If you've ever been to a music festival, you know how hard it is to figure out which act you want to see at any given time because so many are performing simultaneously on different stages.  Now imagine that same scenario, except instead of taking place in the same location, all the acts are performing simultaneously across all 50 U.S. states.  That's the concept behind Budweiser's "50/50/1" concert event, scheduled for August 1.

Coheed and Cambria , Jimmy Eat World , The Gaslight Anthem and Sevendust are among the acts who'll be taking the stage in every single state in the union on August 1st.  For example, Coheed and Cambria will be performing in Honolulu, Hawaii, while Jimmy Eat World will take the stage in St. Louis, Missouri. The Gaslight Anthem will perform in Burlington, Vermont, and Sevendust will rock the stage in Lawrence, Kansas.  Other artists involved include Portugal. The Man , Alex Clare , Capital Cities , The Flaming Lips , Halestorm and Sublime with Rome . Get the full lineup on Bud Light's MySpace hub.

Tickets for some concerts are available for purchase at LiveNation.com, but many more are available to win through the Bud Light app, Bud Lights' Facebook page or Bud Light's MySpace hub.  Select performances will also be streamed on the MySpace site.

Here's the bad news: all concert attendees have to be 21 years of age and older.
