A term for someone who participates in the burner community, which is largely comprised of people who regularly participate in fire festivals, such as Burning Man, or any of the smaller local/regional events that Burning Man has inspired around the world. The term is not derisive, but is rather a term of endearment and self-identity across the burner community.

Burners usually refer to a fire festival as a "burn." Both "burner" and "burn" are derived from the common practice of creating, erecting and displaying a piece of "burnable art," or a "burnable art installation," at a fire festival. Ultimately, these art pieces are set afire and burned to ashes as an artistic experience for everyone present. Indeed, all burns climax with the informal but time-honored "ritual burning" of a large, wooden effigy and/or art edifice on the final (and/or penultimate) nights of the burn.
"Hey, I had no idea you were a burner!"

"Oh yah, I've been to the Playa a few times now, and a couple regional burns back east."

Plural of 'Burner'. A Burner is someone who has been to Burning Man and has enjoyed it. Burning Man is a week-long event over Labor Day weekend, this year (2007) attracting 47,000 participants. Hundreds of art projects abound (many involve fire), people do random acts of unusualness, there is no vending (gift economy) - it is indescribable. It attracts everybody from Silicon Valley billionaires to drugged-out 60's rejects. Most are middle class folks with a wild streak. Burners are self reliant, enjoy the unusual, have a giving spirit, and are just plain nice folks.
"The party will have a lot of Burners there."

"There are not a lot of Burners where I work."
