Summertime is at our doorstep and San Francisco is in bloom! On August 12-14, in a fantastic and compelling scenario, Outside Lands Festival will entertain thousands of people in the magic woods of Golden Gate Park.
Outside Lands is not just a music festival, but a hot spot for lovers of nature, wine, good food and interesting characters. I made my way to this incredible event in the summer of 2011, finding that beyond a great line up, the festival had so much more to offer, with its lovely installations made of sheet-fortresses between the trees and wooden sculptures here and there. Going from a stage to the other to follow your favorite artists means running into a walking play or a wine tasting, adding to the already incredible experience of a music festival, a unique way to spend the day surrounded by people who share the same passion for art and different cuisines. Some of San Francisco’s best restaurants and bars have a stand at the festival.
If you feel like hitting the West Coast for great music this August and still have tons of fun opportunities in a stunning city like San Francisco, make sure to check Outside Land’s website and to purchase your tickets now, before it’s too late, for something that you will hardly forget.
