Burns and transformational festivals are typically counterculture festivals that have a value system or ethos such as personal self-discovery, living healthy, indivudual expression (often through art), and social responsibility. Most of these events incorporate elements of traditional festivals such as music, film, art, lectures and food but are usually held in remote outdoor locations and involve a highly particpatory and inclusive expectation of attendees. Many of these festivals espouse a Leave No Trace Behind philosophy, including the most well known, Burning Man, held in Nevada's Black Rock desert annually, a pilgrimidge for 80,000+ "Burners". There are now offical and unoffical regional burns all over the world.
