We’re so glad you want to go to Burning Man! We can’t wait to share it with you. It’s never too early to start planning. After you’ve read this guide, here’s what we suggest you do next.
Come to Our Beginner Campout
Consider attending our Beginner Campout. It’s close to home, and everyone’s welcome. Maybe you haven’t been camping ever or in a long while. That’s okay! We bring some of our Burning Man gear out to the event, and you’ll get an initial exposure to burner culture. We think you’ll have a blast, but maybe it isn’t for you. It’s better to find this out before you’ve spent a lot of time and money.
Focus on Getting a Ticket
Start thinking about getting your Burning Man ticket. Keep track of upcoming dates. The sale processes are a little convoluted. So, don’t be afraid to ask questions.
Start Considering Theme Camps
Start considering camping options. We’re obviously big believers in our Houpla theme camp which specializes in taking new people to Burning Man. But there are other good camps out there as well. Facebook is a great place to network and explore your options.
Well that’s our guide! Best of luck with your first burn. Please let us know if you have any feedback or suggestions about how we can make this guide more helpful by emailing us or posting on Facebook.
