Summer of 324 Bands!

X96 SUMMER OF 324-ish BANDS!

We’re not great at math, but we are great at music. Here’s the deal: One lucky winner will find themselves on six flights, spending nine nights in three different states, enjoying three of the Nation’s largest Music Festivals. If we’ve done the math correctly, that’s 324 BANDS (or something like that) filling your head with delight. Bands like Portugal The Man, Jack White, Chvrches, Walk The Moon, Arctic Monkeys, Lovely The Band, The Aces, Alice Merton and many more!

HERE’S THE IMPORTANT PART: Listen for the keyword at 8:00 am, 2:00 pm and 5:00 pm, then text the keyword to 33986. If you’re the 96th text with the correct keyword we’ll reward you with a pair of tickets to a concert here in Utah, AND be qualified for the Summer of 324 Bands!

Check out the list of tickets you’ll win just for qualifying:

           April 23rd – April 27th:    RISE AGAINST & AFI    |    September 16th    |    The Complex
           April 30th – May 4th:   A PERFECT CIRCLE    |    October 20th    |    Maverik Center
           May 7th – May 11th:    BONANZA CAMPOUT    |    June 22-24th    |    Rivers Edge, Heber
May 14th – May 18th:

If that wasn’t enough, we may take a few extra qualifiers while we’re out broadcasting live. Keep listening for where and when we’ll be in your area, then stop by and take a shot a qualifying for this outrageous number of bands!

We’d always had the concert hook up, but this time, we’re serious!
