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]

    A killer is loose at a folk-music Festival and help is unreachable. There is full mobile coverage, but no-one knows how to hold their iPhones.

    Pumped as, we arrive at Splendour only to find that the entire line up have been replaced by Eurovision contestants and there's no escape!

    Accidentally walking on to the main stage at Splendor and getting the huge roar as people thought i was famous.

    Can't make use of the prize, so don't send it to me, just putting in my 20c.

    Julia Gillard hits the stage at BDO to get in touch with "the youth of Australia."
    Resulting stampede for the exits leaves you among the incapacitated as she starts to sing a selection of celine dion and barbra streisand songs with the aid of a kareoke machine, all bands and support staff, forewarned, have already fled the area.

    The DJ set finished and MC Hammer entered the stage. It was awesome, the crowd went spastic, yet in retrospect it was horrific.

    Falls Festival 09/10 - Hot days and then a massive downpour. It was a soggy night of sleep, nearly washed away, absolute chaos in Lorne!

    Flying Tassie to Byron Bay, realising I left tickets at home. “OMFG!....... Its ok I’ll buy a scalped tickets” $1000 later. “Yeah thanks for coming!”

    splendour, two thousand five
    we unfurl the pinata
    it snaps a tent pole.

    let's try baseball bat!
    it connects... with someone's eye
    it still hasn't healed

    The Vines coil around a Band of Horses, Pixies laughing at Bluejuice and a Little Red spilling onto the floor.

    I haven't taken anything. Swear.

    I'm in my tent shivering. My right eye hurts. It's getting bigger... It reaches the size of my fist and then.... POP! Don't do drugs.

    As Michael sat down on the bus for Splendour he felt something warm and runny ... to be continued ...

    ack.. i am not sorry if this worked or not.. is kotaku having issues with google chrome for mac?? anyway.. apologies if it is a repost.

    i like the haiku idea.. a good way of adding interest in a short 25 word limit..! this is a story about a big night at splendour maybe five years ago and waking up next to a very unattractive girl and doing a runner. thankfully my current girlfriend forgives me for my drunken indiscretion :P

    sunrise at splendour
    mind swims, from a party bender
    morning leads to fear

    girl sleeps next to me
    and looks a catostrophe
    run fast, run away

    I arrived at the festival campsite at midnight. Gale force winds, no reception, alone and exhausted. There before me, a sea of tents. Great.

    Standing there, I heard from one tent: "We're gonna miss Wolfmother!"

    "Oh crap! And Pez!" said the other.

    "Chill out." I said. "You're too tense."

    Got to BDO at 10, went home at 3 with heat stroke. Was too pissed to realise that drinking more booze won't rehydrate me.

    I saw Bloodhound Gang at the 09 Soundwave Festival. The bassist vomitted in his beer jug, redrank it, then into the lead singers hat and put it on his head. which story won?? :)

      not me :(
      would the winner care to trade the tickets for a whole bunch of games? Wii, 360, ps3 and DS? I'm desperate for a ticket...

    At least 18 people have been killed in a mass stampede at the Love Parade dance party in the German city of Duisburg.
