Hi Guys.

My friends and I are super keen to come to BM in 2019, but I can't find any info for 2019 tickets! The website link for 2019 takes me to info for 2018......

I have seen that there are tickets on viagogo but I can't tell if they are legitimate!

Any help you guys can offer would be greatly appreciated!

Legitimate tickets for 2019 will not be available before next year.

Patience is your friend :D

Sign up for the Jackrabbit Speaks newsletter, the dates when the ticket information, registration, and sales, will be announced. It is simply too early. Any tickets listed now are not valid or authentic. Patience.

Mod note: moving this topic to Tickets Discussion. Greeter's Station is not appropriate for ticket begging/seeking/discussion.

Hi! Resurrecting an old thread.
I just discovered today the Jackrabbit Speaks newsletter and of course I directly subscribed to it.
I wonder if an announcement about the ticket sales phases openings for 2019 has been done through the newsletter from october to late december (now).
Thank you!

No worries JeffBdn, you haven't missed any ticket announcements. I'm glad you're excited. Harness that energy to begin to plan how you will be totally self sufficient the entire week you are in the desert as well as how you'll contribute, and you'll be well on your way to a worthwhile experience.

Good luck on ticket sale day!

Thanks burner von braun!
By experience, is it really hard to get a ticket, due to the limited amount vs increasing number of people eager to contribute?

Yes.

There are 10's of thousands of tickets that go on sale. Everyone looking for tickets should sign up for email alerts with Jack Rabbit Speaks. https://burningman.org/culture/stories/jrs/ This will give you the latest pulse on tickets as well as all other important info.

Also, you will need to set up a profile on the Burner Profile page. This will give you your portal to order tickets when they go on sale. In the past, tickets have gone on sale as early as January. No announcement has been made yet, but it should be coming very soon. https://profiles.burningman.org/

There is somewhere between 70,000 and 80,000 tickets for Burning Man. The vast majority of them go to participants in general sales. Last year they ranged in price from $425 to $1200, with low income tickets also offered for less than that. All tickets simply get you in the gate and have no other benefits based on price. The higher priced tickets tend to be available by logging on and just ordering, where the lower priced ones sell out almost immediately when the sale opens. You will also need a vehicle pass (VP) for each car/RV/truck/bus entering the event.

Ok. Then I'll have to be swift and quick on it.
I expected that from how the 2018 Tickets Sales were structured.
Thanks for the precisions!

I expect ticket information for 2019 should be available shortly after the first of the new year.

We're well into January, and ticket info on the burningman.org site still hasn't been updated to reflect 2019. If this year follows last year's schedule, registration for pre-sale tickets is less than two weeks away. Help...FOMO!

Did you bring any dog biscuits for us to munch on while we wait?

The BORG would have to know the population cap to design the ticket plan. The BORG and the BLM were working through the EIS which sets the population cap. I haven't heard a date for the EIS. There are about 4 BLM staff in Winnemucca connected to the event. The BLM would have a choice to consider them funded by the event and able to work, or furrowed. The shutdown can't last much longer and there is plenty of time for ticket sales. This is also a perfect example of why it's useful for the BORG to have a cash reserve until the ticket sale funds flow.

I'm sure the BLM has many a furrowed brow (often) but now they are probably furloughed! :D

Latest jackrabbit had no mention of tickets. Damn the shutdown must be delaying things as suspected, oh well back to waiting.
