So so so upset. after 3 years in a row of nothing I finally got through. Put info in, called hubby with good news, and it all went wrong. Ticketyfly kept resetting my info saying I needed to use a Visa or Mastercard, and I was!@ I put my visa info in 3 times carefully and everytime it didnt accept it! Eventually my ticketfly page told mee to try again, it refreshed and now Im back at the beginning of the line!@@!!!! Ive never used so much profanity! my timer wasnt even done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Frig, not getting through is one thing, but this time it felt personal.

If you were so notified, then that's it. Last year about the same timeframe.

haha, thanks I needed a laugh because I'm fucking freaking out still!! Only 1 out of 9 people in our group has gotten in so far. Anyone know what time tickets sold out last year? I'm trying to figure out how much hope I should have left...

I've been measuring the pixels of the green bar at regular intervals and calculated my progress rate to be about:

5.217391304347824 pixels per minute.

Anyone else care to share their speeds? ;) (Also congrats to all that got in!!)

@SpringBacon,I'm sorry to hear it. I would suggest sending an email to ticketsupport@burningman.org with all the pertinent details (as see the first post for specifics).

Congrats to everyone who got in... for the rest of us...it's time to start the journey of getting a ticket between now and then! It's easy for me to say because I'm local to the area but I've never not eventually gotten a ticket (for face value btw). What I was trying to avoid was the intense anxiety as the date draws nearer and you still don't have a ticket... somehow it always works out though, somehow!

Ah well, congrats to those who got tickets. This year we were kind of half into it, half not. If we got tickets in the main sale, we were going, if not, we weren't gonna scramble for them. So, next year!

It would not be Burningman if the ticket sales went according to plan.

I've merged Cornelius_Pumpernickel's ticket sale discussion thread. Yes, 30 minutes is about right, based on previous years' ticket sales. Fingers crossed for all those in the system, hopefully something shakes loose when an abandoned cart times out (what happens when someone has tickets in their cart but does not complete the transaction).

I joined the waiting room around 1130am.

I did nothing w the browser except watch the countdown.

When the countdown hit zero It refreshed and I saw the green man and the bar all green.

It said you are now ready for tickets or something and it redirected me to ticket fly.

I immediately logged in to ticketfly, selected a pair and checked out.

None of my other peeps trying got tickets. *shrug*

hope to see you out there again

Hello again you wonderful people!

I can happily say, i've got a ticket....
...but i panicked.....and didn't get a vehicle pass....

does anyone know if it is possible to get one separately?
in the STEP or else...even if i already bought a ticket?

I would be massively thankful for any hints.

Greetings,

Trilo, maybe you can answer this. By the time I advanced to the purchase ticket screen all tickets and VPs were already in other people's carts and none available. I hit the purchase tickets button anyway and a VP only became available, so I purchased it. Email confirmed I have purchased a Main Sale Vehicle Pass only. Will this VP be cancelled or will a valid VP be sent to me by the Org? I can get the two tickets I needed another way (Low Income, Step, OMG, after market, etc.). But VPs are harder to get in recent years than tickets. Help please!

I got my ticket. After so many horror stories, I got mine, and will be fulfilling a long neglected dream to come home to Burning Man 2017.

Double shot of Rum to celebrate. Now the chills kick in, and it is time to hunt for a cheap airfare. =D

To all the burners that were not so lucky as me: Best luck on STEP and OMG.

See ya on the playa.
