    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.
