As most of you know, I was happy to have attended Burning Man in 2018 and hope to return this year. The dates for 2019 are Aug 25 to Sep 2.

One of the biggest challenges is getting tickets. There are various dates for ticket sales and at widely varying prices. Last year, if memory serves me correctly, tickets cost anywhere from $400 to $1200. I felt a bit of a sucker paying the $1200 price, but that is what happens if you don't plan in advance.

For 2019 I believe they are doing the cheap ticket sale first, which I applaud. However, from stories from previous years, it is basically a gamble getting through their site to buy them on that date, as everybody is trying to.

I hope I'm not violating any of the 10 Burning Man Principles in saying that even if you don't want to attend, you can help your fellow WoV members or friends in general go by trying to help them get a ticket on whatever date they have the initial sale. I want to go on record as say that it is against Burning Man principles to sell tickets at a profit. However, I don't think it breaks any rules to sell tickets to friends at your cost and it certainly helps nurture friendships to do favors for each other.

That said, the first step is easy. You have to create a Burner Profile. You have to just put in a user name, real name, and Email address. Then verify it through a link they will send to your Email address, which will ask for a bit more information. You must have a Burner Profile to buy tickets.

Also, if anyone is serious, I may be able to squeeze you into my group. I am not in charge, so can only make recommendations.

I will keep this thread updated when dates are announced for the ticket sales. However, again, you can get your Burner Profile ready now. It takes only about five minutes and there is no obligation.

The question for the poll is what are your plans for Burning Man 2019?

BTW, my Burning Man video from last year is by far my most successful YouTube video. It currently ranks 5th for a YouTube search on "Burning Man 2018."

As a frequent visitor of Fantasy Fest in Key West, FL... Burning man has always been on my bucket list, but I've never been able to connect with a group of people serious enough to actually go. When I get a chance later, I'll view this video, and check my schedule.

The date of the Burning Man ticket sale has been announced, Feb 27 at 12:00 PM Pacific time. The cost of tickets in this direct sale are $425. Trust me, they are worth much more. I don't want to condone up-charging, but I would very much appreciate it if anybody could buy four for me. Please PM if interested. I will try myself, but I hear the odds of getting through for this sale are low.

I'm not commenting because Mike already

him of the satisfaction..

Gee, burning man, fantasy fest, that drugs, sex and electronic music ship out of port everglades.......you all lead exciting lives.

i'm content with a can of cherries or blueberries. No cream because the quacks forbid me dairy products even if the food bank burdens me with them.

life at the home for the Poor, Retired and Retarded pales in comparison.

Enjoy your vices!!

Ordering tickets seems to be very complicated. I am signed up for the burner profile, but found a link to tickets that seeMs to require pre-registration for a deadline already passed to buy tickets in this round.

Everybody agrees that it is very complicated. I think the sale that already happened is for big groups that do an art installation, which I wasn't qualified for.

Thanks for looking to this. This will have my full attention starting around 11 AM Wednesday and I'm happy to communicate via PM or phone as I try to figure out the next step myself. I think you just have to log into your Burning Man profile and take it from there.

I may be interested in buying tickets for cheap then selling them for a more expensive price later on. I donít know anything about that, but if you know how to do it (properly), Iíll invest.

I misunderstood what kind of tickets were being sold tomorrow. That is the "group sale," where you have to be part of a pre-approved mutant vehicle of major art installation, which I'm not. Would like to be in the future, if I think of some idea. My apologies for the false alarm.

That said, here is some Burning Man 2019 Ticket Information. The important dates are March 20 for the $1,400 tickets and April 10 for the $425 tickets. If you buy in the first sale, you can't buy again in the second one. However, you are allowed to sell tickets at cost. I'll just say that.

If anybody is interested in helping me procure tickets, please let me know. This is a way to do a solid favor for me. If I have helped you win more, or lose less, in the casinos, please consider it. Thank you.

What if multiple people on here procure you tickets? Will you buy them all and resell them? I wouldn't mind helping you but I sure don't want to get stuck with four tickets.
