What was once a genuinely radical festival, based on principles of inclusion, decommodification, self-reliance and communal effort, Burning Man festival has changed somewhat.

With your average person in Burning Man's 2018 edition needing to shell out $1500 over the course of the art festival, 'escaping capitalism' in order to rub shoulders with spaced out Silicon Valley brogrammers and pseudo-bohemian billionaires doesn't come cheap for the opportunity to capture the most amazing pictures for your Instagram.

Of course, there is still a large core of regulars and those who attend in the true spirit of the Buring Man festival, the installations are pretty amazing, and the atmosphere is as intense as ever. Those that we mostly see however are the same old Instagram influencers, whose habit of taking similarly posed photos can make even an event like this seem like we've seen it all before.

Luckily, we here at Bored Panda have managed to compile a list of awesome Burning Man photos from this years event, scroll down below to check them out for yourself and let us know what you think in the comments!

For a second, I thought these were his shoes. I should go home and sleep, I guess.

I much prefer all the photos of JUST the installations without the models blocking them.

If she does not put sun block on it is going to be called Burning Lady

The rainbow has stairs on the sides so you could climb up and look around. At night it lights up and could be seen from anywhere in the playa.

These are gorgeous! How big? can I get one? If I paint my cello will that change the sound? genuine question I truly do not know. ( it is a cheapish cello, my first, and I am still paying it off, No Regrets)

So I'm thinking Burning Man is for female models in their early 20's with a liking towards spacey futuristic clothing made out of very small pieces of fabric.

These marionettes were badass! The creator changed out their outfits and also the heads to change their hair color and facial hair. The marionettes moved on pulleys with really long ropes.

Oh. So when they installed it the orb was a mirror, but several days in it got covered in dust. They forgot to coat the thing to avoid static electricity.

The rings changed color when you rode your bike through them at night

Epic selfie! I admit, if I was there I'd be taking ridiculous amounts of images as well. The setting and atmosphere is completely alluring to my aesthetic sensibilities- I just couldn't handle the gritty accommodations. Maybe when I was 20....alas those days are gone.

Looks like they wanted to go to the BDSM club but typed the wrong address in the GPS :)
