Art and Music Festival | 5 Days with Camping | Negev | May – June

Burning Man’s Israeli offshoot, and now the second largest regional Burning Man after Africa Burns, Midburn is a special 5-day festival held in the Negev. Founded in 2014, 2016 saw a record 8,000 people attend. This is not a music festival – there are no official stages – it is more of an art, self expression and community festival where camps host parties – and in the center of the playa are incredible art displays and a huge temple that is burned on the final night.

Self Reliance and Self Expression are key components – be yourself, be inclusive, and be self-dependent – the only thing you can buy on the playa is ice.

Midburn exists in the spirit of 10 principles:

  1. Radical inclusion
  2. Communal effort
  3. Gifting
  4. Civic responsibility
  5. Decommodification
  6. Leaving no trace
  7. Radical self-reliance
  8. Participation
  9. Radical self-expression
  10. Immediacy

Usually around October there is a large Midburn Reunion. You can see all the local Midburn Events in the Secret Tel Aviv Calendar.

The playback community is a diverse and complex community from all sectors of the population: secular, religious, Arab, ultra-Orthodox and ultra-Orthodox, right-wing and left-wing, women and men.

Every story has a place with us, without judgment and without criticism.
We do not ignore the difficult reality we live in. We want to raise the quality of listening and discourse to everything that is difficult.
