[NME.com] Arctic Monkeys have hidden tickets to this year's Reading And Leeds Festivals inside just two copies of their new single.
The "golden tickets" for the August 28-30 event, will be placed at random inside the seven-inch version of 'Crying Lightning' which is released on Monday (August 17).
As previously reported, Arctic Monkeys are selling that version of the single exclusively through Oxfam's charity shops in the UK.
A ten-inch version of the single is being sold through conventional record shops.
In addition to the golden tickets, which will contain a code that the finders can enter online, the band are also hiding 40 signed copies of the seven-inch across Oxfam's network of shops.
A further 15 signed copies will be sent out at random to customers who buy the record using Oxfam.org.uk/shop.
Arctic Monkeys headline the Reading And Leeds Festivals alongside Radiohead and Kings Of Leon.
