WIN! The Loved Ones Have Splendour Tickets For You

We have a splendid pair of tickets (with camping) to Splendour in the Grass to giveaway to a lucky reader for telling us a music festival horror story in just 25 words or less. All thanks to the scary new movie "The Loved Ones"... so, what's your story? ENTRIES CLOSE TONIGHT!

Maybe it's the intro to a larger horror moment, maybe it's a perfect music festival slasher death moment, or maybe you just lost your tickets at the gate. We're looking for the most creative concept for a music festival horror moment told in less than 25 words.

Bust out your entries in the comments and make sure you include a valid email address. We'll be getting in touch right away and need to pass on your phone and DOB details to Splendour on Friday, 16 July. If we can't get hold of you right away, we'll be passing the prize on to another lucky reader!

Here's the trailer for the new Aussie film, "The Loved Ones", which has a freaky 'Wolf Creek meets date movie' vibe:

And here's the story taster:

Brent (Xavier Samuel) never recovered from the car crash that killed his father: the crash that he was responsible for. His only solace is his loving girlfriend Holly (Victoria Thaine). But there's another girl who yearns to comfort Brent, the quietest girl in school, Lola (Robin McLeavy), and when he turns down her invitation to the end of year dance he enters a nightmare beyond imagining.

A terrifying series of events take place under the light of a mirrored disco ball, involving pink satin, glitter, syringes, nails and power drills. Brent must summon every ounce of will he possesses if he is to survive and prevent Lola and her father from extending their revenge to those he loves the most.

Entries close at 11.59pm, Wednesday, 14th July. Winner scores the two GA Event Camping tickets to Splendour in the Grass, valued at $463 each. The prize is tickets only. [T&Cs]


    Don't drink glow sticks. You will throw up instead of watching the Mars Volta

    You rock up to find a sign that says "No Alcohol Will Be Served On These Premises Today". My worst nightmare!

    while taking a crap in the port-a-loo some coked-up ruffian decided he didnt want to wait and kicked the door in on me... bugger

    Vibes 2003, all geared up to see Lee Scratch Perry, he took too many happy pills on the plane and didn't play.

    A punter starts dancing in his boxers at the main stage. One, two more join, forty, eighty!! I knew I should've worn underpants today.

    Someone's idea of a joke: Misprinted timetable. Crowd arrives expecting Flaming Lips. Receives Bindi Irwin and the Jungle Girls (thanks, Wikipedia). Oh, the HOORRRORRRRRs!

      Hi. So did anyone win this?

      Just on the off chance that no one did because no one supplied an email address as per instructions, may I present

      adullard at gmail dot com

        yup, i am watching this thread with bated breath!! i am rather very keen to attend the festival and camping tickets are impossible to get..! hopefully they will have an announcement for us soon!!?

    Watching some poor strung-out sod pick up a burger from the muddy ground, wipe it off, and tuck in.

    In Belgium at Rochwerchter 09 and everyones willingness to clean naked in the camping grounds... all 35+

    Stocking up on alcohol, food, tents, supplies and tickets (which cost a fortune!), Driving from ACT to the ferry for a 3 day camping festival 300kms away than having my girlfriend break her ankle getting on the ferry and having to get an ambulance back to Gosford and missing the whole event... Not to mention she couldn't walk for 3 months... FML

    Cut Copy, BDO 09. Being forced against a sweaty shirtless dude with the worst bacne I have ever seen.

    Buying tickets to Big day out from a scalper only for them to turn out tobe fake and get taken for questioning by security

    Glastonbury 2008. Getting horribly drunk, passing out, missing all the main acts. Oh and the toilets.

    3 days. 30,000 people. 1 infected soul to start it all. Can the power of rock triumph and stop the on-coming zombie horde?!

    I once got peed on at an ACDC concert, as you can imagine the old bearded guy doing it

    Opened an unlocked cubicle at Future Music Festival and was confronted with a guy bending over forwards and wiping his bum. Scared for life

    Glastonury, man goes to portaloo, three guys push over portaloo, door-side down. Man is trapped inside with portaloo contents, for over an hour. The horror!

    "Undercover" security guard kicks my SOBER friend out of Good Vibrations for being "too intoxicated" because she lay on the grass near the Roots stage.

    Blood curdling screams ring out as the lid was lifted from the empty esky.

    Reading Festival:

    Day1 - The water's calm and blue.
    Day2 - Levels rising, stench grows thick.
    Day3 - Reached max load. Eternal bog of stench now centimeters away. No escape!

    We were driving from Perth to Melbourne. Forgot the ipod, and radio broke. Only had a Miley Cyrus cd. And it was a single.

    The last man without Splendour tickets sat in a locked room. He was alone in the dark, afraid. Someone put Splendour tickets in his hands.

    Exactly 25 words :D

    Longer Version:
    The last man without Splendour tickets sat in a locked room. He was all alone in the dark, afraid. Someone put Splendour tickets in his hands. It was his MOTHER IN LAW!

      I don't want to bring you down, but if you read the blurb at the top, it actually specifies 'less than 25 words' :0

        Curses! I'm doomed! :)

    Rollercoaster festival in Mandurah. The quick chicken sandwich i bought left me in the med tent throwing up all afternoon, missing Hilltops who havent returned!

    Four day Festival. Spy small barrel behind bar. Discover scrumpy 4pm first day and start drinking. Empty barrel to myself. 3 days in tent recovering!

    Five mins to midnight - NYE at Pyramid. Idiots further back start throwing beer bottles. Saw the Year in from First Aid tent with bleeding head.

    I was at Soundwave earlier this year and ended up hanging out with these 2 girls whom I thought were pretty cool. We were casually chatting when one suddenly turn to me and said "Paramore's about to start! C'mon!"
