The OMG Sale is coming up tomorrow, for those who registered. And just like the Individual Sale, there are lot more registrants than there are tickets available.
Yep, that’s right … the secret’s out about Burning Man, demand is high, and the reality is that most of you aren’t going to be able to get a ticket. But if you don’t get one in the OMG Sale, don’t despair: be patient, get the word out there, stay connected to your Burner community, and one could very well make its way to you.
Some things to consider when purchasing tickets in the open market:
- Don’t buy a ticket from someone you don’t know unless you’re certain they aren’t ripping you off (with this much demand, the predators will be out there).
- If you purchase a ticket from a stranger, be absolutely sure it’s not a counterfeit before you buy it. (Stay tuned for a post about how to recognize a counterfeit.)
- Buying a ticket above face value perpetuates the scalping system. Don’t be part of the problem. Use STEP or buy from people you know, and only pay face value plus fees.
And lastly, keep in mind that Black Rock City is not the only place to get your burn on. There are over 60 Burns happening around the world, including Nowhere in Spain, AfrikaBurn in South Africa, Israel’s Midburn, Flipside in Austin — even one in Korea! And these Burns, like the one in Black Rock City, are just as amazing as you make ’em.
Best of luck in the sale, and we hope to see you on playa.
