Diplo, Chris Rock Escaped Burning Man Flood In A Fan’s Truck
Heavy rainfall interrupted the Burning Man festival on Friday night, and Diplo managed to escape the chaos in the back of a fan’s truck, along with Chris Rock. The DJ posted a video to Instagram on Saturday showing himself in the back of the pickup truck with Rock and other festival-goers. “A fan offered Chris Rock and I a ride out of Burning Man in the back of a pick up,” he wrote. “After walking 6 miles through the mud.”
But they were among the lucky ones. Tens of thousands of other attendees were left stranded in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada after a heavy rainstorm turned the entire area into thick and slippery mud. Festival-goers stuck at the site were ordered to conserve their food, water and fuel (and shelter in place) due to the emergency. Police are also investigating the death of at least one person.
