Information about Where the Sheep Sleep 2017
Burning Man NL presents the second edition of our summer event Where the Sheep Sleep at the Veluwe (in The Netherlands).
Where the Sheep Sleep (WtSS) is a participatory event from July 27 (3pm) untill July 31 (noon) 2017 and will not be open to spectators.
The purpose of “Where the Sheep Sleep” is to dream together and create a reality that we won’t forget. A reality rooted in the values expressed by the Ten Principles of Burning Man, a reality manifested through art, communal effort, and innumerable individual acts of self-expression.
Unlike many festivals, Where the Sheep Sleep is an entirely participant-driven event. The participants make the event what it is. We have no spectators, only co-creators at the event.
We follow the 10 principles as a guideline for how we behave against each other as participants. These are not rules, but rather a source of inspiration and a guideline that you are supposed to take to you heart and interpret for yourself.
Ticketsales for the event is expected to open at May 10, 2017 to our event members, who will receive an email with all necessary info. Event members are not guaranteed a ticket, but only will be offered a first chance to obtain tickets. If you are not an event member of BM NL, you will have to wait untill the open sales which opens May 18th (if there’s tickets left).
For press & media
Burning Man Netherlands – “Where the Sheep Sleep” is a private event, and photographers, videographers and documentarians wishing to capture images intended for public distribution are required to submit a proposal and sign agreements prior to the event.
Approval to shoot images at Where the Sheep Sleep is not approval to exhibit or distribute.
Completed projects are reviewed by the Burning Man NL Press Team and receive written permission before they can be distributed publicly. In short, no public use of any image may be made without this written consent.
To apply to cover this Burning Man NL event, you can soon (but not yet) submit a Media Project Proposal. Deadline to apply for a professional media project is Tuesday July 18. We strongly recommend registering as early as possible after the form opens up. We limit the number of professional cameras allowed at Where the Sheep sleep and projects are approved on a rolling basis, so you’ll have a better chance of receiving approval if you apply well before the deadline.
We only grant permission to a small percentage of media projects. By providing the most detailed information possible on your registration form, you can help us make an informed decision about your project.
Thank you! We look forward hearing from you!
