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…

As per last year, the Space Cowboys (at 2ish) will be throwing an event of galactic proportions gifting phat beats, cocktails and entertainment … and  this year promises to be monumental.  While we ultimately desire the never ending free flow of Pangalactic Gargle Blasters dished up by flaming barmen, we fear, with the increased numbers at this years burn, we may run dry of our precious rocket fuel.
If you feel the need for some hyperspace brain rewiring, and so desire, come gift a bottle of your favorite spirits and astro travel down to where the planets resonate with dusty love and the dimensions separate with earsplitting beats
…. remember to bring your own cups and leave no MOOP!


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?
