2016 Art Theme

Hey you clever burners, what will be the Art Theme for 2016? Put on your thinking hat for ideas for the thirteenth Kiwiburn – unlucky for some! For inspiration, here are the posters depicting the themes over the years. Email your fabulous ideas to us at news@kiwiburn.com by midnight on Sunday 12 April, with a short description of what your idea means. The ExCom will make the decision by the end of April.

Kiwiburn 2016 dates confirmed!

It's official: Kiwiburn 2016 will be held from Wednesday 27 January until Monday 1 February. Mark it in your calendars and diaries, book the time off work and let all your friends know. And now that you know, there are no excuses; you have plenty of time to prepare and come up with excellent new ideas for art, camps and costumes. See you on the Paddock in 2016!

Auckland Afterburn party

The Auckland Afterburn Party attempts to bring all things paddock-like to a party in the city so that we can rekindle our fire and reconnect with all the lovely people we meet on the paddock. We are looking for people who are interested in contributing to the mix whether it be by bringing your art installation, playing a set or participating in any way you want. Please contact hippie@kiwiburn.com if you're interested!
