Art and Music Festival | 5 Days with Camping
After all the rumors and all the spells, 3 years of longing which the whole world stopped a queen, we are ready to burn again, to be born again, to go back home.. Midburn 2021 is here!!
Midburn Festival, Burning Man’s Israeli cousin and now the second largest regional Burning Man after Africa Burns, is a special 5-day festival held in the Negev. Founded in 2014, the event has attracted a growing family, seeing a record 8,000 people in 2016. This is not a music festival – there are no official stages – it is more of an art, self expression and community festival where camps host parties – and in the center of the playa are incredible art displays and a huge temple that is burned on the final night.
Self Reliance and Self Expression are key components – be yourself, be inclusive, and be self-dependent – the only thing you can buy on the playa is ice.
Midburn exists in the spirit of 10 principles:
- Radical inclusion
- Communal effort
- Civic responsibility
- Leaving no trace
- Radical self-reliance
- Radical self-expression
Usually around October there is a large Midburn Reunion. You can see all the local Midburn Events in the Secret Tel Aviv Calendar.
