Absolute Michigan's Festival Summer

From the north country comes this great opportunity:

TRAVERSE CITY, MICHIGAN - All summer long, Absolute Michigan ( is giving away free tickets to 23+ Michigan festivals and events. With passes to everything from big festivals including Electric Forest, Common Ground and Maker Faire Detroit to more intimate events like Hiawatha and Dunegrass, Festival Summer is a showcase of the incredible diversity and range of events that Michigan offers.

Absolute Michigan publisher Andrew McFarlane explains, “Absolute Michigan is dedicated to highlighting what’s working in Michigan, and there’s no question that one of Michigan’s strengths is the diversity and fun that our events offer. We’ve tried to make it really easy for folks to win - just sign up for our email list and we’ll tell you what’s up in the Great Lakes State every week and if you’re the next winner. It’s that easy!”

“I think what Absolute Michigan is doing is great,” says Don Kermeen of the Porcupine Mountain Music Festival. “The U.P. has been hit as hard as anyone by Michigan’s economic troubles, but I think that music is a unifying and healthy thing that allows us to escape from life, relax and refresh so we can face our challenges.”

In addition to giveaways all summer long, a number of the event partners are going the extra mile to provide one lucky winner with 2 tickets to these fantastic Michigan festivals!

I would so love to get back up to the Porcupines and spend a week up there... maybe my friend Andy will front me an all-expenses paid trip for photos...


It was worth a try. :-) Guess I'll have to go enter the contest...
