Waka Winter Classic 2013

The Wakarusa Music Festival has announced the details for its 2013 Waka Winter Classic. The event will once again make its way across the South and Midwest where several bands will compete in a talent showcase each night. The fans in attendance will decide which group is best, and the winner will receive an invitation to play Wakarusa 2013, as well as a cash prize on the night of the show. The Waka Winter Classic will kick off at Cervantes’ Other Side in Denver on January 10 before making its way through a number of cities before a final stop at the New Earth Music Hall in Athens, GA on February 16. The deadline to sign up is different for each stop, so make sure to check out their website soon if you’re thinking about entering the competition.

Tulsa, OK was rigged too. Dude taking tickets for votes would suggest who to vote for, i.e. “i want to vote for band A.” and he would say, “You sure you don’t want to vote for band B?” and so on, or he would pocket vote tickets. All of these bands work really hard and are super excited at the opportunity to make it to Wakarusa, no one deserves any more advantage than the other. Come on, guys, the least you could do is make it professional. I have nothing against the band that won, just the Waka reps for their unprofessional conduct.
