A derogatory term for the people who attend the Burning Man event. It mainly refers to the cliquish almost cult-like aspect of the event itself. The event is supposed to be about freedom of expression and acceptance of all. Sadly to many "participants" of the event this means "We accept everybody as long as you are just like us! This is mostly observed on social websites like The Burning Man Corporations own website "e-playa" or on sites like Tribe.net where cliques form tribes with names like "burning man a**holier than thou" to attack anybody outside of their cliques. .

"I asked a simple question on Tribe.net but was attacked by the so-called "Burners" because I was not a member of their little clique

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."

"Joe went to New Orleans to help rebuild with the Burners Without Borders."
