To celebrate the launch of the new app, O2 is giving dance music fans the chance to win a trip of a lifetime to Pete Tong’s summer season closing party at the world famous Pacha nightclub in Ibiza.

This money can’t buy prize will see 45 winners with a guest each whisked away in ‘jet-set’ fashion to clubbing mecca Ibiza on their own private plane. On arrival to the Balearic party capital, guests will head to legendary super-club Pacha, where they will dance the night away in a VIP area at Pete Tong’s closing party. After the gig, the 24-hour party people will jet back to the UK, completing their whirlwind VIP experience.

The exclusive competition runs from 1st August until 4th September 2011. There are two ways to win a ticket to the once in a lifetime event:

  • 40 pairs of tickets will be made available exclusively via the b@TV app on one of Nokia’s new phones ‘ E7, N8, C7 or C6-01. Draw takes place on 8th September
  • 5 pairs of tickets will be offered through a weekly ‘Name that Tune’ competition from 1st August until 4th September on O2’s Facebook fan page www.facebook.com/o2uk so even without a Nokia handset, fans are still in with a chance of winning

The lucky winners will then jet out to the Balearic party capital on 23rd September returning on 24th.

Pete Tong’s return to Pacha this summer for his ‘All Gone Pete Tong’ series has quickly become one of the biggest stories of Ibiza 2011 – and he’s not going alone. His guests will include Seal, Aloe Blacc, 2ManyDjs, Gui Boratto, Calvin Harris, Felix Da Housecat, Paul Oakenfold, and many more.

DJ Pete Tong, said: ‘b@TV is the future for dance music fans. As well as the crowd directly in front of the stage, DJ’s are now able to play to millions joining in online all over the world via this new app. Music fans are now able to soak up the atmosphere with all the interaction between the DJ and crowd on the day.’
