Last year at Summer Camp Music Festival we held the first Golden Ticket event, another curveball offering from team UM. Given the ferocity with which you snapped up a few hundred golden ticket packages, we figured we'd roll out round two this year.
What is the Golden Ticket you ask? It's your chance to win free tickets for you and a friend to every UM show for a year*. Or ride shotgun for a golf cart tour of Summer Camp with Stasik. Perhaps you'll snag the golden ticket that has Joel prank calling your buddy. Maybe you'll go home with 1 of 100 Death By Stereo deluxe packages included in this year's offering! At a minimum, you'll take home more merch than you paid for. It's like playing the lottery but you're a guaranteed winner.
This year we'll be offering 500 DBS tote bags filled with a myriad of supplies from UM HQ. Every bag's contents will remain a mystery until you have it in your hands. But the options are endless. We're hiding 20 Golden Tickets in this year's loot alongside a whole host of new prizes. Along with attending every Umphrey's show for a year, a partial list of items that you could find residing in your bag this year also includes: Death By Stereo Deluxe Packages (1 in 5 wins!), various UM posters, T-shirts, UMLives, download cards, mouse pads, puzzles, DBS demo cassettes, CDs, Vinyl, stickers, and more. Golden Ticket winnings include: photo pass access to the pit for Summer Camp, private meet 'n greet for you +3, 2 tickets to the 5 shows of your choosing*, play the set break music of your choice at a UM show, instant photo shoot with Stasik, tickets to every Summer Camp late night show and the list goes on.
Like last year, we'll be donating a portion of the proceeds to one of Summer Camp's many not-for-profit charities. This year proceeds will benefit Food Patriots, a charity designed to educate the next generation about the importance of healthy, sustainable eating. So head over to the Soulshine Tent after moe.'s set on Friday and join us for the shenanigans. You can't lose.
