Burning Man festival gates to open after first day wash out
The week long event takes place in Black Rock Desert, Nevada
The site for the week-long community and arts festival, which has run since 1986, was waterlogged according to a report from Resident Advisor, and roads to the area were closed down by local police, with festival attendees being turned away and re-directed to alternative campsites.
However, the festival has now tweeted that the site will re-open today (August 26).

The festival runs until September 1 and works on a gift, rather than cash based, economy. This year's theme is 'Caravansary'. Burning Man is streaming live at UStream.
