Free Nelsonville Music Festival Tickets

Win Free Nelsonville Music Festival Tickets

So we came across this amazing contest being curated by the Hocking Hills Tourism Association. Not only are they giving away 4 pairs of tickets to the Nelsonville Music Festival, but the grand prize winner also gets a 3 night stay in a Hocking Hills cabin during the festival.

Now, you may know us as cynical here at RethinkPopMusic and ticket contests are hardly our thing, but this one passes our test… I mean, its a non-profit and have you seen the Nelsonville Music Festival lineup?!

Friday night alone features Dinosaur Jr., Kurt Vile and Shakey Graves. While longtime RethinkPopMusic sweethearts Lucius play alongside The Avett Brothers and The Head & The Heart Saturday.

Anyways, we will be previewing a lot of the earlier acts as the festival approaches, in the meantime here’s an article from 2011 regarding the beautifully-talented Lucius.

See you at the Nelsonville Music Festival!

Laissez Faire Club stage at The Alternative Escape (Sat 10.5.14)

We’re delighted to be teaming up with the good folk at Akira Records and Smashing Blouse to curate this quite frankly amazing bill at The Great Escape Festival in Brighton this year. Taking place at Latest Music Bar (14-17 Manchester Street) on the final evening of festivities (Saturday 10 May), we’ll have not one but two stages in the venue (downstairs plugged in and upstairs acoustic), jam packed with bands and artists we think are the real deal.

Entry is free with a festival ticket, or £3 otherwise. We’re kicking off at 5pm and going all out with a bang until the end. Set times are as follows (you’ll notice we’ve scheduled it so you won’t miss a minute of the action):
