By the mere fact that a Survival Guide is needed at all, it should be obvious that survival at AfrikaBurn deserves some serious consideration. To be truly prepared, download and read the guide – yes, even you veterans (there’s new info in every edition) – and share it with anyone you know that could use the info.
In 2017, we’re very happy to have our Survival Guide available in English, Afrikaans – and isiXhosa! To read & download the Guide in the language that suits you best, click that cover here:
Massive thanks to everyone involved* in helping us get this document into 3 languages and have it populated with glorious design and illistration – get your copy online (or pick it up at the event gate / OCC on arrival): afrikaburn.com/the-event/preparation
*Jeanne Kepaan for design, layout & illustration, Louis De Villiers and Marisca Coetzee for Afrikaans translation and Mava Ntontela, Thembela Zongezile and CraigieChi Makhosi for isiXhosa translation – and all the incredible illustrators who are credited in the guide for their amazing work: Anthea Duce, Ernst Lass, Grace De Koorn, Philippus Johan Schutte, Karl Schulschenk, Matthew Fraser, Mischka Byram, Natasha Viljoen, Skubalisto and last but not least, the designer who’s contributed illustrations herself and has managed the overall design & layout, Jeanne Fourie.
As with every year’s event, there’s a bunch of important info and updates that you should read – even if you’re a veteran. If you’d like a printed version, pick one up at Off-Centre Camp, or at our event gate, along with the poster and WTF Guide, at the event.
Many thanks to the talented Mea Waffle for volunteering her time to design our 2016 guide, to Fi Smit for designing the map and to Patsy Hamilton and Marisca Coetzee for assisting with Afrikaans translation – and to all who’ve contributed to its content over the years.
Our 2017 Survival Guide will be released here soon after our second General ticket sale, look out for that announcement.
With gratitude to all who’ve worked on Survival Guides past:
