Just like the Baltic sea gifting us amber, Amber Burn is coming to you as a gift from those who have been part of the Baltic Burn 2019 and Amber Burn 2020!
Amber Burn is a locally organized burn in Lithuania that is run entirely by volunteers following the 10 core principles of Burning Man – self-expression, self-reliance, community, no commerce, leave no trace, participation, inclusion, gifting, co-operation and immediacy. We all, including YOU, will create a more expressive and interesting reality.
As part of the Burning Man family, we are a community where everyone is welcome. No prerequisites exist for participation. It’s an environment that encourages the individual to rely on their inner resources and creativity.
Are You ready to become a part of Amber Burn?
we burn in
This summer, again, in a secret location, we will build a temporary city that will stand for 4 days (July 8-11, 2021) and will then disappear without a trace! We want to make it bigger and brighter and we need your help to fill the streets with life. The soul of our city is inspired by the Theme Camps. They are its vital energy and are entirely your creation. So whatever your passion might be – music, art, spirituality, food, learning, sports – connect with likeminded individuals and offer together an interactive experience to your fellow citizens. Let them play and enjoy!
THE 10 PRINCIPLES OF BURNING MAN
The community is guided by 10 principles of Burning Man - radical inclusion, gifting, decommodification, radical self-reliance, radical self-expression, communal effort, civic responsibility, leaving no trace, participation, and immediacy. These principles are not the rules - they are the guidelines for how we, as a community, can build the world and ourselves.
Burning Man co-founder Larry Harvey wrote the Ten Principles as guidelines for the newly-formed Regional Network, in 2004. They were crafted not as a dictate of how people should be and act, but as a reflection of the community’s ethos and culture as it had organically developed since the event’s inception.
Our community values creative cooperation and collaboration. We strive to produce, promote and protect social networks, public spaces, works of art, and methods of communication that support such interaction.
We value civil society. Community members who organize events should assume responsibility for public welfare and endeavour to communicate civic responsibilities to participants. They must also assume responsibility for conducting events in accordance with local, state and federal laws.
Anyone may be a part of Burning Man. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community.
Burning Man is devoted to acts of gift giving. The value of a gift is unconditional. Gifting does not contemplate a return or an exchange for something of equal value.
Our community respects the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We clean up after ourselves and endeavour, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them.
In order to preserve the spirit of gifting, our community seeks to create social environments that are unmediated by commercial sponsorships, transactions, or advertising. We resist the substitution of consumption for participatory experience.
Our community is committed to a radically participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change can occur only through the medium of deeply personal participation. We achieve being through doing. Everyone is invited to work. Everyone is invited to play.
Burning Man encourages the individual to discover, exercise and rely on his or her inner resources.
Immediate experience is the most important touchstone of value in our culture. We seek to overcome barriers that stand between us and a recognition of our inner selves. No idea can substitute for this experience
Radical self-expression arises from the unique gifts of the individual. No one other than the individual or a collaborating group can determine its content. It is offered as a gift to others. In this spirit, the giver should respect the rights and liberties of the recipient.

What is the Amber Burn?
Why is it burning?
Because it feels good to burn stuff.
It feels good to build something significant and then set it free with no attachment.
Feel free to bring whatever you want to let go,
whatever it is;
a thought, a symbol or a habit;
Give it a shape and feed it to flames!
Is there a participation fee?
Every participant, including organizers, volunteers, performers, and artists are contributing to cover the costs of the event by buying a ticket. Every cent of it is used to build conscious, zero-waste infrastructure, cover the organizational costs and support art! However, any use of money during the event is prohibited. It’s a gifting economy, try it, you’ll come out richer.
What is a gifting economy?
Give for the love of giving.
What do I need to bring?
It is an outdoor camping event with no vending on site. You have to bring enough water and food for the three days for the experience to be most pleasant! As we talk about gifting, be sure to bring enough for yourself and your friends. Sharing is caring! The extensive survival guide is coming soon!
When will we burn?
The gathering is planned on July 8-11, 2021. However, we are following the restrictions and situation due to pandemics so the dates might change.
Where is it happening?
Amber Burn is happening in Lithuania, but exact location is secret and will be kept secret until the last moment – only registered participants will get the information.
Why do I need to apply for entry?
I have an idea for a fire sculpture, art installation, workshop, etc, is it ok for me to do this?
