Next weekend, May 5–7, Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park will host the second annual Shaky Beats Festival, a three-day pop and EDM blowout featuring The Chainsmokers, Griz, Kaskade, Flosstradamus, Girl Talk, and many others. 

The following weekend, May 12–14, the same location will see the fifth incarnation of the Shaky Knees Festival, Shaky Beats’ rock-oriented counterpart, where LCD Soundsystem, Phoenix, the XX, Ryan Adams, The Shins, Nick Murphy and tons of others will perform.

If you’ve been jonesing for a fest fix but are short on scrilla, you just might be in luck, because Flagpole‘s got three three-day passes for each festival to give away.

To enter our contest, comment below with which of the two festivals you want to attend; which artist you’re most pumped to see; and, finally, three good reasons you deserve to go for free. Get creative! We’ll choose three Shaky Beats winners Monday, May 1, and three Shaky Knees winners Friday, May 5.

Good luck!
