Sasquatch Music Festival 2011by
The Sasquatch Music Festival is happening this coming weekend, May 27th to May 30th, at The Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington State. The four-day music festival has been sold out for a while now and looking at the stellar line-up, one can see why.
Artists include Foo Fighters, Death Cab for Cutie, Modest Mouse, The Flaming Lips, The Decemberists, Robyn, Flogging Molly, Cold War Kids, Tokyo Police Club, Against Me!, K-OS, City and Colour, Vancouver’s own Dan Mangan, and many more.
Rumour has it that the Kokanee-stealing Sasquatch may be spotted around The Gorge as well so it may be the right time to wear your Sasquatch hunting hat which is available in 20-packs of Kokanee (who is a presenting sponsor of the festival).
Lucky for one of my readers, Kokanee also has a spare pair of full festival passes (that’s two, four-day passes) available to give away and they’ve partnered with me to run the contest. If you missed out on getting tickets, have friends who are going, or are up for an awesome musical adventure this weekend, here’s how you can enter to win two full festival passes:
Since the festival starts in three days, this will be a quick 24-hour contest so the winner has time to plan their trip across the border. I will draw one winner at 10:00am tomorrow, Wednesday, May 25th.
Update The winner is Brian!
Fine Print: There is no purchase necessary and you must be 19 years or older to participate in this ticket giveaway contest courtesy of Kokanee.
