This year, tickets to participate at L’OsstidBurn from October 7 to 11, 2021 will be sold by lottery, in order to establish a more fair and equitable system for distributing tickets. It is a random selection process that provides everyone who signs up during the registration period an equal opportunity to obtain a ticket. 


Registration for the lottery runs from August 18, 2021 at noon until August 28 at 11:59 pm.

Ticket purchase will be in early September. The ticketing team will contact you to announce if you got or not a ticket. 


Good luck!
