First City Festival

As previously announced, the First City Festival will take place in Monterey on August 24th and 25th. Not only will this inaugural festival take place in California’s “first city,” but it will feature a huge list of notable bands: Modest Mouse and Passion Pit supported by Beach House, Toro y Moi, Deerhunter, Animal Collective side project Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks (in its first West Coast show), and so many more. Tickets are on sale via the First City Festival website!

We have a pair of tickets to give away to the 2013 First City Festival! For your chance to win, email with “First City Festival” in the subject line and your full name in the body of the email. The contest closes Wednesday, June 26th July 17th at 12pm PDT. The winner will be chosen at random and will be awarded one pair of tickets unless otherwise noted.
