VIA has been building up a massive festival tease all year. One monthly VIA Presents show after another has formed a steamroll of anticipation for what kind of stops they’re going to pull for festival number two.
Yesterday, they finally released some sort of pressure valve release, although, it kind of just preps you for more waiting and game-playing. Game-playing because the lineup will be released in the form of a game of hangman. This hangman challenge however could result in more than just self-satisfied wordplay. The winner, i.e. the person who guesses the lineup first, will receive a pair of five-day, all-access festival passes, good for seven events. It’ll require a bit of music knowledge, so If you’ve been going to the VIA Presents shows, you’re probably in the running for some serious hangman playing. To help players along, VIA will reveal letters throughout the gaming period, which runs from June 17th – July 1st.
