Tent? Check. Gas mask? Check. Kitchen sink? Check.

Remember, what's in store are no stalls. And there are no spectators either. We all build and populate Red Earth City with its magic, and it's this participatory ethic that makes a Burn so unique. When it's time to say goodbye, we also leave the site exactly as we found it  — or even better. 

What does this mean? It means radical self-reliance and communal effort, baby. Aka you'll need to bring everything necessary to survive for seven days in an area that can be prone to cold, wet and wind at this time of year: enough water, food, shelter, tickets and clothing. And you'll also need to take all of it away with you again — every last little trace. It's all up to you, so confront your own survival and prepare to help create our home, Red Earth City.
