While some celebrities quietly attend the festival, others treat it as a media experience.  Movie star Susan Sarandon stayed in a celebrity camp at Burning Man in 2015.  Her visit was showcased in This Insider.

Elon Musk, Sergey Brin, and Mark Zuckerberg erect fancy luxury camps in advance, many others arrive to the playa with no plan and pitch their tents where they find space.

There is even a concierge service, to provide elite burners services and facilities above and beyond what mere attendees are offered.  See the website, Burners.me .

 

Google maps created the unofficial 2018 map of Burning man.

Among attendees in the past, Paris Hilton, Miley Cyrus, Diplo, Katy Perry, an assortment of Victoria’s secret models (Sara Sampaio goes every year), Leonardo DiCaprio, and many others.   Burning man requires some preparation,   and burners need to bring a weeks worth of food, bottled water, funky and practical clothes, Goggles, face masks (for dust storms), and items for giving and exchanging.  Diplo comes in a huge “Art Car”.   If you are not handy, you can buy Burning man outfits on Amazon and eBay.

Keep in mind that not all celebrities are “in character” when on their own time.   Some are accommodating to fans, others guard their privacy and shun the spotlight.   So be respectful, and if asking for a selfie or autograph, move on so your idol can have his or her privacy.
May you be fortunate to have wonderful encounters with your heroes of film and stage.

Do celebrities read every Tweet from people Tweeting @ them?

Yes and no. If tweets are a numbers game, no celebrity of note can possibly read all their tweets.
Many celebrities use human and automated assistants, and do personally answer some tweets (don’t count on it happening regularly, though).  It is not uncommon to find some people posing as celebrities and tweeting as them, but they are frequently removed from Twitter.

When the late Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, first tried internet chat rooms, there were already people posing as him and using his name.

This practice is not unique to Twitter;  many bad actors have made accounts in famous peoples names, sometimes in misguided adoration, or to pretend they have some connection to the targeted celebrity.  Legitimate websites have many issues with this, and celebrities who have not copyrighted their names can have legal issues with removing these frauds.  These bogus accounts frequently con people out of real money (Article from UK Daily Mail will open in new window).  This is a reason to be especially vigilant on the internet.

Many celebrities use their twitter accounts to broadcast their message, announce ticket sales, build their “Brand”, and endorse causes. Reading tens of thousands of twitter responses on a daily basis? I hope not….when would they have time to rehearse, or perform?
