GAME offers the chance to win tickets to Download Festival


GAME is offering its music-loving customers the chance to win tickets to the UKís premier rock festival, Download. The festival takes place in Donington Park between 12-14th June and GAME has three sets of exclusive VIP all-weekend camping tickets up for grabs.

The three lucky Download Festival winners will get to see some of the biggest rock and metal bands performing live, including Slipknot, Korn, Def Leppard, Whitesnake, Marilyn Manson and Faith No More. Those attending the festival can also experience what it feels like to be a real rock star with the opportunity to play Guitar Hero Metallica on stage in front of a crowd of up to a thousand people. Other events planned for the Download Festival include laser quest, drumming workshops, human table-football and much more.

With camping tickets for Download Festival 2009 now officially sold out and all other tickets selling out fast, the three pairs of tickets offered by GAME could be one of the last opportunities rock fans have to attend the festival.

To be in with a chance of winning a full weekend at this summerís Download Festival, all music fans have to do is go to the GAME website and answer one simple Slipknot-related question. The competition ends on 29th May 2009 and full details of the festival can be found on the official Download Festival website.

According to the IFPI, the download music industry was worth an estimated 3.7 billion US dollars in 2008, accounting for around 20% of all recorded music sales. With game downloads also increasing in popularity, GAME is more committed than ever to growing its online digital strategy and now stocks a range of iPods, including the iPod Touch. Part games console, part PDA and part web browser, the iPod Touch is a must for tech lovers who want to get much more out of a music player than just great sounds.
