LunarBurn is an annual three day cooperative, participation-based art and music festival and gathering in Northern California. This event is a celebration of community, unity, astronomy, and enlightenment. The name refers to the first gathering in 2012 when a solar eclipse occurred for the first time in California since 1994.[1] LunarBurn describes itself as an experiment in art, community, radical self-expression, and radical self-reliance. During LunarBurn’s first year there were four main stages and numerous renegade theme camp stages. The event hosted a variety of interactive theme camps, artists and workshops. It featured prominent art installations well known in the "burner" community. The 1MileClock installation was there – which holds the world’s records for the largest known clock as well as other installations later featured on the playa.

LunarBurn roots its core principles and values on the 10 Principles of Burning Man.[2] The mission of LunarBurn is to combine art, music, and community into an awe-inspiring annual event that attempts to unite people through the observation and celebration of celestial activities. We combine the spirituality of full moon gatherings with the essence of a community, participation-based event. LunarBurn roots its core principles and values on the 10 Principles of Burning Man.,[3] with a focus on three main values: Community, Cosmos, and Enlightenment!
