Snow Patrol to Play BUSHMILLS LIVE, Contest Now Open

posted by Marjana Jaidi on March 19, 2012

Bushmills has announced the first round of artists on the BUSHMILLS LIVE bill. Snow Patrol, originally from Northern Ireland, will headline the two-day event, an appropriate choice considering that the festival will be held in an Irish Whiskey Distillery. Foy Vance and Iaim Archer are also set to play. More acts will be announced as the festival approaches.

You can't buy tickets to the festival - the only way to get tickets is to win them through Bushmills. Tickets include festival entry, travel, accommodations, a VIP tour of the Old Bushmills Distillery, and the chance to make your own blend of Bushmills Irish Whiskey.

To enter the contest, head to the Bushmills Facebook Page, upload a picture of you and a friend, and tell Bushmills why the two of you deserve to go to the festival. Bushmills will choose 10 entries from each eligible country (Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Great Britain, Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Portugal, Republic of Ireland, and the United States), and put the photos up for a public vote. The pair of friends that get the most votes will win the tickets to BUSHMILLS LIVE.

Our advice? Be creative. This isn't a random drawing; competition will be stiff, and you want your picture to stand out. Good luck!
