Every year, tens of thousands of people convene in Black Rock Desert, Nevada, to create a “temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance.” The metropolis has been dubbed Black Rock City, and the event, as you’ve probably heard, is called Burning Man. If you’ve never attended the art festival, you might have your own ideas about what goes on.

Romantic piano lovers will also appreciate his cover of Chopin’s “Nocturne in E Flat Major, Op. 9, No. 2,” which he added to the video below.
