Black Rock City 2024 Ticket Information

Interested in going to Black Rock City 2024? Before you buy a ticket, be sure to read our Ticket Terms and Conditions. You’ll find them unlike those for any other event, especially some critical agreements related to image use, risk of injury or death, the prohibition of commercial activities, and other fun tidbits. Sure, reading Terms and Conditions isn’t super exciting, but since the use of a ticket means you agree to these terms, we need to be sure that you know what they are.

Please note: The numbers on this page are approximations. We are being conservative in our planning, and adjustments will be made as needed (including adjustments to delivery costs, fees, and ticket insurance rates). Ticket sale numbers don’t necessarily reflect BRC’s population. This page will be updated if we make any changes to ticket sale information.

TICKET INSURANCE

As in 2023, participants will have the option to purchase ticket insurance for an additional fee during the checkout process. Coverage is available for the tickets and vehicle pass for your 2024 order via FanShield powered by Protecht, a third-party insurance provider, for purchases made from the USA and Canada (excluding Quebec). If your ticket and vehicle pass is protected by insurance and you are unable to join us in Black Rock City because of one of nearly twenty life events covered by the policy for participants in your area, FanShield will reimburse you for the full cost of your ticket and vehicle pass (including any taxes and fees). Premium costs vary by location but are roughly 6.5% of the face value of all items in your order and are non-refundable. FanShield has a dedicated support team to guide you through the claims process. For more information about what is covered by Protecht’s FanShield ticket insurance please see this FAQ. The FanShield terms and conditions and ticket protection policy apply to the ticket insurance for the items in your order, so please read them carefully.

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.

Before buying a third-party ticket or vehicle pass, check to make sure the ticket, vehicle pass and/or order number isn’t listed on our voided ticket and order list. Tickets, vehicle passes, and orders can be voided for numerous reasons, including being reported as stolen, lost by the postal service, being sold for above their face value, or other breach of the Ticket Terms and Conditions. The voided ticket list will continually be updated as we have new information, but please note that this list may not be complete at the time you purchase a ticket or vehicle pass from a third party and you do so at your own risk. Any ticket or vehicle pass that has been voided is not valid for entry to Black Rock City 2024.
