Outside Lands is coming back, but rather than its traditional August weekend in Golden Gate Park, the music festival will take place from Oct. 29 to 31—Halloween weekend.
This is the second pandemic-related postponement for Outside Lands, which was pushed from August 2020 (click the link to see who’s no longer on the lineup) to last fall, and then to August 2021. The lineup from the originally scheduled festival remains largely the same, with Lizzo, Tame Impala, The Strokes and Tyler, The Creator at the top of the bill. Also performing is Vampire Weekend, J Balvin, Rüfüs Du Sol, Kehlani, Glass Animals, Zhu, Young Thug, Kaytranada, Khruangbin and Brittany Howard.
Tickets, which include three-day general admission, VIP and more, are on-sale now at the festival’s website.
“We have been eagerly anticipating our return to Golden Gate Park for over a year now and although we have to wait a few months longer, we couldn’t be more excited to present an epic Halloween edition of Outside Lands,” said Allen Scott, president of concerts and festivals at Another Planet Entertainment and co-producer of Outside Lands, in a news release. “The shift in dates allows us to work collectively to determine any new safety measures necessary to implement during the festival weekend. We ask fans to use this time before the festival to continue exercising common sense COVID safety practices and we look forward to being together again soon.”
The event is also produced by Superfly and Starr Hill Presents.
According to a news release, the producers are working with San Francisco and state officials to determine additional safety and security measures. When asked whether there will need to be mandatory vaccination among attendees, a spokeswoman said the information was not available. Additional information on health and safety will be updated on the Outside Lands website.
For current ticket-holders of the previous dates of the festival, tickets will be honored for the October dates. For those unable to attend the new dates, refunds may be requested until April 17.
New tickets may be purchased in a payment plan, which starts at $150 down with two additional payments for three-day tickets.
Producers also expect to again offer top-choice food, beer, wine, art and other cultural programming, as well as Grass Lands, the first curated cannabis experience at a major American music festival.
