Schloss 💗 Schönburn🔥Wiki

There will be another Schönburn this year, and the dates are September 19–23, 2018!
Sleepy Bird Membership sale is NOW OPEN (Sunday 27th May 2018 6:00pm) CET on Burner tickets.


By joining this magnificent event, you only get access to a castle.

An empty castle!

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 purely non-profit, meaning that all 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!

What about tickets?

There are no classic “tickets”. This event is fully participative and non-profit, therefore to join this adventure you have to register for a membership. Normal membership sale will start on Sunday 27th May 2018 6:00pm CET on

Click HERE for all information about registration & membership! Applications for low-income memberships are now open.

Your membership will give you access to the Wiki, the dreams platform, the castle grounds, and to one of the accommodation possibilities. Also: water, toilets, power.
A big empty playground to be filled with life!

Good to know:

  • Acquired memberships will be transferable, but everyone attending the event will be required to go through registration.
  • The castle and the grounds are not wheelchair accessible. However, the bathroom close to Room 8 is accessible so bunk bed accommodation is possible and we collectively will do our best to help you if you need assistance.

Collaborative Tools

Subject to changes in 2018.
The following are the tools we would like to 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!)
  • Slack This is the main communications tool between the core orga team and fellow Schönburners. Use it to communicate with us, other burners and organise stuff! You can sign yourself up here.
  • 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) we would like to do so through a dreams platform. Some suitable ideas for dreams (but this is just a short list of examples, do not feel restrained by it!):
    • Art Projects
    • Large Performances
    • Installations
    • Feeding Schönburners
    • Shitopia
    • Great soundsystems
