Burning Man — the annual music and arts festival drawing nearly 100,000 attendees in the Nevada desert — was held virtually last week because of the coronavirus pandemic.


Nonetheless, people still gathered over Labor Day weekend to celebrate Burning Man in-person at its usual location in the desert and on beaches in San Francisco.


A 1,000-person gathering in San Francisco which violated social-distancing guidelines led Mayor London Breed to call attendees "reckless" and "selfish" on Twitter.

The coronavirus pandemic led 2020's Burning Man, planned for the week leading up to Labor Day, to go virtual for the first time in 30 years. But this didn't stop thousands of fans from holding their own makeshift festivals.


Despite social distancing guidelines and restrictions on in-person gatherings, crowds of Burning Man's most avid fans were spotted celebrating the festival on beaches in San Francisco and in the Nevada desert, where the event's Black Rock City fairground customarily sets up each year.


Videos on social media capturing the illegal gatherings — including one Saturday on San Francisco's Ocean Beach with over 1,000 people reported — led to fierce criticism of attendees' disregard of the pandemic. Other photos showed similar gatherings with music and campfires on San Francisco's Baker Beach, as well as cars and RVs camped out in the Nevada desert.


Joining in on the condemnation was San Francisco Mayor London Breed, who took to Twitter to call attendees "reckless" and "selfish" for crowding the city's beaches.
