AfrikaBurn Generator Policy

Guidelines for generators:

You’re having the perfect evening, music is not too loud, vibes in the camp site are great, when suddenly your neighbour fires up his earth-shatteringly noisy generator. Generator noise pollution can be more disturbing and intrusive than a loud sound system.

Let’s all agree to some guidelines to make our camping experience better.

Guidelines:

Generator hours for Theme Camps and Artworks can’t be regulated, but we ask that you be as considerate as possible to your neighbours.

  • Build a sound and fire resistant baffle for your generator. Baffles can reduce the noise of your generator tremendously.
  • Generator hours for campsites 11am – 4pm.
  • Make sure your cables are handled in a safe way.
  • If you’re in a campsite and you want to run a sound system it should be battery operated. Sound systems in camping areas should be shut off after 11pm. A 12 volt battery will be ample.
  • Consider investing in a blimped or silent generator or solar panels and batteries.
  • There is a limit to how much fuel and gas you can have on your campsite.
  • Mandatory switch off times: 7am – 11am Monday – Thursday. This includes generators unless it’s critical to your Theme camp operations.
