Tens of thousands registered last week for Burning Man tickets. On Wednesday, they found out if they were among the lucky ones to get good news.
There were about 30,000 $425 tickets and 10,000 $80 vehicle passes up for grabs, not nearly enough for everyone interested, the Reno-Gazette Journal reports. Last year, there were about 70,000 registrants.
As part of the annual gathering in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert in Nevada, “participants join in the effort to co-create Black Rock City, a temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance,” according to the Burning Man website. This year’s event is set for Aug. 27 through Sept. 4 and has a “Radical Ritual” theme.
Not all hope is lost if you were unable to snag a ticket. Find information on the Secure Ticket Exchange Program, the OMG Sale, the Low Income Ticket Program, and limited $1,200 tickets here.
