The Burning Man festival is slowly germinating across the globe and has reached Australian shores, with the cutely apt title of ‘Burning Seed’.
Like its big brother, the Seed is centred on the ideals of community, self-expression and freedom from modern materialism; guided by ten principles including radical inclusion, radical self-reliance and radical self-expression.
Team that with a quirky array of oversized installations and a ton of experimental workshops, and the word radical is hardly sufficient.
Believe it or not, Burning Seed is now in its third year, but it has (perhaps intentionally) remained a bit of a myth. Much like Burning Man did in its first few decades. Date swaps, very little promotion and the constant swapping from one Southern NSW forest area to another make it a pretty hard event to keep up with.
If you wish you were around for Woodstock and love the Sydney Mari Gras, you need a ticket for Burning Seed 2012.
They are on sale now at burningmanaustralia.com.
