This week at SXSW, 6-time Grammy winner Big Boi will be checking in around Austin, TX. Foursquare users can follow Big Boi for a chance to unlock a ‘Golden Ticket Badge,’ which gets you tickets to the rapper’s show.

Users have a 1 in 2,000 chance of winning. To be entered, simply check in all over SXSW. If you happen to check-in and receive the Golden Ticket, bring your new badge to the Pepsi MAX Lot at 3rd and San Jacinto between 11am – 6pm on Mar. 14 to pick up tickets for you and a friend.

The Big Boi marketing campaign is a result of a recent Foursquare and Pepsi MAX partnership. The Pepsi MAX & Foursquare present Big Boi LIVE show will take place at the Seaholm Power Plant on Mar. 14th @ 8pm.
