Beyond Wonderland Giveaway

It’s not every day that international DJs come through the Bay Area. Reason enough for KZSC’s RPM & Promo departments to get excited about “Beyond Wonderland” next weekend. The weekend festival September 28th & 29th will highlight the best from progressive house, trance, dubstep, trap, and any other imaginable genre on the electronic spectrum including up and coming British DJs Jamie Jones and world stylist  Oliver Twizt.  How these musicians’ work translates in an outdoor Amphitheater will be very interesting.  KZSC is going to share this experience by offering ticket giveaways during Booty Bouncing Bass (Sun. Sept.  22 10:30pm-12:30am) and on The Endless Loop (Mon. Sept. 23 10:30pm-12:30am).  Be sure to tune in to 88.1FM KZSC for your chance to win a pair of weekend passes.  You can also enter RIGHT NOW by liking KZSC on Facebook and by sharing the image of the Beyond Wonderland Lineup.  One winner will be picked at random on Tuesday at noon.  Please keep in mind that Beyond Wonderland Bay Area is an 18+ event.
