Outside Lands takes place from August 10 to 12 in Golden Gate Park this year, and of course they're upping the ante even further on the booze and food fronts. First off, there will be a brand new Beer Lands tent, dedicated to 30 local California craft beers representing 16 breweries, all of them curated by Dave McLean, beer guru and owner of Magnolia Brewery and The Alembic. Sierra Nevada's brewer is even making a special Outside Lands Saison to be released in the tent. Nearby—and riding the lamb trend?—Chef John Fink of The Whole Beast is curating the happenings at Outside Lambs, featuring lamb dishes from different Michael Mina restaurants each day. So you can indulge in lamb poutine, 21st Amendment' IPA and Alabama Shakes' sounds all at once. Finally!
Don't forget Taste Of The Bay Area, including a total of 65 different food options this year. Watch out for ten newbies: 1300 on Fillmore, Bacon Bacon, Big Chef Tom’s Belly Burgers, Del Popolo, Hapa SF, Liba Falafel, Living Greens, Luella, Seoul on Wheels, and Southpaw BBQ.
Find the full lineup for Wine Lands here, and Beer Lands here. For those of you who loved Choco Lands last year, not to worry. It will be returning, with vendor details soon to be announced. More information on all of this is on Outside Lands' recently updated website. A limited number of early tickets will be released for sale this Friday at 10 a.m.
