Win tickets to the Big Day Out!

Contributed

SUMMER equals music festivals, seasonal parties, and a general depletion in clothing cover.

If you wish for all three at once, you may be thinking it would be nice to attend the 2013 Big Day Out on the Gold Coast in January.

You'd get to rock out to tunes from headliners like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Killers, down some cold beverages and dance your cares away.

And you could do it all with your best friend too, if you enter The Northern Star's BFF at BDO competition.

All you have to do is go to our Facebook page and upload a photo of you and your best friend and tell us in 25 words or less why you couldn't live without them and you could win a double pass.

Perfect for those who have so far missed out on tickets and can't bear the thought of missing out on this huge annual summer-lovin' fest!

For your chance to see artists like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Vampire Weekend, Band of Horses, The Bloody Beetroots, Kaskade, Animal Collective, B.O.B, Sleigh Bells, Foals, 360, Crystal Castles, House vs Hurricane and more, get online and enter.

Go on, take a chance, you never know what might happen!
