Kiwiburn20 – Eclectic Decade

January 22 @ 8:00 am - January 27 @ 10:00 am

Kiwiburn 2020 Eclectic Decade winning poster design, by Erika Pearce


Build something.
Fly something.
Float something.
Burn something.
Bring it to Kiwiburn.


This will be the 16th Kiwiburn. Come for the whole time, or as many days as you can.

Many volunteers will be needed for the event, so think about how you can contribute. Built on the guiding principles of Burning Man, Kiwiburn is a collective experience. Everybody contributes, everybody pays. As there are no paid performers at the event, there are no spectators and what is shared are the passions and dreams of those who gift them. You do not “attend” Kiwiburn, you are a part of it. There is no money exchanged for anything at the event. You bring everything you need to survive.

There will be art installations and people in costume, fire spinners, drummers… but that’s just us, and what we are doing… bring your passion and share with us your dreams.

Art is an integral part of Kiwiburn, installation, performance, interactive…. the limit is your imagination… so get creating…. the 2020 art theme is Eclectic Decade. Download the poster here. 

Kiwiburn has an Art Grants programme to help fund artwork… read more info about how to apply here.

TICKETS On sale soon.

What to bring. nb Ice is available, and is only thing you can buy, for keeping food/drink cool.

We need you – volunteer here.
