Outside Lands Music Festival Background
Lands first took place in the summer of 2008, and attracted over 60 musical acts as well as art exhibits from around the world.
The crowd went wild for this eclectic and cultural event in the heart of one of America's most diverse cities. In the first
year alone, 40,000 to 60,000 people attended the festival each day, making it a huge success. Because of the massive influx
of attendees, there was some criticism about the lack of crowd control. Since that first year, however, all of the kinks have
been sorted out and Outside Lands continues to be one of the most anticipated events of the year.
Not only is Outside
Lands one of the top music festivals in the country, but the festival grounds themselves are rich with history. In 1871, engineer
William Hammond Hall was given the task to transform the sandy and barren wasteland that is now the Golden Gate Park into
a usable city space. What he and his crew did to that space is still regarded as magnificent, creating a natural and serene
refuge from the hustle and the bustle of the city. In the 1960s, the Golden Gate Park became a haven for counterculture and
peaceful protests. Students and activists from around the world congregated at Golden Gate Park to protest the war and instigate
social change. Today, over 13 million people visit the park each year to experience its breathtaking beauty and expansive
Because the grounds are so expansive, Outside Lands takes place only in specific areas, such as the beautiful
Polo Fields, the Speedway Meadow, and Lindley Meadow.

Do you know why the festival
is called "Outside Lands"?
The name of this wildly popular festival dates all the way back to the 1860s, when the area
was too inconvenient to reach for the city's masses. The people of San Francisco deemed it a wasteful space, often referring
to it as the "outside lands". Once the government decided to officially name it part of San Francisco, the citizens began
to take notice. It has since turned into one of the greatest parks in the country, and is only referred to as "outside lands"
for the annual music festival.
Join the thousands of happy festival-goers this August as
they flood Golden Gate Park to mingle, dance, laugh, and listen to some of the best musical acts in the world. The welcoming
environment and the friendly vibes will make you feel right at home, and the excitement in the air is contagious, and Outside
Lands will quickly become one of your favorite weekend events out of the entire year. Just like all of the other Outside Lands
