Drone Stories - We lit up the playa at Burning Man 2022

Our return to Black Rock City for Burning Man 2022 is one to forever remember. Together with our friends from DRIFT and armed to the teeth with 1.000 drones, we lit up the playa 15 times through 4 different show designs. Two words come to mind to describe our Burning Man 2022 drone light show: absolutely legendary! Missed it? Don't worry, we'd love to share all the ins and outs. 

Lighting up the Burning Man skies

We are very grateful that we could be a part of Burning Man this year, which took place from 28 August until 5 September. That we were able to contribute to the organization’s mission, to produce the annual event known as Burning Man and to guide, nurture and protect the more permanent community created by its culture, is a feat in itself, because this is easier said than done… 


As you might know, the festival takes place in the middle of the Nevada desert. We had to push the limits of technology once again by flying drone shows despite challenges such as extreme weather conditions (hallo sand storms!). With 15 different drone light shows flown over the entire event, we are proud to say we pulled it off!

The playa is a place were we can experiment with the magic we are creating. At this year's 2022 Burn we had a beautiful opportunity to express a message with technology that inspires people to come closer to each other and to the dream of unity. 

‘Space Invaders’ is an ode to the Japanese game that was released in 1978. With ‘Man vs. Machine’ we translated the interesting relationship between human beings and the machines that are becoming part of our lives.  Our ‘Endless Show’ is flown to inspire attendees to dream big. Nothing is impossible! The technique enabled us to fly a show for 2,5 hours. More to come soon… Our last show ‘Spirit of the Man’ is a special, iconic, custom designed Burning Man show. It is a translation of the man walking around the playa, burning down and rising from the ashes.

Our Burning Man 2022 drone show is one for the books. However, there are many other drone shows that we have flown over the last couple of years. Each and every one of them consists of purpose-driven stories that forever change your audience. Nothing is impossible. If you can dream it, we can create it!
