Enter The Sony Bloggie™ Lollapalooza Sweepstakes For a Chance at VIP Tickets

by Gina 07/05/2011

From August 5th – August 7th, music fans from all over the nation will gather in Chicago for one of the hottest music festivals around. Okay so yes that’s a pun but thousands of  Lollapalooza® Music Festival ticket holders say attending this spectacular music festival is worth fending off the Chicago heat. Headliners along with some of the hottest indie bands will grace the stages.  If you’re a ticket holder, you’re in luck. If you’re not, then we have a chance for you and a pal to score some.

To enter the Sweepstakes, be sure to head to the Sony Electronics Facebook page and there in 200 characters or less, you can tell us why you want to go to Lollapalooza. Official rules can be found on the Sony Electronics Facebook page (no purchase necessary to enter). The Grand Prize Winner will receive a five (5) day/four (4) night trip for the Grand Prize Winner and a guest to Chicago, IL and two (2) VIP passes to the 2011 Lollapalooza® Music Festival. This includes round-trip airfare and hotel, not to mention a Sony Bloggie™  Touch MP4 Camera to record all the festival fun.

And let me tell you, VIP tickets are coveted. In addition to daily access to the shows, VIP access includes unlimited access to Lolla Lounge North and South, access to VIP golf cart shuttles for transport between Lolla Lounge North and South, viewing platforms of the Main Stages with premium sightlines, catered food servings daily along with “beverages”,  mini-spa treatments from The Elysian Spa & Health Club and most importantly, reserved Lolla Lounge air conditioned restrooms.

The Bloggie team will be going to to the show and just happened to have some extra tickets. At the festival, attendees can check out a Bloggie™  MP4 Camera (with a driver’s license) for free, and record their favorite music and festival moments. There will be tents with stations set up to upload your captured video to your favorite websites like Facebook and YouTube. You can check out their Coachella tent at the video below.

    I love Marshall Mathers…he’s the only reason I would ever go anywhere to be at a concert…if that’s the only way I could see him,I’d much rather he entertain me in my home..with his personality,intelligence,and charm….us all alone in a QUIET SETTING would be much more comfortable for me than going out anywhere.I absolutely adore him.

    I thought we entered on the facebook page, but now I’m confused. This is what I wrote on your page:
    “I’m going to be moving to the Chicago area at the end of July and have never been at a big concert/lived near a big city before, but it sounds cool and seems it would be a good way to get to know the area.”
