    Default Burning Man 2016

    One day....

    The art theme for Burning Man 2016 will be "Da Vinci's Workshop", inspired by the Italian Renaissance of the middle fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries, when an historic convergence of inspired artistry, technical innovation and enlightened patronage launched Europe out of the dark ages and into modernity.

    Our story will focus on the republic of Florence, for it was here, in a city-state of about the same size and population as Black Rock City, that humanist ideals, a rediscovery of science, and funding from a newly moneyed class of entrepreneurs fueled a revolutionary cultural movement that redefined Western civilization.

    I personally really like the theme and will most likely be buying the pre-sale tickets this year. Have many more friends trying to go this year and now that the birgin status is over, it's time to really contribute.

    Lol, at least they're finding a positive way to spin the cultural hijacking of their event by rich finance and tech assholes.

    Christ. You must be loaded to be spending that kind of money. If that's the case, please drive to the event in a vehicle full of top-shelf liquor rather than be seduced by the NV88 douchebag portal.

    Hardly loaded. Just prioritizing as the big vacation of the year.Twice as long as coachella, twice the price (roughly). Although i will say, i have every intention of getting my hands on a cheaper ticket and selling presale at its face value, thus spending the difference on more things to bring to the party.

    I'm going back for the 7th time, but I feel a little tense about this year. The last few years I've spent ****-ponging between my staff stuff and my RL friends for most of the week. The result is that I spend hardly any time exploring. If I can't kick the habit, this'll be my last go-round.

    That said, I really recommend the volunteer experience. Gayte is open to just about anyone who's been to the event before, and it has a fun culture. If you take the plunge, try to stay for event strike. There's no experience quite like the parties that get thrown when the cops have left and there are only ~200 people left on playa.

    Hahahahahaha. Well-played. I approve completely. I would even say you should feel free to jack up the price since the presales are just an effort by the org to wring money out of the SF plutocracy.

    It took a while to accept the idea to buy with the intent to sell, but last year we purchased a presale from someone when we needed a ticket and were thankful for that. Just trying to repay the favor. What more than likely happens we get tickets and split the price of the presale with a friend who wants to go.

    Main sale registration opens today! I went on a whim for a few days in 2012 but am hoping to do the whole thing (and with plenty of prep) this time around. I lived and studied art in Florence years ago, so I'm a big fan of the theme.

    For those of you doing main sale today, it sounds like it's more of a straight lottery at this point:

    In anticipation of high demand and a high server load, a 20-minute waiting room will open Wednesday, March 23 at 11:45am PDT. Actual sales begin at 12:05pm PDT.

    Opening multiple browser tabs won’t improve your chances; when the sale opens, everyone in the 20-minute waiting room will be assigned a place in line that is not related to when they entered the sale. Anyone who joins after 20 minutes will be placed in line after those already in the queue.

    well at least that takes some of the stresws out of the equation. Get in the waiting room and sit back and eat your lunch. No mashing F5 to worry about.

    Went last year, but skipping this year for Glastonbury and 3 weeks in Europe. Good luck everyone, not sure if the sale is over yet. I definitely plan to return, but not sure how soon. I have a hexayurt ready to go along with a huge amount of stuff I never use. Packing, prepping and driving were the totally exhausting, the burn was easy once camp was set up. It was worth all the effort, but I may have overdid it on the camp since I could barely pack up everything without throwing it on top of the cargo van.

    I am still in the process of editing my pictures, but here is what I have from last year.

    Well, that was strangely easy. I picked up two, wife got 2 and know a ton of friends that got some. Much different than last year. Maybe the dust scared everyone off!

    I'd pay a premium for that.

    They just opened the ticket transfer tool and opened the ticket selling board on eplaya.

    I still have 1 presale and one vehicle pass for sale for $1100. about $80 less than face. Below is the ticket price breakdown of the presales if anyone is interested.
