CoS Giveaway: Predict Bonnaroo’s 2011 lineup, win a pair of passes!


There’s currently 14 feet of snow in Chicago, which basically means summer is already overdue. And while we can’t do anything to change the speed of time, we can put you in a summer mindset or, more specifically, a Bonnaroo mindset.

Around these parts (the music blogosphere, I mean), nothing says summer like standing in the blazing fields of Manchester, Tennessee while you eat 2-for-$1 Grilled Cheese and watch Jeff Tweedy and friends tear up the mainstage. This year’s edition will of course prove all that more special, as it marks Bonnaroo’s 10th anniversary. As you may have noticed, Consequence of Sound is partaking in the festivities with a series of six giveaways. Last month, we asked you to tell us your first Bonnaroo “moment” in exchange for DVDs and posters. Now, for contest #2, we offer perhaps the most sought after of any prize — tickets to this year’s festival.

Of course, there’s a catch. We’ll be giving away a pair of Bonnaroo four-day passes to the person who best correctly guesses this year’s lineup. In the comment section below, please list 40 acts who you believe will appear on the bill. Each correct guess is worth one point.

We’ll also give bonus points to all individuals who help spread the word about this contest via Facebook, Twitter, and email. Just take a screen grab of your “spreading of the word” and email it to Here are some suggestions:

— On Twitter: Hey @coslive is giving away @bonnaroo 2011 tickets! All you have to do is guess this year’s lineup!

— On Facebook/email: Hey, Consequence of Sound is giving away tickets to Bonnaroo 2011! All you have to do is guess this year’s lineup!

You can earn a maximum of three bonus points: one for Twitter, one for Facebook, and one for email.

After Bonnaroo officially unveils its 2011 bill, we’ll add up all the correct guesses, along with the screen grabs, and then contact the person with the highest number of points. In the event of a tie, we’ll run a second, unique round, which will later be disclosed.

Ready? Let’s go…
