Wilco is putting the call out. They're seeking adventurous and talented fans to sing with the band on stage at this year's Solid Sound Festival (June 28-30 at MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA). 5-10 lucky fans will win the opportunity to have the live band karaoke experience of their dreams.
"Ever wish karaoke bars had more Wilco? Do they have any? I don’t really know. But I do know that they don’t have enough songs about existential dread and self-loathing. Sound fun? Please join us onstage so we can get Solid Sound 2019 started with some outsourced belters from the Wilco songbook. Let’s do this!" - Jeff Tweedy
To enter, fans must share a video of them performing the song they'd like to sing at Solid Sound on Instagram or YouTube with the hashtag #WilcoKaraoke. Winners will be contacted on June10th, and will win two 3-day passes to Solid Sound, a one-song performance onstage with Wilco as their backing band, a meet-and-greet and rehearsal with the band, and an official Solid Sound artist gift bag. This will take place on the Friday night of the festival. Friday single-day tickets are now sold out, but limited Sunday tickets still remain. They can be purchased at solidsoundfestival.com.
