How long to sell out? A little ticket day fun.

Post by mdmf007 » Wed Feb 18, 2015 11:02 am

Yup guys it that time of the year and we are almost off to the races. Whoever guesses closest wins. Gotta offer up a prize to be delivered at BMAN to play. At the 2015 M&G makes most sense to collect your bootie.

Last years tickets sold out in 45ish minutes. If the smoothness of the directed sale is an indicator I am betting that tickets sell out quicker.

I will conservatively guess 19:30 and offer up A sweet BMAN necklace the playa gifted in 2014 to me.

I say it will take 47 minutes. The more newbies that registered the longer it will take for them to input their info. The burning question in my mind is, how late can you 'push the button' and still get a ticket?

I'm guessing close to last year, let's say 40 minutes.

btw, last year I was 2 minutes late clicking the button and I never got in. So...they say it sold out in 45 minutes, but it was the processing time for the lucky ones who clicked in the first few minutes.

Does that make th above guesses with no booty offered void?

I'll bring a selection of aussie snacks and I guess 35 minutes.

How will we know when it's officially sold out though? Whose words are we taking on that?

In order for my guess to be deemed worthy, I will contribute something attractive and moderately useful. It will neither be MOOP nor spawn MOOP.

If burning man really what’s to fix itself just put a name on the ticket of the buyer, and checked at the gate, so no scalping on tickets, if you can’t make it return to ticketfly for full refund, then the ticket is resold at face value.
