Fire Sale for 2022 Tickets: April 16th and 18th
Ticketing Team here with an update!
We know many of you who didn’t get ticket offers (or the nearly two dozen of you who missed yours and emailed us after the deadline!!) are waiting with bated breath – so here’s the exciting conclusion (maybe) of the 2022 Ticketing Saga (the virus strikes back).
As of this very point, there are a total of 550 tickets that are ready to be sold. To be as fair as possible, we’re holding two separate sale events on drastically different dates and times to allow for folks that have weird work schedules. We will split the current allocation of tickets between these two sales,… so, quick math, 275 per sale.
Our sale dates and times will be:
- Sale 1: Saturday, April 16th at High Noon (I’ve always wanted to say that), Central Time
- Sale 2: Monday, April 18th, at 7pm, Central Time
SET A CALENDAR EVENT RIGHT NOW SO YOU DON’T FORGET!
Maybe even put one of those fancy 15 minute warnings on it. Tell your frens. Maybe have a ticket-getting party or something. In the immortal words of Ru Paul, “Don’t… fuck… it up.”
To prepare for the sale, you must:
- Have a BurnerTickets account. If you don’t have one, register for one here: https://burnertickets.com/wp-login.php?action=register
- Make sure you know your password. Log in. Test it before the sale. If you don’t remember your password, reset it so you’re ready to go.
At precisely the second the sale opens – no sooner – visit the following page: http://lb1.burnertickets.com
If you click it too soon, you won’t see the ticket queue for Lakes of Fire; that is not a bug. That just means our fire sale just hasn’t started yet. Remember, the sales start right on the hour in Central Time. Take a breath, then click again.
When you open the page and see the ticket queue for Lakes of Fire, you are in – the queue, that is. If you refresh, if your phone goes to sleep, if your browser crashes – whatever – you’ll remain in queue in the same place. Finish up the steps, make your payment, and you’ll be the proud owner of a ticket. Then, make sure you sign up to volunteer for at least eight hours this year so you don’t have to deal with this stress next year!
Last Minute Reminders:3>
- Most tickets (volunteer or GA) are transferable this year, so you may have some luck buying one from someone who can’t go. All of those transactions happen on our ticketing specific Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/962806980413945
- Don’t pay more than face value $150 – and if someone is trying to sell you one for more than face value, please report them to the ticketing team.
- Scammers exist. If you buy a ticket from someone, transfers can only happen through BurnerTickets. Make sure you receive and confirm the ticket transfer BEFORE sending payment. If a buyer doesn’t pay, it’s easy for us to reverse the transfer. However, if you send $150 via CashApp or PayPal and the seller disappears, there’s nothing we can do.
- Earlier on this very day, April 11th, we blocked our first scammer who was trying to get a participant to send them $600 worth of tickets (warning bell #1) and “swearing on their life” that they would send the ticket immediately (warning bell #2). If in doubt, email the ticketing team. We love to help. And don’t be out your hard earned money to some POS scammer.
- If you have a kiddo you’re bringing but forgot to buy them a ticket (we get it, tickets are exciting) – we’ll have that fix rolled out soon. Don’t worry, unless you forget and leave them at home, they’re coming with you.
The Ticketing Team wishes you good luck in the sales – we’d love to see you at the Lake in just a few short weeks!
