Xbox announces MyGig competition

Microsoft today announced the opportunity for one music lover to help create the gig of their dreams for real with its MyGig promotion.

All budding promoters have to do is create a flyposter to promote their ultimate gig using the online poster creator. They’ll then promote their gig idea to their mates, and iif it rates higher than anyone else’s they’ll have the opportunity to help Xbox to promote a gig for real with a massive £50,000 budget.

"After an incredibly successful summer of music-led activity, we felt it was right to put the crowning event in the hands of a music fan to help us develop the gig of their dreams," commented Alex Weller, brand experience manager, Xbox 360.

"The synergy between music and gaming has never been closer, and with all of the best music entertainment experiences available on Xbox 360, we want to leave it to the fans to decide how the most exciting event of the year should roll out".

Xbox will also be at a number of festivals over the rest of the summer, including Virgin's V Festival (16th-17th August), Get Loaded In The Park (24th August) and the finale of the summer festival season, Bestival (5th-7th September) on board the Xbox MyGig Tour Bus – a bua that boasts a full stage and DJ booth, with sofas and demo stations inside for consumers to have a play on the 360.
