One lucky fan will get a trip to Ibiza to hang with the DJ when he opens for Avicii.

One of the many perks of being a successful DJ is the way you get to travel. When you’re opening for Avicii, economy airfare just won’t do. You fly private. If you don’t happen to park a G6 of your own in your garage, this might be your chance to taste the EDM lux life. Progressive house DJ EDX is offering one lucky fan an experience of a lifetime in the form of a trip to Ibiza via his “No Xcuses” private jet to hang out with him when he plays at Avicii’s party at Ushuaia.

EDX, born Maurizio Colella, created the contest as a way to reward fans with an “outside the lines” experience that “reaches beyond the backstage.” Avicii’s manager Ash Pournouri calls the contest a “great and generous opportunity.” And he’s right. By all accounts it’s also unprecedented and not likely to be repeated often.

The winner will need to make a 60-second video about why he or she is EDX’s biggest fan. Hashtag it #NoXcuses and #EDX then upload it here.The prize includes a visit to EDX’s hometown of Zurich, Switzerland to hang with the DJ at a the city’s famed Street Parade. From there, there’s the private jet flight to Ibiza. Plus, there are VIP accommodations throughout the trip, as anyone living the DJ lifestyle would expect.

So bust out your video-enabled cameras and keep your passport at the ready. Those who aren’t lucky enough to be selected can still tune into EDX’s weekly No Xcuses radio show on SiriusXM.
