So you want to go to Burning Man 2018? Ticket Info plus Desert Cosmonauts Video

January 24, 2018

So you LOVE Burning Man, and you DREAM about Burning Man, and you think you want to go to Burning Man 2018 over Labor Day weekend?

Then you might want to check out the video above by Juan Reyes (with text from Carl Sagan’s Cosmos) or the longer video below that recounts the Desert Cosmonauts 2016 Burning Man experience — mostly in Spanish with English subtitles…

And if you’re excited about exploring this year’s Burning Man “I, Robot” theme which you can read about here…

 

And if you know all about Burning Man’s 10 Principles and you’re ready to practice them… (If you need a refresher, check out this Burning Man 10 Principles coloring book).

Then maybe you’re ready to get a Burning Man Ticket for 2018!

But just because you want to make the trek to Nevada’s Black Rock Desert located two hours northeast of Reno (and then deal with 2-20 hours at Gate and another 2-20 hours at Exodus) doesn’t mean you’re going to get one of the coveted tickets. But if you want to try, 

Here’s Burning Man 2018 Ticket Information

To be eligible to buy a Burning Man ticket, you must register. REGISTRATION begins TODAY for PRE-SALE TICKETS  $990 and $1,200:

  • Opens: January 24, 2018 12pm (noon) PST
  • Closes: January 26, 2018 12pm (noon) PST

  • PRE-SALE Starts: January 31, 2018 12pm (noon) PST

 

Just because you register doesn’t mean you will get a ticket. There are many many more people who want to participate in Burning Man than there are tickets available.

Read about all 2018 ticket sale dates here.

According to the Burning Man website, here is GENERAL TICKET SALE INFO:
  • All sales require registration through Burner Profiles. Make sure your Profile is set up, complete, current, 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.
  • Buying a $425 ticket in any sale precludes you from buying additional $425 tickets in a later sale.
  • Only one order per person and per credit card is allowed.
  • All sales of Burning Man tickets and vehicle passes are final but they are fully transferrable and eligible for name changes.
  • Tickets and vehicle passes may only be resold for face value. Any tickets or vehicle passes being sold for above face-value may be canceled without notice or refund.
  • 2018 SALES AND PROGRAMS
Desperate to go? Check out the PRE-SALE: 
  • Approximately 5,000 tickets available, at two prices: $990 and $1,200 each, plus applicable fees and taxes.
  • Vehicle passes can only be purchased in conjunction with tickets. Any Pre-Sale orders consisting solely of vehicle passes will be cancelled without notice.
  • $990 & $1,200 Tickets are NOT eligible to be resold through the Secure Ticket Exchange Program (STEP).
  • These are the ticket that go on sale January 31.

For more information about the Pre-Sale, please read through the Pre-Sale section of the FAQ.

MAIN SALE (no guarantees of getting a ticket)
LOW INCOME TICKET PROGRAM (doesn’t guarantee a ticket)
DIRECTED GROUP SALE (no guarantees)
LIMITED $1,200 TICKETS (good chance)
SECURE TICKET EXCHANGE PROGRAM (STEP)
KID’S TICKETS
OMG SALE

Confused? All of this is an attempt to make it possible for the most people to have a chance to get a ticket, to cover costs, and for theme camps and art projects to have the key camp mates they need to bring their project to the playa.

While $425 may seem like a lot of money, it is the minimum required to cover the costs of providing the necessary infrastructure to this remote site. More expensive tickets subsidize that art projects on playa — as well as ensuring that the wealthy have the tickets they covet without going to the secondary market aka scalpers.

Am I going in 2018? Not sure. I’ve been 18 times: 1992, 1995-2002, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011, and then 2013-1017. Read about my experiences in the paper I wrote for grad school in Community Psychology, Liberation Psychology and Ecopsychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute — it’s broken up into three parts:

Read about the early days of Burning Man.
Read about the need for the 10 Principles.
Read about the 10 Principles. 

Over the years,  I’ve been a part of Hushville, Kidsville, the Elvis Wedding Chapel, and other theme camps. I’m talking with some other Kidsvillians about a camp that would have a family oriented bar…because as inclusive as Burnign Man is, not everywhere is an appropriate place to take your kid!

If a ticket miraculously comes my way like it has for the past two years, and in other years, I will probably go.

There is nothing quite like it in the world. And while it may seem like it is one giant party or a huge art installation, it is not just that. It is so much more.

So what do you think? Do you want to go to Burning Man? Have you gone? Are you going to try to go this year? Let me know in the comments!
