MIDBURN is the official regional event organized by the Midburn community – the Israeli Burning Man community. For 5 days, a temporary city is set up in the Negev desert, creating a platform which will allow a communal life style, creativity, art and radical self-expression.
The first Midburn took place in 2014, after about 2 years of building the community and a number of small-scale yet impressive unofficial events. Midburn 2014’s population was 3,000. The event took place in Ramat Negev Regional Council’s jurisdiction with the kind help of the tourism department as well as many other departments.
The second MIDBURN will take place on 20-24, 2015. This year’s Art Theme is: TRANSCENDENCE.
