Cape Town - Northern Cape’s Stonehenge Farm in the Tankwa Karoo was once again transformed into a fiery spectacle of culture and art at the annual AfrikaBurn.

A gathering to celebrate and unleash creative expression, participants integrate a variety of art, music, spectacular performances, weird and wonderful costumes and burning structures, in a week’s-long festival.

“AfrikaBurn’s aim is to be radically inclusive and accessible to anyone,” says the event on its website.

A Festival like no other, AfrikaBurn says “Nothing is for sale but ice at the event”.

“There are no vendors, no advertising or branding. It just doesn’t fit in. It’s not even a barter economy – it’s a decommodified zone with a gift economy,” it adds.

The Festival that’s “about giving without expecting anything in return” closed on Sunday with a myriad of photos and videos showing the colourful originality of this one-of-a-kind event. Take a look:
