Circus Combustus & The Funk Pirates are a group of Atlanta artists and Burning Man regulars who create a large-scale fire carnival area with nightly fire circus shows at regional festivals for all attendees to enjoy.


If you are fortunate enough to stumble across Circus Combustus on the playa or at a regional Burning Man event, there are many delights in which to partake.  We provide nightly performances of fiery acts, acrobats and aerialists, jugglers and dancers.  But it doesn't stop there.  Here are just a few of the things you can find at our camp...


Each night we entertain the burn community with our troupe of fire performers, acrobats, aerialists, musicians and comedians.  Our show should not be missed.


We create an environment that encourages climbing.  No better way to see the burn than at the top of one of our structures.


We like to party! and so should you. Come join us for our Dark & Stormy Pirate party celebrating our sister camp the Funk Pirates.


Ever wanted to learn to spin fire? do acroyoga? spin poi? make a fire cannon? do trapeze? Come to our camp and we'll show you how.


You can find us roaming around the playa on the Funk Pirate ship Fly me to the Moon.  There is no lack of funk to keep you dancing all night long.


We've got you covered if you like rum.  We specialize in Dark and Stormies in honor of our sister camp the Funk Pirates. Roll the wheel of misfortune and grab a drink.  Aaarrgh!
