Once upon a time I signed up for Twitter so I could crash the Edinburgh Twestival 2009… and tomorrow 24th March the Edinburgh Twestival is on again! The fun starts 7pm-1am at Hawke & Hunter (near the Omni). It’s a wonderful Twitter + festival party with all sorts of entertainment and cool folks, and many thanks to Geoff Kennedy (@idle_bull) for offering the inside scoop in all his excitement [Tickets here til they sell out!]:
It’s 1.13am Wednesday the 23rd March 2011 and realisation that ‘that Twestival thing‘ I got involved in is iminent!
Well we’ve certainly been ambitious with EdTwestival this year! We’re looking to build on the success of previous Edinburgh Twestivals with even more people there on the night, and if all goes to plan; more cash raised!
As ever the mix is pretty electic. We have bands, cupcakes, a mind reader, drinks (of course), prizes galore (a hell of a lot of prizes), a DJ, a Foursquare Superswarm attempt (very geeky), boardgaming, a photobooth, goodiebags, silent auction, even an opera singer! This doesn’t even cover half of it!
The twitter noise is certainly ramping up now too, @EdTwestival is seeing a whole load of attention and excited twitter-type-people!
The team have all been hard at it. Sponsorship and prizes have been flying in left right and centre. The tech is all coming together. Things are looking good! Personnally I’m having trouble keeping track of everything going on, all I know is that I have a carload of stuff I’d quite like to keep! Unfortunatly though, I can’t, this lot and more will all be up for grabs on the night.
Ok, enough of my babbling nonsense. There is only one issue remaining: Have you bought your ticket? I’m done with the soft-sell, just buy it! NOW! It’s only £10 (£8 if you’re one of those people that gets to sleep till midday), it all goes to charity, and you get a load of stuff in return. What’s the problem?
I hope to see you all there if you can make it!
