Burning Man Lottery Ticket System Debuts Monday

The Burning Man festival on the Nevada desert may still be nine months away, but organizers’ new lottery system for ticket sales will debut Monday.

Organizers say registration begins Monday and ends Dec. 11 for those who want a crack at 3,000 “pre-sale” tickets at $420 each.

Those securing a ticket will be notified no later than Dec. 19.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports the bulk of the tickets will be sold in a second lottery, whose results will be announced by Feb. 1. Registration for that sale starts Jan. 9.

Up for grabs at that time will be 10,000 tickets for $240 each, 15,000 tickets for $320 each and another 15,000 tickets for $390 each.

Organizers say the first sellout in the event’s 26-year history is prompting the new system.
