I grew up watching old school MTV and I’m a huge space geek so I was very excited last year when MTV released the Moonman badge to help promote the 2010 Video Music Awards. A year has passed and the long time Foursquare partner has decided to roll out a 2011 version of the MTV VMA Moonman badge. Just like last year, they have attached a contest to the badge which is always great to see from partners. All users who unlock the badge between now and August 20th will be entered to win a trip for 2 to attend the 2011 VMAs in Los Angeles on August 28th.

To unlock the badge you will need to follow MTV on Foursquare and check into one venue categorized as either a music venue or a record store. The following unlock text was shown when I earned mine during a visit to Criminal Records:
Dust off your meat dress and get ready for the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards on August 28th! Earning this badge just entered you to win a trip for two to attend the show in LA – your Teenage Dream come true!
This is a limited edition badge and is only available through the 28th. Have fun exploring Atlanta with MTV and good luck winning the VMAs trip to those of you who earn it before the 20th. Complete list of contest rules.
