"“Hear ye, hear ye! From deadhead hippies to electro pop hipsters,” screeched the harlequin gliding on rainbow roller skates, “come one, come all.” And did they ever! Over 50,000 audiophiles packed into San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park for Outside Lands Festival to sample a delectable smorgasbord of rock immortals, indie stalwarts, and rookie sensations. Directions? No need, just follow that sweet, pungent aroma!"
"Two days, 57 bands, 60,000 daily capacity, a plethora of tasty munchies, California wine, and plenty of secondhand smoke." Henry Hauser | Outside Lands 2010 | Grateful Web
"Past an array of rainbow tinted Victorians, countless psychedelic peddlers, and that iconic Haight-Ashbury intersection, a dusty footpath leads into the thousand acre site of 2011’s Outside Lands music festival: San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. Attendees of the extravaganza, which returned to its full three-day incarnation following last year’s brief truncation, were treated to a genre blazing blend of rock, country, folk, blues, soul, dubstep, mashup, reggae, and everything caught in the cracks.
InThe queue to enter the festival grounds for Friday’s opening ceremonies moved shockingly fast, providing an early clue that Outside Lands organizations would be at the top of their game all weekend long. Now in its fourth year, the festival’s musical offering were beyond stellar, the food scrumptious, and Wine Lands featured some of the best vino on the planet. But as a chilling fog struggled to obscure the nearby Eucalyptus patches, scantily clad fans began to appreciate that twisted oxymoronic joke known as San Francisco summer."
