Contest: Go camping with Mumford & Sons

Contest: Go camping with Mumford & Sons Courtesy JAM USA
Written by Chris Ward, Marketing/Communications

Wanna go camping with Mumford & Sons? This summer, the band who sold out The Pageant on their last trip through town are embarking on a pretty unique cross-country concept: six concert dates at strange, hand-picked locales around the US, with the option to camp with other musical pioneers making their way across the fertile summer terrain. And we've got four pairs of passes.

This show takes place in Dixon, IL on Saturday, August 18th. You can read all those details right here. One other neat thing: each ticket has a download code where you can get a compilation of recordings from other shows on the Stopover Tour. Pretty spiffy.

And winning passes to this special event is easier than waxing your old-timey mustache. We're looking for one sentence campfire stories.

For instance, the sentence can be a complete story: "One time I was roasting a hot dog and it exploded" or "The last time I went camping I caught an arrow to the knee."

The sentence can even be out of context, but tell a story. For instance: "We left the marsh that afternoon, and Bill and I haven't talked about what happened since" or even "Under the stars with a bottle of Boones between us and the entire summer ahead of us, neither of us had to say a thing."

Have fun, be creative, and keep it to one sentence only. The top four (4) entries will recieve a pair of Mumford & Sons tickets and camping passes each.

 

THE SIMPLE RULES

1. Enter as many times as you'd like, but only one entry will be considered. Have fun.

2. This contest runs from Thursday, June 7 to Monday, June 11 at 5 p.m. CST

3. PLEASE give us some way to contact you in the Disqus comments field. Can't say this enough. There are a few easy ways to do this. You can click "Login" to Disqus near the comment field and login via any of the options (Facebook, Google, etc.). Alternately, leave your email address in your comment in an "Joe Blow AT email.com" format if you'd like (to avoid evil spam crawling internet bots).

4. Winner is responsible for getting to the show themselves. We mean, we'll tell you the best roads to take or whatever. But getting there is on you.

 

HEY YOU!

(Now go back and read Rule 3 again, so you can win the tickets! Some of y'all are forgetting to login to Disqus or give us an email to contact you. Have fun.)
