Meredith Music Festival is one of the best music festivals in Australia. It's a known scientific fact of science. But not everyone gets lucky when it comes to winning the ballot.
Although the tickets are usually distributed pretty equally, we've had to developed some tricks to win the ballot's favour. Be they karmic, technological or simply ways of bypassing the ballot all together, here are our sneaky ways to get that golden ticket and let the wild rumpus start!
1. Help old ladies to cross the street. Karma is a fucking goldmine.
2. Stare at the Meredith website until you and the ballot become one being.
3. Put on a red kimono, take some drugs and claim to be one of Grimes' back up dancers.
4. Spend a solid year living in the Meredith township, connect with locals and then run for mayor. By the time you've been elected you won't need to enter the ballot. Meredith is mine bitches!
5. Perfect the mystical art of ESP, and plant the idea in the organiser's brain that you're a VIP who doesn't need a ticket, let alone to enter the ballot... and then get married.
6. Plan a Matrix-style computer hacking ring that will eventually allow you to break the internet and be all "You guys! I got my ticket ages ago! I can't help that the internet broke and I have no proof!". And they'll believe you, because you have an honest face.
7. Learn to fly.
8. Stand outside and do the "ERHMAGAWD" voice, which everyone hates because it is a million years old in internet time, until you annoy the security guards so much that they let you in/ suicide.
9. Dress yourself up as a pink flamingo and try to blend in.
10. Just be patient, you bum!
