Drex's Road Diary: Burning Man 2016

2016 was my tenth Burning Man! I decided to commemorate the occasion by showing you guys just a little bit of the experience that I had out on Playa, including some great info on my camp, footage from Center Camp, the awesome fire circles that happened throughout the week at the sound camps, Burn Night, and much more!

Plus my favorite 2016 memory: flying above Black Rock City in a plane! :D

Fire and Flow Festivals

The Flow Arts are a hobby that most people find to be utterly intoxicating and love to immerse themselves in. One of the ways we explore this art is through weekend-long retreats that happen all over the world, called flow or fire festivals and they represent an important opportunity to connect with a wider community, learn new skills or tools, and contribute to the wider flow arts world.

Flow Festival Life Hacks

Fire Festival season is upon us! Only a few years ago there were merely five events for Flow Artists to attend in the United States. Last year, there were close to fifty!

Festivals are a popular way to connect with other artists, meet your favorite YouTube or Instagram stars, and connect deeply with your artform for the weekend. I’ve traveled to a LOT of festivals in my day and I’d like to share a few of my lessons learned with you guys.

Drex spins fire at Hookahdome -- Burning Man 2010

After the temple burn at Burning Man 2010, a bunch of the firespinners on the playa congregated at Hookahdome for one last firejam. Here I am doing what I think was actually my last spin of the week and personally I think the exhaustion is showing a bit. I'm glad I got a spin on video, though--enjoy!
