Re: Burning Man purchased Fly Ranch.....

Festival organizers announced today they’ve closed on a deal on Fly Ranch, a 3,800-acre property in Washoe County, Nevada, for $6.5m, half what owner Sam Jasick asked for a few years ago (he has since passed away, and his son Todd was more interested in closing the sale). At recent Burning Man festi...

Hello fellow STEPchildren.. Didn't have access to the WWW this weekend but just found an email in my inbox from Saturday at 4:20 am from STEP. 2 tickets @ $390.

Re: Identity based tickets.... Why not?

The main reason to initiate identity based tickets is to kill the black market. Do you whine about the inconvenience of identity based tickets when you buy an airline ticket? It makes sense and is very easy to utilize. As far as the last minute changes - well, that all comes down to good planning. I...

Identity based tickets.... Why not?

IMHO, The 2 REAL reasons the BMorg won't implement identity based tickets is greed and flat out laziness. Although the implementation of identity based tickets is quite simple, due to: 1) their database had the identity of each ticket purchaser via the ticket registration process 2) physical tickets...

Re: 2012 TICKET PRICES INCREASED TO $390! WTF???

If you want to go with the top tier being 360 last year, fine, a 9% increase. But the meat is in the volume. This year close to half of all ticket sales (25,000) are being sold at top tier (not including the 3,000 $420 tix). Last year maybe the last 5,000 -10,000 (or 20%) were sold at top tier. A li...

360 vs 390 is 9% Just look at the highest tiered ticket for one example: $390 this year vs $350 last year. And 25,000 of them this year. $40 increase over previous year's $350 price is 12%. Last year I bought tickets at the pre-Xmas price, which was $295. This year that ticket will cost $420 (nice n...
