Amber Burn

Amber Burn is a regional Burning Man community gathering in Lithuania that is organized and run entirely by volunteers, following the ten principles of Burning Man. We all, including YOU, create a more expressive and exciting reality together.​

As a 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 individuals to rely on their inner resources and creativity and without each of our contributions, the event will not happen.


This summer, we will build a temporary Amber Burn City again; it will stand for five days, from July 5 to July 9. We need everybody’s help to fill the streets with life, workshops, costumes, performances, and art. It’s a co-creative gathering where we focus on community, self-expression, and self-reliance. Join and make it happen!


The soul of our temporary city is Theme Camps. They are its vital energy. Whatever your passion is—music, art, spirituality, food, learning, sports, recycling, dancing, or subcultures—connect with like-minded individuals and offer an interactive experience to your fellow citizens.


Let’s celebrate life!

Does anyone know what the path is to being immensely free? And what does “cosmic” actually mean? Are we cosmic and excited to build our city once again?


Obviously, even more than excited, because the theme is COSMIC FREEDOM. A powerful and vastly expansive tool to play with. You know what they say – the sky’s the limit…


So, let’s gather this summer to celebrate our community, our creations, and the whole universe that is around and within each of us. The dream is alive.


Burning Man co-founder Larry Harvey wrote the Ten Principles as guidelines for the newly-formed Regional Network in 2004. The principles are: radical inclusion, gifting, decommodification, radical self-reliance, radical self-expression, communal effort, civic responsibility, leaving no trace, participation, and immediacy.


They were crafted not to dictate how people should act but to reflect on the community’s ethos and culture as they had organically developed since the event’s inception. These principles are the guidelines for how we, as a community, are building the world for ourselves and how we live in our daily lives.

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.

Anyone may be a part of Burning Man. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community.

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

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 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.

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.

Burning Man encourages the individual to discover, exercise and rely on his or her inner resources.

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.

We value civil society. Community members who organize events should assume responsibility for public welfare and endeavor to communicate civic responsibilities to participants. They must also assume responsibility for conducting events in accordance with local, state and federal laws.

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 endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them.
