Contests:: Win 2 passes to Evolve 2008 (!!!, Man Man, Battles)

Festival Web site

I'm actually not sure how this festival got such terrific acts, but Evolve 2008 is fixing to be like a scaled down, East Coast version of the Pitchfork Festival. Somehow, the hard working organizers got !!!, Man Man, Battles, Mark Farina to agree to show up in Antigonish and play in a field in the middle of Nova Scotia, and then sweetened the pot by getting a lot of East Coast talent to fill out the bill.

Not only do you get to see some huge International acts, probably more importantly you get a heavy dose of Canadian indie rockers (at least for my enjoyment level) like Two Hours Traffic, Brent Randall, Rebekah Higgs, Skratch Bastid, Hey Rosetta! and our good friend DJ Bones will all be there having fun. Don't you think you should be too?

All you have to do is drop us an email or a comment, and you can snag a Festival pass that is good for the whole kit and kaboodle. We will be taking entries until July 14th.

The festival runs for three days - July 25,26, & 27th - and should be a pretty amazing time. Just peep the lineup:

!!! / DJ Mark Farina / Battles / DJ Falcon / Man Man / Benevento - Russo Duo / That 1 Guy / MO7S/ Slowcoaster / Sonny D / Skratch Bastid / Jay Hamilton / Jimmy Swift Band / Steve Nurse / Grand Theft Bus / Nick Nonsense & Aaron Collier / Two Hours Traffic / DJ Atmosphere / Hey Rosetta! / Mizz Maxine / DJ Bones / Rebekah Higgs / Lee Fraser / De Lano / Scientists of Sound / Sleepless Nights / Tomcat Combat / Brent Randall and his Pinecones / Gratefully Deadicated Sound System / Chameleon Project / Logan Hudak / Share / Soundsyster / Isis / The Superfantastics / Tommy Knuckles / Christina Martin / Eclectic Heat / DVD / Steve The Viking / Kim Wempe / Brian Talbot / DJ Dono

I have yet to experience this festival, and would love to attend and especially see Battles perform. I also really enjoy the Halifax acts on the bill. It would make my Summer if I could get to go to this festival : )

Been on the fence about going the last few years (never been) but the organizers have put together a really dynamite lineup. Suffice it to say, I have booked that weekend off work. Cell phone bill can wait til next month.
