12 Days of Christmas giveaway Day 12: Free tickets to SweetWater 420 Festival

[Congrats to randomly selected winner Tim H. - and thanks to all who participated in this year's giveaway!]


And so this is Christmas...

A merry one to you and yours as we wind down this year's 12 Days of Christmas giveaway.

Thanks to all who participated and most importantly, thank you for your continued readership.

OK, so what better way to cap a contest - and again, a huge thank you to all of my venue contacts, PR pals and concert promoters who so quickly and graciously agreed to provide these cool gifts -- than with a pair of three-day passes  to the SweetWater 420 Festival? 

The 2017 installment takes place April 21-23 at Centennial Olympic Park, and acts announced so far include Widespread Panic, Trey Anastasio Band, Slightly Stoopid, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Dark Star Orchestra, Ween, Dirty Heads and Lettuce. 

Tickets are on sale now at and start at $123 for a three-day general admission pass.

To enter to win the free pair:

Email me at by 6 p.m. Dec. 26. Please do not enter if you cannot attend and please, only one entry per email address.

You must put “Day 12” in the subject line or I will not see your email. If you tell me anything other than “Day 12,” I will not see your email and you will have absolutely no chance of winning.

I will randomly select — and contact — a winner on Dec. 26. I will also post the winning name here once I’ve received confirmation.

While this isn’t a requirement, I would really appreciate a follow on Twitter or Facebook .

Good luck!
