Burning Man supporters have said that proposed environmental impact proposals will cause more harm than good.
It comes after the federal government proposed new restrictions for the annual Nevada festival, including stepping up security searches and erecting new barriers around the festival site if it is successfully allowed to expand its current capacity to 100,000.
At a public meeting on Monday 7th April, supporters of the festival expressed concerns about the plans, with some stating that the agency was creating costly solutions for problems that don't exist.
In February, it was revealed that the festival - which returns to Black Rock across Sunday, 25th August to Monday, 2nd September - aims to cut luxury packages for this year's outing.
