Who can resist the charm of San Francisco's Outside Lands music festival? I live about 25 blocks from where the festival resides in Golden Gate Park, and despite the chilly weather typical of SF's "Fogust," I always have a great time at the festival.
This year, the line-up is pretty fantastic. I'm going to have a difficult time deciding between the headliners - especially Mumford & Sons, Wilco, The Black Keys, Kendrick Lamar, Tame Impala (sorry, Elton John and Sam Smith). The music can also often take a backseat to the incredible food and alcohol that the festival offers - favorites always include 4505 Meats, Beast and the Hare, Little Skillet, Michael Mina, Rich Table, Stone's Throw, Tacolicious.
