Great news for One Republic fans attending SAP TechEd 2011 in Las Vegas!

Every Friday, we will select one winner. Each winner will receive 2 passes to this exclusive pre-show event, for you and a friend. 


One Republic has an incredible online following with over 120 million video views, an impressive 2 million fans on Facebook, and nearly 900,000 fans on as well. OneRepublic’s first single, “Apologize”, received the largest amount of air play in history with 10,331 plays in one week. The remix version, featured on Timbaland‘s album Shock Value was a smash hit internationally, reaching number-one in sixteen countries and gaining 10 million downloads (the largest number of digital downloads for any song to date)



The winner must be a paid-in full SAP TechEd attendee to redeem the passes. A winner must immediately register for SAP TechEd if he/she has not already done so, or be disqualified. Registration, travel and accommodations are the responsibility of the contestants.


How to Compete for Passes and Winner Selection Process

Tweet the message:

  • Help me win backstage passes to #MeetOneRepublic at @SAPTechEd Las Vegas (pls retweet)


Again, you can ask your followers to RETWEET your tweet to increase the number of entries you have in our “virtual fishbowl”.


The winner will be selected listing all the tweets received and then using a random number-generator to choose the winning tweet received that week.  The person who originated the selected tweet will win.

Sam will be the winner if this tweet is selected.
