Art and Music Festival | 5 Days with Camping | Negev | May – June

Burning Man’s Israeli offshoot, and now the second largest regional Burning Man after Africa Burns, Midburn is a special 5-day festival held in the Negev. Founded in 2014, 2016 saw a record 8,000 people attend. 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:

  1. Radical inclusion
  2. Communal effort
  3. Gifting
  4. Civic responsibility
  5. Decommodification
  6. Leaving no trace
  7. Radical self-reliance
  8. Participation
  9. Radical self-expression
  10. Immediacy

Usually around October there is a large Midburn Reunion – 2015’s edition is called Decompression at Ronit’s Farm.
