Important information for getting tickets

1. In order to purchase tickets to AfrikaBurn, you will need a Burner Bio. If you had one last year, you need to update it.
2. To register or update your Burner Bio, go the AfrikaBurn website here.
3. Each ticket you buy will require an ID or Passport number. If you attempt to use an ID or Passport number that is not yet linked to a Burner Bio, you will be unable to complete checkout.
4. New Burner Bio registrations will be disabled from 10am - 1pm (GMT +2) on Friday 4 November 2016. If you want to buy tickets in the general sale on that date, make sure to register your Burner Bio before then. Updating old Burner Bios will not be disabled.

Burner Bios and purchase links from previous years are not valid. If you have one, you need to update it.

Tickets are now sold out. CLICK HERE for the STEP program if you are still looking for tickets.


In it's 11th year, AfrikaBurn rises again from the dust from April 24th - 30th 2017! This time round, your creative fires are fulled by the call to engage with this year's theme: PLAY.  Learn more about it here

In order to buy tickets, you'll first need to create a Burner Bio. If you've created one in the past, you don't need to create a new one - but you do need to head to your Bio and update the details if necessary in order to make sure they're correct before you buy tickets. 

AfrikaBurn is the annual South African Burning Man regional event that takes place on Stonehenge Private Reserve in the Tankwa Karoo, Northern Cape Province of South Africa. Participating in the event is no small undertaking - you need to bring everything you'd need for the duration of your stay - and take it all back. 

It's not a music festival, and it's not a party. It's a temporary experiment in community, creativity and self reliance. For participants, a year’s worth of planning, anticipation, dreaming, building and creation comes together to create Tankwa Town - a temporary city formed from the imagination of its participants. 

If you've never been before, it's highly recommended that you read the event's Survival Guide
