Mid-late July. Tickets have only been shipping for a little over a week, there are 60,000 of them to get out, and those Fireballs don't get put into the envelopes by machines. It usually takes a few weeks for them all to go out. I would give it at least two more weeks before I began to freak out. If you still haven't gotten them at that time, contact ticketing (see the link in my sig) - no one here on the board can actually look into it.
That would explain why Atomic Fireball futures always go up this time of year. Possibly an investment opportunity.

Oh no Rubyrd! Do you have a tracking number? Contact ticketing support as well so they can either bug UPS from their end or void your tickets and send others.

I have already talked to UPS and they are looking for my package, a claim has been setup with Ticketfly. Still, how could they lose it, it is what they supposedly do, deliver shit and all.

It'll be OK, just frustrating

Signed for my ticket/VP/SG/FB today.
Plus a whole bunch of BM related online purchases were picked up from the PO also.

But still no email that my ticket is on the way.

Apparently we missed the delivery guy today, even though my wife was home the whole day. We think he just didn't bother coming to the door to get us to sign it. Too late to go pick it up tonight, just have to stare at the rectangle sheet of paper with "TicketFly" on it.

Wife is picking it up tomorrow.

I am about to lose my poop with this waiting game. Anyone else still not receive their tickets? I will feel better if I am not the only one. Irrational worrier right here. I am sure everything is fine and my crazy is just getting the best of me.

Nope...no tickets and/or Fireball for me yet. Not even the shipping email yet, and I bought in Feb. during camp directed sale. Tickets are being sent out on playa time. Obvi!

Nothing for us yet. Nothing from ticketfly or the raffle we won.

Nada here either.

The Ticketfly site apparently doesn't show if the order is shipped or not and the e-mail system seems to be broken sooooo..........I will patiently wait. :|

My mail doesn't come until late in the afternoon. No email from Ticketfly. And I rigorously check my spam folder at least twice a day.....

UPS is still unable to find my tickets. They keep calling and asking me if I got them. I don't think they like me anymore as I have low tolerance for incompetence.

I reported the loss to Ticketfly, got a reply email that said it would be a minimum of 48 hours before they would respond to me. So, I am NOT a happy camper right now.

But, I certainly hope I will be soon. :D

No need to be an asshole, JayBobBoy. There's actually a very good reason to delay the ticket shipment process until summertime, and that's to make it tougher for counterfeiters and scammers. Be thankful they're not like some other festivals, who hold all ticket mailings until 3 weeks before the start of the event.
