Swamp is on fire
Experience Burning Man culture in Lithuania!

Registration to the Baltic Burn is over.

Baltic Burn is a co-creative gathering of Burning Man participants and those who are interested in burner culture where we share creativity, art and love. It is all about co-creation, community and people – it brings art, performances, workshops and music together.

Baltic Burn is a locally organized burn in Lithuania that is run entirely by volunteers following the 10 core principles of Burning Man – self-expression, self-reliance, community, no commerce, leave no trace, participation, inclusion, gifting, co-operation and immediacy. We all, including YOU, will create a more expressive and interesting reality. The 10 principles of Burning Man

The event will take place on the second weekend of August (9-11) in a secret location not far from Vilnius. Registered participants will receive the location closer to the event. (The location, by the way? It will blow your mind!).

We plan to gather 365 creators from all over the world having no age limit. As it will be a campout event with no vending on site, every participant has to take care of their needs and of course think of others.

We encourage you to participate in many different ways: creating mind blowing art installations, building interactive theme camps, performing by showing your fantastic talents or simply helping any of the miracles happen!

To ensure best possible experience for everyone we set the registration time to have enough time to support you with your ideas. For the same reason we set the deadline for different registration types:

ALL participants registration starts on 1st of June and closes on 15th of July. Don’t be late as the number of tickets is limited. No ticket sales after 15th of July or at the gate!

Theme Camp registration starts on 5th of June and closes on 5th of July

Art Installation registration: June 5th – July 15th

10 BURNING MAN principles

Burning Man has established ten guidelines over which it has built the Burning Man culture. They were crafted not as a dictate of how people should be and act, but as a reflection of the community’s ethos and culture as it had organically developed since the event’s inception. Baltic Burn is built over these fundamental principles.

GIFTING

GIFTING

Burning Man is devoted to acts of gift giving. The value of a gift is unconditional. Gifting does not contemplate a return or an exchange for something of equal value.

PARTICIPATION

PARTICIPATION

Our community is committed to a radically participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change, whether in the individual or in society, can occur only through the medium of deeply personal participation. We achieve being through doing. Everyone is invited to work. Everyone is invited to play. We make the world real through actions that open the heart.

RADICAL SELF-EXPRESSION

RADICAL SELF-EXPRESSION

Radical self-expression arises from the unique gifts of the individual. No one other than the individual or a collaborating group can determine its content. It is offered as a gift to others. In this spirit, the giver should respect the rights and liberties of the recipient.

RADICAL SELF-RELIANCE

RADICAL SELF-RELIANCE

Burning Man encourages the individual to discover, exercise and rely on his or her inner resources.

DECOMMODIFICATION

DECOMMODIFICATION

In order to preserve the spirit of gifting, our community seeks to create social environments that are unmediated by commercial sponsorships, transactions, or advertising. We stand ready to protect our culture from such exploitation. We resist the substitution of consumption for participatory experience.

CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY

CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY

We value civil society. Community members who organize events should assume responsibility for public welfare and endeavour to communicate civic responsibilities to participants. They must also assume responsibility for conducting events in accordance with local, state and federal laws.

RADICAL INCLUSION

RADICAL INCLUSION

Anyone may be a part of Burning Man. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community.

COMMUNAL EFFORT

COMMUNAL EFFORT

Our community values creative cooperation and collaboration. We strive to produce, promote and protect social networks, public spaces, works of art, and methods of communication that support such interaction.

LEAVING NO TRACE

LEAVING NO TRACE

Our community respects the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We clean up after ourselves and endeavour, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them.

IMMEDIACY

IMMEDIACY

Immediate experience is, in many ways, the most important touchstone of value in our culture. We seek to overcome barriers that stand between us and a recognition of our inner selves, the reality of those around us, participation in society, and contact with a natural world exceeding human powers. No idea can substitute for this experience.
