Transformus 2015 Announcement


We are thrilled to announce that the contract with Deerfields has been signed and Transformus will once again be home on the mountain! As always Transformus will take place during the 3rd weekend of July, however this year we are adding an EXTRA DAY to the front of the event to allow for more mountaintop fun, to help smooth out entry traffic, and give you more time at home. Both theme camp and public entry will happen one day earlier than last year.  Hooray!


Here’s the breakdown:


Tuesday July 14th: Limited theme camp only set up. Requires pre-registration.

Gate open 9am to 9pm

Wednesday July 15th: Open theme camp only entry, now one day earlier!. Requires pre-registration.

Gate open 9am to 9pm

Thursday July 16th: General public entry, now one day earlier!

Gate open 9am to Midnight***

Friday July 17th: General public entry

Gate open 9am to Midnight***

Saturday July 18th: General public entry

Sunday July 19th: Exodus begins. Pack down your camp before getting your car

Gate open 9am to 9pm

Monday July 20th: Exodus continues, everyone out by 1pm

Gate open 9am


***Please note that the gate will not be open overnight on Thursday or Friday night***


***Keep an eye out for the new In and Out guide and Survival guide for 2015 which will be published in the coming months.

Ticket Sales

Our ticket cap this year will once again be 2500 Mysterians.

Due to the volume of people on site, please carpool and pack well to reduce the number of vehicles on site and in the parking lot. Carpooling reduces impact to the parking lot, which helps keep cars from getting stuck, and reduces degradation of Myseria’s roads helping smooth out exodus.


This year we will once again be using Brown Paper Tickets as our ticket vendor. Additionally we will be using them this year for ice. Information on how this works is further below.


Tickets and ice can be purchased at http://Transformus2015.brownpapertickets.com


Round 1: April 12th 2015 @ 4pm Eastern. 1250 tickets will be available


Round 2: May 12th 2015 @ 9pm Eastern. Remaining tickets


Price: $108 plus service fee and taxes. Total price will be about $120.


A max of 2 tickets per purchase will be available. More detailed information on ticket sales and process will be available soon.


Due to the extra day for the event ticket price has increased slightly. This increase includes a land use fee increase, allows funds to pay for extra porta johns, additional wear and tear on the land, extra days of security, EMS, radio, golf carts, generator rentals, fuel costs, and so on.  Even more awesomely, we’ve also increased the Art Grant budgets significantly over last year!


We’re so excited to see you all on the mountain!  

Ice Pre-Sale by Donation

After the soggy, frostbitten, beautiful success of ice sales in 2014, Freeze Your Burn! is back for Transformus 2015! That’s right, in addition to keeping 2014 nice and cool, FYB! helped the Mysterian community donate more than $2500 to a local Mills River school for use in their arts program. This year, we’re doing it all again, but better!


Similar to last year, this year ice will be available through donation prior to the event only. Purchases can be made online through Brown Paper Tickets via the same link you purchase your ticket for the event, but they do not have to be purchased at the same time.


Some important knowledge for your brain:

  • Ice sales will begin shortly after round one of tickets go on sale and will be open until May 31st at 11:59pm EST. The ability to simply donate to charity without the purchase of any ice will be available until the burn starts. The link to follow is: http://transformus2015.brownpapertickets.com

  • You do not have to purchase your ice at the same time you buy your Transformus ticket.

  • No money will be accepted at Transformus, so leave that stuff at home.

  • Each 10 pound bag of ice will be a $4 donation, and our tiered system allows you to buy from 1-15 bags with a single transaction. If you or your camp needs more, simply just do it again!

  • Unlike last year, you won’t need to bring your ID to pick up your ice! Just make sure to know the name and e-mail address of the person who made the donation.

  • Ice pickup will be held at a central location near the upper lake/burn field on Saturday, July 18th from 10am to 2pm.

  • Any ice left over at 2pm will be dispersed among the Mysterian community at large in whatever capacity the FYB! team deems fit/most entertaining.


Stay chill, hippies! And FYB!
