The most branded radio station in an unbranded non commercial space

Radio Free Tankwa is AfrikaBurn's community radio station and broadcasts daily during AfrikaBurn the event. When you're in Tankwa Town, it's the best place to find out the latest burn schedule, discover which theme camp is hosting a drinks party and what the Tankwa Town rush hour traffic is like. Don't forget to bring an old radio to AfrikaBurn so you can tune in

Anyone can host a show on Radio Free Tankwa or help out. Pop into the radio caravan by off-centre camp and find out how to sign up and be a DJ on the most faulty radio station in the Karoo.

During the year, Radio Free Tankwa broadcasts 24/7 and hosts daily live shows from our burner community that are often rebroadcast on Shouting Fire, the global burner radio network. We play old interviews, a wide range of eclectic, esoteric and downright weird content - basically, a reflection of the content you'd expect to hear at AfrikaBurn itself.

You can listen to Radio Free Tankwa now by clicking here.
