Want to know how far Burning Man has come from its bizarro underground roots? Katy Perry attended Burning Man this year, and a video of her falling off her Segway went viral.
But that doesn't mean all the celebrity related stuff that happened at Burning Man 2015 was cheesy, this year Susan Sarandon honored her departed friend Timothy Leary by carrying and burning his ashes in an elaborate ceremony.
Sarandon had this to say about the Leary memorial:
When I went to Burning Man last time, that's when I thought I'd bring him back here...I think he'd be so happy. I think he would have loved the chaos (of Burning Man). He would have loved it, and all these people honoring him with LSD.
Even though the festival has become a bit more trendy and celeb friendly over the years Burning Man is still home to some of the most amazing art cars, sculptures and temporary structures with tons of artistic flair.

Burning Man may have been reduced to ashes, but he'll continue to rise each year like a freaky phoenix, as the festival continues to evolve into something more indescribable in the desert.
