Everything you need to know about preparing for the Burn.
Where is Kiez Burn held?
Kiez Burn 2022 will take place depending on the corona restrictions at the beautiful site of Kulturgut Freiland, about 2hrs north of Berlin.
What do I need to get into the event?
You need 3 things:
- Government-issued photo ID that matches the name on the ticket.
- A negative test result for COVID from an official source that’s not older than 24 hours.
- The QR code from your ticket. If it’s on your phone, set it to full brightness to help the scanners.
Anything other than these three things will make us turn you away.
What things will get me rejected at the entrance?
Instead of government-issued ID: student card, credit card, paper cutout, insurance card, some random piece of paper.
Instead of a printed ticket or pdf with ticket number and name: an email from a friend, a verbal transfer that didn’t happen on burnertickets.com, some marbles.
Can I bring my pet?
In 2021, there was a trial consensus to have 5 dogs allowed at Kiez burn this year. The discussions for 2022 will open again a little later. Please keep an eye on talk.
Are there showers?
Yes, there are outdoor showers. Woohooo!! and if you ask nicely someone will bathe you like the goddess you are. You will need to bring your own organic body wash, shampoo and conditioner, towel, and toiletries.
Bring your own biodegradable showering soap and shampoo. We want to keep our impact on the water as low as possible.
This year, you will find the LNT Lab right next to the the showers. Bring your empty detergent bottle and mix yourself dishwashing concentrate. It is sustainable, plastic free and biodegradable so If you use it, the nature will thank you. Additionally we will also offer some vinegar and recipes to mix yourself shampoo and other natural cleaning products.
Is there water on Kiez Burn site?
Yes. It is drinkable. We do need to install our own pipes to distribute them across the site. That is part of the water team’s role.
Are there toilets?
Yes, lovely eco-ones. They don’t even smell that bad.
Can I swim in the water?
It is in the interest of the affected parties (which is currently the legal body responsible if someone drowns at the event) to take the rational and cautious choice of simply enforcing a “No-swimming in any lake policy”.
This means that in order to cool down, you will have to be really self-reliant. Remember there’s no lake on the real Playa, just sand and alkalized salt, we’ll survive the German summer heat. Bring a spray bottle and a handheld fan just in case.
What is the 2022 theme?
The theme for this years Kiez Burn has not yet been decided.
Can I wear glitter?
No. it is considered MOOP.
Will my phone work?
There is limited signal on-site at Kiez Burn. In some places, you will find some. In the spirit of immediacy, put away your phone and immerse yourself in the shit show.
Can I be naked during the event?
One of the principles behind Kiez Burn is self-expression, so if part of your self-expression is nudity, people will accept that – and at the very least tolerate it! There are some people who are not as comfortable with nudity, and it’s important to be sensitive to that (during meal times, for example – and all kitchens require you to be clothed when cooking!). Please keep in mind there are also children in attendance also.
