The summer festival season has already begun here in the U.K. and in true British fashion, rain or shine people flock to these events and have enjoy the weekend partying and listening to live music. To celebrate the summer festivals, The Guardian is giving away a pair of tickets to Bestival as well as a BlackBerry Curve 9320. So, you'll be able to enjoy the four day live music event on the Isle of Wight and capture and share everything from your brand new BlackBerry smartphone.
Bestival is the last festival of the year and includes a huge list of artists lined up to perform, including the legend that is Stevie Wonder. Other acts include Florence + the Machine, New Order, Friendly Fire and many more. Bestival runs from 6th - 9th September 2012 and the winning tickets will include camping access.
As already mentioned the BlackBerry smartphone on offer is the Curve 9320, the newest BlackBerry 7 device to launch. The entry level device comes preinstalled with BlackBerry OS 7.1 and comes with a built-in FM Radio. For an entry level device it is pretty kick ass. I've had a chance to use it the past week and while it's no Bold 9900 it is still a BlackBerry and the dedicated BBM hotkey is a very nice addition, making BBM conversations even faster to access.
The Guardian competition is open to UK residents only and you must be 18 or over.
