San Francisco is home to one of these heavenly three-day weekends. The fourth annual Outside Lands Music Festival organizers have released the lineup for their Golden Gate Park festival, which is scheduled for August 12 to 14. The list of artists is better than ever and promises to be one hell of a rocking, sweaty, dirty good time. Along with the music, the festival will have a wine tasting event and an extensive selection of local food.
In addition to the main festival grounds everyone is invited to walk over to Eco Lands, at Speedway Meadow. The entire area, including the Panhandle Stage will be powered by solar energy alone. The goal is to "[ensure] the most environmentally sustainable event possible. Every single person attending Outside Lands will participate in decreasing the carbon footprint of the festival by...choosing refillable water bottles over plastic ones, recycling and composting their waste, biking to the festival or picking up local food from our farmers' market and restaurants."
Tickets go on sale Thursday, April 14th, at noon, Pacific Standard Time - 3 pm for your east coasters. The artist lineup is below, though more acts are sure to be added.
