We put participants’ safety above all and therefore it is very important that you read the following information if you plan to make use of electricity.
It is strictly forbidden to make use of private generators of any kind. The use of electricity during the event is possible by reserving service from the event’s official electricity provider only, according to a predetermined price list. The use of generators without the explicit approval of the event’s production team will result in expulsion from the event and may jeopardize the entire event.

Midburn will have a complete electrical grid, powered by Biodiesel generators in order to reduce emissions and minimize environmental impact. The grid is laid out so that every spot in the city can be connected.

You can also make the order after you settle down, but you should consider a certain waiting time, as the provider will serve the pre-ordered reservations first.
