Freedom Festival Essay Contest To Win

This year, South Africa celebrates 21 years of freedom and democracy. It has been 21 years since the shackles of Apartheid have been cast off. The scars of Apartheid may still be deep and they may still cause bitter resentment to run through the country, but sometimes it is better to celebrate the advances that have been made rather than focus on the negativity .

It is with that spirit in mind that Freedom Festival was born. Two one day festivals, in Pretoria and in Cape Town, that celebrate how far South Africa has come as a society. Five international bands, ten of South Africa’s very best bands and a host of EDM artists come together to form the line-up that will jubilantly celebrate the men and women who died to bring about democracy, and celebrate how far South Africa has come. Celebrate with Skillet, The Airborne Toxic Event, The Curious Incident, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Al Bairre, aKING, Shortstraw, and many more.

Mind Equals Blown has partnered with Freedom Festival to allow you the oppurtunity to win one of two sets of double tickets for each event. That would be one of two sets for Cape Town, and one of two sets for Pretoria. The competition is simple. All you have to do is fill out this form, and then patiently wait it out. The basic premise is: “What do you have to lose?” Not much right?
