The SPIRIT Train - Donations

Sun Apr 28, 00:00 - Sun May 5, 17:00


As the hovering mist settles over the tracks the level-crossing bell rings out with an intensely, deep sound .... in the distance a pale gleam, the howl of a wolf and the constant throb of the heart ... beating, building up, growing louder & louder.


The SPIRIT Train is eager to make a return to the planes of Tankwa Town (Afrikaburn, 2019) and you can play a pivotal role in this process. In fact, without YOU we cannot do it alone.

After 3 years in succession at Afrikaburn (and one year in hibernation) the crew and friends of The SPIRIT Train are once again back to the drawing board - hammer & nail - to improve and modify all functionalities on the mutant for his return to Afrikaburn, 2019.

We already have several visual & sensory upgrades that require funding for implementation - and our goal is to bring you an elevated experience each year.

Please have a look for yourself at itemized costs listed below:
