What is the AfrikaBurn Festival?

The festival takes place this year from 23 – 29 April, where people come together, create art, burn structures, dress up in creative costumes, celebrate, build crazy vehicles and much more. All of the above is created every year by volunteers from Tankwa Town.

It is a festival that keeps values. Values like art, love, family and culture. No advertisements. No shops. No nothing. A place where you can give without demanding something back and vice versa.


Music is a part of self-expression – and this is exactly how it works. You decide which kind of music is played and how.In contrast to other festivals, there is no big stage with famous artists. You make the show. There are no limits. It will be danced and celebrated on everything. If you plan on taking your own sound system, register it first and please take care of your neighbors.


Let your mind free. There is no limit. An outburst of colours, formes, figures and sounds. Everything is possible on the dusty planes of Tankwa Town.

If you want to make your own sculpture you would need to register it as well. You are not forced to make art or music. Being part of it and having fun is all what counts.


This is how it works:
