Write a funny or moving essay, win a pair of passes to Bonnaroo

The Times is giving away four pairs of passes to Bonnaroo.
  • The Times is giving away four pairs of passes to Bonnaroo.

So Bonnaroo is coming up soon in beautiful Manchester, Tenn. (June 7-10, to be precise) and the Arkansas Times has four pairs of passes to the gigantic music festival to give away to you, our loyal readers. “But how can I win one of these pairs of passes?” you’re probably wondering. Glad you asked.

All you have to do is write us an essay of 250 words or fewer about your craziest, funniest, most awful or hilarious or heartwarming or hair-raising concert experience and you'll be entered in the contest. While that might sound like homework, just consider these two things: 1) 250 words is not that many; and 2) you’ll get the chance to see Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Phish, The Beach Boys, The Roots, Alice Cooper, Feist, Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings, Tune-Yards, St. Vincent, The Shins, Skrillex, Kenny Rogers (!), Bad Brains (!!), Garfunkel & Oates (!!!), GZA, Kurt Vile, Alabama Shakes, Flying Lotus and literally dozens more.

We’ll pick the four essays that we find to be the craziest, funniest, most awful or hilarious or heartwarming or hair-raising of the bunch, and each winner will receive two passes. It’s that simple.

Now the caveats and whatnot: the contest isn’t open to any current or former Times employees or their kinfolk (sorry ya’ll!); you should only enter if you actually plan on going to the festival (no scalping!); 250 words or fewer, seriously (brevity is the soul of wit!); only one entry per person; the contest closes a week from today (May 22 at 9 a.m.); email your name, phone number and essay (as well as any questions you might have) to robertbell@arktimes.com.

So get to writing! It’ll be fun. We’ll publish the winners here on Rock Candy.
