Industrial-music festival Cold Waves is hitting three cities — New York, Chicago and Los Angeles — in the coming month with a lineup topped by Skinny Puppy spinoff ohGr, and we’ve got multi-day passes and VIP tickets to award lucky Slicing Up Eyeballs readers.
Other acts on the bills: Front Line Assembly, Meat Beat Manifesto, Die Krupps, Lead Into Gold and more.
We’re giving away one “All Event” pass for Cold Waves in each of the three cities, meaning you and a guest will get you into the kick-off party the night before the festival, and the three nights of music. We’re also giving away a pair of VIP tickets to one night each at each Cold Waves event. Those VIP tickets include an artist meet-and-greet, access to a special VIP viewing area, a compilation CD, a poster and a laminate.
Full details below — and see the full lineups at Cold Waves’ website, as they vary from city to city.
TO ENTER: In the comments section below, name which city — New York, L.A. or Chicago — you’d like to attend. Once divvied up by city, three grand-prize winners will be randomly selected to each win one of the “All Event” passes to their preferred Cold Waves city. Three runners-up will each get one of the one-night VIP tickets. If for any reason you’re unable to comment, please email your entry to email@example.com with the subject line “COLD WAVES.”
RULES: We’ll take entries until 5 p.m. Eastern on Friday, Sept. 7. After that point, we’ll select the six winners at random and they will be notified via their provided e-mail addresses. Important: If the winners do not reply to their notification email within 48 hours, new winners will be drawn. One entry per person.
Good luck, and godspeed.
