Burning Man Ticket Breakdown
Burning Man 2015 takes place August 30th – September 7th in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada. Burning Man is a unique experience in which participants join in the effort to co-create Black Rock City: a temporary metropolis dedicated to art and community. Many different groups of people, from CEOs to DJs, attend and enjoy the many offerings of Black Rock City.
Many people, whose wallets were not as large, were thrown this year with tickets for the initial pre-sale started at a whopping $800. However, there are other options for those who cannot shell out that high of a price. Shown below is a complete breakdown of the ticketing options for Burning Man along with their starting dates and prices.
The $800 pre-sale price is aimed at the die hard Burners who must attend and don’t mind using the extra cash of their ticket to help fund those who can get into the Low Income Ticket Program. There are only 4,000 of these tickets available.
The Directed Group Sale is meant for specific collaborative groups who are in the Burning Man community. These tickets are for the infrastructure volunteers and other groups who ensure the success of key Burning Man elements. There are 20,000 of these tickets available.
Next is the individual sale which is how most Burners get their tickets. Tickets in this phase are priced at $390 which is pretty similar to any of the other 3 day festivals in the US. There are 40,000 of these tickets.
Finally there is the OMG Sale which is targeted at all those last minute decision makers. There are only 1,000 of these tickets available and are priced at $390.
In addition to the normal sales, Burning Man organizers have setup the Secure Ticket Exchange Program (STEP) to allow people to safely re-sell their tickets and allow other people to buy them safely.
