Burning man tickets sold out in 35 min (1 Viewer)

Surprise, surprise... Burning Man sold out quicker than the last air conditioner on a 114-degree summer day.

The rush for 30,000 tickets available during the main sale ended after about 35 minutes, before most people could say "Sparkle Pony." People waiting in the queue started seeing "unavailable" notices for both tickets and vehicle passes around 12:40 p.m., PST.

Here are some tips on how to get a ticket, or do something else that week.

Burning Man, a giant pop-up art campout in the middle of Northern Nevada's Black Rock Desert, this year is scheduled for Aug. 27-Sept. 4. The theme this year is "Radical Ritual," one of the most common rituals during spring being the global frenzy over tickets.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $25.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $25.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $25.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
