Burning Man has announced the ticket details for this year’s festival.
The event will return to the Black Rock Desert, Nevada between August 28 and September 5, 2022, after the COVID pandemic forced the cancellation of both its 2020 and 2021 editions.
Tickets for this year’s Burning Man will be available via multiple tier releases throughout the months leading up to the festival, the first being tomorrow’s FOMO Sale (February 2).
This initial batch will include higher-priced tickets – costing between $1,500 to $2,500 (£1,100 to £1,850) – with the aim of supporting Burning Man and the wider community that surrounds the event, as DJ Mag reports.
Fans who opt to book through the FOMO Sale give low-income fans a chance to attend the event, as well as helping organisers to fund art grants.
The next tier is the Ticket Aid Program – formerly known as the Low-Income Ticket Program – which provides access to lower-priced tickets for fans whose “applications demonstrate that their circumstances merit financial assistance and convey their intended engagement in Black Rock City in a meaningful contribution to the community”.
