Free tickets to SweetWater 420 Festival

[Congrats to randomly selected winner Neal M. and thanks to all who entered!]

This weekend, Kid Rock, The Roots, Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, Bastille, Ludacris, The Disco Biscuits, Cypress Hill and many, many more will visit Centennial Olympic Park for the 12th annual edition of Atlanta's SweetWater 420 Festival.

Want to go? Great, because the festival organizers have provided me with one pair of general admission three-day passes to give away.

Performances will run from 4-11 p.m. Friday, noon-11 p.m. Saturday and noon-10 p.m. Sunday.

To enter, send me an email at with the answer to this question: How much money did last year’s SweetWater 420 Fest inject into the local economy? (I’ll help you out – you can find the answer here).

Please only enter if you can attend the concert and please, only one submission per email address. Make sure to put “SweetWater Tickets” in the subject line or I won’t see your entry and thus, you have zero chance of winning.

Deadline to enter is noon Wednesday, April 20.

If you would like to buy tickets to the festival, they are still available with prices starting at $52 for a single-day general admission pass. Click here for the full rundown of ticket options:

Also, while it isn’t required to enter, I would appreciate a Twitter and/or Facebook follow.

Good luck!
