This week I followed a link posted on twitter by Fenix https://twitter.com/FenixMuhindra a fellow student on the D.I.T. course http://virtualenvironmentsmodule.wordpress.com/ The link https://twitter.com/search?q=%23burn2&src=hash led me to to the festival http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Burning%20Man-%20Deep%20Hole/79/9/25
This years Burn 2 in second Life features over 100 builders/artists that have created the backdrop for a weeklong festival based on the real world festival of Burning man http://.www.burningman.com/ (modified October 30th 2012)
On arival there is a very useful information board, when clicked on it will give you some information and landmarks to navigate around the sims so you can get to see all there is.
ABOUT BURN2 2012 in second life
Builders and creators from all over the world have come together to create an impressive array of art installations, stages for performances, and theme camps. Six regions form this year’s desert Playa.
BURN2 is an extension of the Burning Man festival and community into the world of Second Life. It is an officially sanctioned Burning Man regional event, the only virtual world event out of more than 100 real world Regional groups, and the ONLY Regional to burn the Man.

Although it was suposed to finish on the 28th November 2012, you can still visit BURN2 as it has been extended! It now runs through Sunday, November 4!
Even though you can conviently ‘teleport’ from place to place, I think the best way to experience the place is on your ‘virtual’ legs (or hooves!) – It is too easy to miss something – every thing you see – no matter ow tiny has been placed with a purpose.
I have included a short film of my travels to burn2 – to say I have finished exploring is impossible! I only hope that I get time to see all it has to offer before it all vanishes! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=83Dwo2u-_-s
