If you have suggestions about how to make the app better, I would love to hear them.  The majority of the enhancements and upgrades in this version were suggested by the burningman community.

I hope you find the app useful, it's my gift to BRC.

While the Burning Man organization provides me access to the festival data, and has supported this app since 2010, the app is a private effort and is not produced nor endorsed by the Burning Man festival.

What’s New

Version 2020.1

The first release for 2020. None of the 2020 data is available yet, but we are working on new capabilities and bug fixes. This version fixes an issue that could cause the 2019 app to crash, while the system that tracks Likes is down for maintenance.

Every Year

I love this app. It is a must have every year. I go through all the events before getting to Burning Man, that way I only use the app on airplane mode and have everything I might want to check out saved. Also the checklist is wonderful to use as well! Thank you for all your hard work each year.

Amazingly useful and well designed

Can’t say enough good things about Time To Burn. The designers are dedicated to creating and maintaining a highly user friendly, attractive, and glitch-free app. They should be commended for their attention to detail and their responsiveness when app changes are necessary or could improve functionality.
