Since its inception, Outside Lands has evolved into a beloved San Francisco tradition and boon for the Bay Area, as thousands of fans from around the world flood the iconic city for an incomparable weekend in one of the world’s greatest green spaces. As part of the festival’s ongoing commitment to the local community, Outside Lands has contributed nearly $17 million to the San Francisco Recreation & Park Department. Additionally, the festival generates over $70 million annually for San Francisco’s economy and employs over 4,850 people each year. As one of the world’s most sustainable large scale events, Outside Lands diverts more waste than any other festival of its size. In 2016, an astonishing 91% of the festival’s waste was reused, recycled or composted.
Outside Lands highlights the city and its environs by putting special emphasis on the food, wine, art and culture that make the Bay Area so unique. For the 2017 festival, fans will have access to more than 80 Bay Area restaurants, 40+ Northern California wineries, close to 30 West coast breweries, and a collection of the region’s best cocktail bars. Both GastroMagic, a fan favorite stage devoted entirely to the synergy between culinary and performance art and The Barbary, a variety tent named for San Francisco’s notorious Barbary Coast featuring top names in comedy, podcasts, music, improv and general weirdness will also return to the festival.
Outside Lands is simultaneously a true destination festival and a celebration of the region’s best. You won’t want to miss it.
