Episode 28: ‘Midburn, Israel’s Burning Man Festival’ with Itamar Cohen

Every year under the sweltering sun of the Negev Desert, a city forms for just 5 days. This city is called Midburn. Inspired by the Burning Man Festival in the Nevada desert, Midburn is currently the 2nd biggest “burn” event outside of the US, boasting 8,000 people in 2016. The community of people which gather each year have a fascinating story and a bona fide culture. Itamar Cohen, Midburn’s Head of Operations, joins 2NJB to talk about what it takes to be a “burner”.

Check out Midburn’s Page on the Secret Tel Aviv Website, and all the latest Burner Events.
