Kiis FM shock jock Kyle Sandilands went to Burning Man this year, officially ruining any street cred the festival once had.
Burning Man started as a hippy, free-spirited festival but has increasingly become a playground for the rich and famous with names like Katy Perry and Jared Leto setting foot on the desert grounds.
It’s gotten so bad that it’s now the sort of place that people like Sandilands descend on.
Sandilands and his girlfriend Imogen Anthony took to Burning Man this year for what was no doubt just a day or even a couple of hours.
Anthony has flooded her Instagram with free-spirited pics from the desert featuring her booty-shaking in front of robotic animals and running topless beside a highway.
Sandilands appears in one picture dressed in goggles, with Anthony letting everyone know that they’d officially been accepted into a tribe.
“Great moment when we arrived, the ‘greeters’ asked if we were ‘Burning Man Virgins’ (which we obviously were) they the made us get out the RV and roll around on the ground in the dust,” she said.
It seems rather hard to believe that Kyle would willingly roll around in the dust just to be accepted into a “tribe”.
For the rest of their time there it seems he became Anthony’s camera man, as he doesn’t appear in any more Instagram posts. That or he got outta there as soon as they asked him to roll in dust.
This year, some traditional Burning Man attendees protested against rich and famous guests, vandalising White Ocean, a camp started by British DJ Paul Oakenfold and the son of a Russian billionaire that attracts many high-profile guests.
As the Telegraph reports, vandals flooded the camp and cut its power during a techno party.
Who knows what they would’ve done if they knew Kyle was on their hallowed grounds.
Sorry for the shit quality pic, but just letting you all know that we are officially part of this amazing #BurningMan tribe. Great moment when we arrived, the 'greeters' asked if we were 'Burning Man Virgins' (which we obviously were) they the made us get out the RV and roll around on the ground in the dust. They were very condescending of my cleanliness and how much we didn't know about what we were about to get ourselves into, but not everyone can go cold turkey on society and get straight on the BM train straight away. I mean, give it an hour or two. This isn't just a festival, this is its on cult. But I love it.
