What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you see the words Adele, secret, and Los Angeles in the same sentence?
 
If you thought The Artists Den, then you’re on to something!
 
Get ready for the latest secret show from Southwest’s partner The Artists Den this Friday, Feb. 25, at an amazing venue in LA. At this exclusive concert, Adele will wow guests with her powerful pipes, distinctive style, and chart-topping tunes.
 
Because Southwest knows how amazing this show is going to be, we want to send one winner and a guest to be among the select group to hear this private concert.

Now that we have your attention, here’s how to enter the contest. To gain access to this concert, all you have to do is create a caption for this photo, which is from a past Artists Den concert and has a connection with this show.
