Discussion List:

Our primary method of communication is by email and we have a number of mailing lists that everyone is welcome to join. Please read the list descriptions to see which list is most suitable for you.

  • PlayaDust European discussion list. Discussion is moderated to an extent, to keep things focused on Burning Man, Nowhere and their associated events. However, as one of the main communication tools for a community that is spread throughout a continent, some chat does occur on this list. You can expect about 5 - 10 emails a week during quiet periods, to over 20 email a day during busy periods. 
  • Events Announce European events announcements. This list is only used to announce Euroburner events, such as Nowhere and Decompression. There is no chat or discussion on this list, and you can expect fewer than 20 emails per year on this list.
  • Burning Nest A celebration of the human spirit, overflowing with Burner values. Come home to this yearly Burn, held in the SW every summer. Discussion, information and membership all available here!
  • MicroBurn A not-for-profit community hosting modest size Burn every September in Wales. We were born in the North of England and hope to continue develop Burner Events in our local communities. 
  • London's Burning London discussion and chat. A list for social events and general Burner discussion in London and the UK. Traffic is moderate, and involves anything from queries regarding RV rentals in San Francisco to reiki or massage skill swaps. 
  • SwBurners South West England discussion. 
  • SouthCoastBurners Brighton-centred South Coast of England discussion. 
  • ScotsBurners Scotland discussion.
