Rainbow Tribe is a theme camp at Blazing Swan that encouraged radical self-expression through creative means such as body painting and body art. "Rainbow" refers to not only to the colourful practice of body painting the group enjoys, but also the spectrum of personalities and perspectives that form a conscious collective of burners.


Body painting and body art is the core interest and activity at Rainbow Tribe, which leads participants through a transformative experience of communal trust, towards various levels of ecstasy through radical self-expression.


Rainbow Tribe's pre-history includes a body painting theme camp named Beautifyre, brought to Modifyre's inaugural 2015 burn in Queensland.
