CONTEST – 10,000 Lakes Festival Giveaway
10KLFYou can be forgiven for thinking that Detroit Lake was somewhere in Michigan. I certainly did. But as it turns out, it’s in Minnesota and it’s surrounded by some 9,999 other lakes – give or take a few – and that’s where the 10,000 Lakes Festival gets its namesake.
The 7th annual event will take place from July 22 to 25 on Soo Pass Ranch in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota and feature headliners Dave Matthews Band, Widespread Panic and Wilco… so yes, you could say they have a particular target audience. But that’s not to say it’s all jammy goodness – also performing are Gomez, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Kathleen Edwards, Akron/Family and scads more, all in what would appear to be a stunning natural setting.
So if you were trying to decide this Summer between going camping and getting in touch with nature or hitting up a music festival, you can do both. Courtesy of Music Allies, I’ve got a pair of tickets to the festival to give away (for Canadian reference, Detroit Lakes is a scenic (?) four-and-one-half hour drive from Winnipeg). If you want to throw your hat in the ring, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to go to 10,000 Lakes” in the subject line and your full mailing address in the body. Contest will close at midnight, June 23, giving the winner time to dig their tent out of the crawl space and air it out.
