GENERAL TICKET SALE INFO
Interested in going to Black Rock City 2023? 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.
Please note: The numbers on this page are approximations. We are being conservative in our planning and adjustments will be made as needed. Ticket sale numbers don’t necessarily reflect BRC’s population.
- All sales require registration through Burner Profiles. Make sure your Profile is complete, current, set up with your preferred email address, and that you know your log-in details.
- Each sale has its own dedicated registration period.
- Registering for a sale does not guarantee you access to a ticket or vehicle pass.

This year, participants will have the option to purchase ticket insurance for the tickets and vehicle pass in their order from FanShield powered by Protecht, a third-party insurance provider, for an additional fee during the checkout process. 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 ourvoided 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 of sale. When the list becomes live, we’ll link to it here, and it will continually be updated as we have new information. Any ticket or vehicle pass that has been voided is not valid for entry to Black Rock City 2023.
