Why is Burning Man so expensive?

I'm not saying people don't enjoy themselves but someone is making a HUGE profit... I estimate the 2010 take will be around 10-12 million on ticket sales alone. Now consider all the sets are largely created by participants and there are volunteers I'll bet these guys are raking in around 7-9 million in... show more I'm not saying people don't enjoy themselves but someone is making a HUGE profit...
