Need to kick J1 FOMO to the curb? We’re here to help.

Vodafone X’s #FOMOBusters want to give you a festival experience and a brand new phone for free.

Are you sick of spending your summer scrolling through all your pals’ Instas chock full of J1 lols, wishing you were there?  Or maybe you’ve missed every festival because you’ve been sweating out in that part-time job instead of shaking it out in a field? Well, we’ve teamed up with Vodafone’s #FOMOBusters to banish that fear for good.

We’d all rather be off having the time of our lives abroad for the summer and we know that the FOMO can be killer. We’ve all been there. And even when you stay at home, getting the time and funds together for a festival weekend can be a serious drain.

Sometimes you just need a helping hand to kickstart your good times and that’s where we step in.

We’re teaming up with Vodafone X to help you beat those midsummer blues with some amazing offers, like a brand new festival phone for free, in four Vodafone stores around Ireland this month. And not just that, we’ll also be giving away prizes like Ticketmaster vouchers and festival survival packs to make sure your next festival is an absolute breeze with a mini-festival right there in the store.

All you have to do is come on down and visit us in the following cities this month:

  • Dublin – Grafton Street – 24th July (12pm – 3pm)
  • Cork – Oliver Plunkett Street – 25th July (12pm – 3pm)
  • Limerick – O’Connell Street – 26th July (12pm – 3pm)
  • Waterford – 5 Blackfriars – 29th July (12pm – 3pm)

Vodafone X is a special phone plan for 18–24-year-olds, and when you switch to the network, you get a whopping 20GB of 4G data, loads of great extras to choose from like free Sky Sports or Unlimited weekends, as well as affordable deals on phones. What’s more, you also get one hundred any network minutes and unlimited texts.

As part of our in-store festivities, you’ll be given the chance to spin our wheel of wonder for a chance to win prizes*, meet makeup artist and YouTuber Keilidh Cashell who’ll be on hand from 1pm to 2pm to help you spin and win, and you can sign up to Vodafone X on the day and receive a free Nokia 1 (worth €100) to make festival phone problems a thing of the past.
