Enter To Win Our 2018 Homegrown Music & Arts Festival Baller Pack And Not Only Will You Get VIP Treatment At The Fest, But You’ll Get To Crash At The Re-Opened Statler Hotel After.

Real quick, let me drop this unvarnished truth bomb on anyone who clicks on this post: Y’all really need to buy some tickets to the ninth annual Homegrown Music & Arts Festival, which is this year set to take place at Main Street Garden Park in Downtown Dallas on Saturday, May 12.

Like, yesterday.

Why? Well, because, year in and year out, the festival makes for one of our favorite days of the year in North Texas, that’s why. And also because this year’s lineup of Explosions In the Sky, The Black Angels, Alvvays, Roky Erickson, Ume, [Daryl], Vodi, Medicine Man Revival, Duell, Acid Carousel and Sad Cops is objectively great.

And because, sure, as we learned this week, the organizers really need you to scoop up some tickets if they are to not cancel this thing due to low advance ticket sales, thus jeopardizing the future of this truly awesome annual Dallas tradition. Update: After a scare, the festival is back up to 100 percent on thanks to the support of the community, organizers now say.

Either way: If you give a damn about the vibrancy of Downtown Dallas, about the Dallas music scene and/or about the spirit of small business ownership, you should’ve stopped reading this post and made your damn purchase already.

Then, once you’ve done that, you should totally enter for the chance to win our special Homegrown Fest edition of our Central Track Baller Pack giveaway.

It’s a pretty sweet deal. Here’s what’s up for grabs in it:

  • Two VIP passes to the 2018 Homegrown Music & Arts Festival. Not only will you get to check out this year’s kickass lineup, but you’ll be able to do so with special access to VIP hangout areas and bathrooms. Plus, you’ll be able to see over the masses because you’ll have access to an elevated viewing platform.
  • A free Homegrown 2018 T-shirt. Because, hey, it’s important to look the part.
  • Two free drink tickets. Y’know, just to make sure you get the part started properly.
  • A room for two at The Statler on the night of the event. Instead of worrying about overdoing it at this year’s fest and having to drunkenly figure out how to make your way home at the end of a long day, you can just hop across the street and spend the night in a free room at the recently re-opened (and beautifully restored) Statler Hotel. A hotel that’s basically on the premises of the party? That’s not just festing — that’s level-up festing.
  • Lifetime VIP at both Homegrown and the Old 97’s County Fair. Yeah, you read that right. If you win this contest, you’re going to get VIP access for life to both Homegrown and its organizers’ sister project, the Old 97’s County Fair. This is a steal even for the $999 rate that it’s being sold at online right now, let alone as part of this package.

Sounds rad, right? We agree.

But what if you win and you already bought those general admission tickets? Ah, see, that’s no problem at all: Just give those tickets to some friends, and open their eyes to the greatness that is Homegrown. That’s what we call a win-win, folks.

How can you go about winning, though? Well, get this: Entering our contest is free. It’s also super easy. All you have to do is fill out the form below and by 10 p.m. on Thursday, May 10, which is our deadline for entering the contest and the point at which we’ll pick the Homegrown Fest 2018 Baller Pack winner from the entrants pool at random.
