If you’ve been lis­ten­ing to UMFM over the last few weeks, you know that once again we’ve teamed up with our friends at the Win­nipeg Folk Fes­ti­val to give you a chance to win a full fes­ti­val pass to this year’s fes­ti­val!

Our con­test this year is sim­ple — in your own words, we’re ask­ing you to paint a pic­ture for us of your sin­gle favorite folk fes­ti­val musi­cal mem­o­ry! Describe for us the best show you’ve seen at the fes­ti­val — whether it be main­stage, small stage, work­shop or solo and explain what made it stick out for you above the rest.

Also — since it’s a sweet prize worth work­ing for, tell us what three 2018 fes­ti­val artists you’re look­ing for­ward to see­ing most out at Bird’s Hill!

The best sto­ry as picked by our judges will win a week­end pass for this year’s fes­ti­val so that you can go make some more great musi­cal mem­o­ries this year! If you’ve left your tick­et buy­ing to the last minute, or for some rea­son are on the fence in attend­ing — now’s your chance!

Email your sub­mis­sions to contest@​umfm.​com no lat­er than July 3rd at 6PM. Tell your friends, neigh­bors and folks you meet on the street — this is a sweet prize!
