I want to go, and gave a lengthy reason last year for why I should! I didn't manage to win or re-unite at the festival though, so I resubmit my entry with the same story as before!

My names caroline. A lover of music of 20 years. I live by the emotion of passion.. I was born with it inside me. I love everything about music! Music festivals in generally 100 have changed my out look on life for the better. It had gotten to a point that when I went to a show I was still not feeling 100% satisfied because i was not the one behind the deck sharing the music with others.. I decided 5 months ago that I wanted to pursue music as a career. I worked full time for 1 full year saving to travel, when I realized I needed to follow my dream and work my ass off to share my music with others, instead of traveling right away i decided to get a deck a laptop earphones and a midi controller I quit my job last month and have just been doing music full time. I had the pleasure of opening for lazy rich last month in my town Nanaimo. Alot of good things music has given me and I cant wait to share my music. As it is right now I cannot afford to go to basscoast I have made not money but music my priority. It would be a blessing if I was granted a ticket as I have a group of friends with a rad RV going down to basscoast then Sham! I have heard nothing but good things regarding basscoast and I think it would be the very best thing for me right now!!

Iv been a big lover of music my whole life. Festivals have changed my life. Never been to bass coast. My dream is to a successful respected producer eventually is my own label. Would love a ticket as my money has gone into my equipment!!

Matthew MacPhee says: I deserve bass coast! | Sat, 07/20/2013 - 02:40

I deserve a ticket to bass coast because I've worked my ass off this year and had to sacrifice missing lot of good shows to get ahead. I need that one summer festival to clear up my burning desire for live music so ill be good to grind it out for the next few months! Until the next great music festival comes along (pssst fun fun fun fest!)

Colin O'Driscoll says: Bass Coast!  | Sat, 07/20/2013 - 10:10

Hey,

I wouldn't say that I necessarily deserve a pass more than another person would but... A lot of my friends are going! and! I just got back to Vancouver from Montreal and I do not have a dollar in my pocket hahaa

Dear Ion Magazine,
I attended Bass Coast last year for the first time, and would personally rate it as the best festival I have ever been to! Perfect size, amazing vibes... the ultimate in BC culture and beyond! I have attended many electronic music festivals over the past seven years, but never have I had a better understanding of what goes into bringing these dreams into realization than after volunteering for a small project in the Okanagan Valley called 'Bushwacked'. This event found a permanent home in Beaverdell in 2012, and has been growing and evolving rapidly. Many, many people put countless hours and limitless effort towards making it happen, but one individual has really poured her entire soul into it like no other. My friend Carissa Bergevin, of Geminate Productions, has given everything to Bushwacked; months upon months of time and unimaginable amounts of money! She is a key player on the scene and it makes me sad that she is left unable to afford a ticket to Bass Coast. We had amazing times last year and nobody deserves to cut loose and have a blast at a festival more than her. If I win this ticket it will go straight to her and all will be right with the world. Either way I know her karma is strong and the party gods will not forsake her. Please take a minute to check out some footage from Bushwacked ( https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10151556474293661 ) and I think you will see the love for sure! Thank-you for this opportunity (:

peace n' love,
-Marklar B. Wunderful

Hey, I am just wondering how I enter to win tickets to Bass Coast. I went to my first music festival last month and had a blast and would love to check out how Bass Coast compares to the experience I had with Tall Tree.

Dave Ingram-Chadwick says: Bass Coast contest | Sat, 07/20/2013 - 21:22

I deserve the festival pass because my festival experience revolves around extending to the community as many smiles as possible :D

Spreading a little gladness.

Cam says: I do not deserve another | Mon, 07/22/2013 - 01:04

I do not deserve another ticket to bass coast as I already have mine. However a friend of mine needs to go to a transformational festival, he has been having a rough year and I believe it would help greatly in improving his life and view of life. So if I did end up with an extra pass it would not be for myself but rather for a friend.

Brad Reeves says: Want it!  | Mon, 07/22/2013 - 12:40

After watching the bloom series ep2 screening and some of the diverse acts brought to Kelowna by Footwerk events I am dying to do go to a transformational festival!
I have never been to one yet but have been a die hard fan of the genres covered at Basscoast, motion notion, shamb ext for years!

Currently i am in college for Audio engineering so this would be a prime opportunity for me to not only enjoy myself, but to learn as much as possible - not to mention i cant afford extra shows right now! Jen at footwerk has told me great things about Basscoast as well, i would be ecstatic if i got a ticket!

PS! I do the Footwerk Twitter feed, Always repping the basscoast retweets ;)

Sa Ra says: I would LOVE to buy a ticket, | Mon, 07/22/2013 - 13:31

I would LOVE to buy a ticket, but I can't go for the whole weekend cuz of work...and it's a bit spendy to pay the full ticket price for just for one night.

Tealy Briere says: Have never been to a music | Mon, 07/22/2013 - 14:03

Have never been to a music festival to date and have been told by many of friends that I'm missing out, considering I LOVE TO DANCE. Suppose you could say I am now ready to be introduced and transformed! It would be a blessing to be able to go, without having the limitation of costly expenses. Thank you for your time. :)

Sincerely,

Tealy.

Benjamin says: I don't think I deserve a | Mon, 07/22/2013 - 20:15

I don't think I deserve a ticket anymore than anyone who has posted, but I'd love to get a chance to go see world class dj's, participate with some of the finest yogi's, get a chance to see a vast variety of different artists, and to spend a weekend immersing myself in the bass music cultural scene.

Noray says: Spreading the love | Mon, 07/22/2013 - 20:34

To say I deserve something I would need to be brining something to the table and not my bear coat well not only. This would not only bring me but also more than a friend to re-unite with our many more friends to express the love to many others in return smiles and love all around. I haven't been but I hope that's basscoast. <3

Jay says: long time volunteers looking for a weekend off to dance! | Mon, 07/22/2013 - 20:59

Hey everyone,

I agree with the other post'ers that it's impossible to say that one person "deserves" to win passes more than anyone else, but I definitely feel like my partner and I put as much energy back into festivals as we do putting on shows and community events in our everyday lives.

We both support our local scene here on Coast Salish Territory in Victoria by organising events that are affordable, accessible and grow our community. For example, my partner puts on Bass nights aimed at creating a respectful, positive, dance-centred environment rather than charging cover and is always up to put on a show for new acts or bands from out of town with awesome sound out of his own pocket, without worrying about their "draw." I work with a handful of non-profits promoting food security and decolonisation events with local community centres and other social justice groups. Though we do our best to hustle, neither of these projects really pay the bills so a weekend at BC would be a huge treat.

It would be nice, for once, for each of us to go to a festival or show where we weren't busy volunteering on the door, doing sound, checking outhouses, or cooking breakfast for 100 people in the middle of the night (respect to the volunteers who make Bass Coast possible). We are also stoked about the lineup- from Humans to Goth Trad, it is so rare to see these type of acts at a camp-out event- which I'm sure is one reason why our friends have been giving BC such rave reviews. I also know there are so many community-minded folks in the BASS COAST family, and am incredibly thankful for events like this that create a shared environment rather than a crushed, for-profit space.

Finally, my partner and I come from really different places when it comes to picturing our "perfect concert experience-" it's hard to find a festival that serves the needs of both a urban-dwelling hip hop/dance producer and a farm country, camping fiend who both love to dance but we think Bass Coast may be our Valhalla. Thanks to the Bass Coast organisers and volunteers for all your hard work and ION for this fun opportunity. All the best to the other entrants!

I fell in love with the WestCoast Bass culture at my first Basscoast 2 years ago and this festival never ceased to amaze me since.
All my lovely Vancouver friends are going this year and I had planned so, too. Sadly, due to a non-diligent employer and Canadian Immigration politics I was without a work permit for several months this year. Hence I lack the funds to afford a ticket.
I would greatly appreciate getting a ticket from you and feel the vibe and the love of Basscoast again.
Peace and love

John Neat says: If I'm lucky enough to get a | Mon, 07/22/2013 - 22:52

If I'm lucky enough to get a ticket, it will be my first festival with my girlfriend - she is and avid bass coast fan, has been twice before, and was lucky enough to have a friend gift her a ticket since she is just as broke as me. I've never been to a festival with my baby before but have heard amazing stories about Bass Coast.

Not sure if that's deserving of a ticket, but that is the reason. It's for love, and to prove it, we'll take a picture of us kissing in front of every show that we attend and every dip that we take in the river, and we'll send them to you as a thank you gift for bringing us together at Bass Coast.

Music, love, and kisses... would be beautiful.

Peace.

Krista Thibodeau says: This is tough. I don't think | Tue, 07/23/2013 - 06:30

This is tough. I don't think I am any more deserving to win a ticket then the next person. However. If I won this ticket I would definitely be gifting it to a very special and deserving friend. Simone who is constantly giving back to the community someone who in a heartbeat would give the shirt off her own back to ensure your comfort. The basscoast community is none like any I have ever seen before. The culture is one of a kind and I would lie the opportunity to share it with my closest pals. Nothing beats getting weird on the dance floor under the stars! Nothing! It feels good to give back! Pay it forward!

Laura Armstrong says: Trust me.. you want me there! | Tue, 07/23/2013 - 06:34

Hey I'm Laura and I am a pretty cool cat. I've heard nothing but AMAZING things about Bass Coast and would be so thrilled if I were to win a free ticket. Between school and saving to move to Banff for an internship I find myself broke. I would be forever grateful and would show all the fellow bass coasters a heck of a time!

Michael Purves says: Bass Coast Contest | Tue, 07/23/2013 - 10:25

Hi :) name is Michael, currently staying in Calgary with my girlfriend. I think that everyone deserves a passage into bass coast. I have not attended , but have heard so much magical thing. My girl and I love to attend any festivals when we can, we really love the family community like feel of like minded individuals. Just being a free spirit to find that release through art , music, and dance. What would a free ticket mean to me? It would be huge, as my girl is sick in hospital right now also funds are low, this would be a nice surprise for her to enlighten her mood.
much love ,

Cro says: There are others more | Tue, 07/23/2013 - 10:46

There are others more deserving of a ticket than me, but if I won it would prompt me to get off my lazy, cynical, soon-to-be-middle-ages ass and put on a crazy costume and dance until my legs fall off - plus it would be my first Canadian festival

Chris says: Bass Coast and Me: More Than a Fling | Tue, 07/23/2013 - 13:37

I've decided that a significant chunk of my destiny involves travelling from festival to festival, offering my gifts, learning, and playing in abundance with all of you wonderful people!

I know that in a subtle, yet significant way, I make the world a better place, and that I can offer myself to help make Bass Coast an even better festival.

Let's make this flower bloom together. I would be honoured to receive a free ticket to Bass Coast.

Big Love!

Justin says: I need to let go of my anxiety and BE in the moment | Tue, 07/23/2013 - 13:43

The biggest challenge of being in your 20s these days is keeping yourself grounded in the face of constant uncertainty. It is summertime in Vancouver and I'd like nothing more than to be outside right now. Instead, I'm at my desk, taking a short daydream break from writing non-stop cover letters and filling in job applications. I've lived here for a year now, and while I have been lucky enough to find some work through a series of short-term contracts, I've been unemployed for 10 weeks and its starting to feel DRAINING. I don't want anyone to feel sorry for me, I'm willing to put in the work needed to succeed, but I sure would love to experience a west coast festival, leave everything behind, and feel that warmth of being connected with everyone who has converged in a single place for a single reason, just being in that moment, experiencing the reality that this is a beautiful world and a beautiful life, and in the end, everything is going to be OK! My mental health would really appreciate the opportunity.
Peace Love Unity and Respect - A cheezy cliche, I know, but thats what its all about!

You will not regret to pass a ticket to me !!

Oh btw.. i am flying over from Switzerland on the 2nd... so i could start my Canadatrip with a great festival!

I would love to be there at Bass Coast this year, especially since it's the year of the zebra. I have a zebra onesie, clip on fury ears with zebra print inside, and zebra striped lined festival hat but unfortunately, due to my financial circumstances, I cannot afford a ticket to Bass Coast. I work 3 part-time jobs (I work in a daycare and I have 2 nannying jobs) and I am still just making ends meet while living in the Vancouver area. This zebra would be ecstatic to find out that she won tickets to Bass Coast for of the year of the zebra :-)

Chelsee Elizabeth says: Nostalgic gratitude  | Thu, 07/25/2013 - 11:41

Imagine dancing in rain boots, a crochet shirt and skirt, underneath a torrential downpour.
Then imagine finding a beautiful shelter,
filled with nature’s gifts, new friends, and old souls.
Or perhaps a giant sun umbrella, frolicking in the heat, it’s protected guests sharing smiles and gifts,
with the whole human family.
Whatever the weather, this place brings people together.

Thank you Bass Coast, for your forest paradise. You deliver the opportunity for participants to engage their bodies, minds and souls. Your music is fresh and real. The workshops are intellectually stimulating and engaging. All while world class performance artists inspire and elevate group consciousness. Yoga and movement instruction are available to ground us back down. And what would we do without the the delicious and nourishing vendors?

THANK YOU to the divinely creative, passionate, and hardworking individuals who run this event.

I hope to return and continue on this journey!

Keegan McEvoy says: Celebrating One Year Anniversary at Bass Coast | Thu, 07/25/2013 - 12:34

Dear Ion Magazine,

Quite simply, Bass Coast is the best party I have ever had the privilege to attend. I had the pleasure of meeting the organizers of Bass Coast 3 years ago at the Mutek festival in Montreal and that conversation had me eager to check it out but any expectations I may have had coming in were exceeded. As a result attending the festival has been a must since the first year I attended. The space this event creates for people to fully engage with their most courageously gorgeous expressive selves and share their passion, joy and heart so openly has been a wonder to experience and partake in and has truly helped my personal growth (I have often said that dance is my practicing being the most paramount version of myself). However I did not realize how important Bass Coast would end up being in my life until last year's festival.

After meeting at a Daega Sound System on Salt Spring Island in Feb 2012, I started casually seeing someone. At the time she did not live in Vancouver and so the romance was slow in budding, with the opportunities to share space presenting themselves sparingly. We both knew we would be attending Bass Coast that summer and so we planned to spend time together. One thing we did entirely plan on was the full-blown blossoming of our love for each other which took place at the event. We have since moved in with one another and have been doing amazing work within the love of our relationship in healing old pain, unraveling stories and growing what it is we want to see in the world. I feel truly blessed.

We have made the decision to celebrate our anniversary on the weekend of Bass Coast this year and I am hoping for some help. My partner is going to be performing at this year's festival so her entry is covered - meaning I am paying my way into this event and I am trying to figure out how. Suffice to say, I am planning on attending Bass Coast no matter what. And I truly believe that their is no limit to people's deserving-ness - everyone that has posted deserved tickets. But I can't deny that winning a pass to the festival wouldn't make a huge difference for me. I work for two charitable organizations in Vancouver doing administrative and support work. For both positions, the summer is the downtime which means my income is seriously limited. As a result I have taken a habit of volunteering at various festivals and events over the summer (I have volunteered for 16 events the last 3 summers alone - including one have been involved with for 10 years) to ensure that I can take part and still pay rent, buy groceries etc. This summer saw the birth of my beautiful baby niece and my father's 60th birthday party and as such I made a costly road-trip home to see my family. In essence my means right now are quite limited. This however is an unfortunately unremarkable position - far too many of us have a hard limit set on possibility due to the uncompromising structure of the world we live in. Winning a festival pass would allow me to attend this event with the person I plan my life with and help further lift the limits of the work we are doing together.

My thanks to the organizers of Bass Coast for doing such essential work in helping compose a world full of possibility, expression, connection and bliss. Looking forward to moving with you all on the dance floor.

Love <3

I deserve to win the tickets because I have been a longtime aspiring music producer. This festival is a great example of the positive affect music has on people. The sense of community is so beautiful. I one day aspire to play a festival like this and on that path I would be so stoked to go and be a part of that community.

Diane says: Bass Coast is magic. I’ve | Thu, 07/25/2013 - 13:39

Bass Coast is magic. I’ve been twice before and every time, I’ve left in awe of the beauty in the people, the place, the art, the connections, the spontaneous magic and the outstanding musical experience. It is at Bass Coast where I feel at home in a culture I can contribute to, a place that sings to what I believe in - gathering in creativity and creative expression as a community - a global community connected through dance, art and nature all in sync. I wouldn’t call Bass Coast a spiritual event, but I can say that it feeds my soul.

This is the last year I plan to seek out a ticket in gift form, as I’m entering my fourth and final year in the nursing program. By this time next year, I’ll be working in my chosen field and hopefully by then I will gift someone a ticket. Yes, next year as my debt shrinks rather than grows, I will love to pay it forward and gift another with a ticket. For this year, being gifted will allow me to share my love of music offered with complete integrity, while I feed others with my grounded presence, my true love and faith in humanity and the ability to gather in peace and celebration of living well.

Pamela Wise says: I deserve a ticket because I am deserving!! | Thu, 07/25/2013 - 14:35

Last year I went with my hubbie in a motorhome, huge production, but had so much fun planning. Over the wkend, we had more connection, met so many great people, danced under the stars, that feeling carried me thru the winter, and it's high time for a serious top up. I will be in Kelowna that wkend, and would be over joyed to pop down to Merritt and experience BassCoast in it's new venue. Thanks and good luck all.

Charles Truman says: Basscoast fever | Thu, 07/25/2013 - 15:50

After soundwave festival I was taking the ferry back when I first heard about basscoast. Unfortunately I could not attend so I went to Merrit Mountain Electronic festival which I believe is where basscoast is held this year. It was a great location. As a DJ I have been dreaming of playing festivals for some time. Last year I worked really hard on producing an album and it never got finished due to some set backs. And this year has been one big set back. I lost my house and my car and my studio and my Job and most of my gear and my best friend. However I still plan to finish my album and play at basscoast soon. I also had one Shambalah ticket which I had to give up. This summer I have not been able to attend any festivals or events : ( I really want to go to basscoast because I love the music and the line up is all my favorites artists and a bunch of people in my community are playing a big part in the scene, such as Shah Djs. The simple fact is I am a DJ who needs to go to basscoast because I have to hear the new music so I can prepar for next years season. And to get the inspiration I need to finish my album. I want to be a Zebra

This summer I have not been able to attend any festivals or events : ( I really want to go to basscoast because I love the music and the line up is all my favorites artists and a bunch of people in my community are playing a big part in the scene, such as Shah Djs. The simple fact is I am a DJ who needs to go to basscoast because I have to hear the new music so I can prepar for next years season. And to get the inspiration I need to finish my album. I want to be a Zebra

After soundwave festival I was taking the ferry back when I first heard about basscoast. Unfortunately I could not attend so I went to Merrit Mountain Electronic festival which I believe is where basscoast is held this year. It was a great location. As a DJ I have been dreaming of playing festivals for some time. Last year I worked really hard on producing an album and it never got finished due to some set backs.

I deserve a ticket to Bass Coast, because music consumes my entire being and I want to experience and support the underground local and Canadian artists as well as my favorite heavy hitting headliners. I write for a couple Vancouver music sites and I'd love to document and share my love and experiences for Bass Coast. I'd also love to join my buds to bond for an entire weekend dedicated to music and visual arts. Lastly, I got laid off - so I really can't afford it! I'd love a shot at winning. Bless xx
