Bobby Friction heads to Black Rock Desert in Nevada for Burning Man.

In the last of the current series of International Radio 1, Bobby Friction heads to Black Rock Desert in Nevada for Burning Man - one of the weirdest and most wonderful festivals on planet earth.

Follow Bobby as he goes on an 11 day journey into the desert, covering 22 thousand miles, only to reach a place where temperatures reach 40 degrees in the day, and sandstorms mean you can't see three feet in front of you.

And once there, there is nothing Bobby will not do to get into the spirit of the festival. He samples 150% proof moonshine and unsurprisingly ends up a little worse for wear. He hears why if you dance too hard at Burning Man you end up with Christmas toe - when your toe-nail falls off every Christmas. And he gets to watch bands called things like Boiled Eggs and Speaker-phone Underwear. But maybe the icing on the cake is witnessing 5000 naked ladies ride past his camp on bicycles.

Listen to the programme to hear one of the most bonkers things ever undertaken in the name of International Radio 1. And then check out the photos below for some of the evidence!
