It just so happens I stumbled upon the website for this shin-dig about a year ago. I would LOVE to go, it seems like it is a mini Burning Man, but I live in the states, and can't afford it. Anywho, here is the site address--- https://www.gathering.co.nz/

Hmm. I just saw from the FAQ:Naked Flames The rule banning naked flames includes portable gas stoves such as a primus - and any device where the flame is exposed. We are considering providing supervised cooking areas, but naked flames (of any kind) are too dangerous to the area. Does this mean no fire poi?-p.
