Thank you to everyone who played our “Who will be playing at the VMworld party this year?” game. There has been some great guesses and some interesting ones (Whitney Houston hologram anyone?). But without further adue we are pleased to announce that the artist playing at VMworld 2012 US is:  JON BON JOVI AND THE KINGS OF SUBURBIA

Musically, Jon Bon Jovi has set the bar for nearly three decades as one of the world's most successful musicians. Globally, Jon's Grammy winning band Bon Jovi has sold over 130 million albums, consistently delivered #1 albums and Top Ten hits and performed more than 2,600 concerts in over 50 countries for upwards of 34 million fans.

We look forward to seeing you at VMworld 2012 US. The VMworld Party is only open to Full Conference and Guest pass attendees, so if you aren't registered yet....WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

We will be reaching out to the winner (he knows who he is) to provide more information, so if you don't see a Twitter DM in the next few minutes than you were unforunately not the first person to guess the right answer.

Your third hint is: The artist has a discography spanning over two decades.

In case you forgot the first two hints, they were:
- The artist has been on People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People in the World" list at least once in the history of that list.
- The artist has won at least one Grammy Award.

Share your thoughts on who might be playing and the "first" correct guess will get the opportunity to attend the sound check live, taking place on Wednesday, August 29.

How do you submit your guess? 
By tweeting your guess and including #VMworldBand

Remember about the catch...

Each person is only allowed 1 “official” guess per hint (provided on June 12, 14, 19 and 21) AND must add the word “official” to the guessing tweet.

To redeem the prize, you must BE:
- A registered VMworld 2012 US attendee
- A "Follower" of our http://twitter.com/vmworld account

Remember VMware employees -- you are not eligible to win

We'll announce the winner and REVEAL the band on June 22.

So, you are registered and attending VMworld 2012 US in San Francisco...or for some reason you are still waiting to register.

The big question on people's mind is “Who will be playing at the VMworld party this year?”


Last year, we brought you The Killers...this year???

Now is your chance to share your thoughts on who might be playing, with an incentive.  The "first" correct guess will get the opportunity to attend the sound check live, taking place on Wednesday, August 29.

The first hint is “The artist has won at least one Grammy award.” You didn’t think we were going to make this easy, did you?

Oh, and sorry VMware employees -- you are not eligible to win

A blog entry can be almost anything ? your thoughts and observations on the industry, your experiences, notes on a session, an interview, or a photo essay. A photo is worth a thousand words, and a video can be worth a million. We want to find the blog entry, photo, and video that best exemplify both the VMworld 2009 conference and this year's theme:

 

"Hello Freedom"

 

The winner of this contest will be the creative entries that best capture either the experience of being at VMworld 2009 or the freedom of virtualizing your business infrastructure ? and if you can do both at the same time, all the better.

So get out your camcorder, digital camera, iPhone, Blackberry, laptop or just put on your blogger cap and share your experience.  Bring the conference to life and win a prize in the process!
