Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to bring a tent and sleeping bag?

You will need both a tent and a sleeping bag, plus anything else to make your sleep more comfortable. It will be warm in Anji in May, but it still gets cold at night and it might still rain so come prepared! Check out our list of what to bring for more information.

Will there be tent rentals on-site or from Dragon Burn?

There are no tent rentals this year. In the past this has caused the Burn to lose some of it’s non-commercial feel. It’s perfectly fine to rent a tent from somewhere else and bring that to the Burn.

How do I get to the Dragon Burn site?

There will be buses leaving Shanghai on Friday 26th at 8pm, and on Saturday at 8am and 8pm. If you want to take one of these buses you must purchase a combined ticket or a separate bus ticket before May 14th.

If you would prefer to make your own way to the site or are coming from outside of Shanghai, check out our guide to getting to the site.

When do buses come back to Shanghai?

Buses will run throughout the day on Tuesday 30th May, picking up from Anji and returning to Shanghai. You must have a bus ticket to use these buses.

How much space is there for camping?

Last time we were at Anji we camped 200 participants with very little overflow. This year we have designated more camping space and are aiming to fit 400 participants on the site. There are designated areas for the theme camps and plenty of space for everyone else to camp, but if you show up late you may need to get a bit cosy.

Is there quiet camping?

If you’re showing up on the Saturday evening then it is unlikely you will find a quiet spot to camp. We will reserve some space in the quieter areas for people coming with young children. We will also have a quiet time from early morning until around midday during which sound camps will not be allowed to play music.

Can I bring my pet?

We are animal lovers ourselves and know they are cute and fun to play with. But in a multi-participant event, they can get lost and, unlike humans, they don’t use toilets or abide by the ten principals. No animals except service animals will be allowed at the event.
