***NOTE: THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. THANKS TO ALL THAT ENTERED!
Following their breakout first year as Toronto’s only camping and music summer festival Camp Wavelength will be gracing Toronto Island again this August 19th – 21st.
The follow up to 2015’s celebration of art, music, community and beach fun will go off the deep end, once again embracing the DIY spirit that makes Wavelength, and Toronto, so alluring. With a major focus on local, innovative, and community-run culture, Camp Wavelength invites you to immerse yourself in the escapism of Toronto Island for a weekend of summer-camp fun.
Last Gang’s OPERATORS are playing Camp Wavelength on Friday, August 19 at 9pm.
To get you set for the show, we’re giving TWO lucky winners each ONE PAIR of weekend passes to the festival (note: does not include camping), and each winner gets ONE LP copy each of Operators’ EP1 and Blue Wave.
All you have to do is go to Last Gang’s Facebook page and comment with your favorite Operators song for your chance to win. We’ll randomly choose TWO winners on Monday, August 15th and make the prize packs available for pickup at Last Gang’s office:
134 Peter St, Suite 700
