We’re an ever-expanding group of Burners and enthusiasts for avant-garde online experiences. We met each other at criss-crossing online parties, collectivised, and we’ve shared adventures, became friends, and have been organising and helping others organise parties throughout the lockdown.
We invite you to join a fresh, and expanding community as we build our contribution to the virtual burn this year…
Some of our team
We’re working on this as volunteers, and are supported by 80+ artists, performers, technologists, intellectuals, DJs, musicians, creators and polymaths from our online party collective.
Leading on the SparkleVerse Tech Platform are The Sparkle Team:
The SparkleVerse Online Burn is a fork of SparkleVerse – an open source social spaces platform & startup.
Ed is a UK based tech entrepreneur, student of memory palaces and amateur philosopher of parties. You can hear some of his thoughts on Burning Man in this fragment of a podcast recorded with Tim Ferriss. He’s helping with the product and community sides of the project.
Our Philosophy & Approach
SparkleVerse Online Burn is based on a philosophical interpretation of what the burn feels like.
We’re harnessing the tools of the internet to co-create a landscape of experiences you can explore – so participants can go on journeys featuring fun adventures, special moments, connection, stimulation and microdoses of magic.

The SparkleVerse Online Burn is a not-for-profit project. Our tickets are by way of donation, with donations primarily shared between the Burning Man organisation, Art Grants & development/server/hosting costs.
