** UPDATE: Unfortunately, this year’s Festival for Humanity has been canceled. As a result, we will no longer be giving away tickets to the event.
Don’t have any plans for Memorial Day weekend? You’re in luck! Rock Edition is teaming up with the Festival for Humanity to give away four pairs of tickets, one pair for EACH day of the event.
Festival for Humanity will take place from May 27-30 at Mountain Creek Resort in Vernon, New Jersey. Headliners include Good Charlotte, Third Eye Blind, The New Pornographers, The Misfits, From Good Homes, Sister Hazel, Cracker, Soul Asylum, and many more! There will be over 40 bands in all.
The festival aims to benefit charities of suicide prevention, health and nutrition. Woodfired Management will share 33% of all Festival for Humanity related merchandise directly with the Kristin Brooks Hope Center, who are the founders of 1-800-SUICIDE. Futhermore, they have pledged 10% of all Net Ticket Sales to the charities of Humanity Village.
In addition to all the great live music, there will be a Graffiti Art Therapy Project led by abstract artist Franck de Las Mercedes, along with a Post Secret Exhibit where concert attendees can add their own secrets.
Located just 47 miles from the George Washington Bridge, Mountain Creek is the New York metro area’s closest ski resort, offering 167 skiable acres on four mountain peaks, 100% night skiing, the region’s highest vertical and the East Coast’s only true All Mountain Terrain Park south of Vermont. The resort also offers Mountain Biking at their Diablo Freeride Park, home of the U.S. Open of Mountain Biking, coincidentally held during the same weekend. There are seven golf courses on the resort property, a large water park, full-service spa, miles of hiking trails and Gondola rides. Ample lodging is available on-site and in adjoining towns as well as several camping options nearby. Mountain Creek and Crystal Springs Resorts will be the exclusive food and beverage providers for the event, aligned with the theme of health and nutrition by featuring whole food options to elevate a finer experience for the fan.
