The KahBang Festival is honored to announce the return of the KahBang Hearts The Troops program. Sponsored by UNO Chicago Grill, all active U.S. Military personnel will receive one free pass to the KahBang Festival, August 8-11, 2013 on the Bangor Waterfront. In addition to the free pass, sponsor UNO Chicago Grill is offering 10% off meals at the UNO Bangor location with a U.S. Military I.D. from now through the KahBang Festival.“This is our fourth year in making Hearts the Troops a possibility. It's something we feel passionate about and it's amazingly satisfying to be able to give even a small thank you to the women and men in service. Seeing them at the front gate every year and having them thank us for this gesture is so heartwarming, as I truly believe that we should be thanking them for their service every day. We want to show our appreciation and let them experience a weekend of music, art, and film. Hearts the Troops is just a small gesture in what they deserve. -Tim Lo, KahBang Executive DirectorTo receive a Festival pass, active U.S. Military personnel must provide a U.S. Military ID and Orders papers to the KahBang Box Office on Friday August 9th or Saturday August 10th, 2013. The Festival pass grants access to the Main Stage, Dance Stage, and Campsite Stage as well as the free film screenings, art galleries, and other select stages.“UNOs appreciates all of our service men and women, as a company we donate thousands of pizzas oversees from our “Pizza for Patriots” program. Since the Bangor area has rich military ties, UNO Bangor wanted to give back locally. KahBang Hearts The Troops was the perfect way for us to give back to military personnel and say “Thanks”. Donating the tickets and giving 10% off at UNO Bangor discount is a small token of appreciation for those serving our country.” -Ron Cross, General Manager UNO BangorIn its fifth year, the KahBang Festival is opening up most of the Festival Grounds to the general public. Everyone is encouraged to attend the free kick off concert, films, art galleries, food and craft vendors, and select stages during the Festival’s 3 day run.
