In the wake of last year’s sellout attendance, Burning Man organizers opted for a lottery system for the pricey ($320 and up) tickets to the annual sex convention for nerds in the Nevada desert — making a lot of longtime Burners super sad. Now, as the time nears for the late August happening, Burners are growing increasingly desperate for tickets. Besides money, here are some examples of what’s up for grabs.
1. Geodesic dome
2. Motorcycle/vintage posters/hydroponic lights
Options here include: motorcyles, vintage Grateful Dead posters, “Indoor horticultural grow light, bulb, and ballast.”
3. Mercedes Benz
This is perhaps most intense: a Mercedes for tickets, because “this may very well be the last opportunity I have to go to Burning Man in my life, for reasons I don’t wish to disclose.”
To be fair, the person posting this is “asking for a friend.”
5. Flight to Australia
6. Phish concert
7. Sex and drugs (possibly)
This is one is a little harder to parse. But the capital “X” in “Spiritual eXperience” (used twice) and the healthy serving of the word “partner” make me think that it might involve kissing/drugs. And some money.
