Winners & Full explanation

First of all.. Congrats Nine van der K, you were the first one to solve the puzzel correctly, in just a few hours and before any hint was dropped.

Winners 2 and 3 are Ellis N. Joost B.!

PUZZLE 1 EXPLANATION

If you stripe away all words that are given in the hint below the puzzle on the contest page, the outcome is ‘DANCE’.

PUZZLE 2 EXPLANATION

If you fit in 5 of the artists that are performing on our festival: Nero, Pegboard Nerds, Gydra, Protostar and Whiney, the outcome is ‘AGAIN’.

PUZZLE 3 EXPLANATION

You see there’s a sentence to be made; but no letters yet! On the place of the 5 letter words, you enter previous outcomes. Again is on the spot where there’s 2 the same numbers on the ‘a’-s of again, then dance will take the other spot.

Fill in the letters connecting the numbers and you get a good view of what the sentence will be:

THIS SUMMER WE WILL DANCE AGAIN

and/or

WE WILL DANCE AGAIN THIS SUMMER
