Free Treasure Island tickets and portable speakers? Say what…

outside lands

Are you too broke to go to Treasure Island?  Many of us didn’t budget for every rageful luxury such as Outside Lands and Burning Man and Treasure Island while being able to eat and pay rent in San Francisco.  Many of us working in a bootstrapped startup (ourselves included) have hoards of energy and creativity, but no time or money to see a lineup including The XX, M83, SBTRKT, AraabMuzik, and Public Enemy.  If you are dying to see this insanely fat lineup and you only have enough dollars to buy Hot Cheetos and Takis then we have just the ticket…literally.

Here’s the deal though; We’re not going to do some lame raffle to get your email address and build a spam list.  We just want to be amused by your desperate attempts to ruthlessly self promote.

To win a ticket, we provide you with the extravagance of choice.

If you own a boombot you can do the following:

  1. Make a video of how you utilize with your ultra portable speaker and upload it onto YouTube and Facebook.
  2. Take an exceptionally artsy Instagram photo with your Boombot in a beautiful landscape, cityscape, wherever. Upload it onto Swagonomics and Facebook and voile! You’ve entered!

For those poor Boombot-less souls, you can enter these ways:

  1. Write a blog post explaining how Treasure Island is screaming your name and why you need a Boombot in your life.
  2. Take a photo of yourself being awesome.
  3. Draw a cartoon or picture related to music and having fun.

We aren’t going to give away a free two-day ticket out of sympathy (we ain’t ballin’), but if you have a legitimately awesome video, photo, blog post or drawing send it to treasureisland@boombotix.com for a chance to win.  Be sure to include “Treasure Island FREE ticket” in your subject header. We’re also giving away a festival survival kit including a free Boombot2, a blanket, beach ball, bubbles, pack of gum, and other necessary items.

How it works: The super qualified judges from Boombotix choose their favorite 5 contestants. Starting October 3 our Facebook fans vote for who they like the most.

We’re offering a FREE TWO-DAY TICKET TO TREASURE ISLAND, SO GET TO GETTIN’!

Upgrade Your Speaker, and be Happier

Interested in a no-strings-attached relationship? Your favorite portable speaker company has made it ohhh so easy for you! If you trade in your old Boombot1 you automatically receive $25 credit towards a Boombot2. Take advantage of this new upgrade program and go WIRELESS.  It doesn’t matter if your Boombot1 is dirty, missing an eye, or just plain ratchet, trade it in for a newer and better version no matter the condition!

To redeem your $25 credit, submit an exchange request on our exchange page and send in your old unit whether it is working or not.  We will recycle your old Boombot1 to artists to paint and create on, so you can be-one-with-the-artist while getting hooked up. Our Boombot2 collection features Bluetooth technology for wireless playback with all smartphones, tablets, and laptops. The unit can also be daisy chained to external speakers or addition units for stereo sound.

Don’t forget to peek our newest limited edition Boombot. The Topography Edition Boombot2 incorporates a variety of elevation map profiles making each unit completely unique. This design was dreamt up by our CEO while he was surfing in Bali, exploring the wonders of Gaudi in Barca, and enjoying the beauty of Tahoe as he thought to himself, “I hope my customers are making the most of their day.” This limited edition is meant for you and your life in motion, so swoop one up before everyone else does!

Outsidelands + bicycles + Levi’s = fun.

Outside Lands is more than just a festival – it’s a lifestyle. This festy experience magnifies beyond the spicy guitar licks, booty shaking bass and stunning vocals, it’s meant to give you a taste of what San Francisco is in all of its glory. From recycled art, farmers markets, urban gardening and grubbing down with the local eateries, this experience wouldn’t be complete without our favorite mode of transportation – bicycles!

This year’s free bike valet will be provided courtesy of Levi’s, who will also be pimping your bike out with free tune-ups and bike washes as well! Levi’s recently released a very chill line of bicycle commuter wear (check out the line here) and they’re also hosting  “Golden Sprints” at the festival. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Golden Sprints, anyone who can ride a bike can participate. In a nutshell: you race on a stationary bike that are set up to gauge how far and fast you are, whoever goes the fastest for a certain amount of distance wins sweet prizes such as swag from Mission Bicycle Bompanybags from Mission Workshop, bikes from Globe and speakers from the best portable speaker company ever, yours truly.

DOPE RIGHT?! The races will be taking place in the Levi’s tent at Eco Lands this weekend so be sure to come and check it out! Spandex is highly encouraged.
