Announcement: ACL Weekend Two Ticket Giveaway Contest Winner


It’s not too much of a surprise to see that the ACL giveaway AT&T Uverse made happen has been our most popular contest yet. Ovrld fans came out in droves to tell us who they were most eager to see (the winner by a wide margin is Outkast, by the way) and we were sad that we could only pick one of you, since so many people shared hopeful ACL stories and wishes with us.

One person just moved away from Austin and couldn’t justify both plane tickets AND an ACL pass. And then there was a girl who convinced several of her friends to beg us to pick her as the winner so that she could finally see her idol Lana del Rey in person. But our winner is Hillary Berquist, who left us this heartwarming comment:

“My husband and I are dying to see Outkast and Eminem! We did not buy tickets this year after finding out we’re pregnant with our first and deciding we needed to save the money…free passes would be amazing (and we could get baby its very first ACL Festival shirt for its first ACL Festival of hopefully many more!)”

Thanks to all of you for participating, and keep an eye on the site for more giveaways soon (or come win Fun Fun Fun Fest passes at our combo trivia and karaoke event at the North Door next Wednesday!). And thanks again to AT&T Uverse for providing the passes and sending us out to ACL!
