We are super excited to announce that we have teamed up with Cirque du Soleil to invite 50 Klout users and their guests to #EVOKE13, a special SxSW Interactive event at Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theater on March 12. #EVOKE13 features a specially-created act by Cirque du Soleil exclusively for SxSW, showcasing acrobats, dancers and characters from Cirque du Soleil resident shows in Las Vegas and Orlando. It’s bound to be one of the hottest shows in Austin.
Starting today, Klout users with the Klout for iPhone app who are at SxSW Interactive can opt-in to become eligible for the Klout Perk, which offers special seating in the VIP mezzanine area of ACL Live, complimentary drinks and a VIP swag bag.
Also included is panel discussion hosted by colorful Nerdist Industries Founder Chris Hardwick, along with internet personality and Cos Player Meg Turney. The Divine Fits, who released one of 2012′s most critically acclaimed albums, A Thing Called Divine Fits (Merge), will also perform a set. The night will top off with a set from GRAMMY nominated producer, DJ Sam Spiegel.
SxSW attendees can redeem this Perk in three easy steps:
1. Opt-in: you will receive a notification when you download the app, then just hit “OK”
2. Go to SxSW and walk around: you will be automatically entered when we pick up your location
3. Redeem if you win: if you receive a notification that you have won the Perk, bring your phone to the event and show your Klout Card from the Passbook on your iPhone
To become eligible for the VIP Klout Perk, download the Klout for iPhone app. When you are notified of your eligibility for VIP offers from Klout, click “OK” and you will receive confirmation of your selection. Once in Austin for SxSW Interactive, Klout will send offers to eligible influencers who have opt-ed in to the VIP program. Fifty influencers will then be notified that they have received the Perk. For entry, just show your Klout Card from the Passbook on your iPhone.
Doors will open at 7 p.m. with the event starting at 8 p.m., and all SxSW attendees are welcome. If you’re at SxSW Interactive and looking for things to do in Austin, make sure you have your Klout iPhone app downloaded. It might be your ticket to this amazing event.
