Sure, meeting your favorite DJ is exciting, but what if you rode a helicopter with Kaskade, raced cars with Afrojack, or actually got in the studio with NGHTMRE and SLANDER? That's impossible, right? Wrong, because Surreal is offering all that and more to you and a friend at this year's EDC Vegas. Surreal will even get you to the three-day festival, and your entry fee to win is for a good cause.

Surreal is a fundraising platform that connects festivals to charitable organizations and artists with fans, curating once-in-a-lifetime experiences and helping make the world around us a better place. Last year, Surreal teamed with EDC Vegas for the first time to raise more than $37,000 for the Boys and Girls club of Southern Nevada. 

This year, Surreal and EDC offer nine prize packages themed around seven EDC stages, Insomniac Records, and Insomniac founder Pasquale Rotella. Each comes with its own big bonuses, but all include 2 VIP weekend passes to EDC, round-trip airfare, and Desert Rose Premium camping.

Win circuitGROUNDS to meet Armin van Buuren, get featured on R3HAB's Instagram, play virtual reality games with Excision and more. Win cosmicMEADOW, and San Holo will give you a guitar lesson, A-Trak will teach you how to DJ, and Illenium will sign your merch jersey. Win kineticFIELD and meet Marshmello, Slushii, Zedd, Tiesto, the aforementioned Kaskade, Afrojack, NGHTMRE and SLANDER and more.

Donate $5 for one ticket to win, $20 for five tickets, and $50 for 25. Proceeds will benefit Insomniac's charity of choice, The Las Vegas Academy of the Arts, an award-winning magnet high school that focuses on dance, music, theater and visual arts. You must be 18 or older to enter on or before 11:59 pm PT, Tuesday, May 8. 

If you don't win this go-round, don't get distraught. Surreal has plans to team with Bonnaroo, Shaky Beats and Firefly this summer. Fans can enter this and future charitable contests via Surreal's website. Check out the after movie of last year's EDC winner experiences below.
