Outside Lands is a music festival that takes place every year at the Golden Gate park in San Francisco. This year, it will take place on the second weekend of August, from August 10-12.
On Friday morning, the festival gates open at 11 in the morning, and the music ends at 10 in the evening. The same schedule applies for the following two days, with a slight exception for Sunday: the music will end at 9:40 rather than 10 in the evening.
Outside Lands is not a camping festival like other music festivals, and you are not allowed to sleep at Golden Gate park or in your car nearby.
