VAVA VOOM – GUESS THE TOUR
Very soon we’ll be announcing the dates for our Vava Voom Spring Tour 2012, but first we’re giving you a chance to guess what cities we’ll be visiting and win tickets in the process, with a grand prize VIP trip to our massive Bass Center V event, including airfare and accommodation.
The contest is now live! The bass head who can most accurately predict the exact routing for the Spring Tour 2012 will win the grand prize. (Grand prize open to entrants in USA aged 18+ only.) Other free tickets and runners up prizes available – more info on the contest page.
We’ve been posting clues on our site and social networks, and have gathered these cryptic tidbits from across the Bassnectar Community so you can piece some of the puzzle together before you enter. Check them out below.
THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. THANKS FOR ALL YOUR ENTRIES – CHECK YOUR INBOX TO SEE IF YOU WON TICKETS!
Clue #1 – The tour kicks off on 4/11/12 with a visit to an Indiana city where Lorin once performed alongside a Russian cohort who remixed ‘Boombox’…
Clue #2 – Lorin held two jobs in the town we are visiting on 05/03/12: teaching music programs at Juvenile Hall, and dressing up as Barney The Purple Dinosaur as a birthday party entertainer.
Clue #3 -Bass Center V 4/20/12 – not far from Bass Island. MD DE NJ will be close to hand. Friends in CT + MA have further to travel…
Clue #4 – On 04/26/11 we’re returning to the town where Bassnectar played the first, last, and only “Girls Get In Free” show where only guys were charged admission (also one of the last shows where Lorin invited the entire party up on stage, back before that was “the thing to do”, and enjoyed having his computer shut down repeatedly by spilt beer and drunken enthusiasts.)
Clue #5 – Our target city on 04/18/12 was the first to sell out in advance last year when the Spring 2011 dates were announced”
Clue #6 – On 04/13/12 we return to the city where in 2011 we gave away event tickets to volunteers to help promote improvements in Public Education.
Clue #7 – 04/28/12 – sounds like Burningman.
Clue #8 – ‘What success I achieved in the theater is due to the fact that I have always worked just as hard when there were ten people in the house as when there were thousands.’ On 4/25/11 we’ll be visiting the birthplace of the famous musician whose quote is central to the Bassnectar ethos…
Clue #9 – On 05/05/12 we’ll be playing the only city where Bassnectar has performed live with a Gamelan Orchestra.
Clue #10 – The first Saturday of the tour lands us in a city that once hosted a festival attended by 27 million revelers. Lorin first played here at an underground party in an abandoned warehouse, circa 2002.”
Clue #11 – As promised, we return to this Southeast city 4/29/12, where the roar of ‘school spirit’ erupted during our last show there
Clue 12# – Often credited as the birthplace of an entire musical genre, the city we are coming to on 05/12/12 is a bridge between two fanatic territories of bass heads. During Lorin’s first set here, the promoters were upset when he jokingly closed with Salt N Peppa’s “Push It”.
