Win A VIP Trip Downunder

16 01 2009





“When you said there was some great Rock in Australia, I thought you meant music.”


A friend of mine once checked-in for a flight behind Marilyn Manson. He leaned forward straining to hear if the shock-rocker ordered a bowl of black M&Ms with his seat. Much to his dismay however, he reports that Manson was extremely polite and apart from the multiple tattoos, chains, jewellery, black liptick, black eyeliner, white make-up, and long black leather trench coat and fingerless gloves, was just like any other passenger….if you ignored the long dagger.


Although Jason didn’t get to hang out with Manson, he did enjoy his airport encounter. However, there is a way to hang out with some of your favourite bands at SoundWave 2009 in Brisbane, Australia next month. 


The SoundWave Festival originated in Perth, Australia and now features a mixture of Australian and international music acts from Metal, Hardcore, Punk rock, Pop punk and Alternative rock. This year’s event boasts 51 bands on 6 stages including Canada’s Bedouin Soundclash, Moneen, Attack in Black and Rival Schools.


Travel CUTS, Tourism Australia and Dine Alone Records are giving one lucky person and a friend the opportunity to win the trip of a lifetime. The winners will be flown to Brisbane for three days and nights of sightseeing, touring, partying and VIP access to SoundWave 2009. From Brisbane it’s on to Cairns for 5 more days of skydiving, bungy jumping, whitewater rafting and a trip to the Great Barrier Reef. The prize includes flights, accommodation and some meals… but you are required to bring your own black M&Ms.
