But, but, but, "I have to use my neighbors babysitters, moms credit card, and I don't know if I can come until the event is half way over so I cant sell my ticket off early. IT"S NOT FAIR!!"

You forgot pictures on the ticket. You can't get through the Gate unless you look exactly like you did when you submitted your picture.

All tickets are STEP would work pretty well. As long as the "restocking fee" was something like 30%, so there's a heavy penalty for buying them JUST IN CASE you want to go.

Edit: Due to artificial demand, there was no perceived risk buying in. Everyone thought they could sell off their tickets for at least face value at any time. That's why so many people who genuinely wanted to go were left out in the cold, unable to do the customary 6 months of preparation. My preparation was limited to one month. There aren't enough buyers for the tickets being freed up, because two weeks is not enough time to get a week off from work and scrape a survival expedition together. It's not like a concert ticket where you can casually decide to go on a Wednesday afternoon if you run across a ticket.

Says the noob burgin.

Most people that have ever gone before know and knew about the traditional ticket surplus as we get closer to the burn. If anyone was "left out in the cold" it was because they left themselves out in the cold. Anyone that knows, keeps and kept preparing as if there's not a problem.. they just knew that a ticket would find it's way eventually if they stayed vigilant and connected.

Don't forget the artificial demand was affecting the veteran burners, too. BMORG has been pushing the high demand, sold-out angle all year. This was new behavior and regardless of veteran or noob status, a lot of people assumed that tickets would still be pretty scarce around this time.

Totally agree with 'smacks on this one. And if, for some reason you didn't get a ticket, cancel vacation or do something else. Even for the overseas people; its not like there's a lack of fun things to do in the western US. Hell, when I had a job, I put in for my vacation time right after the burn for the next year, just to make sure someone else didn't ask for the weeks I wanted.

Hey,

Does anyone know roughly when tickets go on sale for burning man 2013? I'm in charge of organising a group of 10 from London so I want to be on the ball so that we are not disappointed.

Thanks :)

The same time they always do: around January.

But barring that, you should sign up for the JRS Burning Man newsletter so you're kept in the loop.

Prior to 2012, I would have predicted that tickets would have gone on sale on January 16, 2013 at 10:00am Pacific time.
Now, who knows what's happening. Check back here, or as Bbadger suggested, Jack Rabbit Speaks.

dont understand all the fuss bout tickets. i bought my tic in reno for face value on tuesday, from a fellow burner. i think the issue of overpriced tickets being bought from ebay and other online vendors was addressed already. tickets sellin on ebay for $ 500 or $600 should be void like they were, however i dont understand the problem with buying one from a burner with and extra ticket?

Exactly what I was going to say.

And as for being "constructive", it's still not clear that we have any power to implement solutions, so, well, we're not going to put much effort out.
