So…one of the coolest things about this blog has been getting to discover festivals that are “new” to me. I had heard of Outside Lands before, but never had the opportunity to check it out. With a lineup like this . . . that needs to change!
Outside Lands will celebrate its twelfth year and takes place at Golden Gate Park in San Fransisco, California from August 9 to 11. The Festival pitches itself as a party for all five senses, featuring: music, art, food and wine. Outside Lands also features workshops and a focus on being eco friendly through the use of solar panels and waste diversion programs.
The festival’s mascot/personality, Ranger Dave, announced Paul Simon as one of the headliners and then began tweeting out clues for the last few days – some of which were really tricky to figure out. But now, we don’t need any more clues because we got an awesome lineup to dissect a few minutes ago
As always we will be back with in depth info after we take it all in – but right off the top I see a few personal favorites: Counting Crows, half alive, NoMBe, Toro y Moi, Judah and the Lion and Bob Moses
The headliners are a really interesting mix. Let us know what you think and look out for more info and a playlist soon.
