Burning Man is a sellout.

The popular counter-cultural event in the Nevada Desert burned through its 38,000 tickets in 44 minutes this week, according to the Reno Gazette-Journal.

The $380 tickets went on sale on Wednesday with little issue, the newspaper reported. They are being relisted online at places like StubHub for up to $1,545.

If you missed the Burning boat, fear not: Another 1,000 tickets will go onsale on Aug. 6.

A record-breaking 68,000 people went to the playa last year.
