    I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see the KONGOS play live because this tune is my summer jam when I kill kilometers on the trail. And let's be real here who wouldn't want to go to Lollapalooza with their closet friend to grab a little R&R and jam out to our fav bands! #pickme #fingerscrossed #pleasepleaseplease #lucky

    I deserve to win because I'm a 31 yr old single mom of 2 who works her ass off and loves music including theirs! Going to Lollapalooza is on my bucket list.. nor have I been on vacation in like 3 years! Also would love to go before I become the old lady at Lollapalooza!! ;)

    I deserve to win because I love eating pizza in the nude and I am nice to all of Gods hairless creatures!

    I believe I deserve a chance to go to Lollapalooza for many reasons. 1) I tried when tickets went on sell for 3days, and single passes which sold out immediate (sucks for us with jobs). 2) As a fellow Chicagoan, a fan of Chance The Rapper/Vic Mensa/SaveMoney since all of us were Chicago Public Schools before the fame, it seriously sucks that I wont be able to see my fellow classmates/friends/chicagoans perform possibly the biggest stage of their life in our hometown. Chance/Vic are the only positive representation of Chicago that we have. Most Chicagoans dont relate to Chief Keef, but they do with Chance. I MUST SEE THEM MAKE CHICAGO HISTORY

    I LOVE their music! It would be a dream come true as I have never been to a festival like that ever… Being a mom , we don't have time for all these cool things for ourselves.. I am not getting any younger and would LOVE to go see them! Live in the moment and be spontaneous. pick me pick me :) This would be AWESOME!!!!

    I deserve the chance to see Kongos live because I have been a fan since they first came out in the States. I have yet to see them live, and this would be a perfect opportunity. With student loan debt I can't afford to grab a ticket to Lollapalooza, so winning would be my next best option. Love you Perez! :)

    OMG! they are amazing!! the whole lineup for lolapalooza is by far the best out of all the other festivals this summer :) I need to get away from the NYC heat and have never been to Chicago! Also, my 24th birthday is that week!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks :D

    I deserve to win…well I would love to see KONGOS perform at Lollapalooza. They are such a unique group. Their music is so dang catchy, you can't help but get off your butt and shake what your momma gave you…

    I would love to see Kongos live because I know that they are one of the rare type of bands that sounds even better live than they do on the radio! Nothing beats that rush the audience member gets when they are hearing their favorite songs with amazing acoustics and everyone in the crowd singing the lyrics. That plus I wouldn't even need the airfare cause I already live in Chicago! #comewithmenow

    OMG ARE YOU KIDDING ME. I've seen the Kongos 3 times, my last was at LIVE 105 BFD at Shoreline Amphitheater. I danced my little butt off, literally, I danced so hard my shorts fell off. My favorite song is sex on the radio, and I'd LOVE TO SEE THEM AGAIN. PLEASE PEREZ! I beg you and your awesomeness to send me to lalapalooza. Just adding, I am a full time college student and this is not something I could ever afford, so this is a chance I'm not going to pass up! Thanks so much and remember #CHOOSEDARBY#CAUSEJUSTDOIT#PLEASE

    i deserve to go because a) i belt this song like a champ b) i've never been to chicago and should go before i die and c) i was born without this fear, now only this seems clear

    I'm addicted to the Kongos, I'm originally from Chicago and haven't been back in YEARS so I'd love to gather some family and friends for a helluva a good time! And the pizza….. that'll be a must. :) But jammin to Come With Me Now has saved me from several meltdowns, especially when I hear the lyrics "I 've wasted time, I've wasted breath, I think I've thought myself to death" It's my new mantra!

    I would love the chance to see KONGOS and the entire Lolla lineup this year because who doesn't love great bands, an incredible city and the chance to get away from work? Plus, it would be awesome to give my husband a mini-vacation before he has to go back to teaching 300+ students every day for 10+ hours. Here's hoping!

  14. Jackie White says – reply to this

    I deserve to win these tickets because I have worked my ass off for the last 5 years in school supporting myself and getting my education and a break from it all would be probably better than sex. I couldn't tell you the last time I let loose and had a dance party, and seeing a city you've never been to before? Hearing an awesome up and coming band thats about to be huge live? Chance of a lifetime. I'd be eternally grateful. & also I'd take my best friend/roommate who's been working 70 hour work weeks who probably needs this way more than I do!

    i dont deserve to win anymore than anyone else but i would love to go to celebrate my birthday and rock the hell out

    My dream is to go to Lollapalooza and see anyone, but I've seen KONGOS 3 times since they've formed. I've waited in line 3 hours before show time in KC to see these amazing guys! Whenever someone asks me for new music suggestions, I go to you guys first! I feel like KONGOS speaks to anyone and everyone with their amazing lyrics. I'd kill to win these and keep rocking hard guys!

  18. Becca says – reply to this

    I would loveeee to win these tickets because there isn't one thing I don't like about the Kongos. Their music is amazing, I listen to it on repeat nearly everyday. They guys are hilarious and such beautiful people. And the accordion, oh the accordion, I love how they play unique instruments and do their sound effects live on stage. I saw them for a small concert at JBTV in Chicago and I would do anything to see them again.

    If I had know the Kongos would be there from the beginning I would have bought a ticket long ago however I missed my chance and the fact that I don't have $300 to spend on tickets. Please please pleaseeee give me this opportunity.

    THE FIRST time I heard "COME WITH ME NOW" I knew that THIS group of 4 brothers WAS GOING TO be a HUGE SUCCESS..I told them to get their tuxedos ready. THEY WILL WIN at AMAs and the Grammys. Last week, saw them at the Troubadour. Can't afford THE ticket for the October 3rd show at Hollywood Bowl. I am MUCH older than the other fans..BUT STILL HAVE MORE DANCING IN me…that was just in LA…SOME think they're too cool to dance. I WILL DANCE ALL DAY LONG~ woooooo hoooooo

    I'd love to see Kongos live. I currently keep an update site with the band (kongosnews.tumblr.com), but I've never seen them live and I continuously read amazing reviews about them! They are a breath of fresh air to music for me and inspired me to get up and live a little, plus they are a fabulous band to dance and hoop to! I love them so and would love to see them live, especially at Lollapalooza!!!!

    For years I have saved for tickets to go to lolla pollooza and for years there has always been an unexpected event that comes up to take all my money away. All I want is to be happy one year and be able to go to a concert and see the artists that I love. Just give me this once in a lifetime opportunity and I will never forget it. Keep killing it and grinding and pretty soon you guys will be headlining.

    I deserve to see KONGOS live at Lollapalooza because have shared their music with SO MANY PEOPLE by being a spin instructor. Each of the spin participants could tell you that we hear Com With Me Now every class! And plus I am seeing them live in Buffalo NY this Saturday and need to see them again in Chicago. #groupie

  24. Thomas K says – reply to this


    24

    I have been a huge supporter of the group ever since they moved their home base to Phoenix Arizona from Africa. Seen them play to 50 to hundred people at various spots around the Phoenix area. It's great to see that they are doing well, they deserve it. It would be awesome to see them on a stage as big as Lolapalooza.

  25. Brooke says – reply to this


    25

    I deserve these tickets because not only am I a fan of the music but I am a fan of Chicago. Every year since one of my best friends moved to Chicago I go to celebrate birthdays (we share the same birthday). Last year my ex ruined this tradition by putting me in the hospital and tore my acl. I havent recovered financially from this and havent made it to see my best friend or celebrate up there in almost 2 years now. This would be an amazing adventure for me. Thank you!

    27

    I deserve to win because I'm in love with the Kongos! I've seen them live once, but I can't afford to go again. I'm a broke college student. Lollapalooza has been a dream of mine for ten years, but I've never had the money to go. It would make my life if I got this chance!

  28. Chantel says – reply to this

    Kongos at Lollapalooza would be the coolest thing! I've never been to a music festival and would love to brag to all my instagram followers with awesome pictures :P

    I would love to win because my absolutely wonderful, amazing, sweetheart of a boyfriend keeps doing nice things for me and buying great gifts for me but I can't afford to give gifts back :( This would be the most incredible way for me to thank him for coming into my life and treating me like a queen. Also, for the past week your catchy song has been in my head non stop and my poor boyfriend has had to listen to me sing it (off tune) for the past week so it would be nice to let him hear the real thing in such an amazing setting!!! :-*

  31. Christina says – reply to this


    31

    I would love to win because I love Kongos and it would be amazing to see them at lolla. I've always wanted to go to Lollapalooza and to have this chance would be really surreal. Keeping my fingers crossed! :)

    32

    After missing 2013's insane lineup at Lolla, this year I finally had enough money to buy the tickets and like most fans of this event I waited online and had my five browsers open, hoping, Id actually get through and get a ticket. . So the first day was a bust but we kept our spirits high! The next day we tried again and got through with two single day passes. Yippie right?! Well two days after that I got a job and had to move. Inevitably having to sell my tickets for less than I bought them because I needed the money for moving. So now as Lolla approaches my heart aches at the thought of not being able to attend. KONGOS grant this broke graduate the best birthday/graduation present she could imagine <3 I beg of youuuu!

    I would absolutely love to go see the kongos play at lollapalooza! i think they are an amazing band and that song come with me now is so catchy! i listen to it every day on my way to work! not to mention the entire lollapalooza lineup is so sick!! eminem, zedd, skrillex, lorde, iggy azalea!!! I've never been to a music festival and I've never visited chicago! i think it would be a fun experience and a much needed vacation since I'm a single working mom going to school to be a nurse :) but also good luck to every body!!

    Aaaghhh I have to go, I LOVE them!!!# after a string of bad luck (husband broke his leg, tons of hospital bills, and two babies all to take care of, and pick up more work at the same time), I really need the vacay and a chance to see one of my favorite bands, and a few others. Give this Texas mom, a chance to let loose and experience lollapolooza for the first time!!

    I deserve to win because I've never been to Lollapolooza before and Its the only music festival around me that actually has bands that I like, like Kongos. I've been wanting to go to Lolla ever since I was 16 years old. I already have tickets to a lolla after show, I just need tickets to get it! I don't even need the airfare, just the tickets for the festival because I only care about the MUSIC!!! Let me come with you now!

  42. Nicole says – reply to this


    42

    I EFFFINNGG LOVE KONGOS!! I have been following them since they burst on the scene, They are all total hotties, and I loved them since I first heard their enticing sound (I'm Only Joking)!! It will be my dream, and will make my entire life if I get a chance to see them live!! I am not deserving of going more than anyone else is, however, I do extremely want to go so baddd!!! I love you Perez, and I love Kongos!!! Please choose me, I have never been a big music festival, nor even traveled anywhere lol (I know sad), so this would be a dream come true. :) )))

    I deserve to see them because i’ve loved them from the beginning way back in 2011! All of their albums rock and It would be a privilege to be able to say that i’ve seen them live! Also, you’re pretty rad so I hope you pick me!

  44. Tara O says – reply to this

    Thanks for your consideration.

    45

    You wouldn't have to pay for airfare because I live in Chicago. I couldn't justify the cost of the ticket because most of the headliners aren't that great… Also, Kongos rule.

  46. Zach says – reply to this


    46

    KONGOS has actually gotten me through some rough events. Music is my scapegoat away from sadness, and my mood was always boosted listening to KONGOS. I first discovered KONGOS on Pandora. I have not been able to get enough. I have a lot of their music on my phone now. If I got the opportunity to go, i'd be front row forgetting about the bad in life in the fantasy land of lolla.

  47. Disko says – reply to this

    I'm Koo-Koo for Kongos! I'm a LUNATIC for the band and would be love to see them live. I'm in Chicago and ready to rock with these guys!

    Because Kongos rocks my face off.

    I would love to win these tickets not just to have the chance to see Kongos and attend Lolla, but also because I will be able to visit with one of my best friends who lives in Chicago and will be attending Lolla. We became friends freshman year of college and I am transferring to a different school this year. The chances to see her are few and far between since I live in Maryland and this opportunity would mean the world to me.

    I would love to win tickets. This is an opportunity I would never have In life. Being a single mother I could never afford to spend this much on an activity that does not include my son. This would be a great treat for me that I could never do for myself. Thank you for the consideration and opportunity and congrats in advance to the person who wins.

    I saw them kill it in a small bar in Toronto in front of a couple hundred people. I would love to see them again, this time with a festival crowd. I'm sure Dylan Kongo will still be bouncing around barefoot. Thanks for the chance!

  56. Alicia Solis says – reply to this


    56

    I deserve to win because I adore these men and their music. I work my tush off just so I can be able to go to shows, but Lollapalooza is impossible for me to attend. Being able to see these amazing men on the Lollapalooza stage will be breathtaking. After seeing them at a few shows and a festival, I am a true fan that loves being able to just hear their music. Plus I know that they give the greatest hugs because they can always spot my "Free Hugs" sign in the crowd, which means I deserve to give the free hugs again, but this time at Lollapalooza!

    57

    i deserve to go see Kongos at lollapalooza because they are my favorite band and i would love to see them perform in a music festival because they are all super hot and talented! i have been listening to their album non stop especially the song im only joking :) . Also i planned to go to lollapalooza with my friends a couple months ago and they ended up canceling on me the day i was about to get tickets. It i would literally make me so happy if i won i love music and have always been wanting to go to a music festival to see my favorite bands and discover new ones as well.

    I first heard come with me now by KONGOS on alt nation about 6 or so months ago. I stared playing it for all my friends and everyone loved it. Then, when they released their album I immediately bought it and I'm obsessed with I'm only joking and others. Now I'm only joking plays on alt nation as well and I hear come with me now on many commericials and it's super cool for me to know that I heard this awesome band when it was first introduced and I would love a chance to see them live!

    This is my second comment …I'm not sure if you are allowed more than one..but I really truly want to see this show. more than life itself would be ridiculous. Because that would make me dead..but I really want to go.I will dance my fanny off want to some awesome music…I'm older than your average fan, but I am hip to your music

    I first discovered Kongos about 7 to 8 months ago while searching through the internet listening to new music. I quickly spread the songs to friends and others to share this new sound! I love listening to Kongos and seeing them succeed has been inspiring. I love all their songs on Lunatic as Kongos has their own unique sound and they make every song unique and killer! I've tried purchasing tickets multiple times yet they have always sold out too quickly. I would LOVE to go to Lollapalooza for a once in a lifetime chance to see my favorite artists (finally!!) in a beautiful place!

  66. Brandi Fjeld says – reply to this

    I deserve to win because I've been a long time supporter of KONGOS and to see them on the grandest stage of all would be #AMAZING

  67. Bailey Carr says – reply to this


    67

    I waited for almost a good hour virtually in line to get tickets and missed out! I am in love with this line up and really would love to experience the amazing city of Chicago once more. As a fresh out of college girl, the kongos have really gave me the motivation for the job hunt and go start out the real world right!

  68. Ross says – reply to this


    68

    These Kongos bros are amazing to see live. Got a chance to see them in Buffalo last night and it would be awesome to get a chance to see them again, especially at a festival like Lollapalooza! Gotta see them again.

    I deserve the chance to see the KONGOS perform live because this is the only way I will be able to go to Lolla. I was medically discharged from the Coast Guard just a couple days ago. So I just have recently been through basic training, which really, really sucks. Seeing the KONGOS and getting the chance to go to Lolla would just make everything so much better. Plus I think the KONGOS are amazing. Please pick me.. <3

    I am a music Lover! I live & breath music, I feel bad for my coworkers as I cannot functions without my music. As a Chicagoan I contemplated getting Lolla tickets this year as money is tight but I though screw it, & I failed! If you have ever attempted to purchase these tickets you know the FRUSTRATION that one goes through to purchase these bad boys! Waiting in the browser that says your in line, it sort of mocks you, and temps you to close it and open a new one! But you don't because you know you will loose your place, regardless Lady Luck was not my side that day as tickets sold out, (after about a 45 minute wait)
    So you see, I would love go see the KONGOS rock out at Lolla, I've seen them & met them a few times. Really cool cats! They put on a great show! Great energy, that keeps the crowd hyped! Not all performers are able to accomplish this at live shows. It would be pretty legendary to see them in the CHI town setting, that only one can view at Lollapolooza 😁Also this can be part of my Birthday present as my birthday is on August 6 😉 #ButapartofmeknowsthatI'mgrowingtooold

    I love Kongos and Lollapalooza. There's nothing better than a music festival for me. I'm addicted to music festivals and when all the awesome bands you love are playing all the same festival, its heaven on earth. And this years Lollapalooza is perfection for me, and would love to go. Please and thank you.

    I would absolutely love to go to see Lollapalooza and see KONGOS play. I have had their big song in my head and want to sip a beer while hearing it live. I live in Chicago and the whole city is preparing to welcome KONGOS and bands from around the world. I would flip the f out if I got to be there this weekend!

    I would love to get tickets to see kongos perform at lolla becauseeeee 1. Their name is simply awesome. 2. When their song comes on pandora I never press the skip button because their groovy tunes are something I really enjoy! 3. It would honestly be super cool to be able to see them perform live! :)

    Because it would be the first decent thing to happen to me in months!! And it would be an amazing welcome home present after studying in Eastern Europe for 3 months and basically not being able to go to any concerts, while so much music has been happening this summer!!! I NEED A FESTIVAL STAT!!!

    My boyfriend discovered this band while he was on vacation. He immediately texted me a link to a YouTube video and said WATCH THIS NOW–THEY ARE AWESOME! So I watched it, and was so impressed. My boyfriend has been under a tremendous amount of stress as of late, and he honestly deserves to see his new favorite band more than I do. He is a wonderful person and would be so appreciative, grateful, and excited to be there. It would be mean so much to him, and give him a much needed break fr the current perils in our life. Thanks!!!

    please pick me to see the kongos! Ever since I heard their song on the radio I've been in love. Also, I live only 3 hours from lolla but have never been!!! I've been wanting to go to lolla forever but due to my job (foster care case worker) I could never justify buying the tickets and asking for the days off…. If I won them, then id have to go :) please help me have a little mini vacay and a little stress reliever see a band that I LOVE! Thanks <3

    The last time I saw them was at the Cubby Bear (a tiny club here in Chicago), so it would be amazing to see them on one of Lolla's huge stages!

    They're a super hardworking band and totally deserve all of this success.

    I definitely would LOVE to see the KONGOS live because I'm legit OBSESSED with Come with me now and their album Lunatic! One of my favorite songs of theirs is definitely I'm Only Joking! I watched their mini documentary on YouTube and they are so down to earth and I love their on-stage personalities! PLEASE pick me for this AMAZING opportunity!

    I would love to see KONGOS play live (again) because they are my favorite band, and also because it would be awesome to be in Chicago and at lollapalooza during the weekend I turn 21! You only turn 21 once right? Why not make it the best weekend of my life!

    I deserve to win because I've been going to their shows since 2007 and have followed them for the past 7 years to where they are today.

    I just saw KONGOS this past weekend and they are amazing! I would love to seem them again. But my brother is a huge fan of KONGOS; he has seen them 2 times already and loves them. His 21st birthday is the day they are performing at Lollapalooza and I know he would love to see them a third time especially at Lollapalooza! Going to Lollapalooza has always been a dream of ours! We both love music and how great of a birthday present would that be for my brother!!

    I just graduated High School and normally a 18 yr old girl would go out every night with friends and travel with family but unfortunately I've been stuck at work all summer. The best thing this summer was seeing KONGOS live in my hometown, Peoria, IL (my very first concert ever) and it was one of the best experiences in my life! And I would love to end my summer by seeing KONGOS at Lollapalooza in Chicago!

    I deserve to see KONGOS live at Lollapalooza because I knew about them before they came on the radio. I know that there is waaaay more to them than just this song and I think they deserve more recognition. Also, going to Lollapalooza would be a dream come true for me and my beat friend. The line up each day is amazing and I had my heart set on going ever since I missed last year's awesome lineup. Also, Chicago is honestly my favorite place in the world and concerts there are the best.

    I'm absolutely loving KONGOS. One of the most exciting new rock bands around at the moment. People always go on and on about how rock is dead, but it's bands like this that are keeping it alive and kicking! I'd love to get to go to Lollapalooza to see KONGOS and all the other great bands playing. Why should I get to go? Because I'm a true blue rock and roll fan. You can bet I'll be up front in the crowd headbanging my way to glory. I'd do a thumbs emoticon if I could. I mean, Perez, you come to SXSW here in Austin every year, so you must appreciate music like I do. I go to events like that to check out all the amazing new music coming out from around the world and to support live music. But I haven't seen KONGOS yet, so make it happen Perez!

    I would love to see kongos play becasue i have never been to a music festival and this seems like the one to be at. i cant imagine a better venue or time of year (with their song of the summer) to experience this.
