So you read our review of Chicago’s Dave Matthews Band Caravan and noted that it was really missing two things: a decent venue, and you. When DMB and a collection of hand-picked musicians come rolling into New York next weekend, they’ll already have one of those problems solved, as the much-loved and festival-tested Governors Island will be the Caravan’s Big Apple home. Now CoS and Jeep® have teamed up to solve that second hiccup by giving one reader a pair of three-day passes to the NYC event.
The 2011 Jeep® Compass is the official automotive sponsor of the DMB Caravan, and they’ve been bringing their Jeep Journey to Stardom experience along to each stop. From August 26th through the 28th, that means they’ll be joining DMB, their fellow three-lettered jammy rockers O.A.R and MOE., Dispatch, The Roots, Gogol Bordello, David Wax Museum, and many more at Governors Island.
Want to be there too? Here’s how to do it:
– Either send us a Tweet or a Wall-Post (or both!) and tell us your favorite Dave Matthews Band memory. In keeping with the Jeep® Compass theme, don’t forget to tell us where on the map you were when the memory was formed.
– Find out more information about the Dave Matthews Band Caravan, the Compass Emerging Artists program featuring Alberta Cross and Machine Gun Kelly, and register to win daily prizes by visiting the Jeep® Facebook page or following them @Jeep.
The lucky winner will receive two three-day passes to the New York City Caravan plus two $100 Amex gift cards to unload at the festival thanks to Jeep® Compass. We’ll announce the winner on Monday, August 22nd. So if you’re a true DMB Patriot and want the Liberty of a free festival, Wrangle up some friends and start posting for the chance at a Grand, um, experience. Yeah, we’re good.
