The Burning Man organization launched a new ticket buying system for the 2012 event. It quickly turned into a nightmare for both those wanting to get tickets and the Burning Man people selling them. Lots of long-time attendees and artists were aced out and the scalpers came out in force. Burning Man made some changes as the fiasco unfolded, which helped to mollify some disappointed Burners. What changes may be forthcoming when 2013 tickets go on sale remain to be seen. You can check up on this at Burning Man ticket sales. The art theme for Burning Man 2013 is Cargo Cult.
