Portland's biggest music festival is nearly here! MusicFest NW returns next week, boasting over 160 acts at venues throughout Portland. Neko Case, Animal Collective, Deerhunter and Godspeed You! Black Emperor are just a few examples of what we can look forward to, and we're excited to be presenting the likes of Charles Bradley and Shuggie Otis, Superchunk, Justin Townes Earle and Typhoon (not to mention our annual day party at Mississippi Studios). To celebrate, we're giving away festival wristbands and tickets all week long this week, giving you plenty of chances to win your way in!
Here's how it will work: we've got wristbands for up for grab all week, with a new drawing happening every day. In addition, we're also giving away ticket pairs to a different show each day-- so those who don't win a wristband are still in the mix for that's day's show tickets. Not a bad consolation prize! Come back every day and enter before midnight for a new chance at a wristband or a pair of tickets.
What are those shows, you're wondering? Glad you asked!
