RENO, Nev. (AP) — Tickets during the main sale for this year’s Burning Man festival have sold out, with 30,000 tickets gone in about a half-hour.

People rushing to get the $425 tickets Wednesday started seeing unavailable notices for both tickets and vehicle passes before 1:00 p.m.

The annual countercultural festival is attended by thousands in northern Nevada’s Black Rock Desert.

This year’s event is scheduled from Aug. 27 through Sept. 4.

The San Francisco-based organizers of Burning Man say another 500 tickets for $1,200 each will be made available on April 5. A program offering tickets to people with low incomes will start April 17 and a final sale will take place Aug. 2.
