Outside Lands has announced its 2016 lineup. Following five consecutive sold out years, three-day and single-day GA and VIP tickets are now on sale via sfoutsidelands.com. A portion of every ticket sold will directly benefit San Francisco's Recreation and Park Department.

Cole, Halsey, Years & Years and Kehlani; EDM artists like Zedd, GRiZ, Jauz and RÜFÜS DU SOL; rock and folk acts Ryan Adams, Sufjan Stevens, Jason Isbell and Brandi Carlile; indie artists Beach House, Grimes, Miike Snow, and Lord Huron; collaborations like The Last Shadow Puppets, Big Grams (Big Boi + Phantogram) and The Claypool Lennon Delirium; rising hip-hop stars Vince Staples and Anderson .Paak, as well as Lettuce, Ibeyi, Kamasi Washington, Hiatus Kaiyote, Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats and a very special performance by The Muppets' Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem, their first-ever live festival performance.

"If you're not already at Outside Lands," noted Eater at last year's event, "it's probably time to rethink your life choices." A gourmet music festival, Outside Lands 2016 will once again offer ticket-holders a wide array of culinary options, from chef-driven fare and street food the Bay Area has to offer to sought after wines and craft brews found in Northern California. Outside Lands features nine distinct experiences that celebrate San Francisco's culture, including Taste of the Bay Area, Wine Lands, Beer Lands, The Back Wine, the Festival Market Place, Outsider Art, Eco Lands, as well as The Barbary, named in honor of San Francisco's Barbary Coast district and featuring the best of comedy and cabaret and GastroMagic, a fully programmed stage devoted to one-of-a-kind culinary and music collaborations. The Outside Lands 2016 food and drink lineup will be announced soon.
The past eight years have seen Outside Lands evolve into a beloved San Francisco tradition and boon for the Bay Area as thousands of fans from around the world arrive for a weekend in a green space—over 210,000 fans attended in 2015. Based on a 2011 economic study, it is estimated that Outside Lands generates over $70 million annually to the San Francisco economy. Festival organizers have made sure to highlight the city and its environs by putting special emphasis on all the many aspects of food and culture that make the Bay Area special. In addition, Outside Lands organizers have said thank you to its host city and the other communities surrounding Golden Gate Park by giving back in substantial ways. Since its inception in 2008, Outside Lands has raised over $13.7 million to benefit the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department, with more than $3 million raised in 2015 alone.
