Burn In The Forest – July 10-13, 2014 Burning Man Regional Event

Burn In The Forest (BITF) is the Greater Vancouver Interactive Arts Society’s (GVIAS) annual summer event that takes place in the beautiful surroundings of the Squamish Valley, an hour’s drive north of Vancouver, British Columbia.

This Event is more about Music than Art. Lots of Dancing! Bring ear plugs to sleep! Stretched over a kilometre of riverbank and surrounded by towering evergreens, snow-covered peaks and picturesque waterfalls, hundreds of participants come together to create Temporary Autonomous Zone, inspired by the Ten Principles of Burning Man and the unique landscape that we have the privilege to call home for 4 days.

MAY 7th - Tier 1 Tickets Go On Sale This is important! This event sells out in less than an hour! Be Prepared! http://burnintheforest.com/



This is a Fabulous Event! Please UP Stroke if you plan to attend so we can move from Proposed to Planned!
