Contest – Northeast Ohio Metal Fans – Win A Set Of Weekend Passes To The INKarceration Festival!

If you’re in the Cleveland, Pittsburgh, PA, Canton, Youngstown, Akron, Columbus Ohio area – you likely are already aware of the amazing INKarceration Festival that is hitting the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield Ohio on during the weekend of July 12th – 14th.

The festival promoters have been awesome enough to offer up a pair of field passes for the entire event – so you and a friend can go and experience the entire festival – on the house! Let’s make it perfectly clear – this is only good for access to the festival – you’ve got to find your own way there, where you sleep and eat is your problem. The contest gets you two passes to the weekend festival – nothing more, nothing less.

Only have one set – and the passes will be sent to you electronically, should you be lucky enough to win them. So, let’s give these bad boys away – and I’m going to make it so easy – it’s silly. Either email me at or – reply to this posting on Facebook with your favorite band from the amazing line up above and – the song you most want to hear them play live – that’s it – I get that email or see your comment on Facebook and – you’re in the running for the passes. The Facebook posting would be preferred because – I want a gang of us to be able to rock out to some of everyone’s favorite songs but – if you don’t use Facebook – I still want you to be able to have a shot at these passes.

You’ve got till Monday, July 3rd to stake a claim. I’ll choose the winner at 5 PM on that day – you will be notified if you win so – make sure to keep your eyes open on that Monday cause I’ll need some info from you to get the winnings in your hot little hands.

All right – that’s it! Have at it rockers. Good Luck to you all and if you win – I’ll meet you at the beer truck!
