UPDATE: The contest is now closed. Thank you all so, so much for entering. A winner will be drawn at random and contacted in the coming days.
The jaw-drooping lineup of May’s Cruel World festival — Siouxsie! Iggy Pop! Love and Rockets! Echo & The Bunnymen! — was unveiled this week, and we’re thrilled to announce we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky Slicing Up Eyeballs reader, courtesy of promoter Goldenvoice.
The randomly selected winner of this contest will receive two (2) passes to see the 2023 edition of Cruel World on May 20 at Brookside at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. The festival also will feature performances by Billy Idol, Adam Ant, The Human League, Gary Numan, Modern English, Gang of Four, ABC and more.
(Tickets go on sale to the general public at 12 p.m. Pacific on Friday, Jan. 27, in case you don’t want to leave it to chance. Register for the on-sale and get full ticket info at cruelworldfest.com.)
