    TONS of people don't have a good time there. They either don't anticipate the heat (and cold at night) or don't bring the right gear/food, or just plain get sick of it (although the latter is rare because these are generally type of people that just show up the last couple days and treat burning man like a frat party anyway)

    LOL they're offering pre-sales at the 3rd tier price? Must be an attempt to avoid another monumental fuckup like In Ticketing produced last year by trying to draw some volume early. It's a retarded notion.

    There will be cheaper tickets available even through CL eventually.

    Have fun with your presales.

    don't buy pre-sale now, there's still opportunities for student and low income tickets... find out when you can submit an application and get 'em cheap.

    I'm not trying to discourage others from the experience (although I would try to discourage those that think this is a music festival. People getting excited over that "lineup" that someone posted is bad news and will give people the wrong impression). My main point is that the presale thing is complete bullshit. But by all means go to burning man, and buy your tickets presale. Show up with a couple gallons of water and a dozen hits of E and go nuts.

    If you're going for the first time just be sure to READ THE GUIDE if you don't have someone with you that's been before. Also if you haven't been before be prepared to spend well over a grand +whatever drugs you think you'll need. There is absolutely nothing but coffee and ice that you can buy up there.

    There are only 2 camps that bring in big name DJs and for many burners this is a huge no-no. It draws the people with the wrong idea. Granted that it can be a mind blowing experience to stroll by Opulent Temple and see infected mushroom playing in that atmosphere, but big names are not the point. If you spent your time dashing from one spot on the playa over to another every night trying to catch some name you've heard a million times then (and I guarantee you'll fail if you try) you'd be missing the rest of experience. It's an art festival no matter what some people say about it being a big rave. The accusations of it being a rave are spawned by people seeing scenes of those huge camps filled with rich kids. Thousands of people spend their entire year working on projects for no other reason than to contribute something mindblowing. You add in a bunch of ravers wearing glowsticks who just came to see fucking Tiesto and do nothing but crowd and fuck up your art car, or push in behind you while you're trying to enjoy music or something, and it discourages people who do contribute. Lots of camps these days are even breaking down a day or two early because Friday and saturday night are unbearable.

    grumble grumble yeah I know. But once you see the extreme effort and expense people put into it you'll realize.


    It's not a fucking music festival. If you just want to do drugs and listen to the big name DJs then just do that in a proper club MUCH easier.

    I would definitely be going for the experience and not the music. I would even go if there was no music put on.

    Alas, I'm not going next year but i've been seriously considering it (for at least a couple days, more than 4 isnt feasible with my work). I agree wholeheartedly with you Jack.

    the few of my buds who've gone in the past say it's like nothing else they've ever experienced, near indescribable... i'm wondering though if it would be better to camp with good friends or beforehand just connect with another camp that looks interesting and hopefully it'll work out?? hah

    maybe if you're setting up your own camp or need to bring the luxuries of home because you can't rough it.. Michele went with nothing, came back with more than she could carry and didn't spend a dime.. (i will admit that she's an exception)

    everything there works on the barter system, so i'd say you don't need to spend anything once you leave home, provided you bring the right clothing and lots of water..

    No. this is the biggest misconception about burning man. Do NOT go up there thinking it's a "barter system". If anything they'll describe it as a "gift economy" but do not under any circumstances go up there without everything you'll need and expect others to take care of you (that is unless you're part of a larger camp and it IS someone's specific job to cook or shade you or whatever). It's called radical self-reliance (read the guide). This is not a fucking hippie festival where you should expect to freeload off of everyone else's effort and resources. If you run into or are camped near random people that offer you food or other things then great. That shit happens all the time, but it's not a fucking barter system. Anyone who's been there and has the balls to say that is an idiot.

    You may think you can bring your little backpacking tent and some fucking trader joes dried food but you will be miserable. Your tent should be LARGE and it MUST be shaded. Don't expect to be able to sleep after dawn unless these conditions are met. And you can laugh at some of the folks who bring luxuries but once you get there you'll realize that's the fucking point for some. burning man is not about "roughing it" or proving how tough you are. Producing surreal shit in the desert is the point. You need to spend effort lighting your camp so that you don't kill yourself on someone's guy line or rebar, etc. etc. This is not like regular camping. Don't bring healthy boring food because you wont want to eat it. Bring shit that's tasty because when you're strung out or your normal rhythms are off you won't want to keep eating. This shit all costs money. You may happen to know someone that floated through the experience with no effort, but for every one of those there are a dozen responsible people who create an environment where that person can survive.

    Well, I might bring an empty fanny pack, because a naked dude in a fanny pack is way funnier than just a naked dude.

    I made the decision that Burning Man is going to my my festival this year. There are some things about it that are really appealing to me. The idea of the gift economy is something that I've read about - not pertaining to Burning Man per se, but in general.

    I just got offered to camp with one of the BIG theme camps this year. I'm mulling it over. I will probably accept their offer. The people from this camp that I've talked to are all genuinely nice people.

    I'm going to begin constructing my hexayurt for my shelter. I've already started thinking about operating a 'soup kitchen' a couple of nights for anyone who wants some until it's gone. My 18 quart soup pot could feed a bunch of people, I think. Since I'm not an artist, this is one way that I can participate. Help with participation is another reason I'm thinking I'll camp with this group. They've been running the camp for a few years now and are all pretty seasoned Burners. They'll help me along my preparation and the mental taxation of radical self reliance, since I've never gone before.

    etc.
    There are enormous sound systems that rival systems at some of the music festivals. Opulent Temple, Root Society, Do Lab and Nexus bring enormous sound systems and have world class DJ's spinning everynight. Last year names like; Freq Nasty, Bassnectar, Carl Cox, DJ Dan and one of the guys from Thievery Corp were just some of the names on the playa.
    No one cares what shows you've seen, are currently seeing or are going to see!!!!!
