While local publications, as well as the New York Times (so late to the Bay Area game, as usual), have their say about Burning Man's descent into an elitist techie bacchanalia under the desert sun, we insist you watch the creation of Black Rock City live via the Burning Man 2014 Webcast. Not only will you see an entire city rise up in just seven days, but the music, care of 94.5 BMIR, will keep you grooving all week, right from the comfort of your home.

Say what you will about the annual festival on La Playa, you can't argue with the choice tunes from the DJs at Burning Man Radio. Really, it's what you should be listening to over the next week. BMIR livecam starts Saturday, August 23. Watch here:

As for those of you going to Burning Man, make sure to stay hydrated and stay safe. Oh, and be sure to save a hit of molly for Zuckerberg.
