Win VIP Passes To Northside Fest

We’re doing the first Stateside show with Danish punks Iceage at L Magazine’s 2011 Northside Festival (a night also featuring Prurient’s first NYC show in over two years). Of course, outside that, there are (more than) plenty of noteworthy showcases and sets to catch: Beiruit (outdoors), Atlas Sound, Twin Sister, Guided By Voices (with Wavves and Surfer Blood), Laurel Halo, Mount Eerie, YACHT, and dozens of others are making appearances. The festival takes place 6/16-19 at various Brooklyn venues. If you’re in the area, and love music, you’ll want to attend. To make things easier, we have a few Northside-related prizes to give away: A Grand Prize of a pair of “Golden Tickets” plus Runner Up prizes featuring festival passes and tickets to specific shows. Here’s how it breaks down:

One winner gets pair of Golden Tickets. This includes:
• Two (2) Festival Passes
• VIP access to outdoor shows
• VIP Parties
• Two (2) meals at BK Fleet
• Artist Lounge & Happy Hours
• Merch Pack from bands

If you don’t snag that one, we’re also giving away these Runner Up prizes (one pair to each winner):
• Two (2) pairs of tickets to Guided By Voices show
• Two (2) pairs of festival passes
• One (1) pair of tickets to Beirut concert

To be eligible to win, all you have to do is be a fan of Stereogum on Facebook, and comment on this post with your favorite song by your favorite Northside-participating band after logging-in via Facebook Connect (do not use your ‘Gum user account on this post — we’ll have to be able to check if you are a fan of Stereogum on FB when the sweepstakes ends). We’ll pick a winner from the comments posted here, at random. Deadline to enter is 6/13 at 5:30PM EST. Have your comment logged by then, and you’re in.

(You’ll find the full list of Northside bands at the official site.)

UPDATE: We’ve chosen our winners. Who’ll be contacted shortly…
