aka Info from the Ticketing Page
There comes a point in time when you decide that you have no other choice but to venture to the Love Burn.
Perhaps you first heard about this magical island event in Miami years ago and are returning home or by chance, you just heard about it yesterday. Either way, we cannot wait to welcome you home. But first, we are sure that you are curious about getting tickets to participate in the LOVE BURN 2024 Sparkle Galactica: A Space Opera.
So don your fabulous space helmet, adjust your reading spectacle, and get ready for some slightly dull but seemingly necessary rules and regulations.
We know, rules and regs are boring but we don’t want you showing up at the Sparkle Galactica only to be turned away by a snarky burner because you were unprepared.
THOU MUST HAVE A VALID TICKET IN HAND
First off, like any event that requires equipment, venue, insurance, portos, lights,
la dee da, et cetera, to run, there is a fee that buys you a ticket to attend, er we mean participate.
Let’s pause right there real quick… if you tell anyone who knows better that you are “attending “ a Burn, you will be
considered a true alien and not just someone simulating one.
BURNS ARE ABOUT DOING
The first suggestion we offer is to change your mindset. You will not “attend” a burn, but rather, you do “participate.” Doesn’t that just feel better.
THOU SHALT BECOME A PARTICIPANT, NOT AN ATTENDEE
You are now considering yourself to be (or soon be after you have your ticket in hand) an active participant who purchased, acquired or somehow earned a ticket to participate in this magical Love Burn 2024 Sparkle Galactica. And you will also actively volunteer for the event which is another great way of participating, making new friends and showing off your skill sets while helping everyone.
WHILE WE ARE TALKING SEMANTICS - WORDS MATTER
Love Burn is NOT a festival. Don’t call it that. You will ruffle the feathers of the veteran Burnalien who is ready to teach a young Burnalien a thing or two about semantics and the vast differences between a Burn and a festival. Got 20 minutes to read about it now? Nah, we didn’t think so. Just call it a burn, an event, a community gathering, the most amazing experience in the galaxy, or even a social experiment.
IF YOU FAIL TO PLAN, YOU PLAN TO FAIL
Do NOT expect to show up the week of the event and get a ticket at the gate. That does not happen. You will be turned away and told that we look forward to seeing you next year. Seriously, that is exactly what we tell the unprepared Burnalien who shows up without a ticket.
A fool asks a question that he already knows the answer to and expects a different response. But alas, there are not, will not and will never be…refunds. Don’t even ask. There are No Refunds. Repeat, there are No Refunds.
BUT THE UNIVERSE IS MAKING IT IMPOSSIBLE TO PARTICIPATE
Sometimes, the universe says that there is no way to participate in the Love Burn. It has sadly happened to others and could happen to you. How do you deal with it if the ticket is not refundable? Finally, a great question. We have been waiting for one of those from you. Your amazing, magical, nearly impossible to get Love Burn ticket is Transferrable!
How do I TRANSFER My Ticket?
Ticket transfers are easy. They are processed through an official ticket transfer company that has processed ticket transfers for events all over the world. This is the only path to safely transfer your ticket to another amazing participant.
The link will be on your ticket so don’t ask how here. You are here to buy a ticket not transfer one cause life throws a sour lemon in your plans the week before the event.
What About The PANDEMIC?
The world has been in a chaotic state for so long that we mask up if we choose and don’t if we want, unless you live somewhere other than Florida. In addition, the universe is being tossed around by a silly monkey who keeps us on our guard. So pandemic, pox or some crazy new funk that appears, we will be following those aliens at the CDC for guidance and regulations, however outlandish they may seem.
Bring PROOF of Who You Are
Once you finally have your ticket in hand and arrive at the gate to get in, you and your fellow compatriots will need to present a legal form of identification that states each astronaut or Burnalien’s legal name matching their signed waiver.
YOUR PLEDGE to Be Responsible for You
We are not babysitters. Neither are you. Each of us makes a personal choice to walk, meander, curtsy, roll, dance or crawl through the gates and accepts that all experiences, necessities, medicines, food, water, clothing, shelter, accidents, altercations, sunburns, dance moves, twerks, animal encounters, bug bites, fender benders, headaches, orgasms, and actions that arise are the responsibility of the individual and not the event.
Thou Shalt Always Get CONSENT
What is consent? Before any action that involves another person, there is a moment where consent is requested. Whether you are offering a cup or tea or a booty call, you must ask for and get consent before pouring that cup of tea, taking a picture or tapping that you know what.
NO MEANS NO
If you don’t know, you must assume the other party did not give consent. If they say no, it means no. If they say maybe, it means no. If they say nothing or stay quiet, it means no. If they are asleep, it means no. If they say yes and then change their mind, it means no. If they are too drunk or out of it to answer you in their clear mind, it means no.
Stay with me here, so when is a YES A YES?
If you ask for consent, and they say yes and mean it, then it is a yes. And you must get a yes every time. Never assume that because they wanted that cup of tea an hour ago, means they want another cup of tea now. Always ask first.
Thou Shalt Sign A WAIVER Accepting Responsibility for Thine Actions
Speaking of yeses. If you decide to participate in the Love Burn, you are giving us consent that you willingly will sign a long and detailed waiver written in relatively simple but extremely boring legalese.
What Happens If You Do Not Consent
If you decline or refuse to turn in a properly signed waiver, you waive your right to participate. In other words, you said no and no means no. If you do not consent, you cannot enter the event. Your ticket will not be refunded. See the section above about no refunds and transferring tickets.
Where is the WAIVER?
Take a minute and read the waiver. We are asking your consent and you are willingly giving us your yes. Please take a moment or 20 now to read the waiver, you can read it right on the event website by clicking on Waiver. See how easy it is to ask for and get consent?
What About My RIDE?
Bringing a vehicle requires purchasing a parking pass per vehicle. There are a limited number of car, RV and oversized RV passes due to space limitations and the fact that Magic Mike Live took a lot of the extra parking spaces we were hoping to reserve this year. Be proactive and collaborate with friends to carpool, ride share, split an RV rental, get a ticket to the aforementioned MML and/or Uber to the venue. Once you have access to a ticket, also purchase your vehicle pass. Please read the details on the FAQ page and do not ask us 100 questions about your vehicle pass or if you can sleep in your vehicle. Those answers are in the FAQ Survival Guide, another fun but long-winded read.4
I want to FLY…How Far Away is the AIRPORT?
Both the Miami (14 miles away) and Fort Lauderdale (30 miles away) airports are not that far away. Please do not rent a car just to get to the event from the airport, ask a friend, or take an Uber or Lyft. And no, there is not a horse and buggy or shuttle service available from the airport to the event. Practice Radical Self-Reliance.
No Other Creatures Allowed
While we are thinking about things that move. The venue does not allow people to bring in any animals.
So do not bring your horses, monkeys, lemurs, dogs, cats, rabbits, elephants or any pets to the venue. Nature has provided more than enough animals for the venue to handle. You may happen upon raccoons, squirrels, mosquitoes, no-see-ums, crocodiles, birds, jellyfish and fish as you wander through the event. Try not to interact with any of these creatures.
This is their home year round and we are the visitors.
Memorize Thy 10 Principles
There will be a quiz. Seriously. Read, study and try to understand the 10 principles first established by the amazing and gone-but-not-forgotten Larry Harvey, the OG original founder of Burning Man. As Love Burn spawned from the seeds cultivated by Burning Man into its own Principle-abiding entity, so shall you consent to abide by those same principles when you pass through the sacred gates to enter the magical Sparkle Galactica: A Space Opera.
Many Shall Enter, Few Shall Leave Unchanged
The principles become part of life and carry onward into the default world. Read the 10 principles at theloveburn.com/principles.
Can I Vend or be Paid to Perform? No.
There is absolutely NO VENDING at this event. Anyone caught selling their wares or skills will be asked to leave the event immediately. This also means that there is no food, beer or overpriced anything for sale, so bring everything you need to survive well for the length of your stay. As stated before, this is not a festival. Miami has a plethora of vending events you are welcome to attend but we are not one of them.
Come Over Prepared...and Be Prepared To Take It Out With You
You must bring everything you need for the length of time you intend to stay. There is nothing for sale except ice, cause it can get hot and we like our drinks cold. Bring your own reusable cups and whatever you want to pour into them. There are no trash cans so hold onto your trash and bring reusable items. This is a Leave No Trace Event, so plan to take everything with you when you leave.
Can I Plug In?
Limited Power is provided throughout the event through generators. Bring your own outdoor extension and power cords to charge your phones and small devices. There are no RV hookups for power, water or poop of any kind so don’t ask.
Want to Bring Art, Mutant Vehicle or a Theme Camp?
Tell us first, before you try to just bring it. Please register asap your Theme Camp, Art Car, Golf Cart, Flame Effect, Toy, and/or fantastic Art Project for approval and/or placement at
Blah Blah Blah… YOU HAVE MORE QUESTIONS?
Really? Meh, it’s okay. We get it. But do you really want to spend an hour reading this overly long ticket page? We didn’t think so. There is an FAQ on the website. Read that to learn more about volunteering, camping, glamping, bringing children, parking, car camping rules, theme camp registration, mutant vehicles, art submissions, sound rules, volunteering, yea, we said it twice, and much more.
