Winning The EDM Fan Lottery
Scoring tickets to the biggest music festivals for free
Some people may have completely lost their faith in Lady Luck, but many still believe in her. According to the PBS, over 60% of Americans have been involved in some form of gambling or another, hoping to cash in on their luck and win big.
Every so often, people win and make huge money out of gambling. We have the professional poker players, people like Rainman, and those lucky lottery winners. It sometimes seems like Lady Luck plays favorites too, with people such as Richard Lustig, who has won the Florida lottery grand prize seven times. He says it has nothing to do with luck, though, and has since published a book as a sort of strategy guide. lottery.net also reports that November last year, one of its patrons won by betting six times on the same combination of numbers and was just one number off in one of its Powerball draw. Since it was one number shy, the payout was 1 million for each ticket.
Gambling has taken all sorts of forms. You could go down to Vegas to play at some tables, bet on everything from horse races to who’ll win the next NBA season. Gambling has become so integrated with technology that you could make your fortune online, and apps to make betting more convenient have even been developed. Before you go trying out Richard Lustig’s technique on any of those though, there’s an even better, low-risk type of gambling that could potentially bring you to the climax of your musical experiences: free tickets to a music festival.
According to MusicFestivalJunkies, there are six music festivals taking place all over the world in October alone. One of these is the Treasure Island Music Festival, a two-day event that takes place in the San Francisco Bay. This year’s lineup is composed of names like the Atoms for Peace, Animal Collective, and Beck. The festival is also one of the first music festivals to go green, focusing on reducing carbon emissions and on the use of composting. The event is split into two parts: Saturday is dedicated to dance, and Sunday is reserved to rock, so even if your friends aren’t as into EDM as you are, you’re all bound to have a good time.
While that’s all pretty impressive, we haven’t even gotten to the best part: free tickets to the Treasure Island Music Festival are available through various websites online. Sites like Tixie and FunCheap are holding raffles for free VIP tickets right now, all for the price of a subscription. The Treasure Island Music Festival’s Twitter account is constantly tweeting promos and tickets up for grabs, aside from updates on their artists and newly released singles.
