Your Passport to the Paddock
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.
Burning Seed Tickets went on sale at 7pm on Friday 20 May and adult tickets SOLD OUT at 4.30pm on Tuesday 12 July.
Burning Seed doesn't offer any official channel for you to purchase unwanted tickets... however we suggest that you join and post on the following Facebook group to try and find someone who may be selling theirs:
- Burning Seed Ticket Swap - https://www.facebook.com/groups/burningseedtix
Once you have found someone to sell you a ticket and sorted out the financials (IMPORTANT: please only buy tickets at face value - $185) you'll need to have the seller transfer the ticket to you. To do this you'll need to sign up for a Burner Profile (see below) and then they can transfer the ticket using the process outlined here: http://help.quicket.co.za/customer/en/portal/articles/942501-transfer-tickets-to-someone-else
