National V Festival Giveaway

The V Festival is back! And it’s bursting at the seams with international and local acts you’d be tearing your hair out to see this coming March-April. Fortunately that won’t be necessary, as Oyster are giving away a double pass to each V Fest across the nation!

The V Festival line-up this year includes weighty headliners: The Killers, Snow Patrol, The Kaiser Chiefs and Elbow, along with the saucy Duffy, The Do, Louis XIV and local storm troopers: The Temper Trap, Tame Impala & Canyons.

As per usual there’ll also be loads of Virgin paraphernalia flying around fields like inflatable armchairs, phones and top-up stations - a constant reminder of who’s bringing you this wealth of musical talent – and don’t you forget it!

See dates for your state below, and for more information head to the V Festival website:

Saturday March 28 Sydney, Centennial Park
Sunday March 29 Gold coast, Avica Resort
Saturday April 4 Melbourne, Showgrounds
Sunday April 5 Perth, Claremont Showgrounds

To enter, simply send us an email to with your state and V Festival in the subject (eg. V Festival, WA) and tell us who you’re dying to see this year and why.
