From the largest early arrivals to added streets, Burning Man 2010 is busting at the seams.

On Thursday morning at 8 a.m. an announcement came over one of the many Black Rock radio stations informing citizens that two new streets, London and Mumbai, have been added to the city to accommodate all of the people.

This year there were 20,000 early arrivals passes handed out, and usually half of them show up before the gates open, and by Monday afternoon 16,000 citizens were inside the city limits.

With new streets being added on Wednesday night and Thursday morning, this year may end up cracking the 50,000 mark.

That would be a first for the event.  Right now 2008's 49,599 holds the record for most participants.
