This year’s Burning Man once again takes place online with the Virtual Burn event and who will be present again is Alucina party, maintaining the same live format, but now even bigger: with an official stage to call yours and a breathtaking line-up with 7 DJs of the scene on Saturday (4 September) during Burn Week.
The festival is one of the largest electronic music festivals in the world and officially takes place in person annually in the United States in Black Rock City. Since 1986 it has maintained its concept of going beyond a simple music festival, and is also an experiment of art, community, self-expression and self-sufficiency. With open arms, they once again opened space for artists and producers from all over the world.
Alucina was born from the producer and Marketing Manager, Fernanda Destefane (Destefane Produções e We.Strategy) and the artist Gustavo Tavares (Tangerina Green), in order to foster the electronic scene not only in Brazil, but in the world, which fitted perfectly with the premiere of the party in live format at Burning Man Online last year. This time now, in addition to having an official stage within the platform, the line-up features Alexiz BcX, Beranger, Dynamick, Flow & Zeo, Phonix, Tangerina Green and T_Pazos.
