Well folks, I think it’s about time that I announced the winners to this year’s Lemonfest competition. The event is taking place at Newton Abbot Racecourse on Saturday May 30th and the lineup is MORE than impressive.
Two lucky winners each take away a pair of tickets, they can look forward to seeing some class acts such as The Subways, Dub Pistols, DJ Yoda and a host of local acts including Moriaty, Matthew & Me and many many more.
In total, we received 367 entries to the competition, it took us a LONG TIME to go through each entry and whittle them down to the top 10, it then took us even longer to filter these down to the top 5, from there on in, it was near torture deciding on the 2 final entries that have been successful in winning a pair of tickets to this great local music festival.
So, without further ado, here are our two winners….
First up, Jane Bird from Kingsteignton sent in a wonderful summary of her dream festival, this sounds like one that I would never leave, until I was dragged away….
