Yep, bully for you! And if you have extras please be kind and sell them for only the amount you paid for them.

Ninzy, it sounds like you'll be back, right? Does this mean BollyVille is a GO?

I won 4 tickets in the December presale.. Expensive? Yup. Did I need 4? Nope. I needed 1. Well, main sale has come and gone, and lo-and behold, 1 other person in my camp got tickets. Everyone is moaning, but 3 close friends of mine are set as I promised them my spare tickets just in case.
The moral of the story is, ask your burner friends about tickets. It seems like EVERYONE requested more then they needed, and that means many people have spares. STEP is a good start, but 3 friends of mine that have tickets now thanks to me aren't freaking out. Yes, they are still looking for cheaper options via STEP, but they know worse comes to worse they have tickets.

You have two options. Accept your fate ( or Ka for all you Steven King fans ) and stop your bitchen. I have been utterly amazed ( and this is coming from a sociology/psychology/philosophy major with six years of semi Ivy league years under my belt ) at the colossal amount of cow poop that has been coming out of peoples mouths. You cross a road in any city and your chances of getting run over by some bleach blond driving a hot pink hummer while texting on her iPhone is about 20%. Same goes for getting into BM. It has a limited human capacity ( thanks to some egomaniac suit in some government office who likely has a small penis and likes to over compensate ) so that the present LEO's and Yellow Shirts can keep up with the crowd. If you walk up to your favorite bar and see that it's full ( the number of occupants actually being a safety precaution in case of a fire ) and the bouncer says "Sorry pal/lady, I can't let you in,..it's unsafe to over fill the place" ..are you one of those pathetic schmucks that cries like a two year old and gives the bouncer a hard time? ( And, having been a bouncer more than once in my life, I can not tell you how often that is. By the way, I really wanted to knock a few teeth out...just FYI ). So, for the love of all that is Sacred and Damned simultaneously....STOP YOUR FRACKING COMPLAINING AND JUST MAN/WOMEN THE FUCKIN HELL UP! If you are truly deserving, the Gods and Goddesses that give any kind of a shit about this infinitesimal planet in the boon docks of existence will reward those who are worthy. The rest of you need to take a chill pill, and please.....just accept the hand you have been dealt.

It's official, we've gotten tickets so we're going yay!!!

(NOT to lord it over the unlucky, just being happy here!)

I don't know HOW they can best do it, I mean, there's a limit so SOMEOne's going to be excluded. First-come-first serve punishes the poor (or poor planner!), lottery's at least random... How to eliminate scalping (also punishes the poor)? Non transferrable tickets? The logistics of this are a pain.

Hopefully to you serious burners that end up not going, hopefully someone new will find the passion and add to it for the future!

I was so happy when I got my ticket confirmation yesterday. However, today it feels bittersweet after I polled my campmates to find that we have 5 tickets between the 15 of us. We're still holding out for later sales, but in the past we've all been ticketed by now, so we're feeling pretty nervous.

I have a question for everyone who was awarded a ticket. How much did you pay per ticket? I hope I don't sound paranoid or anything... Just wondering..

i was rooting for ya man. glad you got a hold of one, i hope that second one comes as easily as the first one :)

Going by the post on the burning blog: "As a result, there are a lot more tickets being requested than there are tickets available " and the fact that there are many stories of theme camps with 5/15 or even 5/50 people in some cases having gotten tickets, I'm guessing it's closer to 100+k.

Yeek!

Be careful with numbers!

Why would a festival that's never gone over 55k suddenly mushroom to over 100k?

sadly we did not get our 2 tickets in the lotto , we will try to find other ways of returning to the playa and hope by thinking positive it will work out somehow. Even though it stings a little bit I am happy for those who got tickets and will put out in the universe the true and pure desire to go home once again.

we could barely afford the $240 tickets so we hope that people will be kind hearted and sell an extras for what they paid for it. only two people in our whole camp got any tickets so I am sure many people are changing their plans around right now, will try STEP and put our faith in the laws of attraction!!!

Got my ticket at top tier pricing... everyone that has extra tickets be sure to use STEP and not a third party! Keep the spirit of Burning Man alive in our community, and don't use this as an opportunity to get a profit!

I didn't say 100k people, I said 100k tickets requested due to people hoarding. All just conjecture of course.
