Burning Seed


Burning Seed is an annual Australian regional Burning Man event, held in late September at Red Earth City, Matong State Forest, NSW.

The event is dedicated to creative practice, celebrates community, fosters Radical Self Expression and is founded on Radical Self Reliance. The community exists and grows through Communal Effort, is commerce free, and relies on the participation of all community members to achieve its needs, goals and dreams.

The experience of positive interactions and ‘Radical Inclusion’ nurtures every participant and the ‘Gifting Economy’ provides insight into how it truly is joyful it is to share and share alike.

Burning Seed is a direct extension of the core philosophy of the Burning Man Project as defined by the Ten Principles.


Burning Seed is an annual gathering that through communal effort enables its participants a transformative experience. Emanating out of place, and manifesting itself outside of the pattern of traditional festivals and events, Burning Seed is an experience of gift giving that encourages participation on all levels. Participants are afforded opportunities to gain skills for building permanent and ephemeral communities across a diverse spectrum of lifestyles and is deeply rooted in culture and creative practice.

Every member of the Burning Seed community is strongly encouraged to participate!

Participation, commitment and immersion in the event allows for connections to form and grow and for wider community to flourish.
