Over the past two months, hundreds of independent bands sent in music submissions for the 2005 10KLF Cosmic Break Competition to be one of the lucky bands to land a festival performance slot. Thirty bands were selected out of the qualified entries and six winners were chosen. The festival organizers found it too difficult for its panel of industry professionals to pick only three Cosmic Break bands, so the field was expanded to include six bands that receive a performance slot. The selections were based on musicianship, participation in the contest, email responses from fans, and the recent Voting Booth results.

The winners of the 2005 10KLF Cosmic Break Competition include (in no particular order):


Holy Moses and the High Rollers

Cosmic Kibosh

Smokin’ Bandits

56 Hope Road

Roadside Zoo

Covert Operations

Cosmic Break winners and all other bands at 10KLF will perform on four stages, including the Barn Stage on a shady hill overlooking the concert bowl, the Field Stage where the audience can spread out and soak up some sun, the Saloon Stage for intimate concerts and late night jams, and the Main Stage where everyone gathers in the evening for the major concerts featuring Widespread Panic and Trey Anastasio.

Single-day tickets are available starting at $40, multi-day tickets starting at $75 and VIP packages are available now through the festival website. Tickets will also be available at the gate.

The event ticket price includes all band performances and camping under the stars adjacent to the most beautiful outdoor concert venue in the nation. The 10,000 Lakes Festival held at the 600-acre Soo Pass Ranch in beautiful Northern Minnesota contains numerous campgrounds, built specifically for people to enjoy their camping experience in a spacious, friendly and comfortable setting.

Festival-goers can relax in beautiful Lake Sallie Campground with over 3,000 feet of shoreline or settle into the magnificent forest of the Northwoods campground. VIP Camping is located directly behind the Main Stage. The campgrounds are well groomed with permanent roads and real showers and are suitable for virtually any kind of camping vehicle. Every campground is within easy walking distance of the concert site.

Modern amenities on site include clean, permanent restrooms facilities with running water; additionally, internet access and a wide variety of high quality food and beverages will be available.

The Conscious Alliance and 10,000 Lakes Festival are proud to announce the 1st Annual 10KLF Food Drive to benefit the White Earth Indian Reservation of Minnesota. While supplies last, patrons that donate 10 or more non-perishable food items will receive a free 10KLF poster designed by renowned Widespread Panic artist Jeff Wood of Drowning Creek Studio. Donation bins will be located outside of each main entrance to the festival grounds. These locations will also be marked on the festival guide map.

In addition to the canned food drive, the 10,000 Lakes Festival will contribute a portion of each ticket sold to benefit the Rex Foundation, a non-profit, charitable organization established in 1983 by friends and members of the Grateful Dead. The Rex Foundation proactively provides extensive community support to creative endeavors in the arts, sciences, and education and has furnished over $7 million in grants to hundreds of organizations since 1984.
