Burning Man: Fire and Dust Draw 70,000 People to Nevada Desert
Participants travel across the playa during the annual Burning Man arts and music festival in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada on Aug. 31, 2017.
The first Burning Man took place on a San Francisco beach in 1986.
Held in Nevada since 1990 and known for art displays, dust storms and communal living, Burning Man is named for the large effigy burned during the festival.
"The Man" is engulfed in flames on Sept. 2.
