BitF Ticket Sales

Burn in the Forest is a radically inclusive platform for participation, 100% volunteer run, where everyone contributes.

We require everyone to purchase a ticket, even our most senior volunteer crew, as a result we recognize participants’ contributions through access to a number of sales. There are 5 sales from which you can acquire a ticket, read carefully to see how you they might apply to you.

Volunteer Recruitment Sale

Sale: August 8th @ 8PM – (ONGOING – TIKCETS STILL REMAIN)

Sale Link: https://qkt.io/bitf-2022

We’re left with a small batch of tickets. After carefully reviewing where we are at for volunteer engagement and the needs of the event we decided to create an open sale, no registration required.

Our only ask is that those buying tickets for this sale make a pledge to sign up to be a volunteer!

BitF is 100% volunteer run, no one gets paid, and this couldn’t happen without everyone pitching in. We know you have obligations, and may be helping out somewhere else, have important dates with other frolicking burners, and we’ll do our best to accommodate whatever those important things are.

There’s no way for us to force you to, but we’re asking those who buy a ticket or two to pledge to sign up to be a volunteer, and you’ll have an opportunity to do so at checkout.

Volunteer shifts are usually straight forward, have high impact, and allow you access to an early sale next year! We promise you’ll still have plenty of time to frolic and have fun.

Our sale does not have the same restriction as Burning Man’s. The same credit card can be used to make multiple purchases.

You are getting an error “Promotion code has already been used or is locked temporarily for an active checkout session” – here’s what’s going on: Whenever the purchase link with the code is opened, the code will lock for 30 minutes to allow enough time to enter your purchase information. You may be getting this error because you accidentally closed your browser window, or something else happened to close your current session. Do not panic, just wait for 30 minutes and try the link again.

There is no restrictions on purchasing tickets across multiple sales. We understand you’re likely buying for friends and family, so we do not cross-check for similar names or credit cards.
