treasure island 2011 Giveaway: A pair of passes to Treasure Island Music Festival 2011

This weekend, the fifth annual Treasure Island Music Festival will bring the finest in electronica (Empire of the Sun, Cut Copy, Chromeo) and alt-rock (Death Cab For Cutie, Beach House, and Stephen Malkmus) to San Francisco’s breath-taking Treasure Island. Basically, it tops anything you have planned for this weekend — that is unless you’re actually going to the festival — so let’s have some spontaneous fun.

Starting right now (aka 12:00 p.m. PST), you have 24 hours to justify why you should go to Treasure Island 2011. It can be an original song expressing your love for the festival and/or CoS, or maybe an arial show in which you write the festival’s name in the sky. Anything works, really, just as long as you don’t light yourself on fire and/or get arrested. Also, make sure to document your efforts in either written, photo, or video form. Then, at 12 p.m. PST Tuesday, we’ll select one winner, who will then receive a pair of two-day passes to this weekend’s festival.

For those who don’t prove successful, one-day and two-day passes for Treasure Island 2011 remain on sale via the festival’s website.

I would love to see The Hold Steady perform. “We’re gonna build something this summer!”

If I won tickets I would most certainly be “Walking On A Dream” regarding “Where I’m Going”. Then at night I could dream about Treasure Island rather than my normal “Every Night My Teeth Are Falling Out.”

Going to Treasure Island really would be better than a “Walk In The Park” and a great way to for all of us to “Stay Young, Go Dancing”.

Free tickets certainly are far superior to the “Asking Price” and if it’s sunny I certainly hope that everyone stays hydrated and will “Take Care Take Care Take Care”. 

Then again, if I don’t win the tickets, I suppose I could just go, “Go Home, Get Down” to some tunes – but man I hope I do win because I hear Treasure Island really is “The Sweet Part Of The City”.

And I truly am quite curious to see “When The Night Falls” just how much everyone turns into a “Hot Mess”.

I would really like to go because that same weekend of the fest, i will up in San Francisco to visit family from San Diego. Because i don’t have a job i am not able to buy tickets for me and my sister. So if we win, my sister and i would be so great full! And because of COS, i was led into this world of wonderful music everyday. So thanks guys for that.
