Burning Man attendees were freaking out about where to watch the 'Game of Thrones' finale

Daenerys Targaryen group Game of Thrones season seven Helen SloanHelen Sloan/HBO‘Game of Thrones’ fans desperately wanted to watch the season seven finale at Burning Man 2017.

Temperatures reached near triple-digits in Black Rock City, Nevada, on Monday — where the music and arts festival Burning Man is underway — but it didn’t stop winter from coming.

Attendees at Burning Man were treated to a screening of the “Game of Thrones” season seven finale the day after it aired, after festival-goers made pleas across the internet for a way to watch it.

The annual counterculture festival takes place in a remote swath of desert, where high-speed internet and cable TV are hard to come by.

Reddit user jaxdesign said their theme camp, Beans Beans the Musical Camp, projected the highly anticipated finale on a screen inside the camp, shortly after sundown on Monday. 

“It’s real. Beans beans the musical camp at 9:30 and E. our setup is really amazing, projector with huge screen, massive speakers. See you then,” jaxdesign posted earlier in the day.

“Game of Thrones” fans rejoiced. “Thank you for your service,” one Redditor wrote.

When burners first caught wind that the season finale fell on day three of Burning Man, some diehard fans of the show took to the internet to express their heartbreak.

“I hate to be this guy but I really don’t want the episode spoiled for me while I’m on the playa,” reddit user Cassaroll168 wrote a month before the event.

People who stayed behind while their friends went to Burning Man had a laugh.
