Ticketing FAQ

For BitF 2022 there are a total of ~2000 tickets available. Here’s how they’re divided:

  • ~250 – Early volunteers
  • ~350 – Directed Tickets
  • ~1000 – Main Sale & Last Minute Sale
  • ~400 – Volunteer Recruitment Sale

These allocation amounts are just estimates, these are likely to change depending on a number of factors. We’ll do our best to keep these estimates up to date.

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. 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.

The ticket has no restrictions on resale, but like all tickets they are non-refundable. If you do decide to let go of your Volunteer Recruitment Sale ticket be sure to let [email protected] know that you won’t be able to volunteer anymore.

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.
