What Is It?

Get dressed up, step through your screen and get ready to dive into the digital dust - because AfrikaBurn are eCompressing! Join them as they embark on another journey into new territories. This time, eCompression offers everyone a way to decorate, dress up - and decompress.

Following on the success of HomeBurn, this is the next in their series of online gatherings offering an opportunity to connect, collaborate and get creative, from the comfort of wherever you are during the lockdown.

The lineup is not yet finalised, however, you can expect multiple live-streamed rooms, each with a fantastic range of performances, music, burns, discussions, show and tells, and much more. There'll also be a best dressed contest! You're invited to dress up in that fabulous outfit you couldn't wear in Tankwa Town this year and they'll be hosting a Best Dressed session that will see the crowd response decide who the winner is.

When Is It?

Saturday, 04 July 2020 from 10:00 until Sunday, 05 July 2020 at 02:00.
