Incognita.” This name means that “Burners” need to leave solitary confinement to reconnect each other, rediscover and reinvent themselves in a new unknown world. However, the organization learned that this is an inappropriate name. The wording “Terra Incognita” refers to American colonial history and human rights.
Therefore, to avoid biases, the theme’s name has been canceled and modified everywhere. The new name is “The Great Unknown.” The foundational ideas of the theme are always the same.
Moreover, by May, we will definitively know if the festival will take place. You can find any info about Burning Man and all the other 2021 festivals in the Ultimate Guide to 2021 Festivals by EDM Lab.
