No tickets this year. Just show up and the gate crew decides if you should get in or not. Maybe a little test or something...... :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :shock:

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.


Actually it can be done.. I packed and was at the Burn in 4 days. juuust sayin

No so easy if you live thousands of miles away. I am not sure I could pull my burn off with less than a month of planning (not to mention booking flights, etc)...

Solution? The Real Ticket Solution?

Save your fucking extra change between now and the summer months and buy one.

Really, it IS that fucking simple. Buy your ticket and shut the fuck up.

Whiners complaining about being students/artists/single parents/physically challenged/what-the-fuck-ever.

Really. If you want to go you'll find a way. You KNOW that dear reader.

Just cowboy the fuck up and do it - ya whiney bitches.

How is a watch going to stop the rain?
