Overview

Each summer, Golden Gate Park in San Francisco opens its beautiful grounds to this massive music, food and art festival. Featuring an accessible mix of big-name and emerging acts, the lineup spans genres and generations. The festival also aspires to eco-friendly goals with stages run on solar power, and a comprehensive recycling programme. You can also get back to nature with programmes on organic farming, or a stroll through "Wine Lands", providing samples from California wineries.

This review is for the over 40 crowd, thinking about whether or not to go. If you love concerts and the venue has artists you like, go regardless of your age. But be warned, if you are over 40 you will be in the minority...More

I was probably one of oldest in the crowd. Youth stared at me when I danced (perfectly sober) to the songs and sang along. It's sad people think we should outgrow music festivals. Not cheap. Make sure you like the line up. Be fair and...More

Been going to Outside Lands for the last three years. Such a great experience, especially compared to other multi-day concerts. Not only do they have great music acts spread across all three days, the food, art, drinks, and atmosphere are equally worthy of the price...More
