12th to 13th June, 2020
The Firedance Festival is a special showcase of Baining culture in the East New Britain Province.
Guests are transported to Gaulim village deep in the mountains of East New Britain. Here they are welcomed with rare performances capturing Baining tribal myth and lore. Tribes from all over Baining will be a part of this rousing event.
As night descends on Gaulim, towering bonfires will be lit for one of the most spectacular dances ever witnessed in Papua New Guinea, where initiated Baining men wearing extraordinary masks and enchanted by forest spirits dance evocatively through the flames and embers.
The Firedance Festival is organised by South Sea Horizons in partnership with the Baining community of East New Britain. South Sea Horizons proudly offer Responsible Tours that encourages the protection of the unique cultures we have in PNG.
