Win a pair of weekend passes to the Nelsonville Music Festival

Athens boys Southeast Engine (who may or may not be sponsored by Pepsi)

We’re less than two weeks away from the Nelsonville Music Festival, May 14-16 at Robbins Crossing on the campus of Hocking College. We’ve given the fest lots of coverage already, but if you missed it, here are a few of the big names coming to southeast Ohio: Loretta Lynn, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, The Swell Season, Billy Joe Shaver, Man Man, Todd Snider & Great American Taxi, Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears, Michael Hurley… Full list and tickets here.

To win a pair of tickets for the weekend, send an email to with the subject FULL NELSON! We’ll pick a winner early next week so you can make travel arrangements and/or brag to your friends.

Lots of Ohio representation here, too — several Athens artists (like Southeast Engine, above), plus Columbus bands The Spikedrivers, Alwood Sisters, Lydia Loveless, Moon High, Bird & Flower and possibly others I’m overlooking.
