      Not trolling but....genre's and classifications just don't exist anymore huh? The reggae day is almost literal (argument for dancehalls' difference to reggae is in play)...jazz day (not so much); is that why it's called jam day as well? Haha...Anyjawn have a great time anyone who gets to go, line up is top quality.

      Would enjoy a day of great music, art and food with the missus. Watching some Ziggy, while eating a plate of jerk chicken and platanos under the southern california sun. Thanks for the opportunity.

      I just moved to LA and am broke! I can't afford to go out right now so these tickets would be the exact right thing at the exact right time!

      Since I can't afford to go to UCLA for school I figured this was the next best thing. Please pick me for your contest and I will advertise anything you want me to advertise. I will be your personal whore for the day. I deserve this much more than anybody that can afford attending this great university. These economic times are rough and it'll only show compassion on your part if you happen to choose someone that makes under 10K a year. I love you santa

      I dont care if I gain 10 lbs from eating good food.
      I dont care if I burn my finger when they tell me to put my lighter in the air.
      I dont care if i spend a ton of money on arts and crafts
      I dont care what people think if im smiling all the time
      I dont care whos watching when im groovin because im gonna groove like no ones watching.

      and if I dont get picked, I dont care, beause im gonna try my best to go and do all the above.

      Eat. Love. Reggae.

      Most people are talking about being broke. Well I have a BROKEN FOOT, and it's been cutting into both my biz and social life. I've been a shut in for over two weeks and had to swallow my Prince tickets and give up my chance to see Ziggy at last week's Heal the Bay event, BUT now I'm getting stronger and I'm dying to crutch my way into the hot jams, beats and eats! Great music and good vibes with cool people would be an amazing break from my recent heartache/boredom. Last year was the first time we brought the twins out for the show ( https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=4034614027981&set=t.1113397631 ) and we'd love to do it again. Please give me the pickup I need <3

      I deserve these tickets because I just finished out my first year of law school. My first year was very tough, I lost my 19 year old brother to a fatal car accident, my grandmother passed from cancer, and my 22 year old brother was sent to prison for a DUI conviction. All this while in school, took extra effort for me to study and stay focus with so much loss around me. But I kept at it and passed at the top of my class. I am not a quitter, I know my brother and my grandmother would never want me to have taken a break, when others thought I should. My 2nd year is starting on Tuesday, May 28th and winning tickets to the reggae fest would be the perfect way to kick off my summer quarter in school. I have never been to the reggae fest and I love Santigold. I would buy my own tickets but budget is so tight as I pay part of my own tuition and books for school. Please pick me make my summer awesome!!

      I just got back a week ago from S. Korea where I've been living for over 2.5 years. Although there are some big concerts here and there, it was extremely rare for me to hear live reggae and you can imagine as a reggae fan how painful it was to go so long without it. Also my best friend with his two-year old baby who I have yet to met will be there and it would be awesome to reunite with him and meet his son (also my godson) for the first time while listening to some legendary artists! It'll be like a homecoming party for me loaded with phenomenal music and good Cali vibes! Even if I don't know win, I'm so happy that I'm back home in L.A. where i'm blessed with events and chances such as this.
