Nest 2018

Nest is an officially recognised regional event associated with Burning Man.



Burning Nest 2020 has been cancelled due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Please read our full statement here.


At Nest, you don’t buy a ticket, you contribute to the feathering of Nest with your membership. Without our member contributions, we won’t have a Nest.


A beautiful part of the English countryside on an independent site near Exeter. The exact location for Nest will be shared with membership holders only, well in advance of the event


At Nest we have no visitors, no spectators. We only have participants. Our Nest is determined by the participants who create it. And all members are invited to be part of the creation.
