Win tickets to see Bassnectar


UPDATE: Winners have been notified. Enjoy the show! Thanks for playing everybody.

ORIGINAL POST: As I’ve written about recently, the EDM scene is Fresno has really gotten a boost this year. Dubstep and electro have gone pop and consequently, local promoters are luring bigger names to Fresno and having them play at venues like Crest Theatre and Rainbow Ballroom.

The next of these big shows is Thursday’s gig with Bassnectar, who is playing Rainbow. The show was originally scheduled for Valdez Hall, but shifted venues recently. Tickets cost $31 in advance and you can get yours via EventBrite … or you can get some from us.

We’ve got 10 individual tickets to give away. To enter, just leave a comment below telling us what your DJ name would be — as you can tell, this current generation of electro DJs have some rather interesting monikers. Right, Bassnectar and Big Gigantic? So be creative.

Deadline to enter is 4 p.m. Wednesday. Winners will be chosen at random and notified via e-mail, so please leave a real e-mail address and please check it. No duplicate entries please. Official rules — and a taste of Thursday’s show — below.

Only readers who submit a comment on this post are eligible. Winners will be picked at random. Recipients will be notified by e-mail at the end of each giveaway period. No substitutions or transfer of winners/prizes. Prizes are not redeemable for cash. Some prizes may have due dates for redemption/use. Employees and immediate family of The Fresno Bee, and any/all of the participating giveaway sponsors, are not eligible to win. By accepting a giveaway, recipient consents to allow the use of his/her name and/or photograph for advertising or similar promotions without further compensation. Winner releases all sponsors of liability regarding use and enjoyment of the prizes. Tax liabilities and insurance, if any, are sole responsibility of the winner. No purchase necessary to win.
