Kaboom! Just as we realise that there’s less than 100 days ’til the Clan burns, the pace starts to pick up on the fundraiser front. Dig in, tuck in and pencil in some dates – the more you support camps & artists raising funds for Tankwa Town, the more we all get to enjoy bigger, better and more amazing experiences at this year’s AfrikaBurn!
