YANGAROO, powered by DMDS: A proud sponsor of NXNE 2015

NXNE 2015 is taking place in Toronto, ON, Canada between June 17th and 21st, 2015. In case you don't know what's happening in NXNE, it's an awesome music festival that focuses on live music. If you want to know more, here are other details.

And in case you love music festivals as much as we do, you should stay tuned with us because we'll be giving away 4 Clubland Wristbands & 3 Platinum Badges. In order to win these precious wristbands and badges, we'll be asking YANGAROO trivia questions, plus a Like/Follow and a Retweet/Share.

Details & rules:

In order to participate and win, you must be a DMDS "follower" – it means you've Liked our Facebook page, or you're following us on Twitter or Instagram (wherever you participate) – and have shared/re-tweeted at least one of our posts.

First correct answer will get the announced prize per post; participants can only participate once – 1 reply/post per entry; tickers are valid for 19+; passes only cover value of entry; winners cannot be repeated/same person; winners will have to pick up wristbands/badges at our Toronto office; winners will be asked to send a private message via the channel they participate providing their name and contact information; winners will be asked to provide a valid ID, answer a mathematical question, and pose for a picture holding the wristbands/badges (by doing this, winners fully authorize YANGAROO DMDS to post/use their pictures in the company websites and social media channels); other conditions might apply.
