Burning Questions

Who is Burning Woman Festival for?
Burning Woman is a festival for all women aged 12 and beyond. You are welcome to bring babes in arms to the festival, however we ask that you respect other women’s experience should the baby become unsettled. The festival does not have facilities or activities to cater for young children. 
Our vision is for a weekend of sisterhood! We welcome mothers, grandmothers, daughters, friends, sisters, and aunties to come join us as we gather to embrace and ignite the of power of Woman. Together we will co-create a weekend of adventure, the arts, wild spirit, nature, fun and love as we deepen our connections to the Earth and each other. We will leave feeling valued, nourished, empowered and inspired!
Burning Woman Festival is about healing our connection to the Divine Feminine whilst respecting and honouring the Divine Masculine. 
Burning Woman does not discriminate against race, religion, sexual orientation, age or creed. We welcome women from the BIPOC community and celebrate this diversity with workshop hosts and performers as we share and value the diversity of our gifts, talents, life experiences.
If you identify as a woman and wish to share and contribute to this festival, then you are welcome. 
The festival is a safe space for all attending, and we will not tolerate any form of hateful speech or behaviour.

Covid-19 Information

We continue to liaise with the licensing and Public Health authorities to implement the measures required for the festival to take place safely. We do not support mandatary enforcement of tests or a vaccine and feel it’s important for each ticket holder to make their own choice – holding space and respect for one another.

You are welcome to wear a mask and /or socially distance as you see fit and this will be at your discretion, unless we are required to enforce such measures, but at this time that is not the case at outdoor events.

There will be extra hand sanitizing and cleaning onsite to make sure that you remain well looked after.
In case of cancellation:
In the event that the festival is cancelled by the Government or Health Authorities, tickets can either be rolled over to 2023 or fully refunded.
