Sonar Festival: DJ Gig Auction on e-Bay

I received this today from Sonar PR Central. They are selling DJ gigs if you want to play at Sonar Festival in Barcelona. Gigs are being auctioned on e-Bay. We live in a capitalist society in which everything becomes commodity (unfortunately). In the spirit of PLUR, I think it would be revolutionary if raised funds were donated to charity or some noble cause. Some millionaire DJs would be motivated to pay even more to participate and help people. See below:

Sónar 2011 is up for auction with 2 extraordinary passes:
Introducing the DJ PASS... Is performing at Sónar your dream? Now you can achieve it with DJ PASS. This is a unique and unrepeatable offer enabling you to buy a 50-minute slot in the booth of the new SonarCar stage, at Sonar by Night (Barcelona) and perform in front of thousands of people. Prepare your set, visit ebay from Monday 2nd May onwards and start bidding. SonarCar is waiting for you.

  1. dodgy alert! a 50 min set would be just a wind up it takes 2 to 3 hours to do the thing justice. I wouldn't even contemplate going as this is proof they are clueless.
