in SF Concert Reviews by

Outside Lands kicked off for its 11th year today in San Francisco. The sunny skies and green lush scenery of Golden Park created the perfect backdrop for this world famous music festival. In addition to incredible music by artists like Aurora, The Marias, Lil Wayne and Blink 182 the festival also offered world-class culinary and beverage program showcasing the best the Bay Area has to offer.

In addition, Outside Lands returned with Grass Lands, a curated area focused on cannabis where for the first time in festival history attendants could purchase and partake in the green leaf on the premises.

Also returning this year is The Barbary offering some of the world’s best comedians and podcasts. D.A.V.E., which stands for Discussions About Virtually Everything, was also a welcomed new addition to the side stage. 2018’s D.A.V.E. debut included minds as diverse as Bill Nye, Gavin Newsom and Mickey Hart.

All in all it was a great day of fun, which is sure to only get better in the days ahead.
