Burns & Burners Worldwide

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.



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.

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 will (eventually) be found on the Wiki pages accessible by clicking on the Burn name.

Note that most of the Information Radio stations listed here are only broadcasting during the actual Burn they're associated with.

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 As at September 2017 that list was out of date and incomplete.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 have we done and what do we need to do to keep this list accurate?

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.

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. Again we are setting up automatic monitoring of the webpages those lists appear upon with a view to detecting and reporting any changes in those 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".

4. Readers of this Burning Wiki page are encouraged to add or correct details using their own knowledge of burn events.
