Riot Fest put together a weird lineup this year. On one end, they landed some INSANE reunions by legendary bands like the Replacements and Rocket From the Crypt. And on the other end, they packed it with a bunch of bands we’ve never heard of. So if you’re like us, and don’t want to pay full price for a half amazing lineup, we’ve got you covered. Just enter our Riot Fest contest. Details below…
Prize: A pair of 2-Day Passes to Toronto’s Riot Fest & Travelling Exposition on Saturday August 24 and Sunday August 25.
How to enter: Tweet something shitty and snarky and we’ll pick one winner at random. You have to include: a link to this page as well as “@JadedPunkDotCom” and “@RiotFest.” Here are a few examples you can use:
Ugh. I guess I’ll go to @RiotFest but only if @JadedPunkDotCom sends me for free. [URL]
I’ve never heard of half of these bands on @RiotFest’s lineup. I just want to see RFTC. Hook me up, @JadedPunkDotCom. [URL]
I’m not spending $70 just to see the Replacements at @RiotFest so @JadedPunkDotCom better give me some free tickets. [URL]
If I have to hang out in Canada for two days for @RiotFest, the assholes at @JadedPunkDotCom better pay for it. [URL]
If @JadedPunkDotCom gives me free @RiotFest tickets, it will totally make up for them trashing my band’s demo. [URL]
Winner: One winner will be selected and notified by August 2. If that’s you, your name will be added to the Will Call list with a +1.
Not on Twitter? No problem. Same rules apply for Facebook. Post the link to this page on your timeline and tag Jaded Punk and Riot Fest.
That’s it. Good luck. And please only enter if you can make it to Toronto. Let us know how the Replacements are and if you end up getting laid, it wouldn’t be the worst thing if you hooked us up with some pics. And remember, if it gets rained out, just do what we did last year and convince the bands to play in a small bar nearby.
