OUTSIDE LANDS 2012!
The sold out event of the summer is upon us! Outside Lands 2012 will commence tomorrow, Friday August 10, with a rock star line up continuing for the rest of the weekend. The young people of the Bay Area are brimming with anticipation as the much-awaited weekend arrives. This year is the first time Outside Lands has ever sold out before hand. This could be due to the smorgasbord of musicians coming to enjoy the mild summer nights of San Francisco and shake up Golden Gate Park. Although this event does attract a younger crowd, there is more than enough room and pleasures for the young at heart as well! With Stevie Wonder and Neil Young headlining, the plethora of fine food and wine stands, and the California sunshine showing off, there is plenty for people of all ages to enjoy. Unfortunately, if you have not obtained a ticket yet that might be a little tricky as scalped single days are over 200 dollars. Still, Outside Lands is one of the best deals of the summer when compared to other music festivals around the country (See Chart).
As the excitement builds around Golden Gate Park, even more opportunities are popping up to see these bands and musicians after the fact. There are numerous un-official after parties including Of Monsters and Men at the California Academy of Sciences and Andrew Bird at the Independent. Tickets for those will go fast so get them while you can!
