We love us some techy talk here at Seed, and modelling has helped us track ticket-sale patterns and make predictions over the previous years. But there are the times that the best-laid techy talk is still foiled by spontaneous community combustion.
So, Tier Two Tickets ($145) are now be capped at 850, and we will move into Tier Three tickets ($165) as soon as we sell out or the date listed on ticketing page — whichever comes first.
And while we’re talking tickets, there are few other important things to remember about this year:
- Kids tickets are only sold online this year
- There are no gate sales.
- Your ID will need to match your ticket when you show it at the gate. If somebody else has purchased the ticket, then you need to be able to show a photocopy of that ID along with your ticket.
But you don’t just need your ticket to ride this great Burning Seed train, there are also passouts this year. These are $20 per vehicle and can be organised at the Gate. Locals and people in key organising roles will be exempt with pre-registration.
The passout was introduced this year because too many people were regularly leaving the site last year.
This not only created more work and traffic for the gate crew to manage but undermined the radical self-reliance principle. This would have been an even bigger problem this year given the substantial increase in participants.
So dare to get your radical self-reliance principle on with good preparation, and immerse yourself in the Red Earth City bubble for the week.
