Newbie Ticket Guide

If you intend to purchase a ticket of any kind, the first step is to create a burner profile.

  • Each sale has its own dedicated registration period. For any sale, you will first register during the appropriate window of time. Shortly after, usually within a week or two, you will have the opportunity to purchase the ticket.
  • Registering for a sale does not guarantee you access to a ticket or vehicle pass.
  • Tickets are in high demand, and you may not get one at first. It's ok. If you stay attentive, and communicate with other camp mates, there is a very very high chance that you will end up with a ticket before the burn.
  • Standard tickets are $425 plus fees. Pre-sale and low-income tickets are also available.
  • Read the full ticket info link above to learn about the different kinds of sales, and ticket FAQs.
