Win VIP Passes to the Kahbang Music and Arts Festival in Maine

The Kahbang Music and Arts Festival launched last summer in Bangor, Maine with Matt & Kim and Ra Ra Riot headlining — but it’s still relatively unheard-of. This year Kahbang will be running from August 6-14, and the list of performers includes Ok Go, Biz Markie, The Gay Blades, BoB, Free Energy and more. There will be plenty of art installations and a film festival portion as well.

Kahbang’s concept is to translate some of the live music energy from Brooklyn way up north. And in that spirit, we’re offering two pairs of VIP passes to FreeWilliamsburg readers. Just leave us a comment on our Facebook page, and we’ll randomly select two winners who will each get a pair of VIP passes to the festival. Summer road trip, anyone? And speaking of road trips, Kahbang’s planners are still looking to book more bands and artists, so if you are interested in participating, go ahead and contact them here.


Pass Includes:

  • Entry to festival grounds (2-Day Music pass)
  • Entry to any film screening (Film Pass)
  • Access to all special events (Q/A sessions, Panels, etc.)
  • Access to KahBang VIP events
  • Advanced seating/reserved seating/preferred seating
  • Limited edition 2010 festival T-shirt
  • Limited edition souvenir ticket
  • Complimentary beverages (water, soda, juice)*
  • VIP Bar specials ($2 drafts / $3 well drinks)*

*Music Festival Only


  1. This is awesome! I went to KahBang last year and loved it, ended up coming away from the festival with a lot of new favorite bands. This year’s lineup is insanely AMAZING! Can’t wait for B.o.B Ok Go and Biz, love having huge acts coming to Bangor, Maine!

  2. I went to this last year. Ra Ra Riot and Matt and Kim rocked. It’s not your regular corporate festival. It’s put on by a bunch of people in their 20’s who volunteer their time because they wanna bring some art and culture to their home state of Maine. Tickets are extremely cheap too. Only $25 a day. It’s definitely worth the road trip to Bangor, Maine in my opinion. I’m pretty excited about the film festival portion too. Looks like the KahBang festival is well on its way to becoming one of New Englands premiere indie rock festivals. Best of luck to these guys.

    What!?! B.o.B at KahBang this year?! I have to win these tickets, I went last year and thought it was great, but this year looks HUGE. Cannot believe such huge acts are coming to Bangor, Maine, I can’t wait for KahBang!

    This is ridiculously cheap as far as festivals go, I will definitely make this happen. I have no idea where Bangor, ME is, but this is going to be sick. OKGO and the biz for the price of less than half a tank of gas?! Good. To. Go.

  5. I’m from Maine and I’ve been reading FREEwilliamsburg for about a year…I will actually be home while the festival is going on and would love to get a VIP pass! Don’t know if this contest is still going on, but think about letting me win it, thanks!

  6. Don’t know if you already gave these away, but I’ve been a Free Williamsburg reader for about a year and my home is in Maine…I’ll be back there during the KahBang Festival and I’d love to have the VIP passes, think about it!

  7. Hope you haven’t given these away already, but I would love to be considered as a candidate for the VIP passes. I’ve been a Free Williamsburg reader for about a year, I’m from Maine, and I’ll be back during KahBang…sounds perfect right? Make my dream come true!
