On August 14-15, San Francisco's Golden Gate Park will host Outside Lands, a massive music festival with several dozen excellent bands, food, wine, art, and a big dose of Bay Area culture. Main stage performers include Kings of Leon, Furthur featuring Phil Lesh and Bob Weir, The Strokes, My Morning Jacket, Al Green, and Cat Power. There are also a slew of killer acts throughout the day on smaller stages, from Gogol Bordello to Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars to Rebirth Brass Band. The best news is that our friends at Outside Lands kindly provided Boing Boing with two pairs of two-day tickets to give away to our readers! ($140/ticket value!) Want them? Tell us why. Or rather, sing it to us.
To enter our Outisde Lands 2010 ticket contest, please compose a song about why you want to go to the festival, and record it on video or audio. Your song can be as simple (a capella!) to as elaborate (orchestral!) as you want. If you make a video, please upload it to YouTube. Audio only recordings should be posted on Archive.org. Our own Dean "Dino" Putney is going to judge, so email dean at boing boing dot net with a link to your entry. The deadline for entries is August 4 at 11:59pm PDT. We'll announce the winners on Friday, August 6.
Good luck and we look forward to, er, hearing from you!
