Contest: Live near NYC? Rock with Sony at Virgin Mobile Freefest

On Sunday, August 30, the grounds at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD, will get rocked by the Virgin Mobile FreeFest. Scheduled to perform at the festival are Weezer, Blink-182, and Franz Ferdinand, to name a few. Tickets were free. Key words here: “were free”; too bad all of the tickets are gone.

But if you live near New York City and are over the age of 18, we’re giving you the opportunity to experience the event. Destructoid and Sony PlayStation want to put three Dtoid readers on a bus leaving from New York City’s Penn Station down south, so they can experience the event firsthand. Because we’re talking a near five-hour car trip, Sony will be equipping the bus with 20 PlayStation Portables, loaded with content and games to keep you busy. Oh, and riders will also have the chance to win a PSP. Nice.

Sounds good? Here’s how you win: Simply show us a picture of you showing your Sony PlayStation love in the comments. What does that entail? Well, we’re leaving that up to you, but keep in mind that licking a PSP is old news. Just keep it clean-ish, that’s all we ask. We’ll randomly pick three winners out of those who put in a little effort, and will announce and contact* the winners on Tuesday, August 25, at 12 PM Eastern.

Remember: While transportation to and from Virgin Mobile FreeFest will be provided, you must be able to provide your own transportation to NY Penn Station, where you’ll meet the bus. You must also be 18 years of age or older; no exceptions.

Good luck!

*We’ll be contacting you at the email address you provided when you signed up for Dtoid; please make sure you check and have access to this address.
