rogers picnic 2008 lineup

Contest: Win Tickets to The Rogers Picnic 2008

The Rogers Picnic, the one day outdoor music showcase that rocked Fort York last summer is BACK. This year's lineup is still a secret but will be announced tomorrow.

I know what you're thinking... why should you enter a contest for a concert that hasn't yet been announced? The answer is simple. If you win, tomorrow brings news very much relevant to what you'll be doing on July 20th. All I can say is that once again the lineup is stacked, and it's sure to draw a diverse, summer-fun-loving crowd.

Update (April 23rd):
Lineup is announced! CITY AND COLOUR, CAT POWER, TOKYO POLICE CLUB, CHROMEO, ANIMAL COLLECTIVE, DIZZEE RASCAL, BORN RUFFIANS, THE CARPS

blogTO will be at this hot ticket and we also have a couple of pairs of tickets to give away to two lucky readers. Continue reading for contest entry details...

In the spirit of oddness (and test our server's ability to cope with minor chaos), let's try something new here to determine winners...

1. The person who places the 20th comment below will win a pair of tickets. No limit on the number of comments you can post. Use a valid email address on the form so we can contact you if you win.

2. The person who places the 40th comment below will win the second pair of tickets. No limit on the number of comments you can post. Use a valid email address so we can contact you if you win.

Any given commenter can only win one pair. In the unlikely event that the same person places both the 20th AND 40th comments, an announcement will be made to that effect, and one pair will be returned to the contest and further instructions will be provided.

If you don't win and want to go, watch for ticket sales to start on April 26th, at 10am (details below). Full lineup will be announced here tomorrow.
