WTMX-FM – Lollapalooza Sweepstakes


1. HOW TO ENTER/HOW TO BECOME A QUALIFIER: NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. There are two (2) ways to enter this sweepstakes.

This is a “listen and win” sweepstakes. The sweepstakes will run from 7:00 a.m. on Monday, June 6, 2016, through 7:20 a.m. on Friday, June 10, 2016. Listen to WTMX-FM, The MIX – 101.9 (or the “Station”) weekdays during the days and hours listed in the preceding sentence.

a. Listen to 101.9fm The MIX at 7:20 a.m. In order to enter via this method of entry, listen to 101.9fm The Mix at 7:20 a.m. each day during the sweepstakes, and the on-air talent will announce that they will take a designated number caller (for example: 25th caller, 10th caller) who calls 312-591-6800. If you are the designated number caller to reach the Station, and meet the eligibility requirements set forth in Paragraph 5 below, you will be awarded the qualifier prize listed in Paragraph 3.a below and be placed into a drawing for the Grand Prize. If the Station is readily able to determine that the caller is ineligible to participate in the Sweepstakes, the Station will take the next caller and continue this process until an eligible participant is found. The Station, in its sole and absolute discretion, may or may not take an alternative caller to participate. The person calling in to the Station as the designated caller must be the same person who claims the prize; substitute callers (e.g. friends, relatives, co-workers, etc.) or substitute parties claiming the prize are not allowed (except in the case of a disability that prevents the person from calling himself or herself) and will result in disqualification at the sole discretion of WTMX. One winner per household during the duration of this sweepstakes. There will be up to seven (7) winners via this method of entry.

b. Listen to 101.9fm The Mix at 11:20 a.m., 1:20 a.m. and 4:20 p.m. Text Message Entry. Up to three (3) times each weekday (Wednesday-Thursday) WTMX-FM will provide a special word to text back to the station. At that time listeners can text the word to WTMX-FM’s short code “60123”. Listeners will have five (5) minutes from the time we announce the word to text in to participate for a chance to win the prize listed in Paragraph 2 below. Limit of one text message per person, per specific hourly artist of the day song.

Text message rates apply. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the person submitting a mobile text entry, the entry will be deemed to be submitted by the person in whose name the mobile number is registered. The winner may be required to provide evidence that the winner is the authorized account holder of the mobile number associated with the winning entry and complete an affidavit and any applicable release.
