The much anticipated Outside Lands Music Festival has officially sold out tickets for this weekend’s 3-day grand fiesta, held near Ocean Beach in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. Many popular artists in the surf community will perform from August 9-11th in Northern California’s metropolitan, including: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Youth Lagoon, Young The Giant, Band of Horses, Surfer Blood, Kaskade, Fishbone, Baauer, Paul McCartney and many, many more. The diverse lineup resembles the eclectic mix of people from all walks of life that SF prides itself on.
The event will take place in the iconic Golden Gate Park near Ocean Beach, the location of Kelly Slater’s 11th World Title win at the Rip Curl Pro.
Outside Lands isn’t just a 3-day music festival in one of the state’s best surf towns; it’s jam-packed with some of the city’s best food and beverage vendors. Now at a grand total of 72 food vendors, the latest additions include Cheese Lands (debuting in the Wine Lands courtyard), the full Choco Lands offering, additional chefs and dishes from The Whole Beast and more.
And of course for the responsible 21+ ers, there will an epic “Beer Land” and “Wine Land” to get lost in.
Levi’s is a strong supporter of sustainability, and believes cycling is an easy way to have less of an impact on the environment. That’s why Levi’s and Outside Lands are excited to provide a secure bicycle valet for festival goers who want to leave their cars at home. All bikes parked between 10am and 8pm will receive a FREE bike wash.
San Fran is sure full of nice people…
Returning to San Francisco for the second consecutive year, the Fender Airstream will be backstage in the artist village as a professional recording studio and lounge, capturing exclusive performances and interviews by Outside Lands performers, which will be featured on www.fender.com.
Outside Lands attendees will be able to visit the Fender Fan Oasis tent near the Lands End Stage to play the latest Fender gear and try their luck with the custom built Fender prize wheel for a chance to win a Fender guitar, upgraded festival day passes, Fender T-shirts and many other Fender-branded SWAG items.
In addition, festivalgoers will be able to take their picture at the Fender tent and tweet photos to @Fender with the hashtag #outsidelands #fenderroadtrip for the chance to win a Fender acoustic guitar.
To get even more pumped up for Outside Lands, we thought we’d supply a sample 2013 playlist from some of our must-sees. Starting it off right is “Californication” – a classic favorite by the one-and-only Red Hot Chili Peppers:
Be sure to check out Baaur at Outside Lands. Hit song, “Harlem Shake” sure was a popular song this year topping the charts and breaking iTunes records, and it made its rounds in the surf community with a plethora of spoof videos. How about this one with World Tour surfer Sebastian Zietz and the rest of the Oakley surf team on the North Shore?
The band Surfer Blood has been busy touring up along the Cali coast, even playing a free show for the LA surf community on the Santa Monica Pier. Their newest album was produced by the legendary Gil Norton (Pixies, Foo Fighters). Now they will make their way up north for Outside Lands. Here’s a goodie by Surfer Blood called, “Demon Dance”:
