CONTEST – Canadian Music Festivals A-Plenty – July 2011

Photo By Frank YangFrank YangIt’s just about Summer (officially) and Summers are made for lounging around on large patches of grass, perhaps with some music to keep you company. Perhaps some live music. At a festival. There’s no shortage of events at which to get your festival on across Canada – Exclaim does a fine job every year of rounding up what’s what from coast to coast – but if you need a little extra incentive to make a decision as to where to plant your ass in the coming months, maybe I can help.

Courtesy of Rock Paper Scissors, I’ve got a variety of passes to give away for a few festivals around the country, which will be of varying interest depending on where you reside and what you’re into. They shake down as follows, instructions to enter noted within each writeup.

What: Vancouver Island MusicFest
Where: Courtenay, British Columbia
When: July 8 to July 10, 2011
Who: Alison Krauss & Union Station, David Crosby, Randy Newman and more
What: One pair of weekend passes to give away.
How: Email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to go to the Vancouver Island MusicFest” in the subject line and your full name and mailing address in the body before midnight, June 30.

What: Dawson City Music Festival
Where: Dawson City, Yukon Territory
When: July 15 to 17, 2011
Who: Yukon Blonde, Shout Out Out Out Out, Rich Aucoin and more
What: One pair of weekend passes to give away.
How: Email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to go to the Dawson City Music Festival” in the subject line and your full name and mailing address in the body before midnight, June 30.

What: Calgary Folk Music Festival
Where: Prince’s Island Park, Calgary, Alberta
When: July 21 to July 24, 2011
Who: Blue Rodeo, Yo La Tengo, Coeur de pirate and more
What: One pair of weekend passes to give away.
How: Email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to go to the Calgary Folk Fest” in the subject line and your full name and mailing address in the body before midnight, July 7.

What: Hillside Festival
Where: Guelph Lake, Guelph, Ontario
When: July 22 to July 24, 2011
Who: Shad, Karkwa, Dan Mangan and more
What: Two pairs of single-day passes for each day of the festival
How: Email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to go to Hillside” in the subject line and your full name and mailing address in the body before midnight, July 7. Please note in the body which of the three days you would prefer to go to, and you can list multiple dates but unless there’s not enough entries to allott passes to all different people, which I don’t expect, then winning one pair eliminates you from contention for the rest. Don’t worry, it makes sense in my head.
