Re: 2019 One Item A Day For Burning Man

Bad. Ass. When/where is this epic sounding Heavy Metal Happy hour??? Monday - Friday 5:55 to 6:66 (7:06 for the layman) at Slayer Camp. We’ve never put in for placement -regretting that this year with the minimal open camping area- but we usually aim for somewhere between 6 & 9, I & K. Look for the...

Re: Have you got your ticket? (International)

I know Will Call is a bit of a disorganized clusterfuck... but man waiting on international delivery seems like a stressful ordeal. Especially with having to hope for delivery before flights and whatnot. The ticket fairy shall come through! It will be the best mail delivery you receive all year.

Re: I still don't understand blue flags and placed vs. unplaced

Right after gates open, there is space on the corners next to the portos. Maybe I'm being posh, but I can't bring myself to camp near the portos. I've experienced too many afternoon wind gusts wafting the smell of other people's hot shit into the air to do it. They are definitely prime targets for ...

Re: I still don't understand blue flags and placed vs. unplaced

Last year it was very difficult to find anything open early Sunday, this year will be flagged all the way out. Last year we got in less than an hour after gates opened & we had a hard time finding a 20 foot wide sliver of open land to set up our small camp. As much as I worry it may result in confl...

Re: open campers - weds arrival - are we hosed?

The likelihood of there being street front property available is likely zero. I would say your best odds are to look on the interior of the open camping blocks & try to find some open land in the middle of the block off the street. There tends to be SOME of that still available here & there but the ...

90-95% of requests are granted. For Maths, let’s call that 92.5% Not counting Villages ... 1750 x .925 = 1618 placed camps. 32000 DGS tickets. Divide the two numbers and you get ~ 20 tickets per placed camp on average. 32000 / 1618 =~ 20 So please tell me, what kind of fucking awesome could you bui...

Re: Placement 2019-2020

Last year was brutal for those of us who enjoy open camping in the suburbs. I was in the city less than an hour after the gates opened and already the vast majority of open camping was being held. This year is gonna be tough for us peons.

Re: Experiences buying Limited/DaVinci/FOMO/EXPENSIVE tickets in aftermarket?

Buying them is easy. They sell out but there is no mad rush, as their is for Main sale tickets. People are always able to sell them to other burners if they have extras. Prior to last year, many sellers were forced to sell the presale/DiVinci/FOMO tickets for less than what they paid for them, espec...

I'm ok with this. They're not using Burning Man or any related / peripheral event related subject matter to promote themselves, just the name of their art car. I've seen other camps / art cars do similar things as fund raisers. If the flyer said something like "Your favorite Burning Man art car!" or...

If you can afford a presale ticket, get a presale ticket & ...

The event has been selling out since 2011, however prior to this year there have been quite a few tickets that popped up for sale in the month / weeks before the burn that wound up being sold below face value. Particularly the $1,200 level tickets, but even some of the presale $900 level tickets wer...
