What a great event the Conception event of Burn2 turned out to be . The playa was busy 24/7 with djs, shows, and roaming the builds . I took some photos of some of the events.
CHANGHIGH SISTERS FIRESHOW of Light is always a huge draw .
A large crowd arrived to see the dancers perform . Yman Juran always brings her stage with her.
Another group that provides their own staging is Angelicus. The large contingent of singers arrived with their choir singing chorus music from all over the world . It was a perfect show for Sunday morning.
Lunna Kiyori (Lunna Darwinian) played her set of progressive trance before a large audience of admirers . She is a well known long time DJ in Second Life . Many other DJs were at the stage over the entire event.
Here are some of the creative installation that graced the playa . They will remain there until July 17 incase you missed the event. The entrance is here. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Burning%20Man-%20Deep%20Hole/172/34/24
Editor's note: Burn2's spinoff events have always been worth stopping by to me. With just one sim though, the place could be a bit packed, so I had to keep the lag in mind. What got my attention this year was that "The Man" was a woman. For the first time, the wooden effigy was a female shape. I went ahead and took a miniature wooden woman from the gift shop as a souvenir.
As someone taking part in both the Relay Weekend and the Second Life Birthday, and missing the excitement of both, Conception was a reminder that if you know where to look, the fun never stops for long here in Second Life. And for fans of the Burn, they can look forward to more fun when Burning Man takes place online later this summer, and of course the "Octoburn" in November.
