Contest: Win Tickets and Back Stage Access to the Virgin Music Festival


We're all about virgins here on blogTO. And the total number has risen to 60!

Acts. 60 acts, that is, will be descending upon Toronto over September 8 and 9. And with the 47 acts suffocating the three stages that were already in place, a fourth stage has been added to the mix to force NXNE-like decisions to your day. New faces include Dragonette, k-os, The Postage Stamps, Liam and Me and The Most Serene Republic.

Don't have a ticket yet? Don't worry. We have two sets of two-day double passes to give away courtesy of Virgin Mobile. And one winner will also get two passes to hang out with the Tokyo Police Club. For a chance to win, join our Facebook Group because we'll be messaging all members next Tuesday with details how to win.

Ok. Now about the line-up. Decisions will need to be made; do you hit one of the mains to catch a sure-fire great show from Emily "I Wear a Fucking Skirt" Haines' Metric, or do you take a chance and check out the 10-20 singers of Bang Camaro cramming the stage? You won't have to worry about Amy Winehouse, as she's cancelled all her shows in September.

The updated Virgin Music Festival lineup lies, waiting for you, naked, rose petals scattered around and with strawberries and whip cream in tow after the jump.

The Rolling Stones may not be playing, but the new faces tagging along with the likes of Smashing Pumpkins, Bjork, Interpol and The Killers do a great job of rounding out an already diverse two-day festival.
