4,000 tickets at $190 each are available through our 2014 Low Income Ticket Program. These tickets are reserved for participants on a limited income who cannot otherwise afford our regular priced ticket. All Low Income tickets have been awarded for 2014.

The application period for this program opened March 4, 2014 and closed May 27, 2014. As of July 3 all applications have been reviewed and all applicants notified of their status. If you applied and did not hear back please check your spam folder for your notification email. Notification emails were sent from lowincome@burningman.com.

Please see our our Ticket Support page if you have additional questions.

GATE AND WALK-UP OUTLET SALES

Tickets will not be sold at the front Gate of Black Rock City nor at Walk-Up Outlets. We are indebted to our Outlets for their many years of service to our community – please continue to support them!

FRAUD PREVENTION & THIRD PARTY BUYER INFO

We realize that many people will buy tickets second-hand. To help aid people in doing this more safely, we have created a section of our FAQ with tips on buying tickets more safely, as well as 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. 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 2014.

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.

To learn more about buying tickets more safely, please read the Fraud Prevention & Third Party Buyer Info section of our Ticket Support page.
