Organizers say it only took 44 minutes to sell all 38,000 tickets offered on Wednesday.
It's the single biggest block of tickets that will be sold for the counter-culture festival that attracted a record-breaking 68,000 people to the Black Rock Desert last year.
Burning Man spokeswoman Megan Miller tells the Reno Gazette-Journal (http://tinyurl.com/lefbwb4) everything went smoothly with their new online ticketing partner, Ticketfly, where tickets sold for $380.
Some 3,000 tickets were sold on a presale basis for $650. Another 15,000 tickets are set aside mostly for theme camps and 4,000 for qualifiers in a low-income program at a cost of $190. The final 1,000 public tickets go on sale July 31 for $380.
