Diplo shares clips of his many Burning Man sets
Although Burning Man has officially closed it’s gates on their 2018 gathering, many burners remain on the playa guided by their “leave no trace” principle. The teardown process of the 70,000+ person event is no doubt a massive undertaking. While some attendees stay on the grounds for up to the entire month of September, most burners have returned home safely, posting pictures recounting their transformational weekend.
Not the least of which is Diplo, whose been an avid burner for some years now. The world famous producer, whose most recent LSD supergroup project has been taking up much of his time, still makes time to return to Black Rock Desert every year. Diplo’s yearly contribution to the temporary utopia is his deliverance of more underground, avant garde sets — something many won’t likely see under his more mainstream moniker.
Diplo explains his love of Burning Man rests in the comfort that he doesn’t have to be so commercially appealing all the time: “[A]t BM I get to play records for the first time bring back old records. Improvise… connect with old friends find new energy…do amazing back to back sets.”
He went on to post ten video clips of his sets, including his b2b with Flume, as well as thank the many camps that would host him over the weekend, including Robot Heart, the Church, No Name Camp, Camp Question Mark, Camp Jou Jou, and more.
