It's done! Many arduous hours of checking later, and we have the results! Gracious, some of you were really good at Street Team. I suppose it's just not my forte, I could never get higher than 62. Maybe that's why my band isn't doing so well...
Anyway, without further ado:
The title of GRAND CHAMPION of the first Peka-Boo and Battle of the Bands competition goes to
Congratulations Horns And Roses! You managed to get 251 fans supporting you, achieving a high score between you of 350,161 points. You will be contacted to discuss a special prize item which you guys are going to help design.
Now, we decided to award a Runner Up prize, as this was really a neck and neck race the last few days with two bands shooting way ahead of all the competition. With 344 fans supporting them and a score of 345,064 - Runner Up goes to The Granny Smiths! Congratulations, old folk! (You can hear me ok, right?)
Now onto the genre winners. The Grand Champion and Runners Up were both in Punk/Rock, so the other genre winners are as follows:
Pop Genre Winner - The Thrill Seekers
Indie/Folk Genre Winner - Cerv!dae
Electronic/Disco Genre Winner - Chai Punk
Other Genre Winner - Tempest Sky
Well done to the genre winners! Prizes will be coming your way, and to those who supported you.
Individual High Scores: Our top scorers for this competition can't be left out.
Dreadnought with a score of 17,560
Assiejj_x with a score of 10,085
Walrus with a score of 9,584
Wow, you guys were really in tune with the game!
And of course, as I mentioned at the start and at various points during the competition, there will also be prizes sent out for participation - both in joining a band, and in supporting one. And prizes for getting into the finals. Keep an eye out in the coming weeks for the Music Shop delivery truck which will be delivering the mass of prizes to everyone!
Until next time. What a finale!
That's it! It's over! Hundreds of scores have been submitted, and now they just need to be tallied up and checked over vigorously. It's been quite the major battle! Really building up with a crescendo this past week. I might have even enjoyed conducting it. But don't tell anyone.
Later on this evening we should have the results ready for you - and then you can congratulate yourselves, or pat each other on the back in consolation and go visit Oatmeal in his last few hours at Peka-Boo before everything's packed up.
The Junko Enchanced, Lililace Gilded Masque, and Argo Purple Heart lines have been retired from Subeautique. :(
One less thing for VIPs to worry about: you can now let goat of your worries in the privacy of your own home!
Reminder: Battle of the Bands ends today in the middle of the day, and the rest of Peka-Boo will be wrapping up at midnight. Enjoy your last day at the festival!

Pssst. Hey! You over there. Yeah, you.
That festival merch is pretty expensive, right? What if I told you that I managed to get my hands on some primo top-quality stuff and I'm willing to offer it to you at quite a discount!
Just walk on over to my little booth the next time you're leaving the festival, and see what I have to offer. It's the same deal as my normal gig over in Pina Park. You pick one of three boxes and you get whatever's inside. No peeking, though!
I need to make sure there's enough to go around, so I'll only sell you one item every one or two hours. Maybe if you've got one of those fancy VIP passes, I'll let it slide a little bit and sell you more sooner.
So what are you waiting for? You can't get lucky if you don't even try!
Show off your VIP pride with this adorable little Oatmeal sticker! Careful to keep it away from him, he might eat it...
Note: We've added the prize to the achievement for having 5 of your wishes granted--how appropriate!

Bring home a taste of Peka-Boo for those who are a bit too young to attend themselves! Grab yours in the VIP Lounge.

Need any of these older Token Shop items to complete your Peka-Boo look? Or maybe a sticker to remind you of the scorching heat?
VIPs can now treat themselves to some yoga to relax and replenish after a hard week of festivities!
Pete is the weekend quest! Do those quests for increased prizes and special rewards!

Are you enough of a traditionalist to pull off these new tartans? Just perfect for the hot festival weather!
We’ve received our last big shipment of clothes at the Fashion Yurt! You’ll find a wide range of items to enjoy wearing around the festivities.
The Couture Yurt also has new items! Remember that this yurt uses cash shop credits, not sP!

Well, they're finally here! Holy Oracle there were a lot of entries. I actually had to work! At least some of you had the foresight to give me a good chuckle. Or maybe that was just accidental. Either way, good work, everyone that entered!
We've narrowed the finalists down, and have 6 finalists for each genre. Unfortunately, we had to cancel the R&B/Soul genre as there were so few entries, entrants from that category were moved into the 'Other' category to be judged. (I guess Subeta has no soul! Or rhythm. I'm sure we have plenty of Blues)
Now, to find our Grand Champion, the bands are going to need some support. This is where you guys come in! Have a look through our Finalist Showdown and pick your favourite band, the one you want to support right to the bitter end. That's the band you're going to be battling for! And how do you battle, I hear you ask in wonder? Well, you need to play Street Team of course! Woah! Much game! Very battle!
For now, scores can't be sent - we want to give you a chance to pick out your favorite bands and get familiar with the game for a few hours first. But starting from around noon tomorrow you will be able to start sending scores - and each score sent will go towards your chosen bands total! Users can send 3 scores per day - or 4 if they have a Gold Account. VIP users' scores count for 25% extra towards their total! (So, a score of 20 will give you 25 points!)
Now, prizes. There are going to be a variety - but seeing as you guys continually impress us with your skills, we haven't yet decided exactly how they're going to be distributed. There will likely be prize(s) for the winner of each genre, and then the grand champion will be rewarded - along with all the people that supported the grand champions band. There will also separately be prizes for users that submit the highest scores, so even if you are in a team that maybe aren't doing so well - you can still work hard and achieve something on your own! The Grand Champion band will get to work with us on designing some items, so all prizes will be awarded after Peka-Boo has come to an end. Score-sending will end on Monday 28th, again around about noon so that we can tally up the scores and announce the winners in the evening!
Every one of you could be instrumental in getting a band to victory. So pick who you want to support, and stand by them! Yeesh, that was a lot of information. I'm going back to my tent.
This new VIP plushie is the cat's meow!

Apologies for the short downtime there! We had to fix a problem with the Fashion Yurts charging the wrong amounts. If you'd purchased any of the custom wearable prize items (not the winning custom wearable items), you'll need to repurchase them, as Lindsay apparently wasn't doing her job properly before, and wasn't taking anyone's CSC. And then she was taking SP instead. You had one job, Lindsay.
A staff member will be around in the comments section to answer any further questions!
Hey! Just wanted to update you guys that the prizes for the custom wearable competition have been given out!
Now, we decided to make most of these prizes available to purchase in the Couture tab of the Fashion Yurts - that's the one that costs cash shop credits! This way, the prize winners get something good that will keep its value, and regular users that like to collect a variety of things get a chance to purchase these items if they like - albeit at a cost! We felt this was the best, or at least fairest, way to do things, seeing as those that didn't enter didn't get to see what the exact prizes would be!
Hey, beautiful people! (That's all of you!) We were just blown away by your entries for our little contest, and after much deliberation, we decided we couldn't just have 6 winners. And since our favorites were very much the same as your favorites, we've decided to instead have 10 winners - 5 that are just facial features, and 5 others!

Winners should find their free copy of their item(s) in their inventories, the rest of the prizes for participants will be given out later today! In the meantime, these winning items can now be found in the Fashion Yurts! Congratulations everybody! And thank you so much for making this a wonderful competition!
VIPs who have caught colds from that storm earlier today will be glad to know that there is some high quality, 4-ply, cashmere-infused tissues available for any of their dripping needs. There's brown paper towels for everyone else.
