Outside Lands Brings a Stellar Lineup and More to San Francisco: August 11-13
2017 commemorates the 10th Anniversary of Outside Lands, San Francisco’s premier music festival that descends on Golden Gate Park every August, and the lineup could not be better. This magical three days in August is filled with more awesome acts, food, beer, wine, art, and comedy than ever before, and will include superstar headliners like Metallica, The Who, and A Tribe Called Quest. With truly something for everyone, music will span genres and generations, as will the plethora of food, beer, wine and cocktail options from some of the city’s best purveyors.
The festival also gives back to the community, according to Haute Living, “Last year over 210,000 people flooded Golden Gate Park for the three-day music, comedy, food, and beverage extravaganza. More than 80 different artists performed on five stages. 75 local Bay Area food vendors, 30 breweries, and 40 wineries served the massive crowd delectable eats and drinks including grilled cheese sandwiches, steamed bao, pork belly burgers, Edna Valley Chardonnay, and watermelon Hefeweizen. 4800 bottles of wine were consumed and 8000 oysters shucked. From these numbers, it’s apparent that Outside Lands isn’t your typical music festival. Food and drink play a tremendous part in the experience—and so does giving back to the community. 91 percent of the waste created from Outside Lands was recycled. 683 local jobs were created and a large portion of the revenue ($17 million in the past nine years) is donated to the park to ensure that native flora and fauna flourish after the event.”
From just a day pass, to a full blown out VIP experience, it’s not too late to grab a ticket and bust out your walking shoes and have some fun!
