August is fast-approaching, folks, which means San Francisco’s Outside Lands Music Festival is just around the corner. Lucky for you, Long Meadow Ranch and culture magazine are partnering up yet again to bring you Cheese Lands, your number-one festival destination for things cheese! (Read all about last year’s event here.)
In celebration of another year of artisan cheese goodness, we’re giving away two 3-day General Admission Tickets to the *SOLD-OUT* festival—so what do you gotta do?
Pairing cheese with wine is a no brainer, but what about cheese and music? Since musical times call for musical measures, we’re asking you to come up with your favorite artist and/or song to pair with your favorite cheese. Beach House + Humboldt Fog? Check. Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams Are Made of This” + Stilton? You got it.
The best response wins the two 3-day tickets, and ten runners-up will receive a free issue of culture magazine!
Well, gang, we’ve received quite a few clever and/or inspiring cheese and music pairings. But a giveaway’s gotta have a winner, so we have done our best to narrow down our choices to one exceptional grand prize victor and ten pretty great runners up. Without further ado—
Beecher’s Flagship + “Tenderly” by Dr.Teeth & The Electric Mayhem
Alta Langa La Tur + “Reasons” by Earth, Wind & Fire
Cowgirl Creamery Mt. Tam + “Is This Love” by Bob Marley
Yancey’s Fancy XXX Sharp Cheddar + “Kashmir” by Led Zeppelin
Cowgirl Creamery Devil’s Gulch + “Over the Hills and Far Away” by Led Zeppelin
