AfrikaBurn 2024 - CREATION

Mon Apr 29, 09:00 - Sun May 5, 09:00

Tankwa Town


Before time, when silence was yet unbroken, there was SPACE, an incalculable expanse of possibility that lay in patient anticipation for a spark of inception. From this void sprung a symphony of existence; a creative catalyst set the stage of Quaggafontein for the biggest bang there ever was … C R E A T I O N.

We invite you: the makers, the dreamers, the cosmic explorers, to journey with us to the sands of Quaggafontein, to the heart of Creation. From the majesty of larger-than-life art to the intimate whispers of a desert wind, every moment at AfrikaBurn has the potential for creation. Here, amidst the dust, let us ignite the spark of the cosmos that resides within each of us. Let us become the architects of future dreams, shaping the Karoo sands into temples of imagination and palaces of the mind.
