Navigating Burning Man 2023 Ticket Sales: A Guide

Getting tickets for Burning Man can be challenging due to measures in place to deter scalpers. The ticketing process has continuously evolved over the years, making it somewhat complex. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you secure your tickets to the 2023 event.

  1. Create a Burner Profile: Start by creating or updating your Burner Profile, a free account on the Burning Man ticketing website. You can buy 2 tickets and 1 vehicle pass per profile.
  2. Register for the Sale: Make sure to register in advance through your Burner Profile for the sale you wish to participate in. You’ll receive an email with a link to purchase tickets, which you should save.
  3. Vehicle Passes: If you plan to drive to Black Rock Desert, you’ll need a vehicle pass. These are limited, so purchase one whenever possible. They cost $150, or about $160 with fees, taxes, and shipping.
  4. Sales Overview: There are several sales throughout the year, including the FOMO Sale, Stewards’ Sale, Main Sale, and OMG Sale. Each sale has specific registration windows, so pay close attention to the dates.
  5. Specialty Tickets: For children 12 and under, free print-at-home tickets are available starting mid-July. Low-income tickets are available through an application process that involves providing financial documentation.
  6. Alternative Ticket Options: If you’re unable to secure a ticket through the sales, consider the Secure Ticket Exchange Program (STEP), which is an automated system for face-value tickets. You can also look for tickets through Burner networks or online platforms, but exercise caution to avoid scams.

Remember not to buy or sell scalped tickets, as this goes against the principles of Burning Man.
