Virtual Burning Man Multiverse

The Burning Man festival is well established in-person multi-arts festival held annually in the United States. The festival pivoted to an on-line event in response to Covid and ran during August 30th to September 6th, 2020. The part free & part pay-for access allowed visitors to experience the Burning Man festival online and in virtual spaces of eight ‘Recognized Universes’. Each of these areas were independently produced by volunteer members of the Burning Man community. The areas ranged from fully immersive destinations in virtual reality to 2D and 3D web-based social spaces.
