Continuing the discussion from Company that pampers rich people at Burning Man won't give up:
I know - technically, any other event is an alternative, as is not going.
I have never gone to the Burning Man festival for a number of reasons. The foremost reason is that I am on the east coast, so it is a lot of work for me to get to. But over the years, I don’t like what the event has become, Some might say that it is a victim of its own success. As I understand the intentions behind it, the festival was an anarchist gathering and temporary autonomous zone. But the amount of bureaucracy and money around it these days really seems to me more to undermine its original purpose.
So, I thought it might be nice to have a space for discussing other campouts, festivals, etc which place an emphasis upon autonomy and non-commercialism. The sorts of events which don’t involve expensive tickets, or the feds camping with you.
