The Event

Kiwiburn is New Zealand's Regional Burning Man Event. There will be art installations, people in costume, fire spinners, drummers, and musicians... but that's just us and what we are doing... bring your passion and share with us your dreams. Build something. Fly something. Float something. Burn Something... bring it to Kiwiburn!


For its 15th year, Kiwiburn will become The Grand Bizarre!


New to Kiwiburn this year is Kiwiburner Profiles! You will need to create a Kiwiburner Profile to be able to buy a ticket. This will streamline the ticketing process so it’s more robust, secure and efficient. Everyone attending the event needs a Kiwiburner Profile, and everyone needs a ticket with their legal name which matches their ID.


There are no Gate sales.

Kiwiburn is an experiment in temporary community. No money changes hands, and you have to bring everything you'll need to survive, and Leave No Trace. To learn more, please read the Survival Guide

Unfortunately tickets have sold out but you can sign up on the Secure Ticket Exchange Program (STEP) to go on the wait list to buy one from someone else.
