    Tickets went on sale in January and, according to communications manager Andie Grace, and the last ticket sold on Sunday, July 24. Burning Man is an eight-day festival that becomes a 'city in the desert.' (Published Wednesday, Jul 27, 2011)

    For the first time in 25 years, tickets for the this year's Burning Man have sold out.

    Organizers stopped selling tickets when they reached the 50,000 limit set by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. 

    Burning Man is an infamous counter-culture program for self-expression, self-reliance and communal connections. The eight-day camp-out is held every year at the Black Rock Desert, just north of Reno at an area known as the “Playa.” The city itself was created just for the festival.

    Burning Man says this about the event, "Trying to explain what Burning Man is to someone who has never been to the event is a bit like trying to explain what a particular color looks like to someone who is blind."

    Third party vendors are still offering tickets, but Burning Man officials are warning Burners to be sure that the third party vendor is reliable. 

    If you are driving up without a ticket, know you are going at your own risk. Tickets will not be sold at the gate.  Black Rock officially opens August 29. The man will burn September 3. Everyone needs to be out  by September 5.
