Outside Lands is completely sold-out -- you won't see any tickets for sale at the festival this weekend -- but that doesn't mean getting in is impossible. You just have to get lucky. The SF Mixtape Society, an informal group that gathers quarterly to exchange and savor mixtapes, is randomly giving away a pair of Outside Lands passes to a person who submits a mixtape on or before Aug. 7. (Yes, that's tomorrow.) This could be your chance!
So what do you have to do? Make a mixtape and submit it to the society's website by 6 p.m. tomorrow, Aug. 7. The mixtape theme for this month is "camp."
Then, be lucky, and hope you win the two Outside Lands passes. The winner will be chosen randomly, so even if you just compile a Mumford and Sons best-of, you still have a chance of winning. (Regardless, please do not do this.)
Also, show up to the Society's meeting 4 p.m. Aug. 18 at the Make Out Room, and commune with your fellow mixtape-makers. It's free. But you can only take home a mixtape if you bring one of your own.
