The Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival is held every year in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. The bands who perform at the event represent diverse musical genres, including indie rock, alternative rock, hip hop, and electronica.

This year’s festival will be held from August 7 to 9. The event will be headlined by Radiohead, LCD Soundsystem, and Lionel Richie. J. Cole, Zedd, Lana Del Rey, Ryan Adams and the Shining, Major Lazer, and dozens of other acts will also perform over three days.

The festival has attractions that focus on food, wine, and art. At a “Wine Lands” part of the festival, attendees can sample wine from several vendors. Food and art vendors sell their creations to festival guests. Other forms of entertainment are offered, including a sports lounge, an arcade, and a bar.

The Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival was created in part to promote environmental protection and preservation. The festival strives to be eco-friendly and to educate the public about environmental movements. Organizers have spearheaded several initiatives intended to make the event eco-friendly. For example, the organizers encourage attendees to use public transportation to get to the event. The festival has solar-powered stages, a refillable water program, recycling and waste diversion programs, and bike valet parking. The festival has also held workshops to teach people about organic food and farming.

The first Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival was held from August 22 to 24, 2008. It featured more than 60 musical acts from around the world performing on several stages, as well as a series of art installations. The original festival attracted 40,000 to 60,000 people per day and was successful.
