Can I sell my tickets for more than what I paid for them?

No - absolutely not. We are an official Burning Man Regional event and selling tickets above face value is against the very core of our values. Please don’t do it; we hate to cancel your order and then you and the new buyer are without tickets. With that in mind - please do not purchase tickets for more than their value.

I can't see my tickets when I login - what do I do?

Make sure you are logging in with the right email address. If you have forgotten your password, select “forgot my password” to reset or contact Eventbrite directly.

Some other common problems:

  1. Did you purchase the ticket from someone else? Did they change the name on the ticket, AND add your email address?
  2. Did they SAVE at the bottom of the page?
  3. Are you the 2nd edit from the original ticket buyer? If this is the case - contact the original ticket buyer to make the changes. If you have no idea who that is - contact tickets@sdyoutopia.com and include the Order number and we may be able to look it up.

SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

In the spirit of Radical Inclusion, YOUtopia offers a Scholarship Program (formerly known as the Low Income Ticket Program) for eligible participants. Scholarship tickets are awarded on a first-come, first-qualified basis. Deadline is September 15th at midnight, but we may sell out long before that - so get your application in early!

I'm part of a Theme Camp or Art Grant - do I automatically get a ticket?

Everyone buys a ticket to attend the event, including the YOUtopia production team and volunteers. It’s an important ethos to our shared event and how we fund so much art. As part of a Theme Camp or Art Grant, you can apply for admission passes through the Scholarship/Art Grant programs, but they are not guaranteed, nor are they free.

I have kids - do I have to purchase a ticket for them?

Yes - but kids under 12 (on or before Oct. 19th) are free. You still need to select “ADMISSION CHILDREN (<12)” when you purchase your tickets. Kids must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian, and when you arrive at the gate, all minors will be registered with a photo and matching wristbands.

What is the difference between CAR CAMPING and QUIET CAR CAMPING?

Car camping passes are for folks who must have their cars with them - BUT are ONLY allowed in designated CAR CAMPING areas. We now have 25 QUIET CAR CAMPING spots that are available in Area 1 with the RVs and limited to area 1.

Each space is approximately 10' x 20' for your vehicle, tent, and 27 hula hoops. Spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

What’s the deal with RVs this year?

This year, we are only selling RV with HOOK UPS passes in the general sale and those passes are for AREA 1 ONLY. Each RV will be assigned a designated space by City Planning based on the dimensions of your RV (questions will appear when you purchase your RV with HOOK UP pass). Hook-ups provide both electricity and water (NO grey water hook-ups).

All other RV’s without hook ups must submit this application to City Planning if you wish to purchase a “Theme Camp RV” pass or “Placed RV” pass (not in Area 1) ($150). Once approved by City Planning, a special ticket link will be sent from Ticketing & Will Call to purchase an RV pass. NO RV PASSES WILL BE SOLD AT THE GATE. If you wish to have your RV at the event, but do not need hook ups, and are not part of a Theme Camp - you can still apply for a Placed RV pass with this same application. Applications will be reviewed on a first come first served basis until the number of available RV passes have been sold (approx. 50). Please note: All decisions regarding approval or placement by City Planning are final. You can apply for RV/Large trailer in RV Placement Application

I have a lot of really expensive equipment or art - can I have my car with me at camp?

Contact City Planning cityplanning@sdyoutopia.com to make this request. You must be approved prior to the event.

I have a Service Animal - can I bring it with me?

NO - Due to the sensitive nature of the environment at the La Jolla Indian Reservation we ask that you leave your non-humanoids at home. We are on an Indian Reservation and must follow the rules set by the Reservation. Please do NOT bring your furry or non-humanoid friends - they will NOT be admitted at the Gate.

If you have questions - please contact our In and Out Hub for more information inout@sdyoutopia.com

I’m having issues with Eventbrite - what do I do?

Go to the Eventbrite help center or for technical questions - please contact 24/7 Eventbrite support at https://www.eventbrite.com/contact-us

Any non-technical questions - contact Ticketing & Will Call tickets@sdyoutopia.com

Will a Car Camping pass allow me to park/sleep in my car in my Theme Camp?

NO. Car camping passes only allow you to park and sleep in the designated Car Camping areas, which are separate from Theme Camp areas. If you want to park/sleep in your vehicle in a Theme Camp, you must be granted a Theme Camp or Art Grant Support Vehicle pass. Limited numbers of these passes are approved by City Planning prior to the event though the Theme Camp Placement process. Read more in Placement Q&A.
