Burning Man NL Summer Event: Where the Sheep Sleep 2018

For the 3rd time in a row, Burning Man NL invites you to our summer event Where the Sheep Sleep.

From July 26th to 30th 2018, the lush green fields of the east part of Holland welcome you for a transformative weekend full of art, performances, music, creativity, connection and surprises.

Because it’s YOU who makes the event, we will soon open up all forms for applying your theme camp, art, temple, gate or other ideas so you can share anything you wish.

Stay updated here, or through our newsletter, facebookpage and eventpage.


Start your engines & light your fire: It’s time to secure your participation in WtSS18 by getting your necessary tickets (weekend/campingtickets, RV/campervan tickets, kids tickets (12-18 yrs) and/or parking tickets) a.s.a.p.

There is a small amount of Low Incometickets available. If you want to apply for a Low Incometicket please mail to tickets@burningman.nl.



Where the Sheep Sleep is a co-creative event, where you, the participant are the essential part of the beauty, fun and succes! Without your creativity, art, performances and theme camp ideas… There simply isn’t a Burning Man event.

We want to hear from you!

In the meantime, the planning & organizing of such a great event is picking up pace quickly. Oh my, the things that need to be done before we can spend this fantastic weekend together!

As you know, the event is entirely driven by volunteers. So we need YOU to make this happen! Step up and change the game:

  • Communication (Co-)Lead and a Designer /DTP needed. Make sure people know what there is to know, educate, update, tease, attract and plan. Facebook, newsletters, website – it’s all in your hands. Please write comms@burningman.nl if you have the time and means to assist us.
  • Eventteam volunteers/(co-)leads, for Production, Theme Camps, Art, Performances, Music, Build, Gate/Greeters, Ticketing, LNT (Leave No Trace), Education, Info-hub, Rangers, Welfare… many options! Check them out and email us when you want an important role in getting this years WtSS better than next years 😉
  • For all other volunteering shifts pre- and during event, registration will open up later this year. (Unfortunately the system we used last year, Vroom, decided to stop its services so our Volunteering Chief is looking into other options…).

Remember: everybody needs a ticket, also if you volunteer!


Events of Burning Man Netherlands exist solely by the artistry, creativity and radical participation of the community, existing of people of all ages. To ensure and protect the quality of the Burning Man core principles and ethos during our events, we have chosen to grow the community organically. Just like our big brother in the United States, which started small on a San Francisco beach.

Burning Man is not a festival. It’s a catalyst for creative culture in the world.
