Q&A – Can You Explain Burning Man to Someone Who’s Only Been to Electric Forest? – Burning Man vs Electric Forest Part 1

This question came up a few months ago in a discussion regarding the Mechan-9 art piece at Electric Forest in Michigan. Mechan-9 was one of many pieces that was once found in the deep playa at Burning Man, but found it’s way to Sherwood Forest. This connection brought up questions regarding Burning Man, and how the experience compares to Electric Forest.

Q: I was looking at Burning Man info all day to see what I thought of checking it out next year. Kinda seems like Forest, except rather than relaxation and comfort, it’s about trying to have fun despite huge annoyances. The way they act on their subreddit didn’t really inspire me either. Anyone here done both?
