To get your copy, come to the festival and buy $5 or more of ANY of the Boombox Bands merch. So, if you really like Yonder for example, (We do!), you just go buy a CD or a T-shirt or anything else that costs $5 or more and you get a copy of the Boombox Compilation in addition to sweet stuff from your new favorite band!
