Win tickets to see Common at Afrikadey! Festival [Contest]


Calgary, AB – We’re nearing the two-week countdown to Common’s headlining performance at the Afrikadey! Festival in Calgary. And we’re getting pretty excited— are you? It’s not every day that Chicago’s hip-hop legend – who also happens to be a writer, actor, activist, and everything else in between– plays a show in Calgary (it’s actually only been two years, but we’re still getting antsy). So we’ve partnered up with our friends over at the Afrikadey! Arts & Culture Society for a ticket giveaway. Peep the official festival flyer and check out contest entry details after the jump.
