CONTEST – Sappyfest Six: With Or Without You – July 29-31, 2011
What?: A Maritime institution – at least for the last six years – wherein some of Canada’s (and occasionally non-Canadian) best indie acts descend upon the town of Sackville, New Brunswick, and generally make things musically awesome for a weekend.
When: July 29 to 31, 2011
Where: Sackville, New Brunswick
Who: The lineup is perennially strong and this year’s is no exception – in attendance will be Owen Pallett, The Acorn, Chad VanGaalen, Hooded Fang, Julie Doiron, Little Scream, The Sadies and many more.
How: Festival passes are $50-$60 per day or $99 for the weekend, but courtesy of Pigeon Row, I’ve got a pair of weekend passes to give away. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to go to Sappyfest” in the subject line and your full name and mailing address in the body. Contest closes at midnight, July 16.
What else: There’s a sampler of Sappyfest artists available for free over at Zunior; use coupon code “sap2011x3d” to get the goods.
