The 2016 Main Sale, Pre-Sale, and Group Sale are CANCELLED

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.

This could have been very exciting :twisted:

I think it was a great joke. Just close enough to make your heart skip a beat but not legit enough to get you "fired" a la the Gmail mic drop.

Well technically the tickets haven't been shipped, so they could easily just refund them. Nothing like retroactively applied rules to set the day off right!

I believe it - I had one of our campers contact me, completely freaked out. He's a 7 year vet, but the ticket drama is so high he just assumed it was real.
