This is not a regular “festival,” it is not a passive experience where everything is planned, orchestrated, and prepackaged by the event producers, and attendees just come and enjoy the show. It is the exact opposite… the people who attend are active participants in every sense of the word. They create the city, the interaction, the art, the performance, and ultimately the “experience.”
The Southern Nevada Regional Gathering, or SNRG (pronounced “Synergy”), is a Burning Man regional event produced by the Las Vegas region. This is not a party. This is a community. A temporary city. A cultural movement based on 10 practical principles. We don’t book acts or provide entertainment. What happens here is up to you! There is no corporate sponsorship. You are entering a “decommodified” space that values who you are, not what you have. You are expected to collaborate, be inclusive, creative, connective, and clean up after yourself.
The temperatures during the event are expected to range from the 50s to the mid-90s. Luckily there are 2 ponds which you can, at your own risk, choose to swim in if you are not alone, tired, or intoxicated!***
*** THERE IS NO LIFE GUARD ON DUTY. SWIM AT YOUR OWN RISK. WATER HAS NOT BEEN TESTED FOR PARASITES
The Southern Nevada Regional Gathering, aka SNRG, will be held June 22-25 at the historic Spicer ranch in Beatty NV. The ranch comes with swimming holes, meadows, ample space for us, and a great area for a burn. We just reached an agreement today, so stand by for announcements and ticket sales. This regional can’t happen without you, so be prepared for signups for theme camps, art submissions, AND VOLUNTEERING!
