SECURE TICKET EXCHANGE PROGRAM (STEP)

The Secure Ticket Exchange Program (STEP) is an online system that facilitates the safe resale of face-value tickets that have been purchased directly from Burning Man. It’s designed to provide a hassle-free, secure way of buying and selling tickets while avoiding scammers, counterfeits and scalpers. Read more…

4,000 tickets at $190 each are available through our 2015 Low Income Ticket Program. These tickets are reserved for participants on a limited income who cannot otherwise afford our regular priced ticket. These tickets are non-transferrable. Read more…

GATE AND WALK-UP OUTLET SALES

Tickets will not be sold at the front Gate of Black Rock City nor at any Walk-Up Outlets.

FRAUD PREVENTION & THIRD PARTY BUYER INFO

We understand that for some people buying tickets second-hand is the most realistic option. To help people do this more confidently, we have created a section of our FAQ with tips on buying tickets more safely. Once tickets begin to ship it will also include a list of ticket numbers that have been voided. Tickets can be voided for numerous reasons, including being reported as stolen, lost by the postal service, or being sold for above their face value, or other breach of the terms and conditions of sale. This list will continually be updated as we have new information. Please check this list before you buy a ticket from someone to make sure it’s not on the list and that the sales circumstances don’t sound like any of the scams that have been reported to us. Any ticket that has been voided will not be valid for entry to Burning Man 2015.

If you see a listing for marked up tickets on eBay, please report the item directly to eBay to get it taken down. You can find instructions here.
