Survival Guide 2022
Please find our Survival Guide with the most important information here:
The Austrian government has not put any restrictions or entry requirements into place for events, and thus we will not do so either. The pandemic situation is also relatively good: while infection numbers are still elevated, the current trend is decreasing and the strong summer wave caused by the Omicron variant has likely generated significant natural immunity in the population: https://covid19-dashboard.ages.at/?l=en
However, we still strongly encourage everyone who can to be cautious in the last days before the burn, to get tested a day or two before arriving on site, and certainly NOT coming if you have respiratory symptoms! We will have free antigen tests available at the gate if you did not manage to get tested. We trust your Radical Self-Reliance, but expect your best Communal Effort.
Code of Conduct & Consent at Schönburn
We now have a Code of Conduct, which each participant needs to accept to be part of Schönburn. This will be part of the purchasing procedure on Pretix, and we strongly recommend everyone to read this with care as it forms the basis for our harmonious co-creation:
This is part of our brand new consent guidelines and procedures (which we have shamelessly partly borrowed from Nowhere). In this context, the Austrian Burners Association is constituting a Consent Committee that will be tasked with dealing with all things consent at and between our events.
By joining this magnificent event, you only get access to a burn.
An empty burn!
There will be no music, no performances, no artwork, no workshops, no food, no drinks, no party — unless WE bring it with us! Every participant is a co-creator, filling this unique playground with life, creativity and all those magical ideas that are just waiting to be realised.
The event is non-profit, meaning that the income from membership sales that is not used to cover the basic costs of the location will be used to make your dreams of music, art, entertainment, catering… happen!
Notably, at Böllerbauer there are no dormitories and thus everyone camps in tents (or camper vans).

How to get involved
Schönburn needs YOU!
We want and need you to participate to make this event real and beautiful.
We are using a couple of tools and platforms to make Schönburn reality and give every participant the possibility to co-create.
The following list presents the tools use to make this event happen. They are all open to participation, in fact we highly recommend you join:
- Wiki (hey, psst, you are looking at it!) The Wiki can be edited by every registered participant! Information can be added, changed or corrected. This is a collaborative information platform for everyone! (Note: you may need to find the “Edit this page” button in side navi.)
- Dream platform: as described above, the event is an empty canvas ready to be filled with ideas, art, projects, workshops, performances, dj-sets, happenings. As in most burn events these will magically find their way to the castle and happen. But if you have a larger project in mind and you would like either or both the community and financial support (Art Grants) you should register your project on the dreams platform.
