Do I need a ticket?
You will need to purchase a discounted ticket which includes a camping pitch, a parking pass, early arrival, and late departure privileges.
Why do I need a ticket to be a speaker at Burning Woman Festival?
Our team put in a lot of work in selecting the workshops, talks and activities to ensure a magical weekend at Burning Woman Festival. This includes reviewing the application, an interview for new contributors, online meetings, obtaining, and providing the details to the web designer and social media co-ordinator, managing tickets, marketing your attendance, arranging resources and a listing in the festival guide etc. In addition, the costs of creating a niche magical event are high and to encourage commitment and in exchange for delivering your talk, you also have the whole weekend to connect, network and enjoy a wonderful time attending other talks, workshops, and entertainment.
Do I need to purchase a speaker ticket at the time of application?
Yes, once you have purchased your ticket your application is reviewed, and you are contacted to arrange an online meeting if you are a new applicant. Should your application not be success you will receive a full refund. You can also submit your application if you have already purchased a standard ticket. If you are accepted, we will credit the difference to a gift card for you to use on bookable activities etc. Please note your ticket is non-refundable should you be unable to attend the festival.

Can I deliver more than one talk or apply to run a workshop too?

When you apply for additional areas just mark the option that you already have a ticket if you have already completed an application.
