Oh, do yourself a favour, and bring cash, there's no machines here.

Packed to the brim. That's what this is. A full house, packed to the rafters, no holds barred, get it while it's hot, line up of talkshops, deejays, live acts, performances, mutants and artworks.
Pull in. Tomorrow. Cape Town.

Out there, there's still work being done. MOOP troops walk the line, clearing every wrapper, paper, thread and bead from our beloved Tankwa Town. You can help too, and get our team back early enough for the Decompression. If you've got the time or the inclination, contact volunteers@afrikaburn.com and head out to the dust again.

Just before this iconic burn, we held a moment of silence for Larry Harvey. How fitting that he passed while we continued the rituals that he catalysed.
Our thoughts are with his friends and family, and our hearts are richer for his influence.

It's all over now. As we turn over a new leaf, it begins again. One year until Clan burns.

THANK YOU to every person that gave their all, pushed their limits, and made Working Title ________ their own.

It's here. Your crazy WTF guide to the glory that is your city, your Working Title, your Tankwa Town.

Go see for yourself on the Tankwa Town page of our website and discover the magic things that are out there.

Much thanks and praise to our volunteer designers Rachel Smith and @soapberrydesign

Ever wondered what your street lamps look like in their natural habitat? All clumped together to catch some lightning?

Shout out to the crew on site the earliest and off site the latest. The big, bad, beautiful, builders of DPW. Making the space that you're coming home to in just over a week.

This.
This is the blank canvas your Working Title plays out on. It's all yours. It's your show, your performance and your experience. All you have to do is step up, and make it happen.

And once it's all over - this is how we leave it: without a trace. Ain't no one else gonna do it.
