Firstly: 10KMH IS THE SPEED LIMIT
Mobile art? Damn right! At AfrikaBurn a piece of mobile art is called a Mutant Vehicle and they can include motorised …anything, really. Cars. Bikes. Couches. Bars. Jellyfish. Bees. Mice. Bunnies. Zebra. Pacman. You get the picture.
But to drive your mutant vehicle, it has to be significantly modified – and licensed by our Department of Mutant Vehicles (the DMV). If your car looks like a car, and doesn’t invite participation, it won’t be allowed to drive around.
The same applies to e-Bikes: any electrically-powered vehicle (scooters, trikes, tuk-tuks etc) with over 400 Watts of power must be mutated, and registered.
To find out more about e-Bikes, please see our policy here.
If you are thinking about bringing a Mutant Vehicle to AfrikaBurn please read the guidelines:
You must register your MV well before you leave for Tankwa Town. Please don’t arrive at AfrikaBurn with an unregistered MV, as it will be grounded (which would be kak).
– Registration of Mutant Vehicle info for our WTF Guide for 2020 closes March 28th!
– Final registration date for Mutant Vehicles is midnight April 5th.
To register your Mutant:
– first log into your Burner Bio
– create a Collective
– then use the Registration options to register your Mutant to your Collective
Upon arrival, all MV’s must be brought to the DMV Testing Station at 6ish and Binnekring. There the DMV crew will check that your MV has been acceptably modified, and will then license you to cruise around in your creation. No license, no cruising – this applies to day or night driving (both of which require a license).
