The Namibian Burn, 'NamBurn' or 'Burning Nam' as it is affectionately called is a Burning Man-inspired gathering of our Burner tribe in Namibia.
We follow the Burning Man Principles, which were crafted not as a dictate of how people should behave and act, but as a reflection of our global Burn community's ethos, spirit and culture.
Our Burner spirit, ethos and culture is reflected through the Principles, in our involvement in uplifting and supporting our fellow Burners and local communities, and how we as Burners approached and live our 'default-world' lifes.
The Community comes first as they are the heart and soul of the 'Burn'.
Respect yourself, respect the diversity in your fellow humans, respect the gift of labour, respect Nature and this Earth we live on.
On Request: Under 18 Burn fee available for parents and legal guardians on request.
Everyone is invited to work. Everyone is invited to play. This is not a glamping thing, plug and play or trance festival for profit, it is a Burners Burn.
Watch this space and the Namibian Burners Facebook page for details.

All art pieces must be built on a standard size pallet or on a comparable size base.
Pallet Size: roughly 1.2 m x 1.2 m or smaller. It should be no larger than a standard size pallet.
The pieces will have to be lifted using 2 strong poles slid through the pallet then lifted onto the burn-pit. Similar to a forklift, but using poles instead.
Art Height Maximum: Up to 8 feet (2 m) tall. It can be smaller though.
Materials: These small art pieces are to be made out of wood or safe burnable materials that do not create lots of sparks. Pallet wood works perfect.
Weight: since the piece & pallet will be picked up using poles, we ask that you be mindful about how heavy your piece is.
All projects must be on site by 16H00 on second afternoon. The community would love to have the time to see and appreciate your art.
There is no limit to how many projects we can burn, so BRING ON your burning creations!!
