Burning Man reveals 2020 theme

Revellers are encouraged to explore "the quantum kaleidoscope of possibility"

The dust may have only just settled on this year's event, but Burning Man's organisers are already thinking ahead to 2020.

Next year's edition of the 80,000-capacity event will be centred around what organisers call "the Multiverse", following on from this year's 'Metamorphoses' theme.

"The 2020 Burning Man event theme explores the quantum kaleidoscope of possibility, the infinite realities of the multiverse, and our own superpositioning as actors and observers in the cosmic Cacophony of resonant strings," says a statement released by the festival.

"It’s an invitation to ponder the real, the surreal and the pataphysical, and a chance to encounter our alternate selves who may have followed, or are following, or will follow different decision-paths to divergent Black Rock City realities. Welcome to the Multiverse!"

Carl Cox last month shared a recording of his set from Burning Man 2019's Playground BRC. 

Over the summer, Burning Man was forced to fight mandatory regulations that the government tried to put in place for this year's event including government-sanctioned searches of all attendees.
