The tickets were gone in a flash, literally!
Burning Man tickets are the most coveted festival tickets for any person on the planet. The tickets for the festival went live on the 29th of March and guess what, the tickets sold out in 35 minutes.
Yup, that’s right. A collective 30,000 festival tickets were swiped clean by the festival’s fanatics according to the Reno Gazette Journal. The festival has sold out each year since its inception in 1986 but this is another level of insanity. The tickets were on sale for $425 or INR 28,000 approx. (excluding taxes) and 10,000 vehicle passes were sold at $80 each or INR 5,000 approx. (excluding taxes).
This year, the festival will be held from 27th of August to 4th of September. But you might still have a chance to get a few tickets.
An additional 500 tickets, costing $1,200 each, will be released on the 5th of April and applications for the low-income ticket program will be accepted until April 17th.
So keep those fingers crossed and your credit cards ready!
