China 中国

Regional Community


With the world's largest population, a vigorous international community, and the factories that make all of your blinkies, China is an increasingly vital hub of burner activity.

On the playa, we keep our community coming together through the Annual Chinese Speakers' Tea Party, a Burning Man tradition since 2004.

In China proper, burner culture broke through to the masses with the 2006 Beijing Burning Man Film Festival, and fiery threads continue spreading.

Dragon Burn, Shanghai's regional event, began with a bang in 2013 in Tai Lake and moved to Anji in 2015. Dragon Burn's third event, held near Tai Lake, was granted official status in 2016. For more info, write shanghai at burningman dot org

In the meantime, Burner threads spread in Beijing, Guangzhou, and elsewhere on the mainland.
