There is a cap on the number of tickets, having a Burner Profile does not guarantee you a ticket
No free tickets, everyone pays
A number of factors go into determining the ticket price each year. The entire Burning Seed organisation continues to work to keep our costs low so that the burn continues to be accessible for as many people as possible. In saying that we continue to see cost pressures, especially in the areas of safety and regulatory services. This includes the costs of medics, security, ambulances and police. We also see the price of insurance continue to rise. Full details on how your ticket money was spent in 2018 will be published very soon.
The ticket price has only seen a small increase in the last few years ($185 in 2016 to $195 in 2017 and 2018) and serious consideration was given this year as to whether an increase was necessary to ensure the event was sustainable. After much deliberation the decision was made to keep the adult ticket price at $195 for 2019. Everyone at Burning Seed HQ* will therefore need to ensure a tight rein is kept on spending so that we don’t go over budget. We are all prepared for this and can assure you it won’t reduce the safety or quality of the burn.
A final note is that we feel it is highly likely that a small increase will be necessary next year. We won’t know this for sure until our finance team see how things end up after this year’s event and budgets are put together for 2020.
*Note: there is no actual HQ. We think it would be a fun place if there was.
Selling your ticket
Some people may purchase a ticket and end up, unfortunately, not being able to attend. If this happens to you and you have a friend or family member who wants to purchase your ticket then you can sort out the financials between yourselves and then transfer the ticket directly through Quicket. The person purchasing the ticket will need to have created a Burner Profile. Once the transfer occurs your original ticket is cancelled and a new one is issued to the purchaser. Do not sell your ticket above face value.
If you don’t know anyone who wants to purchase your ticket then please wait until tickets sell out, at which time we’ll launch our Secure Ticket Exchange Program (STEP). It is an automated online system that matches people with unwanted tickets with those desperate to attend. Full details will be released closer to the launch.
We love our junior Burners and Kids tickets, for those under 16, are $10 (plus fees). There is no need for kids to have a Burner Profile as their tickets are linked to the profile of their parent or guardian. There is no cap on kids tickets and they can be purchased right up to and during the event. Kids tickets must be purchased online, there are no gate sales.
