  1. Notable Culture and Art

    Each year, a critically popular artist headlines Friday, Saturday, and Sunday over a breezy August weekend. Some notable headliners have been Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, Tenacious D, Kings of Leon, Muse, Metallica, Paul McCartney, and Elton John.

    With the event taking place in San Francisco, the beer, wine, and food are equally popular. Food in the Bay Area is creative and of the highest quality. You might find donut burgers or Oreo funnel cakes to chow down on. There is also some of the best vegan and vegetarian food you’ll ever come across at a music festival. There is an option that allows you to purchase tickets to sample wines from many of the vendors. Additional areas feature entertainment when you need a break from music. This includes a sports lounge, an arcade/bar, and various art vendors.

    Outside Lands has also become known for being eco-minded. The event creates a large footprint sprawling all over Golden Gate Park, but they do what they can to stay green. The event has solar power stages, a refillable water program, a waste diversion program, a recycling program, and a bike valet program.
