This competition is now over. The winner was Jessica McKeon (@bewkhewker) from Dublin. Congrats Jessica!

ELECTRIC PICNIC IS fast approaching, but is completely sold out for your average punter. Lucky for you, we have a pair of weekend tickets up for grabs.

We’ve teamed up with Heineken Live Your Music, who are bringing a new crowd responsive stage to the festival, to offer one DailyEdge reader and a friend passes to the much anticipated festival.

Heineken’s global music concept Live Your Music takes inspiration from the greatest club and arena  experiences around the world, and the fully-responsive space will host Electric Picnic’s first-ever 360 degree lighting rig, along with CO2 cannons, over 20 DJs and MCs – all powered by the crowd.

The custom-built Heineken Starometer will gauge the crowd’s energy by tracking noise levels, body movement and heat, creating state-of-the-art visuals in real time.

The line-up includes Belgian DJ and producer The Magician (I Follow Rivers, anyone?), hip-hip av maestro DJ Yoda, and British DJ duo Tough Love.

Aside from the live acts performing throughout the weekend, music fans can unlock more experiences in the Live Your Music Rooms; three exclusive areas The Club, The Music Box, and In Scope also add to the experience, with the latter creating gifs of the crowd to project on to giant LED screens on stage.

OK, sounds good, what do I do?
