This was pretty typical: Fucked in Park Slope reports an almost identical experience, as do its commenters.
The event's website suffered technical problems thanks to overwhelming demand, the Brooklyn Paper reports today. More slots are expected to open up before the May weekend event, though it's unclear how many. Organizers have been in damage-control, reaching out apologetically to local media and offering tickets to locals irate enough to contact the promoters directly.
But the point, obviously, is that Ben fucked up. Thanks a lot, Ben.
