Win 1 of 2 double tickets to the #5GumExperience ft The Kooks


Forget Bieber, Bon Jovi, Metallica and Rihanna folks because The Kooks are heading into town this weekend. The Brits are rolling in to be apart of the 5 Gum Experience. Tickets to this gig have got to be some of the most requested and yet rare things out there. The demand has been outstanding. A lot of you will know if you’ll be going through to the gig at a secret venue in Jozi and in Cape Town, but some of you might not have been successful in your attempts to win tickets. Cue the *sad faces* for many.

Well I’m here to help… I wish I could make all of your Mondays, but as I said these tickets are hard to come by. What I can do is give you the opportunity to win tickets to the gig in Jozi. Sounds easy enough right? Not so much… If you want to win you have to you have to:

– Be a fan of the band

– Someone who is desperate to see them.

– Someone who logged on to get your tickets to the gig as soon as the news was announced.

– Someone who really wants to be at the 5GumExperience.

I’m looking for creative ways to prove that you are one of two people deserving of a double ticket. You can:

– Sing one of their songs

– Record a message, (a video, voice note) and post it here or on YouTube and send me the link.

– Take a photo with your favourite 5 Gum flavours

– Post a FANtastic question to the band using the hashtag #5GumExperience


If you’re up for the challenge drop me a comment in the section below or use the hashtag #5GumExperience in your tweets/ responses to me. I’d love to give you one of two double tickets to the gig and it would be rad to party with you. Continue reading “Win 1 of 2 double tickets to the #5GumExperience ft The Kooks”
