Register a Performance

Punk band? One man band? Riel dans groep? Skiffle player? 18-piece jazz troupe? Orchestra? Interpretive dancer? Tuvan throat singer? Maskandi? Beat poet? DJ? Great.

Just one thing: as everything in Tankwa Town is created by its citizens (that’s you), we (as AfrikaBurn) don’t book artists, or DJ’s – and all performers are all on the same level in the dust. It really makes no difference if you play in Bangkok, Berlin, Brooklyn or Bloemfontein, or how many fans you have on Soundcloud.

Why? Because AfrikaBurn isn’t a music festival.

And because it’s not a music festival…


Need a stage or space to your thing? You’ll need to hook up with a camp that has what you’re after – or create it yourself. Many theme camps create a collaborative space open for any performer to use, and they may provide some equipment.

To get in touch with crews that are looking for performers, or even DJ’s, log into our website first, then check out our Join A Project page. Many of the registered Theme Camp, Artwork and Mutant Vehicle projects list the talent and skills they’re looking for on that page, which also provides a contact detail.

And, if you’d prefer to create & host your own performance:
– firstly, well done (that’s exactly the spirit of our event)
– second, log into our site and then use the Create Collective option (in your left hand sidebar) to register your crew – then go ahead and use the Register a Binnekring Event option to have your planned event registered (and listed in our event guide).
