Entry Tickets (overview)

Getting Burning Man Entry Tickets is the hardest part of coming to camp.

If there is ANY chance you want to come, Please try to purchase tickets in the main sale.  It is far easier to change your mind from yes to no than from no to yes.

There are multiple paths....  start here.

Please read the official ticket information at  Key points:
  • DO NOT resell tickets for more than their face value.
  • One pair of tickets per person and per credit card.  You and your SO can each buy a pair of tickets on different credit cards.
  • Tickets are sold in waves: presale; Directed Group Sale (DGS); Main; STEP; OMG; and Low income.  
  • Each wave has different prices, rules, registration and deadlines.  (See the table below).
  • You must setup or update your burning man profile.  This is NOT registration by itself.
  • During the announced registration window, your profile page will show a link or button "Register for [...] sale".  You MUST click through to register.
  • The checklist on the Main Sale page apply to all BMORG sales, with slightly different details such as dates.
