I plan on surgically attaching wheels to my knees and elbows and practicing my best engine noises and getting in as a Mutant Vehicle.

Without DMV approval, you'll spend your burn in the impound lot. Have fun!

Attention Eplayans

In order to better prepare for the anticipated greater number of gate crashers this year, Burning Man is being rolled back one week and will take place on September 10 through September 17, 2012. Please adjust your schedules accordingly. Those of you who receive tickets with the original August 27 through September 3, 2012 dates printed on them will still be able to use those tickets at the gate. Your original tickets will be accepted on the new later date.

Burning Man inadvertently "forces" artists who actually have things to contribute to sneak in. More news at 11.

Will the stigma against trying to sneak in still be in place? Things seemed to have changed as far as that sort of thing goes. Maybe people could pull it off in the dark of night.

Even easier to catch them in the dark, they have night vision equipment.

I work for people who have contacts who can get tickets anywhere, and usually because they are so 'important' they always get them complimentary, should I go this route or play fair?

important in what way? burning man volunteers/staff ? surely the staff who make it happen are actually important and not airquotes "important"

i mean uhh,.. some folks need to staff this thing! can you imagine all the hippies freakin out if they didnt have a water truck to run behind?

If whatever person this is hails from some sorta burning man dept.. giving you a Gift ticket is surely their decision.. those things arent given out lightly and it will be on Them.. theyll have to answer for it in some way (i dont know what way that is.. but someone signs off on it.. probably senior staff..)


You seem to imply it isnt fair to get one... well, can you live with that ? Could it cause problems? .. if you dont wanta live with that... probably id say no!

I work for people who live in a different world to the other 99.9%, they are 'important' really only because people want to think they are, I have never know them being refused anything and they almost certainly don't have to pay money for it. They have nothing to do with BM. I actually wouldn't go down this road because in their world 'nothing is actually free', I am going to try STEP then final sale, if I don't get a ticket fairly (imo obviously) then there is plenty of other things I need to do before I die.

This time of year is perfect for sneaking onto the playa. Except for the quicksand.Later in the year, not so much.
