This year, festival goers won’t be gathering in Tankwa Town but that doesn’t mean that you can’t connect and express your interpretation for the culture.

Citizens of Tankwa Town present HomeBurn!


HomeBurn will be a central hub that pulls live streams into one platform, sharing & showing the talents and activities of AfrikaBurn community. It’s an experiment – and you’re invited to make it happen.


The days that would have been the peak of our Tankwa Town week: Saturday May 2nd and Sunday May 3rd (and they’ll also be sharing community contributions outside the scheduled period).


The experience will see various other streams from members of the community plugged into a central HomeBurn platform. The streams will be generated by folks at home, and watched by you, at home. So, HomeBurn – and like Tankwa Town, it will feature a wide range of activities.

So far, a range of artists have volunteered art-related activities such as a range of actual mini-burns taking place at their homes, and this includes both a Clan Burn on the Saturday night and a Temple Burn on the Sunday (each at 20:00, just like in the Tankwa) – and they will be discussing further art-related activities with the team. Even they don’t know what could happen.

As far as Theme Camps go, it’s completely wide open as to what could be contributed: talks and discussions, Show & Tell, Maker culture, Live music – all of these are the kind of thing they’d like to pull into a schedule over the dates of the broadcast.

And music? Hell yes – they are happy to report that many music makers are gathering to add streams to the mix on the 2 days of HomeBurn – and you’re welcome to add yours.

Got an activity to add? Bring and come – use the Register option, chat and set it up >>


Will it be experimental, unpredictable and loads of fun, like the thing in the desert that we do together?

Probably – if you’re involved!
