Re: Ticket Sale Delay

Maybe the ticket sale is delayed due to the re-mooping by BMOrg which will have to take place in spring, as a result of the site inspection. They did pass in total, but with some notes.
This in combination with the government shut downs, would it be possible that the event will be skipped a year?

Re: Ticketfly for European purchases 2019

Last Year you couldn't use a complete European billing adress - but you could use ticketfly anyway. I was registered with my adress / Zip Code but had still United States as Country and a US State choosen in my profil. That worked well with "will call" tickets. BUT - there was not this "special not...

Re: Presale / main sale ticket: how to tell?

The price of the ticket is printed on the ticket.
So the $990,- pre-sale ticked will show the $990,- on it, same for all other priced tickets

1 hour queue before main sale

Seems there will be a queue for the main sale, the queue opens 1 hour before the actual sale.
Will it go seamless this time?

Re: When do PreSale $990 tickets sell out - 2018

There is still a registration required for pre-sale tickets. If one did not register, no pre-sale ticket. The $990 are only available in the pre-sale. Also $1200 tickets are available in the pre-sale. Additional $1200 tickets, these will become available as from April 4 and a registration in order t...

Re: It all started in the year?

That’s a typo. But there’s really a lot more to it. Super briefly: Harvey burning his now-iconic wooden stick figure wasn’t originally the “Burning Man” you know at all. The whole event out in the desert thing wasn’t his idea, it was the San Francisco Cacophony Society. They held what they called a...

It all started in the year?

1986, right? The time line on the BM site starts in 1986. First Man burned on Baker Beach SF. However, the Building Burning Man Newsletter of 1993 (The Culture \ Historical publications) writes the following: "Yet back in 1985, when the first Man was burned.." Anyway, I like reading the newsletters ...

Re: Let the ranting begin!

Pre sale ticket is $990 (or $1200). Not $900. When entering the sale, there is a choice: $990 or $1200, until the $990 is sold out. And yes, it is an insurance. For foreign burners this is better because of preparation (flight, car / RV rental). The earlier the better and cheaper. The higher ticket ...

Re: Multiple ticket buyers at the same address

My suggestion to anyone trying to buy tickets in the main sale. Have identical names on your burner account, credit card and ticketfly account and mailing address. It's really not that difficult. And, don't forget to call your credit card company in advance. Let them know there will be a purchase. ...

Multiple people in the same house is okay, because families and roommates. However, remember that the name on the burner profile, ticketfly account, and credit card should all match or the order may be flagged for review by the ticket team. . Hi, question: By "name" you mean family name I assume? W...

They probably didn't think that twice as many people would register for the individual sale as there were tickets.
