This summer was going to be it — the summer when we put our money where our mouth is and hit the festival circuit. But, a couple of lavish brunches and a few summer Fridays later, Coachella and Pitchfork are already in the rearview. That said, we're no quitters. And, in our humble opinion, the crème de la crème of tune fests is yet to come: Austin City Limits Music Festival. So, we're teaming up with Kendall-Jackson AVANT® (a new style of wine, perfect to enjoy after a day of jamming) to give away two tickets to the ACL Festival, $2,000, and what's bound to be a great story.
Here are the deets: One winner will score two free tickets to the first weekend of the Austin festival (October 3 to October 5), plus $2K to arrive in style. This year's lineup features heavyweights like Beck, Eminem, and Pearl Jam, along with up-and-comers like Sam Smith and Johnnyswim. And, in case you haven't heard, Austin is chock-full of amazing local eats (it's food-truck central) and cultural hotspots (think Sixth Street bars and art galleries) to explore between sets.
