The Mesmerizing Evening Sights from Outside Lands


San Francisco’s Outside Lands Festival — a music and arts bash that takes place at Golden Gate Park — is underway, and this year’s lineup includes music giants Kanye West, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Killers, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Arctic Monkeys, and lots more. There’s also food, wine, and beer to be consumed, and tons of art to be thoughtfully admired. It’s basically the most amazing weekend of the year.

Amidst the big names, tasty fare, and impeccably dressed (or, layered) concert goers is something that doesn’t get quite as much attention: the mesmerizing nighttime landscape. Soaking up sunshine is fun and all, but sometimes all you wanna do is sashay under the stars and take in the flashing lights, amirite?

To show you what we mean, here are a few of our favorite evening images from Outside Lands of the past.

SFGate covered the Outside Lands Festival in 2012. There are a slew of images to paw through on the site, but this one is just gorgeous!

This super dreamy photo from the 2012 Outside Lands Festival looks like something out of a modern day Shakespeare novel.

Not really sure what is going on in this picture taken during the Sigur Ros set at Outside Lands 2012, but it is nothing short of magical.

If you’ve ever been to Outside Lands — or if you’ve looked at pictures — you’ll probably recognize the windmill gates. At night they’re all lit up, naturally.
