Burning Man co-founders Larry Harvey and Michael Mikel (aka Danger Ranger) join “This is Burning Man” author Brian Doherty for an evening exploring the past, present and future of Burning Man, July 24 at Z Space Theater in San Francisco.

Burning Man started with a handful of people on Baker Beach, and over 27 years has grown to become a cultural phenomenon that attracts 60,000 participants to the Nevada Desert each summer. Now organizers are expanding beyond the desert to ignite a cultural, technological and artistic evolution on a global scale.
