The pandemic has once again caused a beloved festival to not go up in flames.
Organizers of the Burning Man festival announced Tuesday that they were canceling their in-person event for the second straight year.
"The past 14 months have been a turbulent journey of evolution and change for every human on this planet," the Burning Man project announced on its official site.
The statement went on to explain that "All of us at Burning Man Project have been busy projecting all the possible scenarios that would allow us to bring our desert city back to life in 2021.
"Although here in the United States we may be feeling the weight lifting and the light at the end of the tunnel brightening, we are still in the pandemic, and the uncertainties that need to be resolved are impossible to resolve in the time we have," the Burning Man project announced.
As they did for the 2020 event, organizers are announcing a "Virtual Burning Man," which will begin on August 21.
