AfrikaBurn Decompression 2018

Sat May 26, 14:00 - Sun May 27, 02:00
Killarney Race Track


After a spectacular Working Title_____ that we all created together in the glorious Tankwa, it’s time to dust off and gather to share our experiences at this year’s Decom! 

What is it? Ah - just like Tankwa Town, it’s all created by YOU. 

This time round, we’re back at Killarney Race Track, which means loads of indoor and outdoor space for you, your creations and inclinations. So set some of that costume, art and decor aside - and bring and come! 

When: May 26th, 2pm - 2am 
Where: Killarney Race Track, Cape Town 


R150 Early Bird pre-sales (limited to 200 tickets) 
R200 pre-sales 
R250 on the door 
Kids: 14 years and younger: FREE! 
15 to 17 years: R100 (18 & over normal price as per early bird and general sales) 


As always, our Decom is an experiment where, just like Tankwa Town, you create the performance, the art, the sound and the experience. It's a space where you're able to bring along the thing you love to do, and do it. Got a mutant vehicle? Bring it along! Got a bike? Pimp it, and enter the Art Bike Race! Got costume? Wear it - and tell your friends to do the same - because we'll be having a Best Dressed Contest like last year. 

Sound stages? Live music? Food trucks? Artworks? Fire? DJ's? Midnight toasted cheeses? Stay tuned - as all the pieces fall into place we’ll be announcing more, so look out for updates. 


- Bars
- Food trucks
- Coat check, Lost & Found
- Car guards around venue for safe parking
- A wild pageant consisting of Tankwa Town's finest: you!

How does it work, and how can you get involved?

Got ideas, art, or an activity you want to add to the mix? Great - mail [email protected] to start chatting about how it can be plugged in.


Just like Tankwa Town, this event is co-created by all of us - and to make it happen takes a lot of hands on deck. So, if you have any skills and some time, you're more than welcome to step up and help in organising the many aspects that will see this mad community carnival take shape. 

If you'd like to step up, mail [email protected] and our team will field your interest and availability. 

We're looking forward to seeing & connecting with you again!
