2009 Outside Lands Festival in Golden Gate Park: It’s On! August 28-30

Another Planet Entertainment, Superfly Productions and Starr Hill Presents have just announced the dates for the Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival 2009. It’ll be August 28, 29, 30. Will this year’s Outside Lands top 2008? It’s going to be tough, what with Beck and the Radiohead being the headliners last year. (And what about the NIMBYs? They still have the taste of blood in their mouths from the recent Anschutz ING Bay to Breakers battle, so don’t think they’ll take this lying down.)

Will the star power of the Dave Mathews Band in Golden Gate Park on Saturday be enough of a draw? Mmmm. Oraganizers are still working on the lineup so you can sign up for the email list to get the latest on the groups invited as it happens (And at the same time, you can register to join the “Street Team” where you can put an OL banner online and then score tickets for free, or something like that.)

Are the Troubadors coming? We’ll see.

Take a look below – 2008 was a doozy. Did all these people take MUNI? It appeared that way. This link shows how transportation worked behind the scenes.

Grab your boards and get your tickets:

See you there!
