Every year, around the summer solstice, the Burning Man 10 principles - and the culture – is brought for a week into the permanent city of Aarhus in Denmark. The aim is to interact with all that is Aarhus; the people, the mindsets, the rules, the urban spaces, the buildings, the private homes, the municipality, the organizations, the dreams, the visions - and create transformative experiences together.

The Burning Wiki Logo
  • We have a new Burning Wiki logo, up in the top left of this Front Page. It's a combination of James Wickhams pictograms for 'Communal Effort' and 'Participation'. James - who holds a Creative Commons right in respect of the images - actually did the artwork for us. Our feeling is that this Logo not only reflects the combination of the two Principles most aligned with this Wiki, but is also symbolic of the energy we hope it creates.


  • There's no point knowing WHEN an event is if you missed out on the chance to sign up to gain entry to it. So we've started including 'Invitation Status' information on our Burns & Burners Worldwide page. It is now a sortable column. While every effort is made to keep this information up to date, always check back with the events website or facebook page.



  • The Burning Wiki now has a facebook page. It is the easiest way to communicate with us, and to pick up what's been happening on the Wiki. We are editing information here every day, and adding major components in the Policy area currently. The Burning Wiki facebook page is also a venue to highlight some of the interesting and downright quirky information we come across as we continue our research across the worldwide Burns community.


The Burning Wiki is on Facebook. If you need to contact us, or want to have Burning Wiki updates in your news feed this is the place to go.

Contribute to the Burning Wiki

Burning Wiki is similar to, but separate from Wikipedia. Like all Wikis it's a place where all visitors are encouraged to add knowledge, and like all Burn Communities it's a Do-ocracy. One of the quickest ways to getting started creating or editing your own pages is to look at what others have done. To see the code behind each page, select 'Edit Source' once you open a page that you'd like to copy. See Help:Getting started for further information, a quick introduction to wikis, and links to resources to help you.

Step One: Create a Burner Account

Having a registered Burner Account in the Burning Wiki is a good first step. You can create a Playa Name and use that, and even a Burner Profile page for yourself. You can edit this Wiki without a Burner Account, but be warned, the Wiki will then display your computer's IP address as the 'author'. This isn't a good thing for people who like to keep their computer details private. Creating a Burner Account (at the moment) requires that you contact John Mack at burnersworld@gmail.com. Setup will usually happen within 24 hours.

Example Pages

Template Pages These are available to help you create structure and content in the Burning Wiki. Like all elements of the Burning Wiki you can improve them, and choose whether or not to use them
