Approximately 70,000 attendees filled the camp out with large-scale art installations, creating a temporary city in the Black Rock Desert near Gerlach, Nevada.

 More than two-thirds of the people arrested were from California, but visitors from Spain, Italy and Mexico were also booked at the on-site jail.

Pershing County Sheriff Jerry Allen said marijuana was the most common drug found at Burning Man this year, followed by cocaine, ecstasy and acid.

Deputies also arrested a Utah man for attempted murder and a California man for the use of a deadly weapon.
