Our Growing Event

Our committee strives to keep ticket prices for Blazing Swan affordable for participants, and reasonable to fund the essentials of a regional burn.  Some of the essentials from 2017 Elemental include $70,000 for Theme Camp grants & subsidies, $30,00 for Art Grants, and $55,000 on toilet amenities among other expenses. For a detailed breakdown of Blazing Swan’s event expenses, come along to the Annual General Meeting after the end of the financial year.  Blazing Swan members get a vote and a say on important decisions like budgets, so get involved!

The 2018 ticket prices have risen $50 from previous years, after some careful planning and budgeting from our Blazing Swan committee. The decision for a ticket price increase is a matter not taken lightly, balancing increasing costs and allowing for contingencies.  The primary goal of all budgeting is to make sure Blazing Swan remains a sustainable event for generations to come.

Blazer Profiles

Ticket purchases to Blazing Swan will now be connected to your own Blazer Profile through our ticket provider Quicket.  Your Blazer profile keeps some simple information like your name and contact details, and allows Blazing Swan to track who is a returning Blazer, and who is a virgin burner, with a view to help new Blazers to understand some basic elements that make Blazing Swan a bit different than most other events with a view to help new Blazers to understand some basic elements that make Blazing Swan a bit different than most other events.  You will be required to setup your simple Blazer Profile before purchasing your Blazing Swan ticket. Link for Blazer Profiles

Discounted Tickets

Volunteers and Theme Camps are the lifeblood of our Blaze community. We love our volleys and Theme Camps! It is important for all of us to support our volunteers and Theme Camps, who work tirelessly throughout the whole year leading up to the Blaze at Easter. In order to show our appreciation of the hard work these people do for our event, we have given the volunteers from previous years event access to purchase early-release, discounted tickets at $175.

To obtain your own limited-release ticket for 2019, register your interest to volunteer with Blazing Swan in a variety of roles both at the event, and leading up to the event.  Volunteering is a great way to participate in the Blaze! Link here to volunteer.

Joining a Theme Camp is another way of getting involved deep in Blazing Swan.  By joining a Theme Camp’s efforts you get to experience the Blaze as part of a close-knit team. Checkout the list of Theme Camps on our website, or ask our community on Facebook.
