Outside Lands 2013 | Review

Submitted by Rochelle Shipman on Wed, 08/14/2013 - 3:37 pm

Golden Gate Park hosted San Francisco’s 6th Outside Lands Festival this past weekend, bringing in scores of talent ranging from musical to culinary to comedic. The festival sold out more than a month in advance, yet the grounds felt deceptively spacious all three days.

Resiliency marked the opening of the Rhythms on the Rio Riverside Fest this past Saturday. After the spring fires, the summer monsoons hit the region hard, coloring the Rio Grande with black runoff from the burn scars higher in the mountains and swelling the waters into a rushing torrent. More of those rains hit the festival late afternoon creating some scrambling between the sound crew and the bands and forcing festivalgoers under any available tarps and canopies.

Horning's Hideout 2013 | Review & Photos

Nobody in the current concert and touring scene has done more to up the ante for music festivals and “happenings” than the String Cheese Incident.
