Rockstar will hold a special “Grand Theft Auto Online” “I’m Not a Hipster” event this weekend to celebrate the launch of its update 1.14 on Tuesday.

“All roads lead to Los Santos this weekend, Friday June 20th through Sunday June 22nd, for an entirely unpretentious festival of huge in-game rewards, exclusive unlocks, ways to amass lots of bonus GTA$ and RP, special giveaways, competitions, live-streams and more as part of the official GTA Online ‘I'm Not a Hipster’ Event Weekend,” the New York City developer posted on its blog Wednesday.

Social Club members will also have the ability to collect in-game, exclusive T-shirts available to redeem one day each on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. If you play at some point during the weekend, the T-shirts are yours to keep.

More details can be found below.

Collectible T-shirts

Friday June 20th - The classic Bitch’N Dog Food tee - your favorite pet food brand since your halcyon days back in Liberty City.

Saturday June 21st - Show your friends that you're willing to pay more for music that sounds worse, with the Vinyl Countdown tee.

Sunday June 22nd - Pick up the Homies Sharp tee - perfect attire for those lazy and hazy daze with your Crew.

Each t-shirt will be available in clothes stores and your inventory as a wardrobe option after you enter GTA Online on the specified day. Make sure to play each day this weekend for your only chance to redeem and keep them all.

GET DOUBLE GTA$ WHEN PLAYING IN THE "I'M NOT A HIPSTER" EVENT PLAYLIST

Whether you're part of a tightly organized Crew or one that couldn't organize a debate on postmodernism in a microbrewery, the I'm Not a Hipster Event Playlist makes it easy to dive into some of the new Jobs included in the "I'm Not a Hipster" Update - and you'll get Double GTA$ this weekend only to boot. To access the Playlist just go to Online > Playlists > Rockstar Created in the GTA Online Start Menu and select "I'm Not a Hipster Event" from the options listed.

GET TRIPLE RP FOR ENEMY KILLS AND QUADRUPLE GTA$ INSIDE GANG ATTACK CRATES WHEN PLAYING THE THREE NEW GANG ATTACKS THIS WEEKEND

Gentrification has its critics and recently the Mirror Park, Chumash and East Vinewood areas have been teeming with unsavory characters who have taken umbrage against anyone wearing too-tight jeans. Three new Gang Attacks are now available to play in these areas and exclusively during the event weekend, they will yield 3X RP for each enemy kill as well as a 4X GTA$ bonus inside Gang Attack Crates upon completion. Consider it just rewards for protecting your right to individualism.

DOUBLE RP FOR KILL STREAKS AND HEADSHOTS IN DEATHMATCHES

You know that it's all about form and function, so attack with panache - aim for your enemy's funny haircut in Deathmatches to get Double RP bonuses for Kill Streaks and Headshots.

BET LIMIT INCREASED FOR ALL JOBS TO GTA$10K

Risk showing everyone that you're actually trying and put your money where your mustache is by laying a bet on yourself or another player. The Max Bet limit for all Jobs will be raised to GTA$10,000.

EVENT CRATE DROPS

Look out for Event Crate Drops, each one a smorgasbord of huge RP bonuses as well as GTA$ stacks, heavy-duty RPGs, miniguns, sticky bombs and more, falling from the skies in the city's most painfully hip locations such as Mirror Park.

THE #IMNOTAHIPSTER SNAPMATIC CONTEST

Submit your most creative, most amusing and/or most artfully composed shots of the new content in The "I'm Not a Hipster" Update for the opportunity to win GTA$1M and a HIPSTER vanity license plate for your in-game vehicle. We're looking for your best costs-a-fortune-to-look-broke outfits; effortlessly artful poses with your disaffected Crewmates next to your fleet of Glendales, Blades and other brand new vehicles; and anything else that proves you are definitely, absolutely (not) a hipster.

To make your shots eligible for entry, simply log in to Social Club and tag them #IMNOTAHIPSTER between now and the end of Sunday.

THE #IMNOTAHIPSTER CREATOR COMPETITION

If GTA Online's Creator tool is your preferred creative outlet, we'll be on the lookout for standout Jobs (whether Races, Deathmatches or Captures) that feature the new vehicles and weapons in The "I'm Not a Hipster" Update to also reward with GTA$1M and the HIPSTER vanity plate. Just tag them #IMNOTAHIPSTER in Social Club between now and Sunday night to be eligible in the competition.
