You didn’t read the title wrong and you’re not going crazy. Outside Lands published a REAL lineup, for their REAL festival planned for Halloweekend 2021. Typically, Outside Lands takes place in August. But for a shot at a real festival, we’ll happily take the date change and the opportunity to dress up extra spooky as Halloween sets in on San Francisco.
The official website notes that safety is a #1 priority. Outside Lands will be in touch with local officials to create the safest environment possible without compromising the fun. The date change does mean that the lineup alters a bit compared to the original. Some new-to-the-list artists include Glass Animals, Lord Huron, and 24kGoldn. These new additions paired with the heavy hitters already present (Lizzo, Tame Impala, J Balvin and many more) are more than enough to generate excitement. This may be one of the nation’s first chances at a large-scale festival as we approach a post-covid reality. We all know nothing has been a certainty in the last year, but this is one sign of hope we would love to see come to life.
We’re all on the edge of our seats to hear more details about this. Personally, I have already doubled down and purchased a ticket, so every finger is crossed that we’ll be reunited under the bass drop soon enough!
