Intergalactic Art Cars From Burning Man Have Landed on Las Vegas Strip!

By WigWag Staff / Posted on June 23, 2019

Art cars are a staple at each year’s Burning Man. But, what were once just golf carts used to get festival-goers safely around the desert landscape have evolved into something magical.

Now, checking out the wild range of art cars is a highly-anticipated activity at Burning Man — these four-wheeled creations are many Burner’s favored form of artistic expression. It’s not uncommon to see fire-breathing dragons cross paths with a Game of Thrones-inspired mini-car when on the playa. But, thanks to Lyft, art cars finally had their day on the Las Vegas strip!

It’s the second time the ride-sharing company Lyft has partnered with Fired Up Management, which represents many of the art cars’ creators. Lyft came up with the festival concept, calling it “the perfect way to showcase innovative transportation,” as well as help support local art programs, said Lyft Nevada’s Kris Cuaresma-Primm in an interview with the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

While the parade took place on June 9th, you can still check out the video below to see the celebration. From cars decked with gleaming, glowing lights to fantastical beasts plucked from the wild imaginations of their creators, the mobile works of art shouldn’t be missed!
