Music fan goes to extreme lengths to win festival passes

Cape Town - Die-hard music fan Khylie Robus from Cape Town has taken her commitment to the next level by emblazoning her left arm with the logo of the Electric Vines Music Festival.

Nothing says devotion and dedication like getting your experience of a lifetime tattooed on your body right?

Well, Khylie certainly thinks so, and the team at Electric Vines believes she is very deserving of her free ticket to the music festival of the year.  

Taking place at Arabella Wine Estate in the beautiful Robertson Valley in the Western Cape, this two day party, starting on 30 December 2014, provides the ultimate local and international line-up to celebrate 2014 and bring in the New Year amongst the vines. Click here for all the festival info.

Khylie says the reason for the tattoo was that after seeing the Electric Vines Facebook competition, which was to share the festival with as many friends as possible, she believed there was no better way to show her dedication to winning the tickets than by permanently inking the festival on her arm!  

Khylie is a big fan of inking, and at 25 years old, she already has many different designs all over her body. "Mostly memories," she comments, and her first experience with this form of personal expression was at the tender age of 12 years.

Check out her tattoo below:
