AfrikaBurn 2024: 29 April to 5 May

Decompression – June 14th

Yes indeed, it’s that time again – time to reconnect, revive and reboot! Time to plug in and come together for a wild slice of Tankwa spice.

There’s a whole lot of amazing going on, thanks to a stellar show of participation on the part of you – our fantastic community. Thank you!

The venue is the same as last year (Salt River Studios, Cape Town) but there are a range of improvements this time round, including a separate heated outdoor area, better dancefloor configuration that’ll ensure all sounds enjoy their own space and some comfy warm chill areas. And there’ll be a coat check if you need it.

Check out this incredible lineup of highlights:

ARTWORKS: L2H2, The Tardis, Ouroboros, The Watchers, Cosmic Pacemaker, The Light Intensity, The Diver, Pipe Dreams, Monolith, Skaap III, Shimmer +++

MUTANT VEHICLES: Trike, Loki, Bakgatti, Mutant Noddy Car, Green Meanie +++
