Spain - Barcelona

Regional Community

Barcelona is a fertile ground for creativity and playfulness! The culture here allready resembles that of the burns… fire is used in many festivities and rituals as a renewer of life and the streets are alive with art, music, performance, festivals, and breath-taking art istallations (architecture).

In the last couple of years, the Barcelona burners have created some wonderful events and projects. Barcelona is also a hub for the organisation of Nowhere, a Spanish and European regional burn in the Monegros desert in July.

Urban Playa is our own little burn and theme camp created in the heart of Barcelona's Gothic Quarter!  It started as a contraburn that takes place on the same dates as Burning Man, and later expanded to a monthly schedule. You are invited to participate and co-create: Art, The 10 Principles, Activities, Workshops, Games, Talks, Parties, Chillouts, Dancing, Flash Mobs, FUN, LEARNING, SHARING, GROWTH, EXPANSION, JOY!!!!!!  The frequency has been irregular since the pandemic but is still active. If you'd like to stay updated and get involved, join the Urban Playa Facebook group.

There is a monthly community meetup called Burning Barna which takes place on the third Thursday of every month. Follow the Facebook page for updates.

The main online space for the community is the Barcelona Burning Man Community group on Facebook.
