Win free tickets to the Treasure Island Music Festival in San Francisco!


Want free VIP tickets to Boing Boing's favorite annual music event, the Treasure Island Music Festival taking place on the San Francisco Bay, October 17-18? This year, you will be thrilled by the unique musical stylings of The National, deadmau5, FKA Twigs, The War On Drugs, Chvrches, Father John Misty, Lower Dens, Jose Gonzalez, and more than a dozen other acts. Our pals at Noise Pop, co-promoters of the event with Another Planet Entertainment, have gifted us a pair of VIP 2-Day Tickets (a $630 value) to pass on to Boing Boing readers! VIP includes access to a nice viewing area beside the main stage, tented lounge with full bar, special VIP food sellers, and private restroom facilities (yay!). To win the passes, we are continuing our annual tradition of the Treasure Island Music Festival Haiku Contest!

Here's what to do:

Write a Haiku about why you want to attend the festival! The Haiku must consist of three lines, with the first line containing 5 syllables, the second containing 7 syllables, and the third line containing 5 syllables. Then post your Haiku to the Boing Boing forum right here. You have until 11:59pm PDT on Thursday (10/1) to enter. We'll pick our favorite Haikus and email you at the address you used to create your forum account. (Or you can list an alternate address in your entry.) On Friday (10/2), I'll post our three finalists who will each receive a Boing Boing t-shirt! On Tuesday (10/6), I'll announce the winner of the VIP tickets. Please only one entry per person. Good luck!!!
