On August 28, Burning Man officially kicked off. The annual festival, located in Nevada's Black Rock Desert, is home to a pop-up community of over 70,000 people who wear crazy costumes, create elaborate art displays, and throw wild parties.

This year, the artist collective Big Imagination Foundation gutted a Boeing 747 jet, tricked it out with lights and lounges, and transported it over 500 miles to the desert.

The team raised over $86,000 on Indiegogo for the project, which will host art and dance events throughout the week. Check it out.

The Big Imagination team converted the 1985 Boeing 747 plane into a fantastical work of art, which will also serve as a performance space.

Their creation on wheels is the largest "art car" in Burning Man history. The festival has long welcomed these elaborate, decorated "art cars," though they have to be registered in advance.

The jet contains three separate pieces: the plane's front, middle, and lower fuselages. Once the the artists purchased the plane, they gutted it and cut off the tail and wings.
