Following the groundbreaking Twitter Easter Egg Hunt, leading budget accommodation provider HostelBookers.com is launching a new competition on YouTube to give away London festival tickets.
Top prize is two tickets to Get Loaded in the Park 2009 and a two night stay for two people at Clink Hostel. One runner-up will also receive a festival ticket, and three more lucky winners will be rewarded with a bottle of champagne at Clapham bar (Gigalum).
The video competition features a version of five famous tracks from the 2008 line-up of Get Loaded in the Park, with music lovers invited to guess which five songs and bands have been remixed.
David Smith, Chief Operating Officer at HostelBookers.com, said: “We’re constantly looking for new ways to connect and engage with our target market and we hope that this latest innovative use of YouTube will follow on from the huge success of our Twitter campaign in April.
“We’ve been working closely with social media for over a year now and we respect how important these networks are amongst our young, tech-savvy customers. It’s exciting to be involved in another novel campaign so quickly and we hope that the fun, dynamic spirit of the YouTube competition will appeal to music lovers all around the world!”
