Splendour In The Grass’ Creative Carpool Comp

In a bid to ease traffic congestion, curb carbon emissions and ruin friendships by forcing people to endure hours of their mates’ questionable body odor and/or music taste, Splendour in the Grass have this week launched a creative carpool competition called “My Car’s A Unicorn, What’s Yours?”.

Basically, before heading to Splendour this year you need to transform your car into a mobile work of art – such as the pet grooming van Harry drives in Dumb and Dumber. In keeping with Splendour’s green theme, you’ve got to rock up with the car in full costume and have at least three people riding in order to win the prize: coveted event-camping tickets to next year’s Splendour in the Grass 2012 – where the lineup will presumably be better than ever and the tickets will be even more pricey. Lock in your carpooling pals as soon as possible.

The cars will be judged in two categories; Splendour’s Choice and People’s Choice. Thinking outside the box is highly recommended.

For all the information head to http://splendourinthegrass.com/# and don’t forget tickets go on sale next Thursday, 5 May.
