YOUtopia is an official Burning Man regional event that is modeled on the Ten Principles. YOUtopia happens because of the hard work of volunteers all year long. In the spirit of communal effort, we require everyone from the producers of YOUtopia to the famous DJ on stage, to buy a ticket to participate in the event. This has always been a part of the YOUtopia culture and it is what sets it apart from other events in our region.
Tickets are sold in the general sale in three tiers, with all three tiers available at the same time. Every participant is encouraged to purchase their ticket at the highest tier they can afford. However….
In the spirit of Radical Inclusion, Scholarship tickets are available for those in our community who may otherwise be unable to afford a regular tier ticket, or who are making massive contributions through volunteering or art (please tell us in the "WHY" question at the end of the application). The Scholarship ticket program is subsidized by the higher tiers to create an additional opportunity for participation. Scholarship tickets are awarded and distributed by the YOUtopia Ticketing & Will Call team.
New ELIGIBILITY requirements this year
If you received a “low income” ticket last year, or any year for that matter, you MAY apply again. (Yes, that means you can apply again!)
Scholarships are based on your submission piece and the quality of your application. (This does not mean that you have to be master sculptor or painter - but you do have to put some heart and soul into your submission.)
Details on Scholarship tickets
Scholarship tickets at $45 are available and will be distributed on a first-come, first qualify basis.
Deadline is September 15th at midnight BUT we will be reviewing applications periodically through the summer, and awarding tickets until they are gone. Applications are time stamped, so apply early!
