After all, we’re all going to enjoy the proceeds in less than…OMG – THERE’S LESS THAN 3 WEEKS TO GO!!!



Danny Popper and his crew are out in the desert, and “The guys are smashing pegs into the ground in Tankwa to lay foundations for the most epic sculpture you’ve ever seen!” as his Lady Natalia Fantastica puts it.
This is going to be the biggest artwork yet at AfrikaBurn – please support it by heading on over to the StartMe link below and donating – everyone at AfrikaBurn 2013 will thank you!


The Breakfast Epiphanies are pleased to present another night of activities in aid of their AfrikaBurn theme camp. This Saturday night April 13th we will be bringing you some funky beats, from rocking Min Tech to smooth house to a little Balkan bounce around- something for everyone. The Stone-Age Citizens, Billy Rivers, Travis Hyde, Frisky business and Yeti will be on the decks, and it promises to be an evening to remember.
Drinks are cheap, smiles are free. Please come support and join us for a party!

When: Saturday 13th April, 9pm
Where:  Hectic On Hope, Hope Street, Cape Town
R40 if you dress up and R50 if you just want to come jol.


Artist Daya Heller has an amazing piece which is seeking funding to bring it to life in the Tankwa. The sculptures form an installation of two slightly larger than life figures. one man and one woman. archetypes. facing each other. their skeletons are revealed. their faces are masks. between them is a biological heart on an arrow. They stand on steel circles raised off the ground. Their outer bodies are modelled in cement, their skeletons are worked in welded steel and their faces are sculpted in wax and cast in bronze.
Book one of 60 original signed photos of the completed artwork in its glory in the Tankwa, for R100 each, and contribute to raising the remaining funds needed for The Agreement’s realisation…

It starts early, and it goes on late, because we have a lot to fit in. Wheels will turn as the roller girls take on the bike polo team. Paint will fly (literally).

As the heat turns up, our burlesque beauties shed their clothes. As the bar gets busy, no doubt the wheels of karma will turn too (OK, that’s another story).
Live music and DJs will provide the backdrop for our many dancers … but you can read all the details below.
All you need to know is that things kick off at 14:30, live music kicks in at 17:30, and we keep on going as hard as we can until midnight. Like I said … if you think you can handle it, come on over. (Oh, and buy your ticket beforehand, it makes much more sense)

Summers almost gone but Critical Tits is gonna turn up the heat one last time before we pack away our teeny weeny bikinis in exchange for full length coats!
There’ll be a bunch of hot chicks in bikinis getting soapy and wet while waxing on and off any vehicle that’s a little dirty and needs a good wash down! Pierre-Estienne will be spinning ‘carwash’ songs to keep the girls feeling frisky while they lather roaring steel engines into spanky and sparkly glory!
Bring any mode of transport that needs a good wash down to the parking lot behind &Union, sit in you car for the full experience or relax at &Union taking in the great view of the honeys lathering down your roaring steel engine/ bike/ bicycle. Did someone say Rainbow? Artist Michael Elion will be making a real rainbow above the girls to frolic in as they play in the bubbles.
What would this fantasy be without beer? Complete the picture with a cold one from &Union!!
Where: Parking lot on Buitengracht Street (next to Heritage Square), Cape Town
When: April 13, 12 midday – 6pm


The Flow Arts Community of AfrikaBurn, are a merry group of tricksters, spinners, hoopers, flarers and dancers who love to entertain. So much so, that we are organising a multi-faceted theme camp for AfrikaBurn 2013, the Flow Arts Commune, that aims to share our love for all things manipulated with our fellow burners. Unfortunately, paraffin, wood, costumes, performance props, and building materials are expensive nowadays and so we must try our hands at busking in order to raise funds for our camp.  This endeavour brings us to Trenchtown (ye olde Cool Runnings), Observatory, Cape Town, every Saturday night for the foreseeable future.  Entrance is free, but donations are encouraged.  Come and join us for nights of fantastical fire that promise to inspire and perhaps entice a few of your spare coins into our hat. All fellow fire dancers are welcome to jam with us, although there will be some safety/environmental guidelines to adhere to.

WHEN: Every Saturday (except for when we’re at the burn), 8 – 10pm
WHERE: Trenchtown, corner of Lower Main Rd and Station Rd, Observatory.
Facebook event 13th April:
join our group:


The keg tribe are holding a pub quiz at the Wild Goose bar in Observatory to raise money for their AfrikaBurn project! Of course, the project is to bring ice-cold beer to the parched citizens of Tankwa Town!
There will be many excellent prizes for not only the quiz winners, but also a whole bunch of spot-prizes…think Massage Gift Vouchers, a Magnum of Jordan Wine, LED light Braai Equipment, Six-Packs of Beer, a Colcachio’s Restaurant Voucher, Wallets, an SAB Brewery tour, pub snacks and a grand prize to the value of R600 for the winning group.
Groups of 4 will be organized upon arrival.
R40 per person: cash at the door!
When: Friday April 19th, 6:45pmWhere: Wild Goose Pub, corner of Lower Main Road and Norfolk Road, Observatory.
Dress code: Gender Bending… (those who fail to at least make an attempt at following the dress code will be fined R10 at the door).


Pirate Radio ARRR (99.9 FM)
After filling patches of Tankwa Town with complete AfrikaBurn audio nonsense last year, Radio ARRR are taking to the air once more, bigger and better, on 99.9FM.
We also need to spread the AfrikaBurn sounds all around Tankwa town, so if you’ve got a radio then bring it along with you too and tune it to 99.9 FM. If you’ve got a spare old battery powered radio that you no longer use then can you pretty pretty please donate it to us so we can donate it to others at the burn?
Check out our website ( ) and find our Facebook page ( ) for updates and our schedule as it books up!
