First batch SOLD OUT

Oct 17 2014

The regular priced tickets have sold out. There are still €35 (inclusive of a €5 donation to the Derry/Londonderry Temple Project) for sale. Still, not to worry, we will be releasing a second batch of the regular tickets shortly. Please watch this space and indeed the Irish burner facebook page for updates.

El wire workshop

Oct 17 2014

If you would like to learn how to repair/solder/extend or otherwise work with el-wire there will be a workshop tomorrow 17th October in to teach you how to do just that. It costs €20 for which you will receive 2 metres and a controller. Oh and also three hours of guidance :) It's happening in Chancery Lane in Dublin city from 14:00 to 17:00 with a slight chance of pints thereafter. Not there after per say but in a reasonably close craft beer bar all going well. Here's more details.

To join the club all you have to do is attend the Irish Decom in November.

Tickets and Participation

Sep 23 2014

All performers must purchase their own tickets. There, I've said it. Each year this comes up as it's somewhat counterintuitive. The Decom is not a normal festival. The performers are not hired to entertain us. Rather they are us. Therein lies the key. We are participating. All of the event organisers; the people who work the gate, the folk behind the ticketing, the poor sods who spend months in advance building the giant structures just to see their work torched at the end of the night (mostly just to see it torched ;) ), well, we also buy tickets...

Club membership

If you would like to join our newly formed Irish Burner Club please add your details below. We will keep you informed on club events and general goings on.

AGM tonight

Oct 15 2014

Unfortunately some of you haven't heard mostly because facebook news hasn't been showing up in your feeds. The first, annual AGM of the Irish Burners Club will take place tomorrow 15th of Oct in Against The Grain on Aungier St.
More info here.

Ticket Sales

Oct 9 2014

Tickets will be on sale Friday 10th October at 14:00 Irish time. There'll be a wee link up there on the left called Tickets. It will take you to where you need to go. The tickets will cost €30 for a maximum of two per order. Please take a look through that post there about the club we're setting up. By attending the event you will be automatically joined at the hip with said organisation. This is for awesome reasons and rest assured we're not going to spam the shit out of you for years thereafter.

Also, don't bring glass to the castle. Cans, flaggons, flasks, sacks, bag o'wines only. Don't be a glasshole.

Irish Burner Community as a club, wanna take part?

15/10/2014 20:00

Quite a lot happened at the last meeting. For one we’ve decided to form a club. Hooray! Due to the transient nature of many burners, there is currently no official group that represents the Irish Burner community. We need a more consolidated organisation. To this end a club has been formed under the name Irish Burner Community. The site will remain the primary point of information about the newly formed club. We will have our first AGM on Wednesday 15th October in Against the Grain at 20:00 to ratify the first acting committee of the IBC.

Why the Irish decom?

Sep 23 2014

Well for lots of reasons really. The main one for us is to connect with the rest of the Irish burner community. We started something together in the desert and we have no intention of leaving it there. For you? If you are interested in learning more about Burning Man culture this is the best place in Ireland to do it. You will interact with art, music and the purveyors of these vital elements on a level platform. The "acts" are not going to be aloof but very present and indeed will be the audience to whatever you subsequently want to express.

Decom Org Meeting

Sep 17 2014

Hello there. If you would like to be an integral part of the 2014 Irish decompression, I have great news; you can! We're having an open meeting to start at 20:00 in the Bernard Shaw next Tuesday the 23rd September. Call in for a beer and piece of pizza and see if you can catch an open role. We need people to handle the gate/greeters, volunteers, tear down, effigy, ticketing, accounts, decoration, insurance, coordinating lifting of the heavy item etc. If you have any particular experience or skill which you think might be valuable please speak up.
