Welcome to MIDBURN: The Israeli Burning Man in the Dusty Negev Desert

As our car drove along the bumpy dirt road deep into the Negev Desert, I found myself in a state of complete and utter excitement.  The event I had been waiting nearly a year for had finally arrived, and I just knew it was going to be a totally unique and magical experience.

We pulled up to the front entrance gate, got our mobile tickets scanned to receive our MIDBURN wristbands, and proceeded through the (surprisingly painless) security line.

Welcome Home!” one of the (gorgeous) Midburn greeters shouted, and then proceeded to ask “So…are you guys virgins?”  

Midburn Israel

Since this was my first burn, and also my new Israeli friends who drove me Udi & Jordan’s (who drove me to the playa) first burn &#; we were asked to exit the car, head over to a giant bell, and hit it while exclaiming…“I’M NO LONGER A VIRGIN!”LOL.

We then parked our car, found our way to our campsite, and MIDBURN had officially commenced.

What is Midburn?

For those who have never heard of this amazing event before — it’s the Israeli version of the annual Burning Man event in Black Rock City, Nevada.While some would call it a music festival (which is definitely a major aspect MIDBURN), it’s a whole lot more than that!

It’s a beautiful, loving, and accepting community which is founded on The 10 Principles of  Burning Man:

  • Radical Inclusion.
  • Gifting.
  • Decommodification. &#;
  • Radical Self-reliance. &#;
  • Radical Self-expression. &#;
  • Communal Effort. &#;
  • Civic Responsibility. &#;
  • Leaving No Trace.
  • Participation
  • Immediacy

For me &#; MIDBURN is simply about love, community, good vibes, and enjoying one hell of a wild party in the desert with amazing people from around the world.    

Midburn Israel

This year I’ve already attended several “transformational events and festivals” like Island Life in Panama, Envision Festival in Costa Rica, and Lucidity Festival in California &#; so I’m definitely not a stranger to this type of atmosphere.  

In many ways, I already felt like a “burner” even before attending MIDBURN, so I think that’s definitely one of the reasons why I was so excited.  With that being said &#; you can have an idea of what to expect at an event like Burning Man or Midburn&#;but it&#;s absolutely something you need experience to understand it what it&#;s all about.  

Midburn Israel

If you read my Instagram Bio &#; it says &#;exploring the world with my camera looking for adventure, festivals, and good vibes&#;, and Midburn provided that on an exponential level. 

MIDBURN Campsite Communities

&#;Who are you camping with?&#; was one of the most common questions asked out on the playa.

The way it all works is that basically everyone joins a camp that contributes to the Midburn community in different ways.  Whether that&#;s creating a stage for music, an art installation, themed parties, delicious meals, or tasty drinks.  Midburn thrives on communal participation, and that&#;s what makes it&#;s so unique.  People get REALLY into it, and come up with such cool ideas to enhance everyone else&#;s experience.

Midburn Israel Burning Man

When you join a camp (which fees can range between $ &#; $ USD), it will typically provide daily meals, some alcohol, and camping area / shade &#; but you&#;ll be responsible for contributing to the camp by volunteering for clean-up shifts, bartending, and whatever else the camp may need.

I was fortunate enough to camp with the amazing people at MEDICAMP &#; which was the camp for primarily all the doctors and nurses who volunteered their time in the medical tents during Midburn.  It was one of the largest camps (that I know of) with over people, and had amazing food, showers, and private toilets to use.

When I first arrived to Midburn and found my way to my camp&#;I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY by the organization / infrastructure throughout the Midburn camps.  Every camp had MASSIVE  circus-sized covers which provided much needed shade from the intense Israel desert heat, and had plenty of room for everyone to camp underneath them.  I idiotically thought I was going to have to set-up my tent in the sun because I didn&#;t bring a canopy (which I think is one of the most important music festival camping essentials), but I was pleasantly suprised to see that Medicamp had me covered (literally).

Some of my favorite camps were Mexicamp (as my Playa bestie Alex in Wanderland) was camping there, &#;Straight Friendly&#; because of their fabulouscocktails and Britney Spears tunes, and Pillow Fight Club for their famous sunset pillow fight.

The Clockwork Map & Midburn Bible

When I entered Midburn, I was given what I like to call the &#;Midburn Bible&#;, which basically was the schedule for daily planned activities, workshops, parties, food, etc.

Midburn is set-up like a clock, and it was always super easy to navigate where you were in the campsites by finding one of the signs.  For example &#; MEDICAMP was located at 5 o&#;clock.  So if I looked at the schedule and saw they were offering free food & a party at a camp located at 6 o&#;clock &#; I would know it&#;s a camp pretty close to me.

You could stroll all the way from , and then you could explore all the artwork in the &#;Deep Playa&#;, or make your way to the middle where the main effigy which they burn was.

Let&#;s Talk Playa Music

All of the DJ&#;s I heard spin throughout the playa&#;s various &#;stages&#; were absolutely phenomenal, and I definitely lost a few kg&#;s dancing out in the desert.  While there was music consistently heard throughout the entire event, there are a few places that were my highlights.

Midburn Pirates

Midburn Israel

If I HAD to pick a favorite stage, then this would definitely be it.  The music / vibes at this stage were always top notch, and I&#;ll never forget that sunset set on Thursday.  Such amazing energy, good vibes, and quality tunes for that hour.  You can take a listen here:

The Techno Dome

Midburn Israel

If you were looking for me on the playa, there was a good chance this is where you&#;d find me.  This massive DOME was unbelievably fun, and watching the bright lights change colors and fade to black made the dance floor go crazy.  The music was also super diverse here (even with the name Techno Dome), and it was tons of fun to hear different styles of music being played here.

The Rabbit

Midburn Israel

Spacey, minimal, playa techno FTW.

The DJ’s at this stage were consistently playing some top-notch music, but the FINAL NIGHT of Midburn &#; this was the PLACE TO BE. 

The party vibes were on point, the visuals of the rabbit were crazy trippy, and I heard one of the best sets of the entire festival from around A.M here. 

The SpaceShip

Midburn Israel

Do you like Pys-trance…?Then this was your stage.I quickly realized that Israeli’s are definitely all about this upbeat and repetive genre, and I definitely enjoyed doing some dancing here.

While I’m not personally the biggest fan of Psytrance &#;

Sunrise Kingdom

The name speaks for itself…sunrise techno on the playa is absolutely magical, and there was no better place to do so than at Sunrise Kingdom.  (I can&#;t believe I forgot to take a photo of this small camp / stage)&#;but here are some of the epic sets that were played at Midburn   

&#;Sunrise Kingdom is a Techno and House Sound Camp in the Israeli Burning Man festival &#; MidBurn, since   From deep house to techno, from sunset to sunrise, we provide the playa the best vibes and music.

Art Installations & LED Adult Playground

While there&#;s tons of cool things to explore on the playa during the day&#;the real fun begins after the sun sets beneath the desert hills, and Midburn turns into a colorful LED wonderland.  It&#;s truly a massive playground for adults (and kids actually), and everywhere you look there&#;s epic art installations, cool campsites, a massive spider & dragon, and Midburners decked out in twinkly lights/ crazy outfits

Every night I loved exploring different parts of the playa with my new burner friends, and was consistently in awe at all there was to do.

The Burner Love

The &#;burner&#; community attracts such a beautiful, loving, accepting, and incredible group of people &#; and you can really feel that vibe on the playa.

Everyone seems to be the best and most open versions of themselves, and are to meeting new people, new experiences, and simply enjoying this wonderful temporary city in the desert.

This is the ISRAELI Burning Man though, so sometimes Israelis can seem a little stand offish, but they really are incredibly awesome.  I&#;ve visited Israel two different times now, and I&#;ve completely fallen in love with the country (and that&#;s largely in part due to so many of the people I shared Midburn with).

Midburn Israel

Burner Fashion

Anything goes&#;the weirder the better.

Midburn is a place of self-expression, but there definitely is a certain type of burner fashion / outfits you&#;ll see on the playa.  I&#;m no stranger to costume parties / music festivals, and I had so much fun getting dressed dressed up in my freshly acquired burner gear and ridiculous leggings.  I also got lots of inspiration for my future burn events.

I actually had to ship a whole package of my burner stuff back to my house in California (so I have it for Burning Man), and I couldn&#;t travel with it during my time in Europe.

**It is ridiculously hot during the day, and can get a bit chillier at night &#; so you do need to come a bit prepared for all types of weather**

Let It Burn

On the 4th day of the event is when the main burning of the effigy in the center of the playa happened.  It&#;s an important part of the experience where everyone comes together, and is meant to have a more of a spiritual meaning behind it.  It was fantastic to witness everyone come together, and clap and howl while the effigy burned.  The atmosphere is hard to explain, but there&#;s something magical about it.

What I wasn&#;t aware of is that there are multiple burns on the 4th and 5th (final) days of Midburn.  I was under the impression that there was just ONE major burn to signify the end of the event, but I was happy to learn that there&#;s several more.

Midburn Tickets FAQ

Getting tickets to Burning Man in the U.S is no easy task, and I thought that it would be just as difficult for me to obtain a Midburn ticket (but that was not the case at all!).

I applied for the &#;International Sale&#;, which they have allotted tickets for attendees coming from abroad.  It was a super simple application process, and I just basically had to prove I didn&#;t live in Israel to get approved.

Midburn Israrl

Ticket cost: shekels ($ U.S.D)

*Important* &#; if you&#;re wanting to go to Midburn in the future, but didn&#;t get a ticket &#; then you should still make your way to Israel.  I probably saw over different people trying to sell tickets last minute, and I really think you won&#;t have a problem finding one if you want to go!

Just make sure to join the Facebook groups immediately and start interacting with the community.  This is going to be your best bet for finding a camp to join, finding a ride to the playa, and asking questions about the event.

My Overall Midburn Experience

When I first visited Israel during the summer of June &#;I missed Midburn by just a few days, and vowed to myself that I would return in to experience the madness.

Well, I&#;m so glad I did because it completely exceeded all of my expectations.

Midburn Israel

Even though the conditions were a bit harsh, and I was desperate for a long warm shower after 5 days in the desert &#; I really wasn&#;t ready to leave.  I feel like I was still getting into the groove out there, spending time with such an awesome group of new friends, and truly loving every minute of it.

This was my first Midburn &#; but I&#;ve got this strange feeling that I&#;ll be there for a whole lot more in the future.  I love Israel, I love Israeli&#;s, and I love the Israeli Burning Man community.

As the saying goes&#;&#;you never forget your first time&#;, and that is % true in this case. Thanks to everyone I had the pleasure of burning with in that dusty desert.  It was an experience of a lifetime, and I can&#;t wait to reunite with you again!


Thanks so much for reading!

In the Negev Desert in southern Israel every June, a familiar scene takes place -- thousands of revelers flock to the arid land for a five-day festival of music, art and self expression.

The event, called Midburn, is Israel's take on the famous Burning Man festival held annually in Nevada. It's the only event of its kind that is held in the Middle East.

Midburn is generally planned around the Hebrew holiday of Shavuot, also known as the Feast of Weeks. This year's festival began on May 28 and lasted until June 2.

Midburn follows Burning Man's code, known as the 'Ten Principles,' which include radical inclusion, gifting and civic responsibility.

The first Midburn festival was held in and was attended by roughly 3, people. Since gaining in popularity, 8, people attended the event. It's the second-largest Burning Man-related festival outside of the United States, after AfrikaBurn, which is held in South Africa.

Israel's Take on Burning Man: Where Radical Behavior Is Discouraged and Arabs Are Turned Away

I was unable to buy a ticket for Burning Man, the famous hippie festival in the Nevada desert. Actually, it hasn’t been a hippie festival for a long time. Mark Zuckerberg arrives by helicopter, the founders of Google are regular participants, and the person who got me interested in the whole deal is actually a Nobel laureate in chemistry, Michael Levitt, who a moment after winning, instead of talking to me about molecules, chose to share experiences and stories from the dust-covered event. And then he rushed to erase the photos from Facebook, because a partially nude Nobel laureate is a potential embarassment.

The guard outside the Free Love tent wondered about our relationship and explained that the place was designed for sex only and not for anything – and that includes foreplay

So I registered for the lottery, waited for the online window of opportunity, sat in front of the computer half an hour in advance, and found out that I couldn’t buy a ticket to the festival. I also gave up on the Midburn, the highly successful Israeli version that attracted over 10, people on the Shavuot holiday this year – mainly because people who travel to Nevada every year recommended that I first experience the real thing to maximize the experience.

And then I heard about the Contra Burn, an event with far less publicity, which has been taking place in Israel for the past three years during the period of the American Burning Man Festival (a nine-day event that ended Monday). A friendlier and less dusty version. One weekend, 1, people, an organized camping site between the Jordan River and Lake Kinneret, bathrooms, electricity and water and even a minimarket. Burning Man for beginners. Just what I needed.

And this time the organizers added a little twist: No photographs. Which means making everything far more “radical.” And in a world where if you didn’t take photos you didn’t do anything, it’s quite possible that from a modern philosophical perspective, this event is considered something that didn’t take place at all.

They referred me to Shiran, who is in charge of the media at Contra Burn. During our first conversation she sounded enthusiastic, but she stressed the prohibition against taking pictures. She also had one little question: Would they see my article before publication and be able to approve it? When I explained that there was no such possibility, she informed me that she had to check the feasibility of bringing in a journalist, and then she stopped answering and disappeared.

Send the "cousins" away

There was also the guy who ties girls to trees. People seem to forget that in the middle there’s a girl hanging with her head down, turning like a chicken on a rotisserie. And other girls wait in line to be next

In any case, it wasn’t too difficult to get a ticket. Mainly because there was a shortage of volunteers for guard duty at the “gate.” For shekels ($56) and a commitment to do guard duty for four hours, I was in. A few days before the event I arrived together with another 30 “gatekeepers” in Tel Aviv for a compulsory preparatory session. A young guy who took the whole issue too seriously read us the regulations for at least 40 minutes. The entire procedure could have been summed up in 10 minutes, but he was clearly enjoying himself.

I learned that in case the police arrived they had to be told that this is a “family event,” and under no circumstances should we talk about a production, which requires permits. And this event has only a “certain permit.” In other words, no real permit. They also warned us that quite a number of “cousins” – an Israeli word for Arabs – were likely to come, because the event takes place at the same time as Eid al-Adha (the “Feast of Sacrifice”). And those “cousins” should be told that this is a closed event. And most important: Once every shift we had to randomly choose someone entering the gate, tell him that he’s “the one thousandth participant,” and then “get happy with him – get him wet, roll him around in the sand.”

We arrived at the shores of the Kinneret after a stop to stock up, which turned out to be unnecessary. The fresh products that we planned to eat upon arrival didn’t survive the heat, even after less than an hour’s drive. The “gatekeeper” at the entrance asked if this was my first Burn event. I made a mistake and told the truth. He informed me, without much enthusiasm, that I had to get out of the car so he could “get happy with me.” I immediately changed my story and said that I meant it was my first time in the present location. It was obvious that we were both equally relieved. Nobody wants to get happy in this heat.

Everyone talked for hours about how special it is that just at the moment when they’re hungry, thirsty or need a lighter, someone comes and provides what they want. Nothing related to the fact that all during the festival, people walked around everywhere with food and drink and lighters

The participants in the event, the “Burners,” are divided into two groups: People from the theme camps (guys who shared food and equipment and set up a camp, usually adding some activity that’s open to the general public), and Free Campers, people like me who aren’t with any group or camp and set up their tents in the public areas between the camps.

At first I felt like a kind of parasite, but then I remembered my 4 A.M. guard duty and felt much better about myself. And in any case, I quickly got into “sharing” and “gifting.” Even that is no longer simple. Because when someone full of good intentions walked around with a huge bag of jelly snakes, half the festival participants explained to him that they were vegan and that “there’s gelatin in that.”

More talk about nudity and sex than nudity and sex

At some point you realize that you’re actually walking around in a gigantic buffet, minus the wedding. And if you have a cup and a plate handy, someone will always make sure to fill them up. Sometimes there’s some task on the way to a drink or a snack, like kissing the barman or getting a little spanking, or singing a karaoke song. But even that is avoidable, and the main chore is washing the non-disposal dishes. Because there’s this business with MOOP (Matter Out of Place, which is Burning Man’s designation for everything at the festival except the land, and which must be removed at the end) and the organizers’ desire to avoid garbage, although it’s a campsite with lots of garbage cans, which were emptied with reasonable frequency. And there were numerous water faucets.

The prohibition against photography was supposed to make the event more extreme, more “radical,” which is a delicate way of saying that there would be more nudity and sexual activity. And as happens at events of this type, there was much more talk about nudity and sex that there was nudity and sex. Maybe because the foreplay was a kind of downer: It included too many explanations about the limits of nudity (mainly a reminder that this is a public place, that there are minors at the event, and that by law undressing is prohibited, at least in the areas outside the “camps”). And the security briefing at the entrance to the compound that was designated for sexual activity eliminated whatever desire was left.

The above-mentioned compound is in a camp called Free Love. It was located right at the entrance to the festival area, near the clinic, which at a certain point became the air-conditioned tent where everyone goes to recuperate. The most clichéd joke among the volunteer medics and doctors was that they hoped no patient with a sexual disease entered the Free Love area instead of coming to them. I passed through Free Love twice. The first time a woman standing at the entrance reminded me that we had met a year ago at the Minzar bar in Tel Aviv, “and I got terribly drunk and you didn’t want to come up to my apartment, you’re looking at a girl who’s trashed and you ran away. That evening changed me a little, I realized that I have to stop getting into these situations.”

And if that wasn’t embarrassing enough, someone else said the meeting here between she and I was a real cosmic thing and he thought that we should enter the Dome together – the tent designated for group sex, with entry to couples only – to close a circle or something. And when she said she would be happy to, I was embarrassed and as it turned out I ran away again.

Sex inside, foreplay outside

The next day I returned, mainly because I felt it was an important part of my journalistic assignment. This time I came with a girl with whom I feel somewhat more comfortable. At the entrance to the Dome stood a guy with a list of regulations and began to brief and question me. He wondered about our relationship, checked that we weren’t drunk or high, explained that the place was designed for sex only and not for other things, and made it clear that other things include foreplay. That has to be done outside, inside you only do the thing itself. And if you want to do things with other people, you have to ask and receive permission. And you need permission even to look.

And only when we had stopped paying attention entirely, did he give us the entry permit: a pair of condoms. And if for a moment we weren’t sure that the passion had leaked out of us once and for all, the guy doing the briefing looked at us and said: “Maybe you’ll begin with foreplay outside the Dome? I suggest that you warm up a little and only then go inside, but it’s your decision.” We decided on another recuperation in the air-conditioned clinic, leaving the entire Dome to one couple who were inside at the time.

Aside from that, there was nudity. Not much, but there was – one or two people at most at any given moment. Most of the nudity was among those immersing themselves in the Jordan. To be more precise, among the women immersing themselves. There was far more female than male nudity. And that led to quite a few discussions. Someone propounded an entire theory to the effect that girls feel a greater need to celebrate their bodies, to shout that they’re fine with it, especially girls with a body of the kind you don’t see in fashion catalogues. Because girls from catalogues don’t have to do anything in order to be looked at.

This theory didn’t survive very long. There was nudity of all kinds here, including girls from catalogues. Like most of the participants in the event, I remained in a bathing suit. Maybe because there were very few nude people and I didn’t feel a need to be different. And the most deviant thing I did was to take part in a discussion about the ethics of urinating while immersing together in the Jordan. Because nobody had the strength to go all the way to the bathrooms, and everyone peed in the Jordan.

I spent the first day trying to understand what was going on and to find the main attractions. At a certain point that became the official shared activity of all the “Burn virgins,” the first-timers. We walked together from one camp to the next, from one party to another, from installation to installation, from workshop to workshop, looking for something, it wasn’t clear what. Following rumors. At some point you realize what the veterans already know: Nothing is happening.

The parties are no more that something between a class party and a neighborhood party (and singers Omer Adam and Eyal Golan are the winners here too), the various workshops remained insignificant, and the same was true of the game of truth or dare. (“You must demonstrate an act of BDSM that you’re familiar with.”) There were a few nice installations and a few harmless activities scattered all over the playa (the name for the area where the Burning Man takes place in Nevada, which was adopted here too): a corner where you look each other in the eyes for three minutes, a stand with a microscope connected to a screen, which enables you to see strange things that are inside people’s bodies, a photography corner that due to the prohibition on photos is actually an easel.

There was also some semi-artistic scenery: a wooden statue, hoops of lights that change color, a decorated lifeguard’s hut. Everything is very pretty, but nothing is very impressive or at all reminiscent of the lovely installations you see in pictures of the Burning Man or even the local Midburn. There’s a limit to how much people are willing to invest for three days.

The search for something interesting was led by David, a dentist from Jerusalem who immigrated from England 30 years ago. Five years ago he starting attending the Burn and he still gets excited about every activity and every party. He takes us to karaoke, then gets a signal that something’s happening in the heavy metal complex, or that we have to find the guy who brought an orgasm machine from Germany.

Chabad tent adjacent to the gays’ camp

In the tents there were mainly two generic discussions: about previous Burn events and about mind-altering substances, and then about the side effects of those substances. On the last night everyone sprawled next to the tents and talked for hours about how special it is that just at the moment when they’re hungry, thirsty or need a lighter, someone comes and provides what they want. Or how much they love the expression “the playa will provide,” which refers to magical forces. Nothing related to the fact that all during the festival, people walked around everywhere with food and drink and lighters.

There’s no point trying to characterize the participants. Professional hippies alongside accountants, families with children and serious potheads, even a Chabad tent, which was set up adjacent to the gays’ camp.

There was also the guy who ties girls to trees. He doesn’t just tie them, it’s a real art: with dozens of ropes wound around. Everyone is fascinated, people forget that in the middle there’s a girl hanging with her head down, and turning like a chicken on a rotisserie. And girls wait in line. They want to be tied.

There’s something unmediated about this event: Everyone talks to everyone, everyone touches everyone. Sweaty embraces are common, as are instant profound discussions. A girl stretches out her hand so I’ll help her enter the water with confidence. And then she chooses, it’s not clear why, to share with those around her the fact that she has returned to a friendly relationship with her ex, and they sleep together occasionally, and it really helped her to get over him.

On Shabbat afternoon, a moment before we fold it up, one redhead wondered aloud about the difference between this event and ordinary family camping at Lake Kinneret. And several people joined the discussion and mentioned the “sharing” and the “gifting.” But the redhead claimed that at family camping at the Kinneret they always give you what you need and share leftovers. Someone else mentions the prohibition on photography. And everyone agreed that it really upgraded the event. Not because it became more radical, but mainly because people didn’t walk around with their cell phones and weren’t busy staging mementos. And just then, on the banks of the nearby Jordan, several telephones switched to camera mode. And nobody said anything to them. Maybe because both the photographers and those being photographed were totally naked. Maybe because we all wanted proof that this festival really did take place.

Over the weekend, 70, people known as "burners" will descend on a remote swath of desert in Black Rock City, Nevada to dance, sweat, and find themselves at the Burning Man festival. Attendees will be treated to surreal art installations, workshops, and all-night parties.

Devotees of the decades-old festival have taken the free-spirited philosophy of Burning Man to their own countries and launched affiliated events where the same principles endure. Photos of these gatherings show they're more or less the same, despite being thousands of miles apart.

Let's take a closer look at three regional Burning Man festivals in the world.


This could be a photo of a Burning Man event anywhere in the world.

  • Critical Northwest (official site)

In , approximately $7, was distributed to multiple art projects, over $12, was awarded in Many of the core values of Critical Northwest are borrowed from Burning Man, and the same short, memorable terms are used for them. Due to the fact that the event is held in the highest population density center of the Pacific Northwest region, including Idaho, Oregon, and portions of British Columbia, the event's environment is significantly different than the Black Rock Desert. The event has been held on the west side of the Cascade mountain range in the Pacific Northwest rain forest. Consequently, the size of the event with the number of participants has been limited significantly simply for the fact that there are few venues capable of holding several individuals for a week-long event in the Northwest. Attendance has been variable over the years, with almost people in , and an average of participants when hosted at LARC. Capacity at the new permanent venue is set at for , with ability to grow well beyond 1,Additionally, unlike Burning Man where the central effigy of a glowing neon man stays essentially unaltered from year to year (with alteration to its base and other design elements), the Critical Massive event may not have a central effigy, or indeed a last-night event. Usually, fire performances and other exhibitions occur on the last night of the event, but are limited in scope and size due to fire restrictions, especially in the forest-fire prone mountains.
