***SOLD*** - two will call tickets!

Postby mervin » Mon Aug 08, 2011 9:35 pm

Before you get all excited, yes I'm raising the price. Burning Man is a for-profit event, and in high demand this year. Got beef? Deal with it. Flame all you want; rest assured I will not be reading it. I created this account for the sole purpose of selling my partner and I's tickets to this year's burn - I'll only be checking my PMs.

Unforeseen and extremely boring to hear about circumstances have barred us from going. Yes, I am heartbroken. There is always next year, however. Having a little extra cushion for this school year thanks to the saved expense and these tickets is about all that is consoling me. They are probably on the cheaper end of tickets you will find. SO...

2 WILL CALL tickets to Burning Man - $950


If you are unfamiliar with the process of changing will call tickets, here is all you need to know: http://tickets2.burningman.com/faq.php#elsepickup

We will be following that process by the letter.
First one to PM me gets them. May you all have a happy and safe burn.

How does one PM someone?
Personal message?
Sorry, I am in the dark.
Regardless. I would love to have your tickets.
My two friends are totally worth it and amazing!

Yes, PM means Personal Message. Look for the icon with "PM" on it on the right side of the window, below the user's name/icon. Click it and it'll take you to the screen where you can write your message.

$475 per ticket from a scalper? What a pathetic worm.
He's willing to rip you off and you're going to trust that he'll put the tickets in your name once he has your money? And you'lll never find out he didn't until you're at willcall looking at the gate person telling you "I don't have anything under your name..."

A fool and their money...

I would be able to go if the airfares hadn't gone up 2 weeks before the date I wanted to go... hmmm last minute tickets being a higher price, just like Burning Man tickets are. Burning Man has a tier ticketing system in place for just this reason, and if they were still selling tickets, they would be sold at higher prices too - basic supply & demand.

Don't slate Burners selling their tickets at higher prices. We all have our own stories to tell; mine is I bought my WIll Call ticket ages ago, been waiting on hearing whether I have early entry or not, but now can't get flights at a reasonable price. Strange that the Burner community is not rallying round to help fund my flights... and why should they? If I had bought them ages ago I might have got a cheaper price. So why should it be different to sell your BM ticket at a bit higher price?

It could sell on eBay for thousands, but its not, they are on eplaya for a bit extra.

Airfares always go up as you get closer to the flight date, and can tend to bounce around when the currency market/value of the US dollar starts getting fidgety. Sorry to hear you didn't get something locked in before all the debt ceiling nonsense, and good luck getting something sorted out.

My really big fucking beef with your post is not the price of your tickets, but the dreadful use of the English language in your post. "My partner and I's tickets"? What the fuck is that all about?

How about something like "mine and my partner's tickets"?

Sorry! Please continue to try to gouge someone on the price now. :D

i think i gave up, this is ridiculous... the number of hours spent on this message board and CL.... all to beg and coerce someone into SELLING you his overpriced tickets to an amazing event 3000 miles away? (from Miami...) getting more difficult to justify every day...

lol that being said, i'm still looking for 2 tickets :)

I am starting to see more and more people on our local boards flake out on going and offering tickets. If you have not joined the regional groups, you should do so. This will allow you to pick up your ticket locally as well.

Just a quick update... I managed to book my flights! Persistence pays off! Had to email a few screen grabs of deals to Flight Centre, but since they price match, I'm now sorted! Shows it's good to shop around & do a bit of leg work..

See you on the playa! :D

My name is Forrest.

I would be absolutely grateful if you sell me your ticket/tickets please. I have done a lot of volunteer work every year more than most and I was going to help build the city for free this year but to my surprise they did not need me because they maxed out with volunteer’s way before usual. I was caught off guard when tickets sold out. It is my birthday party and I just graduated college a few weeks ago (first in my family to graduate in a very Virgo field called Decision Sciences), so it is also my graduation party, all the members of my incredible edible mushroom band have their golden passes and are ready to combat the darkness. Please call me or email me NOW!
323 680 3042
PS. Although I don't like paying more for tickets I think your increase is marginal and fair. I don't mind -for whatever gas or time you spent searching for the tickets; I mean if you are in need.

Sincerely Yours: Forrest Emerson Skylure
Burning Man ticket, I need it,ahhhhh

Note that this is OP's 1st post on ePlaya - ie. new account.
That does not necessarily mean scam but it is one more thing to consider.

Also, I know we permit reselling of tickets at face value and information about where to get a greeat deal on xyz, but selling tickets at a profit is absolutely commerce - is that permitted on this thread?

Mervin has just informed me that his sale fell through, and that his tickets are back on the market. Thread's re-opened, good luck to all involved.

Long story boring, my buyer found the tickets she needed and the extra she wanted from another buyer. Leaving me, unfortunately, with tickets that I need to sell as soon as possible. I am lowering the price, and have messaged some people who replied initially. The first person to PM me will be the new buyer. Hope to hear from you soon!

I PMed you. i have the money right now. I don't deserve to go because i havn't been yet. I've the last 7 years i couldn't afford to go. My heart weeps every moment my family is there without me. I don't deserve to go because I've been to every DCOM and am officially a poser. I don't deserve to go because I worked my ass off (and I have a big ass) this year to make this happen and it sold out! I do deserve to go because I might not be here next year for another chance. Its do or die. Hows that?

TO the person/post above me> THINK you might have posted yours in the wrong thread. You were talking about the one where the person was asking "why you DON'T deserve to go," yeah? This was a "buyer backed out" one. Believe they're different.
