I would have been much less disappointed had I known ahead of time that there would be a a presale and that there would be a drastic rise in presale ticket price. Those of us who were looking towards the presale had no idea whether it was actually going to happen, and I would imagine that few of us anticipated $650. Burning Man has developed a habit of dropping bombs and they haven't gone well. A $650 presale ticket price was most definitley a bomb.
...If Burning Man had announced that that there would be a presale at $650 with %100 of the profits above normal ticket cost going to low-income tickets, I would have purchased a presale ticket. 3% going to an in-house non-profit is laughable.

I know that this is not the thread to get an answer to that question but perhaps some brilliant Burner on the board will see this and give me an answer/point me in the right direction.
trilobyte wrote:Sandstorm - that info about the ticket pricing was also in the FAQ (which was linked on the ticket page and in the blog post) from day 1. As for sound pollution issues, yeah this is the wrong thread. That topic was actually beaten (to death) a few months ago in the Experiences At Burning Man forum, you may want to go check that section out. Hopefully you also answered the call from a few months back to take that feedback survey and let Burning Man know what you think.

...This year, I can prepare something special. And I'll have time to look for volunteer opportunities.
I am deeply thankful that I can afford the extra money for the Xmas tickets.
I am sending loving thoughts and positive vibrations to all burners and burners-to-be out there. See you on the Playa!
