There is a small glimmer of hope for those of you still wanting to get tickets for Burning Man 2012.
On Friday, August 3, 2012, there will be a special first come sale of 1,000 tickets, but you won't be admitted to the online sale site unless you register during a 12-hour sign up period between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. Pacific Standard Time (PST) on Wednesday, August 1. Those who get in the queue will have the opportunity to buy one ticket per person.
According to Burning Man, these tickets have become available because the permit for 2012 allows for a population of up to 60,900 at the event. They plan to sell just under that number so as to avoid exceeding the limit, which happened in 2011. Get details at More Burning Man 2012 Tickets Becoming Available.
For information about the permit process and details thereof, go to the BLM press release titled "BLM Issues Decision for 2012 Burning Man Event."
