Few things can legitimately label themselves American artistic institutions, but the Burning Man festival – a week-long odyssey of music, dance and general extravaganza that has been held annually in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert since 1986 – is one of them. Hundreds of great acts (musical or otherwise) have performed under the baking desert over the years, and this year’s line-up is just as awesome as it has always been.
It’s so awesome, infact, that it includes a couple of artists who have previously worked with BAMM (which, as we’re sure we don’t need to tell you, is a definitive mark of quality). If you’re lucky enough to be attending the festival when it starts today, be sure to catch the electronic soundscapes of the Human Experience, who has previously thrilled BAMM with some exclusive performances:
A set from innovative percussive musical explorer Jamie Janover is also scheduled for the festival. Now, we’ve yet to release the exclusive performance BAMM.tv recorded with Jamie (patience, people, patience) but this clip of Jamie playing the Vogue theatre in Vancouver may give you some idea of what to expect:
