How to use the limited English version

On this page we continuously compile all the info we have already translated to English. It is more a pile of notes than a structured site. We know that this is not the best way to do a multilingual site - but it is a way to get online everything very quickly.  

HOW TO USE: 

  • If you are looking for something specific, use search function on this Page.

  • The English version does NOT contain all info - try to use the Hungarian version and your browser's translate function.

  • Rely on your burner sense and ask questions in the Juhé Burn Facebook group.

How to get there by car?

Go with GPS to "Zomba", then make sure to follow this description with pictures. If you use GPS only you are likely to end up in a cornfield.

How to get to Juhé Burn?

There is no public transportation directly to the site - being a bit remote is part of what we are looking for. Here are the recommended options:

  • Drive your own car and offer your available spots to community members if possible.

  • Rideshare. Someone implementing a spreadsheet or some means of communication would be GREAT (#doocracy), in the mean time use this group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/juheburn) or the Facebook event discussion (https://www.facebook.com/events/1939586792956665/). We don't know which will work better, depends on the community.

  • Use carpool platforms such as Bla Bla Car (https://www.blablacar.hu) and Oszkár (https://www.oszkar.com). Find a ride to Zomba, Kisdorog, Bonyhád or Szekszárd - in this order of preference. Bonyhád and Szekszárd most likely to work. Then ask someone to get you from there and drive you to the event site.

  • Take public transportation to Szekszárd, then ask a member of the community to drive you to the event site.

  • If there are people requiring this and willing to participate in organizing, we could have a volunteer "on call" during peak times to give people a ride from nearby towns.

Weather

It IS a Survival event, but compared to some others you can expect easier weather. Event will happen no matter rain or cold, prepare. We need some luck end of September as it may be something like summer or something like winter. Still, nights should definitely not go below 0. It could be that minimums are around 10-15 degrees if we are in luck or 3-6 if we are less lucky. There may be rain but we do not expect snow or strong wind as the area has a somewhat protected microclimate.

Toilettes

Toilettes are one of the few things we organize through our orga-team. We will have 3 beautiful compost toilets onsite and additionally dedicated areas where you can pee.

Electricity

Please bring your own electricity. In very very limited amounts we may be able to put you on the grid, but only if agreed in advance. Try to share your electricity with other teams and place your generators considering noise, exhaust and being a good neighbour.

Cooking

Please bring your own camp mini kitchen if possible, we strongly recommend that everyone joins a camp especially if you travel internationally.


However there will be a cooking camp who plan to provide the gift of bringing equipment so that camps and participants can use it. It is a theme camp, so no guarantees.

Leave No Trace

You will be able to deposit selectively collected metal (cans) and plastic (PET, packaging) onsite. You will be able to burn paper and wood in burn barrels onsite. Please pack out the rest and dispose of it with love.

Please be a champion at Leave No Trace and help make participants aware of MOOP, etc. Burning Man's Leave No Trace practices are new to most local participants and this is an important time to root our culture of exceptional Leave No Trace. 

Is it possible to put up a hammock?

Putting a hammock up in trees is definitely possible and there are some heart warming spots for hammock lovers - both quite and close to life. Trees provide some limited, but not full rain protection.

Is it possible to sleep onsite in my vehicle? 😊

You can sleep in your vehicle, but this means you will be sleeping in the parking lot, 1-3 minutes walk from Juhécity life. In this area we ask you to be quiet due to a neighbour with a small child being closer.

There may be 2-3 onsite spots available for RV's who provide a bit of visually appealing community space - such as a small sitting area sometimes gifting chai.  

How far will my tent be from my car?

Walking distance between parking and the average camping spot is 1-3 minutes, possibly more for late arrivals.


If you need to unload stuff you can unload it at a point with a shorter (half minute) walking distance. Ask at Gate.
