Name that festival

Some of the most creative people I know are regulars here at Six String Sanctuary. That's why I'm so excited to share information about a contest that could bring you here for Milwaukee's premier summer event.

Summerfest's planners have added an "alternative and modern rock" two-day festival June 4-5, and they're going to let us decide what to name it. The payoff?

-- Roundtrip airfare for two
-- Hotel accommodations in Milwaukee, June 4-5
-- Festival tickets
-- Assigned parking space for the festival
-- VIP hospitality passes
-- Backstage passes and Meet & Greets for select shows with Artists’ approval
-- A themed profile on and the festival’s web site
-- Signed merchandise from the bands playing at the event

Seriously, Milwaukee in June is a very cool place to be. No reason why one of you shouldn't win this thing, so check out the details at I know you'll remember me if you win.


  1. Dang, you didn't tell us we had to do the logo, too!

    But here ya go:

    The Cheese-Head Bangers Ball

  2. After that, I got nothing ... brilliant.

    Also, the logo thing.

  3. Ok, let's not worry about the logo. Shoot me an idea and I'll help with the visual component. I was thinking of a bird on a guitar headstock. Wait -- that's been taken! Seriously, you are some of the most clever headline writers in the world. This is no different, except that you actually have more than a minute to think about it. I want the winner AND runner-up to come from SSS land. Get cracking!
