San Francisco Welcomes the Outside Lands Music Festival with Open Arms

 The people behind the upcoming Outside Lands Music Festival would like you know that you can head on over to Golden Gate Park starting Wednesday to get your tickets without any fees from TicketMonster or anyone else. That’s nice, huh?

“If you haven’t purchased tickets yet, you can buy them without a service charge starting at 12PM on Wednesday, August 26th at the festival box office located at Speedway Meadow at the intersection of JKF and Transverse.”

As it looked last year:

And if you don’t like Tenacious D, then don’t go, right? I mean, cancer happens, you got to deal with it.

And let’s hope the NIMBYs of San Francisco won’t be too upset by all the activity of the young whippersnappers. Would the neighbors of GGP trade one weekend of Outside Lands a year for free admission for all at Strybing Arboretum for an entire year*?

Signs point to YES.

*(Yes the interior walls of that building are painted an indescribable green - perhaps the seven figures generated by OL could go for several coats of beige. Or something.)

    $89.50/day and $225.50 /3 days? They don’t get it– they’re supposed to make their money from vending, not ticket sales. Those prices are just insane.
