Win Full-Festival Passes To 12 Days Of Music In A Giant Maze!By Shriya Manian
Remember that movie where the girl wishes her baby brother away to a Goblin King and she won’t get him back unless she completes his crazy labyrinth? Or the time that Harry kid had to run around a bewitched maze looking for a silver cup that ended up being a port key to Voldemort? Or Barbarella? Jane Fonda scantily clad and trapped in a rocky maze? How could you forget.
So, here’s the deal. We obviously love music, and if you’re here, you probably do too. But we also love mazes. Have you ever listened to music inside a giant maze? Well, we’ve got three full-festival passes to the You Are Here Festival, an international music festival entirely situated in—you guessed it—a big fucking maze. Sam Hillmer and Laura Paris, of the duo Trouble, have created a this gigantic maze out of two-by-fours and electrical cable walls, and inside the maze, festival-goers will experience projections, sound pieces, video games, sculptures, performances, and of course, the maze itself. The festival starts this Thursday in Brooklyn and will continue for 12 days at the Secret Project Robot Gallery in Bushwick. You can learn more about the details in this here interview we conducted.
So guess what: we've got three full-festival passes that we want you to have. How do you get your hands on them? It's almost too easy - just click here, and your computer will email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "You Are Here Festival." Then just wait around and you'll probably win.
The first night of the festival features Miho Hatori's New Optimism, Bachanalia, Ann Liv Young, a DJ set from JG Thirwell, and festival organizer Sam Hillmer's own band, Zs. If you need any more convincing, here's a video of Zs hitting Public Assembly for the Panopticon 360.
Oh and also! On July 28th, Kel Valhaal, the new project from Hunter Hunt-Hendrix (from the transcendent black metal act Liturgy), will be part of the soundtrack to you roaming about the gallery. Here's an exclusive stream of their new track, "Vitriol":
The gallery is open from 2-8pm and the shows start at 8pm every Thursday and Friday, beginning this Thursday, the 12th. Take a look at the full schedule with all the artists here. This is not something you want to miss.
