There is another method that seems to be gaining popularity: asking for the festival to pretend that you're engaged in a work meeting on Friday afternoon and that's why you'll be away from your desk.

Festival X, which heads to Australia at the end of next month, says it has received requests from people asking for organisers to vouch for them when they put in a 'work meeting' or an 'out-of-office' in their work calendar.

Naturally, the festival can't get into trouble with companies and businesses around the country, however they are willing to make an exception.

The festival has revealed it will officially back a few lucky people to have their 'totally work-related' meeting and will write to their employer saying they need the employee for 'official business' on the Friday when it comes to Brisbane.

It doesn't matter if you're a plumber or an advertising executive, we're sure the people at Festival X will come up with a good lie to get you through the doors.

They've asking for people to email them to find out the details and, fingers crossed, your boss will believe the Outlook Event Request.

Festival X is bringing some massive names to the Land Down Under, including Calvin Harris, Steve Aoki, Armin van Buuren and Alison Wonderland.
