Hardship Tickets

We Can Help

Is the cost of an event ticket keeping you from attending PDF? Don't bum out. Hardship tickets are available at a reduced cost because PDF believes in decommodification, inclusion, and that helping each other out is just the right thing to do. The personal info of hardship ticket applicants is kept confidential and shared with the smallest number of people possible.

The information below applies to the last cycle of hardship applications but gives you an idea of how the process works. Before the next burn check this page for updated info. Hardship Applications are announced in the Burning Pony Express, too.
