The Secure Ticket Exchange Program (STEP) is an online system that facilitates the safe resale of tickets that have been purchased directly from Burning Man. It’s designed to provide a hassle-free, secure way of buying and selling tickets while avoiding scammers, counterfeits and scalpers.

  • Anyone who has not already purchased a ticket through one of our other sales can register to purchase a ticket through STEP.
  • Availability of tickets is dependent on participants releasing tickets into the program.
  • Registration for STEP will take place through the Burner Profile. Registration dates are to be announced.
  • As soon as tickets are released into STEP they will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis via email notifications to registered participants.
  • If you are offered a ticket through STEP you will have a specified amount of time to purchase it before your link expires and the ticket is released to the next person.
  • There is an additional $4 per ticket STEP fee for tickets bought through STEP. All other usual fees apply.
  • Ticket orders purchased in STEP are fully transferrable and eligible for name changes.
  • Ticket orders purchased in STEP are Will Call only. No physical tickets will ship before the event.


  • All vehicles entering Black Rock City will be required to have a Vehicle Pass. Motorcycles are exempt from the Vehicle Pass requirement.
  • Vehicle Passes will be available in each of the ticket sales.
  • You may buy up to as many Vehicle Passes as the maximum allowable number of tickets you may purchase in any given sale, i.e. in the Pre-Sale the ticket limit is up to four (4) per person, hence you could buy up to four (4) Vehicle Passes, and in all other sales the ticket limit is up to two (2) per person and you may buy up to two (2) Vehicle Passes.
  • 35,000 Vehicle Passes at $40 each, plus applicable fees.
