To the 15th anniversary celebration of San Francisco’s most notorious music-centered event, Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival. Founded by the prolific production companies, Superfly Presents, Another Planet Entertainment and Starr Hill Presents, Outside Lands has upheld the title of the largest independently owned music festival in the United States since 2017. Based on the lineup that just dropped for this year’s celebration, I don’t see that changing any time soon.
In 2019, Outside Lands revolutionized music festivals by becoming the first major music festival to offer legal cannabis for sale, after the San Francisco Office of Cannabis granted a temporary sales permit to Outside Lands. The area became known as “Grass Lands” and sold more than $1 million in cannabis products such as edibles, vaping cartridges and joints over the three-day event.
But it doesn’t stop there!
Outside Lands also features attractions that focus on food, wine and beer, art and everything else there is to love about the Bay Area. The wine lands portion of the festival allows people to purchase tickets and sample wine from a variety of different vendors. There are also areas that offer separate entertainment, including a sports lounge, an arcade/bar, and various food and art vendors.
Tickets to the 3-day fest, slated for August 11-13, 2023, go on sale on March 8th at 10:00 AM PST and will likely sell out at lightning speed. Stay alert!
Foo Fighters is one of the headliners on the bill this summer and will mark the band’s return to San Francisco since the unexpected death of long-time drummer, Taylor Hawkins. Hip hop G.O.A.T., Kendrick Lamar will be headlining as well as everyone’s favorite electronic duo, ODESZA.
Also on this year’s bill: The 1975, Lana Del Rey, Zedd, Megan Thee Stallion, Maggie Rogers, Janelle Monáe, FISHER, Noah Kahan, Ethel Cain, J.I.D, Cigarettes After Sex, Lil Yachty, Father John Misty, Willow, Orville Peck, Beabadobee, Cuco, Alvvays, aespa, NIKI, Diesel (Shaquille O’Neal), Holly Humberstone, Mariah the Scientist, Crumb, Joy Oladokun, Samia, Ethel Cain, Yaya Bey, TOPS, Nation of Language, Grace Ives, No Vacation, Grace Ives, Daniel Avery, Wednesday, and more.
