Kiwiburn Media Team

Back in February 2007, Kiwiburn moved to the North Island and became a standalone event. A time of great change and growth, the theme was MEGAmorphosis, which gave rise to MEGAmorphosis Man featured on all our posters. Burning Man has announced its theme for 2019: Metamorphoses. “A celebration of change, and an exploration of uncertainty.” Read more about the theme here.
