The Basics

24-30 April 2017
Tankwa, South Africa

AfrikaBurn is a Burning Man regional event in Tankwa, South Africa. The same themes of expression, creativity and community take hold of one of the most arid regions of South Africa, as a temporary city of art springs up for 7 days and nights.

The theme for 2017's edition will be 'Play' – unlocking the connective tissue that brings us together to relax, explore and "amplify life".


Though filled with music, AfrikaBurn follows the original Burning Man in not being, first and foremost, a music festival. Art, self-expression and inclusivity are the primary principles, meaning that music has an important role to play while not being the festival's focal point.
