Our doorway to Burns and Burners around the World. This information is derived from a range of sources. CAUTION ! Please check the dates and location of events PRIOR to booking tickets or making travel arrangements! Events may be cancelled without notice. Tickets at many events are limited, and in the large events 'go fast'. We can tell you if the Official Online Ticket and/or Gate Ticket sales are 'closed', but we can't say for certain whether they are still open - tickets might sell out at any time. Some Burns maintain an Official re-sale forum. You can also check an Event's facebook page for person to person ticket resale/transfer offers - note though that some Burn tickets are non-transferrable. All information on this page is included on a 'best efforts' basis and is presented without any warranty or guarantee of accuracy or completeness.

Burn and Burn-Related Events Worldwide

The 'working definition' used here is that a Burn is an event that takes place in a non-commodified environment and with participants making a commitment to the Ten Principles. Events which involve an element of fund raising, or invite public participation (without requiring a commitment to the Ten Principles), or which include commercial vendors or sponsorship are not Burns, but might be still be included here because they are associated with an existing Burner community. Nothing on this page indicates, or should be taken to indicate, whether an event has been (or has not been) officially endorsed or recognized by Burning Man LLC.

Note that some of these columns are sortable - simply click on the heading on the relevant column. To sort on two columns, click on the first heading, and shift-click on the second. Sorting might not work, however, when accessing this Wiki in mobile phone mode. Full information on each Burn might (eventually) be found on the Wiki pages accessible by clicking on the Burn name - mostly I recommend having a look at their website and facebook pages.

Regarding COVID situation. The Burning Wiki has always sought to bring our readers the most up to date and accurate information about Burn related events. As the COVID-19 situation unfolds we have seen an unprecedented number of changes to our Event Calendar in a very short time. In each case we have tried to give you a link to an official statement from the event organisers. More than ever, please check with the original event websites before committing to any travel or other arrangements. A note about terminology. 'Event Confirmed' means the event has dates for 2021 (but there is no guarantee it will go ahead). 'Event Cancelled' means that there is a statement from the organisers to that effect (although it is unlikely, there is no guarantee the decision might not be reversed). 'Event Planned' means that the organisers have stated an intention to hold the event, but have indicated that this is yet to be confirmed. Just for now the original scheduled dates for these events are being left 'as was.' All event dates are currently being reviewed.

Burner Groups Worldwide

Most - but not all - Burner groups identify with specific cities, States or Nations. We have also included Burner Groups that reflect special interests. If you are looking for a burner group associated with a particular Burn, look at the 'Connect' column in the list of Burns (above).

Note that some of these columns are sortable - simply click on the heading on the relevant column. To sort on two columns, click on the first heading, and shift-click on the second. Sorting might not work, however, when accessing this Wiki in mobile phone mode.

How do we keep this information up to date?

This list was derived in the first instance from the WIKIPEDIA page listing regional Burns. As at September 2017 that list was out of date and incomplete. So what did we do?

1. We revisited all of the links in the WIKIPEDIA list and updated details from the websites and facebook pages. We are in the process of setting up automatic monitoring of those websites to detect and report upon any changes appearing on them. Why didn't we just update the Wikipedia entry? Because it won't allow links to facebook pages and groups which we think (despite what we think of facebook) is an essential feature for worldwide burners looking to connect with burn communities.
2. We consulted other lists and articles. Some were less complete than others - that's not a criticism, as our own list is also certainly not complete. Huge credit and and thanks are due to those who have built and continue to maintain these lists. The pages and lists include:

3. We ran searches in Google and in facebook for the a country name and the word combinations, "regional burn" and "burn decompression".

Since then we keep up to date using a range of methods.

1. We have joined Burning community facebook groups around the world in order to keep abreast of burn event dates each year (and ticketing information). We're grateful to those community groups for welcoming us into their spaces. Some Burner groups keep track of Burns in (and outside) their Regions, including the highly recommended and very current list from Burners from Belgium.
2. Every couple of days we sweep through all the website pages and facebook groups of those Burns for which we don't have definitive information.
3. We keep an eye on Thomas Tighe's Spreadsheet of Events, in our view the only other reliable list of burns worldwide. It's important to note that the Burningwiki and Thomas Tighe independently verify the dates and details of events using original sources.
