All you have to do is get the festival’s logo permanently inked on any part of your body. Advertising gone too far? 


Attending a music festival is not always a cheap expense you can afford. We all know everyone tries their best to pull some strings, make temporary alliances with organizers, participate in contests – to hustle their way into a festival. Every festival has a unique way of shelling out their giveaways, and an Atlanta festival is aiming to create a ‘lasting impression’ with their latest giveaway technique.
