Main Ticket Sale starts Monday, Sept. 30 at 8 pm Eastern time
There are three steps to getting an AfterBurn ticket.

  1. Read the ticket policies, so you understand what you’re getting yourself into.
  2. Buy your AfterBurn Ticket for $105. Vehicle passes and RV passes are also available, and quantities are limited.
  3. Read on for step 3!

Step 3: No spectators: Real Burners volunteer
Once you have your ticket in hand, you are ready to start participating. We are a 100{110293bbcb802f0d3273ec3ed2a9036c4a117c04a3d38823d15ba3bc99706c52} volunteer-run event, and we need every one of you shiny participants! Here’s how it works: Go to the SignupGenius link and start reading about volunteer shifts. Pick a couple that sound interesting and sign yourself up.

Are you new to AfterBurn? That’s OK, we’ll show you what to do. When you sign up for volunteer shifts in advance, you help the event run smoothly. We promise you’ll make new friends while you’re volunteering — maybe you’ll even meet Bob!

Theme camps are magical places
We’ve received about a dozen submissions for theme camps, those magical places where the community gathers and does fun stuff. If you’re planning a theme camp, get yourself over to the Theme Camps page on the website to submit it: Remember, the best placement does not go to last-minute entries!

Got art? Bring it!
AfterBurn welcomes all kinds of art — if you have a piece you’d like to bring, let us know how big it is, so we can help you place it! For the first time, we have lots of room for indoor art in our giant Indaba gallery. There also will be a blacklight gallery and a Florida Burns history museum. Use this form to submit your self-funded art.

Art grant submissions are now closed and community voting has concluded on those 11 pieces. We’ll get back to you with those results in next week’s Blurb.

This could be you…
