Blog Launch, Plus New Shows and Free Stuff

Welcome to the Wolf Trap blog. First, before we get into anything else, Happy National High Five Day and thanks to DCist for the reminder this morning about this excellent holiday. This Wolf Trap staff blog has been in the works for a little while and today seemed like a good day to officially launch it.

Visit Wolf Trap Live throughout the summer for a firsthand account of the nearly 100 shows coming to Wolf Trap this summer and other inside information from the Wolf Trap staff. We'll be blogging here all season long, providing music fans, bloggers, and journalists, with updates on what's happening at Wolf Trap, including things you might not normally read about in the news or see on our official Wolf Trap website.

Here's a little ticketing news, in case you've missed it, and then some contest information, including a brand new one taking place here on this blog...

Tickets to summer shows at Wolf Trap's Filene Center went on sale to the public on Saturday, April 1 and the season kicks-off on Friday, May 26 with A Prairie Home Companion. Also, on Sunday, May 28, you can enjoy fireworks and a FREE concert by the U.S. Marine Band--no tickets are needed for this show.

Four news shows were announced this past Monday: Fiona Apple on July 31; Guster and Ray LaMontagne on August 1; the Bob Marley Roots, Rock, Reggae Festival 2006 on August 27 with Ziggy Marley, Stephen Marley, Sinéad O'Connor with Sly & Robbie, and Ozomatli; and Chris Botti on September 6. Tickets to these shows go on sale this Saturday, April 22 at noon.

Now, for some contests...

Win A Summer Lawn Pass
Wolf Trap is currently running a contest, where one winner will get two lawn tickets to every show this summer. So, that's two tickets to almost 100 shows, that you can enjoy on our lawn, where you're allowed to bring your own food and drinks (even beer and wine). Enter the contest by sharing your favorite Wolf Trap memory at before May 1.

Win the Wolf Trap iMix and Other Free Music
All you have to do is post something about our new Wolf Trap blog on your own blog. Once you've done that, post a comment here for us, letting everyone know that you just blogged about us. We'll then pick our three favorites and give them the Wolf Trap Sounds of Summer 2006 iMix, as well as the iTunes album of their choice by one of the artists coming to Wolf Trap this summer. This contest ends next week, on Friday, May 5 at noon.
