A Drone View and photos have emerged at Social Media showing the 10-Hour Traffic Jam at Burning Man Straight Out of Mad Max
Hundreds of fans of the 'Burning Man' Festival in the US showed eternal patience with videos and images on social media showing endless queues of vehicles and drivers anxious to reach their final destination: the Nevada desert, where participants enjoy "hot parties".
What's more, no such better proof exists to contend against Burning Man than the mass EXODUS. In desert heat over 100 degrees. Vehicles, Trucks, RVs, and Airstreams held up in a 10-hour line of traffic to leave the playa. It is worth noting that the "Burning Man" festival is the largest outdoor festival in North America.
For the needs of the festival, a whole week is essentially building a utopia, "Black Rock City", a "temporary metropolis" also known as "playa", as the organizers call it, with towering sculptures reminiscent of the dystopian universe of " Mad Max". When the event's trademark, the huge wooden effigy, is ceremoniously burned, the town of "playa" disappears.
It presently flaunts 80,000 participants, and requires up over seven days in the Black Rock High Rock Desert of Nevada. The scene is an unforgiving no man's land with 50 degree temperature swings that move over 100, wild residue storms, and a penetrating, pounding sun.

I dont know why I take such delight in seeing US festivals turning to shit. I guess I am just an asshole sometimes 🤣— Spider Hoof (@spider_hoof) September 7, 2022

This is not a rave or an electro party but a combination of them that celebrates freedom of expression. From art to fashion and sexuality. "No one is famous or infamous, we are all equal", is underlined on the website of the event, which every year attracts the interest of ordinary mortals, but also celebrities and even the "cream of the crop" of Silicon Valley.
The Burning Man Festival was started by a group of artists from San Francisco in 1986 and in 1991 moved to the Nevada desert, where it is held every year. After an absence of two years, the festival returns fiercer...
Wicked scenes and favorite tunes at the Burning Man (track list)
These were the chaotic scenes as revellers leaving the Burning Man festival were stuck in eight-hour traffic jams in the Nevada desert.
The 80,000 festival-goers left the temporary city in Black Rock Desert after nine days of partying.
But their mass exodus resulted in huge traffic jams trailing back miles, with 15 lanes of traffic in the sweltering heat.
CJ Yu shared an
incredible aerial view of the scene on Twitter, saying: “Tho people love
to compare the #Burningman
aesthetic to Mad Max… the Exodus from camp is the most Mad Max I’ve
felt all week… 5 hours in, two more till I reach the exit gate.”

Burning Man 2023: Drone captures mass exodus from festival - Huge lines of cars:
The crowds were finally able to leave the Burning Man festival on Monday, after two days of suffering for thousands of people who took to the Nevada desert to party, only to end up... stuck in the mud.
Heavy rain had caused a...mudbath, with rainfall near the end of last week believed to be the heaviest since the festival began more than 30 years ago.
The bad weather caused the festival site to be filled with mud, and neither the arrival nor the departure of visitors was possible. Drone footage shows huge queues of people moving away from the festival.
