Your Passport to the Paddock
Tickets for Burning Seed 2018 have now sold out!
Scroll down for details on buying and selling unwanted tickets through our Secure Ticket Exchange Program (STEP)
Tickets are the key to creating Burning Seed and everybody buys one. Here we choose crowd creation over commercialisation: there are no sugar-daddy sponsors or advertising oracles. The only pockets are yours and mine.
This means a ticket purchase is the baseline way in which everyone participates at Burning Seed: there are no free or volunteer-for-entry tickets for community crew, artists, performers or media. In a not-for-profit, collaborative event like ours, we all pay, play, work and gain — and that includes our lead community organisers too. And there’s much ado about the mula raised. With these funds, we provide art grants, build the infrastructure of the city, hire necessary equipment and create the Effigy and Temple.
It also helps us move beyond the limits of a one-week city to a culture that connects, creates and collaborates with its ever-growing community through other events and initiatives.
How to purchase tickets in 3 easy steps!
- Prior to purchasing a ticket, you'll need to set up a Burner Profile through our ticket provider Quicket. A Burner Profile ensures the safety of our participants by adding names to tickets and you must show photo ID which matches that name when you arrive at Burning Seed. You will be prompted to set up a profile when you try to buy a ticket.
- If you already have a burner profile, you'll need to update this before buying a ticket. You'll need to log into our ticket provider Quicket with the same details you did in previous years - either via your email address or Facebook profile - whichever you used. Once you log in and try to purchase a ticket, you will be prompted to update your profile.
- Once your profile is all good to go - get your hands on a ticket! Ensure you complete the transaction to secure your spot on the Paddock.
How to sell/transfer a ticket
You can sell your ticket at any time either privately or, once tickets sell out, though the Secure Ticket Exchange Program (STEP).
Private Sale - Tickets should only be sold at face value and the ticket must be transferred on Quicket to the purchaser. Once the transfer occurs, the old ticket and barcode are cancelled and a new ticket is issued in the purchaser's name. The purchaser will need to have a Burner Profile.
STEP - STEP is where people who want to sell their tickets are matched with people who want to buy tickets and the whole process is administered by Quicket. Sellers put their ticket up for sale on STEP (face value) and people who want to buy tickets register their details through STEP. Buyers are on a first come first serve basis - so the sooner you sign up for STEP, the sooner you could be matched with a ticket. Once a buyer is matched with a seller, they have 48 hours to complete the transaction before it is offered to the next buyer in line.
