The Manawatu Standard arrived on the Paddock on Wednesday and our media team showed them round the site. Their observations are here.

Radical Self-reliance

Shelley Watson

Kiwiburn is built on the ten principles of Burning Man. Number four is Radical Self-reliance; you need to bring EVERYTHING you need to survive with you, including water, whether you’re a Theme Camp or a happy camper. There will be no access to farm water. It is not Kiwiburn’s responsibility to provide you with safe drinking water – you should bring … Read More

Respect our Burn Perimeter!

At the Effigy and Temple burns, we take special safety precautions to make sure our participants and the firefighters who help us with our burns are safe. DO NOT CROSS THE BURN PERIMETER!

Ticketing update

Shelley Watson

Saturday’s ticket sale didn’t go quite as planned! Kiwiburn is well and truly oversold. Maybe there were ghosts in the machine, or Mercury being in retrograde is playing havoc with technology. Whatever the cause, ALL THE OVERSOLD TICKETS WILL BE HONOURED. Every cent of the money from tickets goes into making this and future events happen; from security, portable toilets, … Read More

Ticketing update after server crash

Shelley Watson

So many of you were trying to get tickets this morning that our server overloaded and died a horrible death, followed by the back up plan we had in place failing too. While we were trying to fix it all, a Kiwiburner unofficially posted a link taking you directly to the Cosmic page and their server had a spasm and … Read More
