Summerisle Burn is inspired by the 10 Principles of Burning Man but is not affiliated with the Burning Man Project or the Burning Man Regional Network.
Summerisle Burn is a four day camping, arts, and culture event based on the principles of Burning Man. Summerisle is a collaborative gathering of community organized and fueled by volunteers. It is an interactive experience that is everything you choose to make it. You are at once the entertainer and the entertained.
As with all successful burn events, Summerisle embraces the Ten Principles, and models itself on their guidance. Thus, for example, we incorporate the principles of Leave No Trace (there are no trash cans, so you’ll have to pick up after yourself and pack your trash out with you), Decommodification (no buying or selling of private goods, and many choose to obscure or creatively alter any visible brands on trucks, tents and clothing), and Radical Self Reliance (there are no vendors, so you’ll have to bring enough food, water, and whatever else you need to survive for four days.)
