Sicilian Burning Sand 2018

Hello beautiful creature, nice to meet you!

Thanks so much for being here and reading these words, we are proud to introduce you to the 8th year of the Burning Sand, an event inspired by many of the principles of Burning Man.

Everything started as a game. We were only 40 people at the first edition, serrounded by mountains, the sea, full moon and millions of stars. It was the right place and the right time to create something special. That night 8 years ago, we danced, we shared, we burned, we connected our energies, and if today we're still her, it's because we will never forget that feeling that keeps burning inside of us!

We are a small event,  we care a lot about our environment, 

and we are totally independent having no money from companies, sponsors etc... we survive only through donations =)

We get all the wood we need from the dump

The main airports to get here are Trapani and Palermo

Trapani is one hour driving

Palermo is one hour and half driving

*Its possible to sleep at the Burning Sand beach, in a tent or car or van.

This is a LEAVE NO TRACE event, don't even leave cigarette butts on the ground.

Help us to keep the beach clean, help us to teach others to respect nature.

The Burning Sand location does not need anything to become awesome, it is already one of the most amazing places we've enjoyed in our lives.

Still, we're always looking for art and performance to make our experience even better!

Feel free to bring any kind of art to the Burning Sand, let us know and we will add you to the official program:)

We won't print any program by the way, we try to reduce waste as much as we can:)


October can be cold but usually we swim:)

This year the theme is "the spider web, the cicle of rebirth", the idea started in a dream...


The playa where we burn is sorrunded by mountains and sea, no houses nearby, a true paradise ready to see some friendly fire :)

Renting a car can make you totally independent, and that time of the year renting a car is pretty cheap, we can help put you in contact with other people that might be interested so you can share the expenses.

Let us know if you need more information, we are super happy to help! 


Are you ready to burn?
