Foursquare tonight revealed the details of their top secret SXSW concert and it should be a big night. Foursquare fan Big Boi will be treating foursquare users to a concert at the Seaholm Power Plant starting at 8pm on Monday night.
The trick to getting into the concert is the best part, though. You’ll have to unlock the elusive Golden Ticket badge by following Big Boi and checking in around Austin. Any checkin around town could unlock the badge, which can be exchanged for two tickets to the show.
It’s foursquare first badge that is randomly unlocked, which should add some excitement to earning it (much like the namesake Golden Ticket that Charlie found in Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory).
In addition to Big Boi, there will also be performances by The Sounds and Locksley. The RVIP Lounge karaoke RV â€” which foursquare is sponsoring this year â€” will also be making an appearance during the event. Foursquare co-founders Dennis Crowley and Naveen Selvadurai are expected to represent the East Coast Startups team at the grand finale.
Hopefully foursquare will be awarding many more Golden Ticket badges that they have tickets or they’ll require checkins to be GPS verified. Otherwise I can think of roughly 7,000 people who’ll be checking in “around Austin” and taking most of the badges but won’t be able to attend the concert.
