Burning Man Founder Larry Harvey Has Passed Away

Burning Man Founder Larry Harvey Has Passed Away

He created a giant wooden figure and burned it to the ground led to the famous, long-running counterculture celebration known as "Burning Man". He was always a passionate advocate for our culture and principles that emanate from the Burning Man experience in the Black Rock Desert.

He suffered a stroke earlier this month and passed away at home on Saturday morning, a statement on the organisation's website said. "We resolutely held out for a miracle", said Goodell.

Burning Man founder Larry Harvey died Saturday at the age of 70.

The Burning Man festival (literally "burning man") is in the desert black Rock (Nevada, USA), 1986.

Last year's celebration drew roughly 70,000 participants, who were free to bring or build their own arts projects, perform their own music, dress any way they liked (participants in "drag races" run on foot, dressed in drag) or go nude - and dance and chant "Burn the man" during the big finale. The idea behind Burning Man was to commemorate the beginning of the summer solstice. Harvey was also an activist, artist and philanthropist.

What does Browns, Baker Mayfield mean for Giants, Jets at NFL Draft?
If the Browns get their guy at No. 1 maybe they'd be willing to part ways with the No. 4 and send that pick to upstate NY . Cleveland's inclement weather can make gripping the ball a challenge, and therefore the bigger the hand , the better.

Larry was never one for labels.

Burning Man's announcement of Harvey's passing describes him as a someone who "didn't fit a mold" and "was 100% authentic to his core".

"The loss of his presence in our daily lives will be felt for years, but because of the spirit of who he is, we will never truly be without him", she added. One ticket to Burning Man can range anywhere from $425 to $1,200.

By the turn of the century the festival had transformed not only the surrounding towns and cities, it had caused a global art movement, as smaller satellite events under the Burning Man rubric sprang up around the globe. Last year, a man died after running into the burning flames and suffering burns on nearly his entire body.

In 2007, a prankster set fire to Burning Man four days early and it had to be frantically rebuilt while the man was charged with arson. In 1996, a man died after his motorcycle crashed into a van of festival-goers, and three others were injured in a separate incident involving a drunk driver, the AP reports.
