Osl12 Logo Final Highres It's almost time for Outside Lands, the massive music festival in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. This year's festival, August 10-12, features the likes of Foo Fighters, Beck, Sigur Ros, Regina Spektor, Explosions in the Sky, Yacht, Tame Impala, Die Antwoord, Neil Young, Stevie Wonder, Franz Ferdinand, Norah Jones, Metallica, and dozens of other diverse acts. Wanna go? Our friends at Outside Lands provided a pair of 3-day tickets for the festival, a $450 value, to give to someone in the BB community. Here's how to win them:

Snap a photo that is quintessentially "summer." Then pick a song from one of this year's Outside Lands artists that epitomizes the image. (Or start with the song and then take the photo!) Next, post the image and the song title/artist to Instagram with the hashtag #OSLBOING. And if you're not into Instagram, you can post the image and song title/artist to Twitter using the #OSLBOING hashtag. Or if you really don't like either of those options, post the image and the song/artist to Flickr or anywhere else and link to it in the comments thread below. You have until 11:59pm PT on Tuesday (7/31). On Wednesday (8/1), I'll post our three favorites. Those three finalists will all receive Boing Boing t-shirts! And Friday (8/3), we'll announce the winner of the Outside Lands 3-Day Tickets! Please only one entry per person.

Good luck!


  1. How about a motion picture? I made this last year and what could be better than riding old mopeds with your friends to a soundtrack of Explosions in the Sky?

  2. I just wanted to apologize for all the tags I did on multiple photos. I got so excited seeing this contest that I didn’t keep reading to where it says, “one upload a person please.” For that I am truly sorry. My mind was racing a 100 miles per hour! Boingboing is the best & I appreciate the chance to participate in the contest. Thank you for the chance!

    1. Please pick one as your entry and add an “@pescovitz” comment to it saying that’s the one you’d like to enter. Thanks!

  3. Man, I’d much rather a limerick contest again. I can rhyme far better than I can hold a camera.  For that matter, if only I could submit pictures taken last month, but I guess I’ll stick with the rules.
    (Have to avoid the Regina Spektor temptation.)

    The picture shows Critical Mass Toronto going down Dundas West (if I remember correctly) on a warm summer evening. Photo was shot from my bike with a 50+ year old fully manual Kodak Retina I bought as a kid in Sweden for 10 Swedish Krona, which was a pretty neat deal!

    1. Us- Regina Spektor “They made a statue of us – And it put it on a mountaintop – Now tourists come and stare at us – Blow bubbles with their gum – Take photographs have fun, have fun”

      Maybe this pooch is not a statue but she should be!
