Win tickets to this weekend’s Carolina Rebellion music festival

Are you ready to rock this weekend? Thanks to Zippo, CharlotteFive has three pairs of tickets to this weekend’s Carolina Rebellion music festival at Charlotte Motor Speedway. And because you C5ers are awesome, we want to give them away.

We have one pair of VIP tickets and two pairs of general admission tickets for the whole weekend. (We’ll pick three winners and give a pair to each.) The drawing will be Thursday after 9 a.m. We will contact the winners Thursday morning. You must be able to pick the tickets up from the Charlotte Observer office uptown.

The festival runs May 6-8 and includes a ton of bands, like:

– Friday: The Scorpions, Lynyrd Skynyrd, 3 Doors Down, Sixx: A.M., Collective Soul, Between the Buried and Me, and more.

– Saturday: Five Finger Death Punch, Shinedown, A Day To Remember, Megadeth, Anthrax, Bullet For My Valentine, and more.
