Outside Lands is just around the corner as it makes its 11th annual return to Golden Gate Park in San Francisco on August 10-12. As always, expect some of the best names in music such as THE WEEKND, Florence + The Machine and even JANET JACKSON. Not to mention a myriad of other all-time favorites such as FUTURE, ODESZA, BECK, CARLY RAE JEPSEN, BON IVER, N.E.R.D, CHVRCHES, and more. Apart from the world class music lineup, there will be art, comedy as well as the best Bay Area's food, wine and beer. This year attendees will be able to purchase tickets in four (4) installments with their Layaway Plan option. Below we have outlined the top 5 reasons why you should absolutely not miss Outside Lands this year.
1. There will be over 200 food menu items. Yes, you read that right.
People have always came for the music and stayed for the food for years and that has not changed. This year there will be even more food selections available ranging from the best wines, beers as well as tasteful cocktail bars to everyone's liking. There's just something magical enjoying Odesza while munching on some bites...
2. Outsider Art, Eco Lands and The Barbary will feature the best of comedy and cabaret.
Just in case you wanted a break from the music, Outside Lands got your back on other enjoyable experiences that will keep you laughing and having a great time with your friends. Expect some stand-up, improv, podcasts and collaborative performances from Wes Anderson films, Chelsea Peretti, Michelle Wolf, Phoebe Robinson and more.
3. You will be helping the environment while you dance away.
Outside Lands is known to be an very green festival and continues to stand out as environmental leader as a festival. This year they will be expanding its sustainable efforts to reduce waste than other festivals of their size. Last year there was a stunning 91% of resuable, recyclable and compostable material. Oh, and they also forked over $20 million to SF's Recreation & Park Department. No biggie.
4. Can't afford the cost of admission up front? There's a Layaway Plan now.
They haven't done this in the past but now for this year, Outside Lands is offering a 3-Day GA & VIP Layaway Plan option, allowing you to pay for their passes in four easy installments. And of course Single Day tickets if you're only wanting to catch certain acts.
5. You will not be bored. Unlike other typical festivals that have the same attractions.
Of course every festival will always have music and food. But Outside Lands is truly unique in a sense that it even has its own fine crafts and high art at the West Coast Craft. West Coast Craft is a biannual juried exhibition of artist and designer craftspeople inspired by the history and future of the West Coast. Founded in San Francisco in 2013, WCC is a show for artists and designers who create works that blur the line between fine crafts and high art. People who explore, take risks, engage with their communities, and embody the cool but sunny, laid back yet innovative mood of the West Coast. The marketplace will showcase over 30 craftspeople. This is the culture has been defining the local San Francisco scene that has always been vibrant.
Single and 3-Day GA tickets are available as well VIP and Parking/Shuttles passes here.
