The Borderland Festival 2018

I have been in Norway during the summer and went to Denmark with two friends to go to a festival called Borderland. It is Denmarks regional burn of Burning Man. Borderland is a participatory festival. The people that choose to go, bring and make things that they want to have there. My two friends and I made soap to give out and helped out with manual labour. It is through this way of thinking that people create an amazing atmosphere where every performance, set up, art piece and so on are all there because people want to contribute. This was my third time to a regional burn and it defiantly is a festival I would recommend. p.s Consent is one of the principles of this event. If you film or take pictures you have to ask for consent first. This meant that I walked around very little with the camera.

Kiwiburn is a participatory festival. The people that choose to go, bring and make things that they want to have there. It is through this way of thinking that people create an amazing atmosphere where every performance, set up, art piece and so on are all there because people want to contribute.

I definitely enjoyed my time there and I would suggest to get in early and get next years ticket when you can!

 

Sundaise Festival 2017

The army, two fire trucks and the police called into Sundaes Festival both during and after the flood of the festival site Friday night/Saturday morning. The river rose to chest level and created panic, evacuation and waves across the main festival site causing house trucks, cloths stock, cars and heaps of beautiful work by the festival organizers to be destroyed. With the help from the salvation army, police, fire brigades, the army, festival organizers and individuals there were no injuries, however, it was not a pleasant experience and there are some that have left the site with less then what they arrived with. My regards goes out to all the festival beings that have shared this experience with me.
