Outside Lands’ fifth anniversary lineup represents a palpable expansion on the traditions of the festival Rolling Stone called last year, “One of America’s best.” Consistently setting the standard in Northern California for intelligence and diversity in its programming, Outside Lands will up the ante once again and feature a staggering array of sets from established artists, newcomers, and the icons who inspired them. Featured this year are two Bay Area giants, Neil Young & Crazy Horse and Metallica, the latter of whom, on the heels of their 30th anniversary, will be performing in their home park for the first time ever. The festival also welcomes Stevie Wonder’s first bay area appearance in many years, Jack White, who is celebrating the release of his first solo record, and Foo Fighters and Skrillex, both enjoying a multi-Grammy award winning year.
Outside Lands has quickly become known for being as much about the food as it is about the music. As The Huffington Post reported, “unlike, well, every other music festival in the country, the culinary offerings at Outside Lands are truly spectacular.” This 2012, the festival will see its most expansive line-up yet. In total, ticket holders will discover approximately 100 food and wine options including organic, kegged wine; food trucks and bites from some of the city’s hottest chefs. Over 50 restaurants will gather in A Taste of the Bay Area and fans can expect to enjoy returning favorites like Maverick, Farmer Brown’s Little Skillet, Pacific Catch, American Grilled Cheese Kitchen and 4505 Meats. Wine Lands will celebrate over 30 of the region’s wineries and welcome back standouts like Long Meadow Ranch, Scribe, Bonny Doon, Kermit Lynch and Paul Grieco’s Summer of Reisling 2012.
Now in its fifth year, the Outside Lands has become a cherished event that the city of San Francisco has embraced as fans from across the country flock to spend a incomparable weekend in one of America’s greatest parks!
