There has been so much support pouring in over the last few days and we’ve decided to run an awesome competition! This idea was suggested by my friend Shannon Mclaughlin (all around awesome lady). This is going to be so much FUN!!

We’re running a competition!

Details below pasted from quicket (online service we’re selling the tickets through)
also, here’s the event on facebook:

Nate Maingard is an indie/folk singer-songwriter based in Cape Town. He’s played some of the country’s finest festivals, released two critically acclaimed albums and is heading overseas in August. As one reviewer said of him in her recent four star review, “Maingard writes protest songs for lovers and love songs for rebels.”

Before he goes…

Check out this AWESOME first prize!
> A private show with Nate Maingard for you and twenty friends, at your home anywhere in the Cape Town area.
> Free pizzas provided by Earthshine ( for the event.
> Professional photographer taking photos of the evening (thanks to the awesome Fiona Hare).
> A package including Nate’s first album The Wild Land and his new album Home (both signed), plus four awesome stickers designed by Terri Hutchings!
> Last, but so not least, we will make you home-made and totally delicious gluhwein to keep us all toasty.

Second prize:
> This will include the package of both The Wild Land and Home plus stickers!

Third prize:
> Album of your choice, either The Wild Land or Home.

Once the competition closes we will print out all the names and Nate will draw the winners from a hat (he has very cool hats thanks to Lila Richter and The Little Hattery). 

Tickets are limited to 550, so the odds of winning are pretty high! Plus, we will be donating 10% of the takings to a worthy charity. Goodness all around, yay!

The show will be sometime between 13 July and 07 August (which is when Nate flies overseas), depending on when both Nate and the winner have time:).

If you don’t live in Cape Town, don’t let that stop you! If you win, you could always give the first prize as a gift to a Cape Town friend! Plus, you never know, you may win a few CD’s and stickers!
