The Food! Oh, The Food!

What other music festival do you know that focuses on food as heavily as Outside Lands? Seriously, I’ll wait as you think about an answer!

Outside Lands fans “come for the music and stay for the food.” The festival’s 2018 culinary program will continue to expand and this year fans will have access to over 200 menu items from the best Bay Area restaurants, hundreds of Northern Californian wines and beers and a collection of the region’s best cocktail bars. Outside Lands’ distinct food and drink experiences that excite the senses will also return, including Taste of the Bay Area, Wine Lands, Beer Lands, The Back Wine, Cocktail Magic, and GastroMagic. The Outside Lands 2018 food and drink lineup will be announced soon.

Last year, Outside Lands not only provided its festival goers with a wide array of options in terms of food choices, but they also dedicate a WHOLE STAGE known as the GastroMagic Stage that mixes culinary magic with music. GastroMagic held performances by Big Freedia and her troupe, beckoning hungry fans to bounce, twerk, and shake for beignets. Beats dropped behind the culinary wizards of Action BronsonRoy Choi, Chris Cosentino, Chris Bianco, Anna Weinberg, Jennifer Puccio, and Stuart Brioza.  From funk to soul, the audience got down to local musicians and entertainers all while watching delicious food being prepared.

Like every good kitchen, GastroMagic shares its works in progress.  The best part– during select programs– the first guests to arrive at the stage got to indulge in the performance’s creation at GastroMagic’s Tasting Table!  YUMMY!


The Beer and Wine!

Outside Lands offers its festival goers a diverse and comprehensive Wine and Beer experience. Wine Land is tucked into the festival grounds and offers a Napa/ Sonoma getaway all while moments away from top named artist performances. Inside Wine Land, you can discover dozens of top regional winemakers pouring more than 120 wines. Pass through for the perfect wine or linger and chat with winemakers about everything from harvest to biodynamic practices to wine pairings- Wine Land has you covered!

For those of you that aren’t Wine fans, Outside Lands has you covered with BEER LAND!  A towering beer mug reading “Ye Ole Beer Lands,” beckons all festival-goers who also love brews into Beer Lands.  This is Beer Lands fifth year at Outside Lands and it was more popular than ever. Beer Lands had more than 25 breweries, hailing from San Francisco, Napa, Sonoma, Half Moon Bay and Berkeley, that epitomize Northern California’s powerful craft beer culture.

Adding to the overall experience, Outsider Art, Eco Lands and The Barbary – named in honor of San Francisco’s Barbary Coast district and featuring the best of comedy and cabaret.

Outside Lands continues to be an environmental leader in the festival scene expanding its efforts to divert more waste than any other festival of its size. In 2017 an incredible 91% of last year’s waste was composed of reusable, recyclable, and compostable materials. As part of Outside Lands’ ongoing commitment to the local community, the festival has contributed over $20 million to the San Francisco Recreation & Park Department.

 Go for the Music, Stay for the Food, and be Merry knowing your impact is small!
