Code of Conduct

While we strive to keep the number of hard and fast rules that we have to a minimum, certain types of behavior serve only to harm other participants or the event itself. The following types of behavior will not be tolerated, and can result in ejection from the event or banning from one or more future FAI-sponsored events. Nothing herein is intended to or shall waive the right of FAI to ban or restrict access by an individual or entity as it may determine, in its sole discretion, is warranted.

You can file a conduct complaint at

Consent violations of an aggressive or sexual nature.

This includes any kind of physical contact with the body of another without their express consent, regardless of intent.


If someone asks you to leave them alone, and you continue to engage with them or follow them around, you will be asked to leave. Verbal assaults, especially of a continued, aggressive, and/or sexual nature constitute harassment.

Endangering others. 

Do not do things that will put others in serious danger. Please note that FAI cannot help you if you are personally sued by a participant that you thought gave consent. Do not bring items to an FAI event that could endanger others, such as guns, explosives, fireworks, unsafe fire art, etc. This section also includes non-consensual intoxication.

Entering an FAI event without invitation. 

All participants, staff, Board Members, landowners, etc. gain entry to our events by purchasing tickets, using a pass that is specifically negotiated (with regard to landowners), or as a vendor under contract with FAI. Any other entry will be considered trespassing.

Destruction, using, or taking of property. 

If it is not yours, leave it alone, unless you have the consent of the owner of the property. If you inadvertently damage another's property, that is a matter to be resolved between you and the property owner.


Online Conduct

The purpose of the Alchemy and Euphoria Facebook groups is to be a channel to communicate information about the burns.  They are moderated by the Event Committee.  We allow others to post to the groups, but only when those posts are relevant to the burns and when it does not interfere with the primary purpose of getting information out.

Posts should be directly related to burns.  As we get closer to the event, we limit the number of posts so that relevant information is not hard to find.  We will block people who are abusive or cause conflicts and delete posts that cause confusion.

Some posts are never allowed and posting them may result in being banned:

  • Posts of a commercial nature ( No promoting for-profit events, buying and selling things)

  • Posts soliciting or encouraging illegal activities.

  • Posts that are likely to offend or harass others.

  • Posts intended to confuse or deceive the community  ( No "burns cancelled" posts. )

There are a few things we don't ban outright, but we discourage:

  • Stale jokes ( VIP Tickets, Daft Punk Shows, etc.)

  • Posts without much content ( "Yay I got a ticket!", "I can't wait for the burn!", "I want to hug all the burners")  

  • Posts about buying or selling tickets (There's a separate Facebook Group for that: )

A Note On Facebook Accounts

The Euphoria Facebook group is a closed group.  In general, we will approve most people to join, but we try to block spammer and bot accounts.  There are a few things that are generally red flags for us:

  • Accounts with an obviously fake name

  • Accounts based in far away countries  ( we get lots of spam accounts from Africa, Asia and the Middle East)

  • Accounts with most of their content in a foreign language

  • Accounts with profile pics that are not people or all celebrities

If you think your account was blocked incorrectly, email
