Wide Open Space Festival is the annual Australian festival event that brings the party to where it’s needed most. Kicking off this April, Wide Open Space will return once again to Ross River Resort in the Northern Territory.

If partying in the desert with the likes of Om Unit and Saskwatch sounds like your idea of a good time but you don’t know how you’re going to get to the NT, organisers have an incredible opportunity for one lucky person.

The #wishyouWOShere competition is offering a free trip to Alice Springs for WOSfest along with lots of other perks and all you have to do is upload a photo to Instagram, Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #wishyouWOShere.

This immediately puts you in the running to win the ultimate Wie Open Space prize pack. Organisers are looking for photos that encompass what WOS is about – “creativity, uniqueness, adventure, celebration, freedom and fun!”

The competition is open to interstate music lovers from across Australia, so don’t worry if you’re not based in NT. If you win, you’ll get:


1x Festival Pass to Wide Open Space Festival (April 29-May 1)
1x Flight from your nearest capital city to Alice Springs
A killer WOS merch pack so you can style it up at the festival!
Transport to the WOS festival site (80km out of Alice Springs)

Oh, and we almost forgot the best part. You’ll be the official blogger of WOS and get to share your experience, snap pictures, and go down in history as “the ultimate legend of WOS 2016”.

Entries are now open and close 25th March. The winner is set to be announced 1st April. For more info and terms and conditions, head on over to the official Wide Open Space festival website or head here for some inspiration from 2015 entries.
