  • Don’t be intimidated if people seem to know each other – AfrikaBurn is one of the most friendly places you can be, so feel free to join in with groups.
  • Icebreaker questions can be a useful thing to have up your sleeve to start things off …

Aren't Pop-up Messages Annoying?

Not as annoying as Viagogo and the other ticket tout companies that want to steal your hard-earned money.

If you're looking to buy AfrikaBurn tickets, please do not purchase from any website other than our Quicket Page.
