Here's some of the latest Jack Rabbit Speaks, today, on ticket news. All I know at the moment, hopefully our camp will get notice from Placement on the Jan 11 deal. We got 10 precious 'directed tickets' for our camp in '12 from getting our application in early on time. This appears that being a past placed theme camp could get us in on the first 10,000 ticket list. :::::::::
PLEASE NOTE: Pre-registration is required in order to gain access to any of our sales for 2013. Once you've registered you will be able to participate in the first-come first-served sales. So ... here's the plan:
55,000 Tickets for Burning Man 2013 will be sold as follows (details below):
1. Directed Group Sale (10,000 tickets) - January 30 (Pre-registration required)
2. Individual Sale (40,000 tickets) - February 13 (Pre-registration required, February 6-10)
3. Secure Ticket Exchange Program (STEP) - February 28-July 31
4. OMG Last Chance Sale (1000+ tickets) - August 7 (Pre-registration required, August 2-5)
5. Low Income Ticket Program (4,000 tickets) - Application required
Directed Group Sale: 10,000 tickets
We are once again taking steps to ensure critical theme camp, art installation, and mutant vehicle crews gain access to tickets. In addition to supporting the core social infrastructure of Black Rock City, providing these groups with access to tickets early on will decrease demand (and therefore competition) for tickets in the main Individual Sale. 10,000 tickets at $380 each will be offered to these core crews on Wednesday, January 30. Group leaders will receive an email on Friday, January 11, 2013 with detailed information about how to provide their core group members with access to the Directed Group Sale. These tickets are transferable and eligible for STEP.
Individual Sale: 40,000 tickets
The Individual sale will make 40,000 tickets available at $380 each, with a maximum of 2 tickets per person. To participate in the Individual Sale, you must pre-register between Friday, February 6, 2013 at 12pm (noon) PST and Sunday, February 10, 2013 at 12pm (noon) PST. Detailed information about how to register for this sale will be available in mid-January at http://tickets.burningman.com
. This first-come first-served sale begins at 12pm (noon) PST on Wednesday, February 13th. These tickets are transferable and eligible for STEP.
NOTE: There will not be tiered pricing for this sale - all 40,000 tickets are $380. (If you're curious about how this compares with the ticket prices for major festivals, please see "Where Does My Ticket Money Go?": http://www.burningman.com/whatisburningman/about_burningman/ticketprices.html
Secure Ticket Exchange Program (STEP)
We're bringing back STEP to facilitate the secure, safe, hassle-free exchange of tickets. People wishing to purchase tickets may register to enter the STEP queue starting Thursday, February 28, 2013 at 12pm PST at http://tickets.burningman.com
. When tickets are put into STEP by ticket holders, the person at the front of the queue will be offered the opportunity to purchase them (maximum of 2 tickets per person). STEP will close on Wednesday, July 31, 2013 at 12pm PST. Stay tuned to the JRS for details about the STEP process. Tickets bought through STEP are transferable, but they are ONLY available for pickup at Will Call.
