The "Ambient Drummers" are a collection of drummers that help create atmosphere at the foot of the Man on the night of the Burn.

As an Ambient Drummer and ‘virgin’ burner in 2013, I viewed the man-burn from inside the performer's circle, after supporting fire-dancers.

In 2014, 2015, and 2016 I also participated in this ritual, by walking in the Luminferous Procession: drummers, LampLighters and fire-stilt-walkers who transfer the fire from Center Camp Cauldron to the Great Circle.
