Who is Burning Woman Festival for?
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.
