NEW IN 2023
The privacy of our participants with regards to photography.
In previous years at AfrikaBurn, you needed to get a pink 'No Photo' wristband if you wanted your desire not to have your photo taken in Tankwa Town to be made visible. We've found that this has not stopped our participants from showing up unexpectedly in social media posts online when they're radically expressing themselves. This year, (which is the same as EVERY year) the agreement upon entering Tankwa Town is that all participants at AfrikaBurn have not given their consent to be photographed, whether they are wearing a pink wristband or not. It's important to note that Quaggafontein and AfrikaBurn are not public events and are not held on public land. Only the people that have given express permission for their photo to be taken can be photographed in 2023. More information can be found here.
DDT Tickets are no more
To make things easier for theme camps, mutants and artists to get tickets, we used to have Direct Distribution Tickets (DDTs) available through various channels. However, this made the final numbers on site much harder to manage and not all of this allocation was often used up. Therefore this year, if you need a ticket to get into AfrikaBurn (which is pretty much everyone), you'll need to please buy your ticket in the general sale which is happening in November. (Please see the Ticketing Townhall video on youtube for more info.)
