A few months ago I attended Electric Forest, a 4-day music and arts festival held in Rothbury, Michigan. Electric Forest draws people from all over the country and the world. Sherwood Forest, the heart of the festival, is a one of a kind place… a forest sprinkled with tall trees perfect for hundreds of hammocks to be strung throughout. But the people are what make the event so great. Electric Forest rejuvenated me. It was an incredible experience, and I can’t wait to go back.
A short doc about an 81 year old man who attends Burning Man and has a transformative experience. Beautiful story. Some day I will go.
For those unfamiliar, from Wikipedia:
Burning Man is a week-long annual event that began in San Francisco's Baker Beach and migrated to the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada, in the United States. The event begins on the last Monday in August, and ends on the first Monday in September, which coincides with the AmericanLabor Day holiday. It takes its name from the ritual burning of a large wooden effigy, which is set alight on Saturday evening. The event is described as an experiment in community, art, radical self-expression, and radical self-reliance.
