The Event Guide

The Event Guide is your essential guide to Kiwiburn. It is presented to new arrivals on the Gate and includes vital information for your perusal. Explore the map and figure out where all the Art Installations are lurking around the Paddock. Discover key info about the festival culture and operations, wicked Theme Camps and extraordinary events. Past years events have included the Pirate Olympics, a twerking competition and serious talks on how to save the world.

Every participant receives a printed copy of the Event Guide booklet at Gate upon arrival.
If you'd like to download a copy of the 2021 Event Guide, you can find that here.

This year, we had a separate Art Trail Map as well, and can be downloaded here.

Here are the events that were held at Kiwiburn 2021 - check out the list below to see what sort of things you might be in for when we return to the Paddock in 2022...

Event Registrations for 2022 will open on 21 September, and close on 5 January.

The Revolving Clothesline

ALL DAY at The Depot

Such an entrenched feature of Kiwiburn, it probably stays up year-round. This is an all-genders and hopefully all sizes week-long clothes swap, but it is what you make it… bring clothes to set free and find new threads you didn’t know you needed, or costumes you forgot to bring. Please keep it tidy and leave dirty or non-clothing items at your camp.
