COMPETITION UPDATE BELOW – MORE PRIZES ADDED
Uh, sorry, sorry, can I please get your attention. I know it’s Friday and you’re busy with things like girls in bikinis or discussing the late gig issues of Cape Town, but I have something to tell you. Something I think you’re going to quite like. I have 4 x tickets to give away for this years Rocking The Daises featuring…and if you didn’t know this leave the room…Bloc Party. Ja, I know, they’ve played out of their boots this year! Details below.
(details after the jump)
Right, I’m not going to make this too easy. We’re talking high value items here. The savings you make on this ticket (R600) effectively means you can double your festival budget slash intake of glorious things. I’ve toyed with a few ideas and entry mechanics, but none of them really seemed to fit. Then I thought about Daisies. It’s all about love. It’s the closest we get to Woodstock and the like, so I think we should trade. Not money, obviously, something else. It doesn’t have to be (shouldn’t be) huge or cost anything, that’s just silly, the point of this is to get you thinking (like a hippie) – what is awesome enough to trade for a ticket to a four day music festival? What would I use, dig, think is funny, etc. I’ll accept family members/friends and livestock, depending on who/what they are.
All you have to do to enter is tweet a picture of what you are willing to trade for a Rocking The Daisies ticket including the hashtag #hippietrade and obviously @bangersandnash. So, in case there’s any confusion, you tweet a pic of the item and include a caption along the lines of this:
Hey @bangersandnash, I’ll trade my (whatever it is) for a @RockingTheDaisy ticket. #Hippietrade
It’s that easy. If you don’t have twitter, it’s about time you joined. If you are really stuck you can always email your entry – but it better be damn good then. email@example.com
Right, give it a think, come up with something rad. Four people will win, so make sure you’re one of them. You have one week to make me want to give you a ticket.
PRIZE UPDATE: The two best trades will also receive a Ray Ban Festival Kit worth over R2 500 – including a pair of shades, a Ray Ban towel, and a Ray Ban T-shirt.
Right gang, the trade proposals I’ve received are getting ridiculous! From completely bizarre, to boring, to blatant bribes. I wasn’t sure if I’d actually accept any of them, but due to the fierce competition I will now be accepting the trades – this should weed out offeres like horses, mothers and child slaves (though all of those would be nice to have).
Again, I don’t want expensive stuff. I want awesome stuff. A great example would be the life-size Chewbacca cut-out I was offered. I won’t lie to you, that dude is looking like a winner. Or the animal onezie I was offered. Or the home-grown herb. It’s obviously still too close to call, but that should give you an idea of what I’m talking about.
So, you have till Sunday afternoon to get your trades in. THEN I’ll announce the winners on Sunday night, and on Monday evening we’ll do the trades at a bar of my choice in town. If the winner does not show up with his trade the ticket moves to the next person.
I’ll be running a comp for 4 x tickets to the Joburg Block Party concert next week for those of you up there.
