If you weren’t already excited by everything the upcoming Lockn’ Festival has to offer, “Participation Row” is sure to provide a relaxing, rewarding experience at the energetically chaotic concert.
Participation Row is being organized by the New York based HeadCount.org and is anchored by the Qello Lounge. Qello is a provider of full-length HD concerts and musical documentaries, and is the presenting sponsor of Participation Row.
If at any point during the festival you want to relax and sit down the Qello Lounge will be there for you, and you can feel good about yourself while being there. Upon entering the festival attendees will be given a card to bring to any non-profit group on Participation Row where they will receive a corresponding stamp for completing a certain action. After visiting 4 booths, and receiving the four stamps, Qello Lounge will be open with a library of on-demand music and couches to relax on. If that doesn’t seem like enough, attendees will also then receive a 30-day free Qello “all access pass” and entered in to a series of drawings, including VIP tickets to next year’s Lockn’, a signed guitar by performing artists, and a year-long Qello “all access pass.”
Participation Row will host the Nelson County Pantry, Appalachian Voices, The Instrumental Giving Fund, FeedRVA, the North Branch School, Habitat for Humanity, The Sierra Club, Oxfam, and the ONE campaign, so there are a variety of stops you can make along the Row.
Lockn’ promotor Peter Shapiro states:
“Lockn’ is going to be a unique and memorable experience, and Participation Row will be central to that. Everyone who attends this festival will leave with great memories and a feeling that they were part of something special.”
If you’re at the festival and need a break make sure to check out a great area for a great cause!
