Beloved, Tidewater, OR Thu Aug 8 (Aug 9-12)
SILVER  Beloved
Ten months later, I’m still wearing my wristband from Beloved.   Apply named for the open and beautiful human connections created there, it is still my favorite music festival. 
Grade A It’s a quality festival experience for about 2,000 people.
Music A- One beautifully decorated stage has a fine selection of live world beat and late night electronic music.
Location A- In a beautiful and verdant location near the central Oregon coast during the driest and warmest time of year.  Nights can be cool.
Organization A- Besides the fiasco of the shuttle system in 2010, they’ve got it together.
Pros: “Beloved” is beloved.  It’s a model for how to create a smaller music festival. 
Cons: It doesn’t have the high energy or the eye candy of Burning Man and LIB. 
It’s a long way from CA. When: mid August Where: Tidewater, OR near the coast

GOLD Burning Man
The good, the bad, the ugly, the amazing, the mind blowing, the life changing and the everything in between. 
Grade: A+   Burning Man is arguably the most amazing party on the planet
Music: C-  “wamp-wamp, wamp-wamp.”  It’s ironic that such a creative festival lacks musical diversity. 
Location: C+  Dust storms, high desert sun without shade.  The dry lake bed desert has its own beauty.
Organization: A Even with some ticket issues, they provide a good infrastructure for Nevada’s 5th largest city for a week.
Pros: It’s Burning Man!!
Cons:  The expensive ticket price is the just the tip of the iceberg for many, dust storms, heat, the collective chaos of 50,000+ people!
When: the week up through Labor Day weekend        Where: Black Rock Desert, NV

Burning Man Infographic
The history of Burning Man has always been a complex entity that has survived, nay, mutated over the years. And because of this, it has grown rapidly since its humble beginnings of a simple gathering on a beach.
The infographic poster shows only a small portion of what Burning Man is. By no means do mere numbers even begin to show a complete picture, as that is a history of stories, experiences, and individual tales.
I was recently interviewed by Jordan Salinger from the San Francisco Planning and Urban Research Association about this inforgraphic:
“For some it is a yearly spiritual revival providing an emotionally charged respite from reality; for others it simply means they are able to eat brunch without standing in line. The mark left by Burning Man on San Franciscans and this city is undoubtedly immense, but is hard to truly measure. The same can be said about the impact on Black Rock City, Burning Man’s yearly home, but this stunning infographic provides an all-encompassing perspective on the event.” by: Burning Man
