All right, my fellow festies, you are in for quite the weekend! Mattel and The Anthology want to give you two tickets to Live at Squamish August 20-21 plus a Mattel Game On! prize pack!
It’ll look just like this, except with mountains instead of palm trees.
You’ll get to see Girl Talk, Weezer, Metric, Stars, Brasstronaut (whose lead singer wrote the score for the Flying Pigeon film),and Major Lazer (whose raunchy performance at Coachella last year was #4 on my list of the top ten learning experiences). Plus you’ll get to stop by the Mattel Game On! experience and more. The tickets and prize pack are valued at $348, but you could win your way in. How?
For one entry: Comment on this post and tell us what you love most about summer weekend fun (brownie points if you say music festivals).
For two entries: Write on The Anthology’s Facebook wall.
For three entries: Holler @TheAnthology on Twitter.
The contest is open to any reader who can get to Live at Squamish next weekend. The lucky winner will be chosen on Wednesday, August 17th (contest closes 5:00pm PST 17/08/11). Good luck!
UPDATE: We have a winner! Congratulations Stefanie!
oh man i love me some music-under-the sun in the summertime…and squamish! yes!
What I Love Most About Summer Weekends…
… Mini umbrellas perched on pina coladas, banana-scented sunscreen, tanned toes, naked hippies at Wreck Beach and of course:
There is so much to love about music festivals. The food (from couscous to cotton candy), eccentric folk in crazy costumes, the guy that’s been passed out under a tree for the day, painted camper vans, going barefoot and…
… THE MUSIC.
What I love most about summer weekend fun:
Sangria season, bbq’s, picnics, trips to the island, and reading a good book in the sun.
A music festival would make summer even better. Girl Talk, the Zolas, and Metric are worth the trip up the Sea to Sky.
The best part about summer weekends is getting to do absolutely nothing but be under the sun! I love the freedom of not having work and getting to listen to music and dance around with friends!
I love laying on the beach, listening to some good tunes with some good friends, enjoying some good drinks. What else would you do in the summer? Oh right, attend awesome music festivals!!
Friends, family, cocktails, BBQ & live music shows/festivals – especially ones i can walk too!! Doesn’t happen often in Squamish – please please!
Live music, hot fires, lakes and lazy days. Dazzling sun and hot summer rain.
Ignoring clocks, just telling time by the brightness of the sky.
Vitamins soaking into my skin from the rays of the sun, and fresh produce.
Evenings that go on and on, followed so soon by beautiful mornings.
After-glow of summer carries me all the way to
Summer makes me
Quiver with excitement, and a happy
Understanding of the cycle of life.
Memories are made while living purely
In the moment and
Happiness with other lovers of joy, laughter and sunshine!!
a fun summer weekend is bumbershoot in seattle!
What I love most about summer is a beach party of the music festival variety! A FREE summer beach party of the musical variety! From my lovely friends at The Anthology!
I want, I want, I want! :D
BBQ’s, Bike ride on the seawall, and hanging out with friends on the beach
Summer without music (and music festivals of course) would be like winter without snow. Not the same.
The best variety of weekend summer involves music festivals, the Chief, being in BC, and kicking back in a cool indian-inspired maxi dress…. with an oversized cocktail.
BCBGMAXAZRIA is by far my fave. I love the shorts. :)
My favorite thing about weekends this summer has been running into farmers markets, ex boyfriends (that I actually like) and beautiful places…completely unexpectedly. The sun just brings out happy moments!
(It also reminds me to be patient during my less-happy moments…)
I love reading the Anthology, but haven’t entered for any of these awesome give-aways yet. Fingers crossed!
My favorite Summer weekends in this city are spent surrounded by friends trying to make the most of every second. I love music festivals, and would love to take a friend with me to check out some awesome music in an absolutely beautiful setting!
