If I buy a ticket on eBay, Stub Hub or a re-seller site is it still valid?
Last Updated -
Any ticket or vehicle pass being sold for above face value plus service fees is at risk of being cancelled and not being valid for entry to the event. If a ticket has been auctioned and/or sold for above its face value, we may have already canceled and voided that ticket (check the voided ticket list). To be safe, you should never pay above face value for a ticket.
We have no problem with people selling their unneeded tickets for face value (plus service fees) and this is possible to do using eBay's "Buy it now" feature.
The majority of listings on StubHub and Viagogo are speculative listings, which means that the sellers do not actually own Burning Man tickets to back up their listing. Further, their terms of service are not at all favorable to buyers and the seller may cancel your order right up until a few weeks before the event, leaving you without a ticket. As a community service, please flag and report these listings directly to those sites whenever you see them.
