to get tickets Live8 will be issuing a multiple choice question, you then text/sms your answer in and the correct answers will be entered in a lottery draw from which ticket winners will be selected.
you can enter as many times as you like but each text/sms will cost you £1.50 (about £3)

with millions of people entering multiple times, the phone service alone will make a LOT of money.
with the grounds and artists performing for free, and i believe the grounds staff too, it would be nice to know what aspects of the concert they are going to use it for, i would presume construction etc but i dont really know
I think this is quite clever! I'm assuming that money is for charity. Live Aid made about 100,000,000.

That's only for the UK show however....there will be no tickets for the other venues. I'm curious to see how they are going to set that up.

A significant amount of the text money, £1.6m, is going to the Princes Trust which would have held the Party In The Park concert on the same day...
