The non-profit that organizes Burning Man has purchased 3,800 acres of land in northwestern Nevada with the intention of establishing a permanent settlement. The group was vague on specific plans for the land, which is known as Fly Ranch, but expressed a hope that it could be a year-round example of the same ethos that drives the yearly festival at Black Rock City. The land cost $6.5 million, which was raised from anonymous donors specifically for the purchase.
“Fly Ranch is a much smaller space [than Black Rock City], but with potential year-round access, it offers the gift of time,” the group said in a statement. “Eventually we’ll be able to create more opportunities spread out throughout the year.”
