Message in a Bottle

Merridale’s festival giveaway is back!

Find a Message in a Bottle and WIN weekend passes to Phillips Backyard Weekender, Otalith Music Festival and Rifflandia! During the month of May, we’re hiding messages in bottles throughout Victoria. Find a bottle, win weekend passes - it’s that simple.

We're hiding one bottle every Friday starting May 5th. Each bottle will be hidden somewhere south of the Malahat. Tune into The Zone and our social media channels every Friday for the first clue to the bottle's location. A new clue will be posted to Instagram every day until the bottle is found! Find the bottle, return it to Merridale, and win that week's festival passes! The prizes are:

Friday, May 5th: two tickets to Phillips Backyard Weekender

Friday, May 12th: two tickets and camping passes to Otalith Music Festival

Friday, May 19th: two Rifflandia Super Passes

Stay tuned to The Zone and our social media channels for clues to the bottles' locations. Clues will be released on Instagram @merridalecider, Twitter @merridalecider, and Facebook

We're excited to partner with The Zone, Atomique, Otalith, Do250, MEC, and Tourism Victoria on this contest.
