API LIBRARY

The APIs provided here programmatically publish data from official Burning Man sources. Additional API data may be added over time, based upon the availability of data, programming resources and originating sources. Data regarding Black Rock City camp placement will only be released once Burning Man begins, because camp locations and boundaries are changing up to the event opening time. Some settling of contents may and will occur. Participant provided data is made available only when the original contributor has explicitly or implicitly opted to have their information published publicly or contributed specifically for community innovation. For any questions regarding your privacy, review the Burning Man Privacy Policy found at the bottom of every page on this website. Please review our Developer Guidelines to familiarize yourself with the appropriate use of published data.

Please note, datasets will not be updated to include the current year's geo-locational data until the event opens. In the interim, we suggest using historical data.
