KiwiburnHunterville, New Zealand

New Zealand’s answer to Burning Man is all about self-exploration, collective living, creativity and, well, burning things. This eco-friendly paddock party is full of free spirits, art installations and nude strangers happy to share a hug. You're sure to have your fair share of hippie-inspired conversations as you mingle with the festival's open-minded crown. Who knows, you might even find the answer to all the world's problems while staring into the flames.
