Blog Your Way To Wakarusa 2013!
**NOTE: This contest is now closed. We are reviewing the entries and will be announcing our winner shortly. Thanks to everyone who entered!
The annual Wakarusa festival is gearing up to unleash its musical glory in Ozark, Ark., from May 30 – June 2 this year, with performances from Widespread Panic, The Black Crowes, Yonder Mountain String Band, Son Volt, Calexico, Ozomatli, Galactic, Gogol Bordello, Of Monsters and Men, Holy Ghost Tent Revival, Shovels & Rope, Langhorne Slim, Band of Heathens, Allen Stone, Delta Rae, ZZ Ward, David Wax Museum, Rose’s Pawn Shop, Spirit Family Reunion, and so much more. (Check out the Wakarusa website for the full lineup.)
For the past couple of years, we’ve been sending one lucky person (and their friend) to be our special blogger at Wakarusa, and we look forward to seeing who will blog their way to Wakarusa 2013!
If chosen, you’ll need to be able to get yourself there (the prize does not include travel expenses) with a laptop and whatever provisions you require for such an event. We’ll provide access to the festival and a camping pass. As our representative, you’ll need to blog from the festival, with a review each day while you’re there. The folks at Wakarusa will give you a press pass and access to wifi on site.
To enter, simply create a blog post on this site pertaining to the Wakarusa festival. Blogs posted elsewhere, entries posted in the comments section on this post, Twitter or Facebook will not be counted. You can profile one of the bands scheduled to play this year, reminisce about a previous Wakarusa you’ve attended, or state your case as to why you’d be the best person to blog for ND at Wakarusa 2013. It’s up to you – we just ask, for the sake of making judging a little easier, that you use the phrase “Wakarusa 2013” somewhere in your blog post title.
To post your blog on this site, click on BLOGS in the top navigation, then click +ADD in the upper right hand corner of the blog box and enter your post in the text space, then scroll to the bottom of that page and click “Publish.” (You’ll need to sign up or sign in first). No need to contact us to let us know you’ve entered – we’ll see it automatically.
You may enter anytime between now and next Friday, April 12. The contest will close at 11:59 p.m. PST on April 12, with our winner being announced the following Monday, April 15. In order that one ND community member can be our blogger from the festival, and take a friend along with them, the person chosen will win:
- Two four-day Wakarusa passes (including one press pass)
- One main venue camping pass with early arrival privileges
- One signed and numbered collector’s print
