If there was an award for most organic music festival, Music on the Mountaintop would certainly be in the running.
Born in the minds of Appalachian State University students, what began as a class project has blossomed into a sustained annual event without losing focus on what its original goal was: environmental charity.
Since its inception in 2008, the event has grown exponentially each year, and Honest Tune is pleased to be a media partner with such a successful grassroots event.
With all of that said, we want you to be there as well and thanks to the folks at Music on the Mountaintop, we will be hosting a series of three ticket giveaways over the coming three weeks.
Please read all of the Q & A below. If after you have read it all, you still have questions, drop us an email.Â
Q: What is being given away?
A: Well two things actually. One lucky reader who follows the guidelines below will be randomly selected to win two tickets to the upcoming Music on the Mountaintop music festivalÂ that will take place in Boone, NC on 8/26 & 8/27/11.
Q: This is awesome! How do I enter?Â
A: Literally, this is the most important part. The process is so simple that it could be viewed as complicated…so here is a play-by-play of what you will need to do….
1) Log on to your Facebook account.
2) Write the following as your status… “I just entered to win 2 free tickets from Honest Tune Magazine to Music on the Mountaintop.”Â VERY IMPORTANT: You must “tag” Honest Tune Magazine‘s and Music on the Mountaintop‘s Facebook pages in your post. If you do not do this, we will not know that you have entered.Â
Q: Great! But how do I “tag” in a post?
A: In short, you must first “like” a page and when typing your post, place the “@” symbol directly in front of what you want to tag. In other words, your post should read “I just entered to win 2 free tickets from @Honest Tune Magazine to @Music on the Mountaintop.” If you do it correctly, once your status posts, both items will appear in blue text. For more on tagging, go here.
Q: How long do I have to enter?
A: The deadline for entry in 8/9/11 at 11:59PM CST.
Q: But you said there will be three contests. Does that mean that I can enter again if I don’t win this time?Â
A: Herein lies the beauty of entering early. If you do not win this time, your name will automatically go into the hat for the next drawings. Obviously odds will decrease with each passing draw, but your personal odds by entering now will be far better than your slacker friends who don’t get it together until the last day.
Q: Who is going to be playing?Â
A: For full lineup info, click here. But if you would rather not click, here is a brief run down… Sam Bush, 7 Walkers, Railroad Earth, Greensky Bluegrass,Â Â Infamous Stringdusters, Acoustic Syndicate and many more.
