Win a weekend at the 2011 Wakarusa Festival
NOTE: This contest is now closed. Congratulations to our winners – Jeff Strowe and Ryan Wilks Koenig – both of whom will be blogging from Wakarusa 2011! Thanks to everyone who entered, and stay tuned to our contests page for more contests to come!
The Wakarusa Festival boasts a pretty stellar lineup this year, including My Morning Jacket, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Trombone Shorty, Ben Harper, Ryan Bingham, Langhorne Slim, Those Darlins, Hoots & Hellmouth, Ha Ha Tonka, Carrie Rodriguez and so many more. Now in its eighth year, the festival is based in Ozark, Arkansas, and will take place June 2-5.
We’re looking to send one lucky community member (and their friend) to Wakarusa 2011 as our official ND blogger. 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 2011. It’s up to you – we just ask, for the sake of making judging a little easier, that you use the phrase “Wakarusa 2011” somewhere in your blog post title.
To create a blog post: Click on “Blogs” in the top nav, then click on the “+Add” button. This will open a blogging tool with some fields to fill in. Place your title where it says “Post title,” and the body of your post in the big box marked “Entry.” Once you’ve entered your post, scroll down and click on the “Publish” button. No need to contact us to let us know you’ve entered – we’ll see it automatically.
This contest will close at 11:59 pm PST on Monday, Apr. 25, 2011. Our winner will be announced the next day. One lucky ND member will receive:
- 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
Those are all your rules. Go forth and blog, and good luck!
