After all - unlike other events - the city we raise from the dust is not built or managed by 'someone else' Out there, there's no someone else - there's just us, and we're all in it together.

More about AfrikaBurn

Ephemerality (from Greek – ephemeros) is the concept of things being transitory, existing only briefly.

Rising like a dusty mirage out of the Karoo heat, there’s a city we call home. It's a manifestation of our collective imagination, and the culmination of our collective efforts. It comes and goes, and ebbs and flows. It’s transient, temporary and transitory. It’s neither here, nor there. It is real in its unrealness.

“Out of nothing, we created everything.” – Larry Harvey

Once a year, a city rises from the Tankwa dust: Tankwa Town. It's an ephemeral city that we build together - so it's fitting that this year's theme is 'Ephemeropolis'.

What's in store? Only you know the answer to that question - because unlike other events, you build Tankwa Town. Out there, there's no 'someone else' - there's just us, doing it together. And only together can we perform the magic of building a temporary city, filling it, and then making it vanish, leaving no trace.

Hi, just have a quick question. We got an email from Quicket this week, which says gates will open from 9am on event days next week - see photo. However, your latest Baardskeerder newsletter says gates open from 8am. What is the correct event day gate opening time?
