All participants (and parents of participants under 18) will be asked to sign a waiver and release of liability at the gate - go to the Resources tab to read the waiver.

Kids 12 and under are free! Families are welcome and encouraged to teach our younger generation the 10 principles of Burning Man. Children will need a free ticket, valid with a corresponding Adult ticket.

Participants ages 13 to 17 can buy a Teen Ticket for a discounted price of $25.00 Child and Teen tickets are only valid with a corresponding Adult ticket, and that Adult must be your PARENT or Legal Guardian.

PRESALES ONLY!!!!! No tickets will be sold at the gate. NONE. Participants without proper ID and ticket will be turned away. There are absolutely no exceptions to this.

With the purchase of your ticket, you voluntarily assume the risk of property loss or damage, personal or bodily injury, serious injury or death by attending Idaho Decompression and forever release, discharge and shall hold Idaho Burners Alliance, Inc. and its affiliates harmless from any claims arising from any such risk, even if caused by the negligent act, error or omission of Idaho Burners Alliance, Inc. or its officers, directors, employees, contractors, agent, volunteers or representatives.

Idaho Burners Alliance, Inc. does not permit or condone any underage drinking or illegal drug use - Security will confiscate any contraband and offenders may be asked to leave the event. Local authorities will be on site, too, so don't be that guy.

You agree to read and abide by any rules put forth by Idaho Burners Alliance, Inc., the organizers of Idaho Decompression, and to follow all federal, state and local laws.

Leave No Trace, Pack It In – Pack It Out Event - you are expected to keep your campsite clean during the event and pack out ALL - and we mean ALL - of your trash....and some of your neighbors', too, in case they forget.

Tickets are non-refundable even if the event is terminated early or canceled due to harsh weather, acts of nature, governmental regulation, or other conditions beyond Idaho Burners Alliance, Inc. control. The ticket is a revocable license that may be refused by Idaho Burners Alliance, Inc. for any reason.

The purchase and use of a ticket for your admittance to the event confirms your agreement to the terms reflected here.

Idaho Decompression has a zero tolerance policy towards trespassing. You will receive a wristband upon entry and you must wear your wristband at all times. If your wristband comes off you need to present it to security right away (with your valid ID again) to get a new one or you will be asked to pay again. Please challenge anyone NOT wearing their wristband. And keep your ticket stub in case you lose your wristband. It will be pretty hard to keep you at the event if you can't seem to find either and claim you really did have a ticket and wristband. We reserve the right to search vehicles and campsites for trespassers, and to eject and prosecute anyone without a wristband.

Gate will be CLOSED from 9:30pm - 8am
