Can’t Make It to ‘Burning Man’ This Year? Here’s How to Watch All the Action Live

Wish you were able to experience Burning Man but couldn't make it to the 2019 festival? Don't worry, there are a couple of ways you can follow all the action on the playa from the comfort of your own home. And if it makes you feel any better, you can take it all in without experiencing the desert heat. By tuning in to Burning Man's live webcast, you'll be able to watch coverage 24 hours a day until the conclusion of Burning Man 2019 on September 2.

This year Vimeo is providing the live technology, which means a crystal clear view of the Playa. As a fun added bonus, check out the temperature just above the timestamp in the lower right-hand corner of the screen to get an idea of what it must feel like in Black Rock City. To enhance the live viewing experience further, follow the #BMWebcast hashtag on Twitter. People are posting their screenshots and commentary so that you can see what's already been happening over the past few days.

If the webcast isn't good enough for you, you can get even wilder by signing up for the BMIR Phone Experiment. Just fill in your info and you'll receive a call from a Burner direct from Black Rock City. Run by Burning Man Information Radio (94.5 FM), this wacky initiative is a fun way to connect even if you weren't able to make it to Nevada.

Here's a look at some of the action that people have witnessed on the Burning Man 2019 webcast so far.
