Are you ready to embark on a transformative journey of self-expression, creativity, and community? Look no further than AfrikaBurn 2024, the flagship event that brings together a diverse community of participants to co-create an awe-inspiring experience like no other. April 29 (Monday) – May 5 (Sunday)
Originating from a vision sparked at Burning Man in 2002, AfrikaBurn has evolved into a vibrant celebration of art, costume, performance, and much more. Set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Tankwa Karoo at Quaggafontein Farm in the Western Cape Province of South Africa, this annual gathering invites you to unleash your imagination and reinvent the world anew.
As a participant-created movement, AfrikaBurn is an experiment in inclusive community building, decommodification, creativity, self-reliance, and radical self-expression. It’s a chance to break free from the constraints of mainstream society and embrace the guiding principles that unite us in the pursuit of extraordinary experiences.
Every year, AfrikaBurn revolves around a unique theme that inspires and engages artists and the community. From Play to Mirage to The Elastic Kraal-Art Burning Test, these themes serve as a springboard for creative expression and experimentation, igniting a spark of innovation that permeates the entire event.
At the heart of AfrikaBurn lies the central effigy, akin to Burning Man’s ‘The Man,’ symbolizing the culmination of the year’s efforts and serving as an integral part of the immersive experience. The Clan History page showcases the stunning sculptures and the dedicated teams behind their creation, each weaving a tale of adventure and creativity.
Join fellow “burners” as they celebrate the rich history and evolution of AfrikaBurn, from its humble beginnings at Stonehenge Farm to its metamorphosis into an annual gathering that captivates the spirit and imagination of all who attend.
Don’t miss the chance to be part of this extraordinary community and witness the extraordinary art, culture, and connection that define AfrikaBurn. Mark your calendars for the end of April 2024 and prepare to embark on an unforgettable journey in the majestic Tankwa Karoo.
Join us as we reimagine the world and create an experience beyond the pale of mainstream society. AfrikaBurn 2024 awaits – are you ready to invent the world anew?
