Burning Man tickets to go on sale for $380

RENO, Nev. (AP) - Tickets for the Burning Man festival in northern Nevada will soon go on sale, and some veteran participants complain the new prices are too steep. Organizers of the art and music festival announced Friday that an allotment of 51,000 individual tickets will be available for $380 each. The Reno Gazette-Journal reports ( ) tickets opened at $240 last year, with prices steadily rising as the event approached. Of the 58,000 total tickets available this year, 4,000 will be available for $190 to those who qualify for the low-income ticket plan. Another 3,000 tickets have already been sold as part of a holiday promotion. Organizers scrapped last year's lottery system and now are offering tickets on a first-come, first-served basis. The festival is held the week leading up to Labor Day. Information from: Reno Gazette-Journal, (Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
