Died the founder of the Burning Man festival Larry Harvey

The co-founder of Burning Man died at 8:24 am this morning.

Burning Man is now a revered weeklong annual event that takes place in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada, north of Reno, but there is no firm consensus on whether it is a spiritual retreat, performance art, a music festival, a construction project or just an excuse to party in the middle of scorching heat and dust storms. "He was always a passionate advocate for our culture and principles that emanate from the Burning Man experience in the Black Rock Desert", Goodell wrote on the website.

"We resolutely held out for a miracle", wrote Burning Man Project CEO Marian Goodell in the "Burning Man Journal". If there was anyone tenacious, strong-willed and stubborn enough to come back from this challenge, it was Larry. Tens of thousands of free-spirited revelers become part of the week-long celebration. In 1990, it moved to the remote Nevada desert and began to grow rapidly. On the gathering's penultimate day, the giant effigy - or Man as it is known - is set ablaze during a raucous, joyful celebration.

"Both Burning Man and the internet make it possible to regather the tribe of mankind", he told The New York Times in 1997.

Our founder, friend, and original instigator, Larry Harvey has passed away. "And he said, 'Can you say that again?' And I did and we did it".

However, all-rounder Ben Stokes, who was bought for a whopping Rs 12.5 crore, has failed to fire till now. The reward for his persistence were the wickets of Raina and MS Dhoni in successive overs.

"I called a friend and said, "Let's go to the beach and burn a man", he told the website Green Living".

Sometimes the event would get out of hand. Hence the name Burning Man. In 1996, a man was killed when his motorcycle and a van carrying festival-goers collided.

It wasn't until afterward, Harvey recalled, that he had the epiphany that led to Burning Man. In 2014, he transitioned Burning Man from private ownership to a nonprofit organization with 70 employees and a budget of $30 million, according to the AP.

Mr Harvey, who had the title Chief Philosophical Officer, spoke to the BBC in 2016 about how the festival came to be.

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".
