Win Three-Day Passes to Shaky Knees and Shaky Beats

It’s festival season, and two of the biggest, baddest fests of the year take place in our own backyard: The rock-centric Shaky Knees Festival will take over Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park next weekend, May 13–15, with the EDM and hip hop-oriented Shaky Beats Festival to follow May 20–22. 

And wouldn’t you know? We’ve got two pairs of three-day wristbands to give away for each event.

So, here’s the deal: Comment below with which festival you want to attend, and which artist you’re most excited to see. Plus, give us one good reason why you—yes, YOU—should win a pair of wristbands.

We’ll choose four winners next Wednesday, May 11, at 11 a.m. Keep in mind that winners must pick up their wristbands in person at the Flagpole office (220 Prince Ave.) on Thursday, May 12 between 9 a.m.–5 p.m., so out-of-towners are out of luck.
