Golden Ticket

Going for Gold? Don’t miss the opportunity to win exclusive Festival Treasure

The Emirates Airline Festival of Literature has today released a very limited number of Golden Tickets, giving the ticket holder unlimited access to all the Festival has to offer, including a couple money-can’t-buy opportunities to mingle with authors at selected exclusive events.

The Golden Ticket is exclusive and limited to only five. One will be available to win through our media partner Dubai Eye, three are available to buy on our website, and one is up for grabs by one lucky adventurer who can get to the end of a treasure hunt by solving our riddles.

Please note the competition and the prize is only for 18+

The treasure hunt will open from Monday 18th February and run for a week.

If you think you can solve our riddles and find the treasure, see the first clue below..

A place where goods are bought and sold lies by our Festival home
There you’ll find a ship on land where friendly pirates roam.
That is also where I am, from the ocean I did crawl,
And I have so many limbs – make sure to count them all
Then go to the customer service desk inside the shopping mall
Tell them how many legs I have and ask them for the best clue of all
The next clue they will then provide to take you on your way
To the final stage of the treasure hunt, it shouldn’t take all day!
