    2022 Recap: Outside Lands Music Festival Returned To Golden Gate Park For Another Legendary Experience

    Outside Lands is a 3-day music festival held annually in San Francisco, California at Golden Gate Park.

    It is the largest independently owned music festival in the US. In 2019, it became one of the world’s highest-grossing festivals with revenues of almost $30 million.

    This year, The Fox Magazine had the opportunity to attend the festival as it returned on August 5-7th with a star-studded festival lineup presented by Another Planet Entertainment, Superfly, and Starr Hill.

    See below for our full recap of the entire weekend.

    DAY 1

    This year’s Outside Lands returned with its original six stages laid across Golden Gate Park’s Polo Field, Hellman Hollow, Speedway Meadow, and Marx Meadow. Each stage presented its own unique vibe with the two main stages, Lands End and Twin Peaks, taking headlining presence for renowned artists such as Lil Uzi Vert, SZA, Green Day, and more.

    The first day of the festival kicked off with the Taste of Bay Area. Some of the Bay Area’s most exciting restaurants popped up, including one of our favorites – Abacá Restaurant, a contemporary Filipino-Californian restaurant, showcasing the beauty and vibrance of Filipino culture and cuisine.

    Family-owned and operated, The Fox Magazine got a personal taste of homemade family recipes and flavors of North America’s best ingredients (10/10 recommend)!

    DAY 2

    Headlining performances by Jack Harlow, Green Day, Kali Uchis, and more kicked the evening into high gear while others trekked to see Larry June, the hometown favorite with an undeniable presence in San Francisco.

    Another artist that set the stage on fire was Maxo Kream, an American rapper from Houston, at the Panhandle stage. Maxo, also known as Emekwanem Ogugua Biosah Jr., is known for his honest lyricism, speaking about past life experiences. At times, he unapologetically took to the intimate stage for freestyling moments on the mic watching the crowd mouth his words alongside him.

    Festival goers lined up at Gray Whale Gin to try their tastebuds at the premium small-batch gin, distilled from Californian botanicals foraged along the migratory path of the Gray Whale.

    A great-tasting cocktail soon turned into a deep dive into the Gray Whale’s journey and living life mindful of the importance of ocean conservation. Through the #OceanLoveTour hosted by founders Jan and Marsh, guests were able to experience a sensorial and photo-worthy take of the Gray Whale and the waters in which it swam — leaving us perfectly refreshed in the midst of Day 2’s festival heat.

    DAY 3

    Music, food, and drink were three of the things that make Outside Lands so special, which is why we had to check out the GastroMagic Culinary Stage, the place to go for anyone seeking hilarious and delicious entertainment.

    Located in Lindley Meadow, the GastroMagic Culinary Stage featured three days of one-of-a-kind culinary, musical, and comedic pairings, featuring fan faves Roy Choi, Tom Colicchio, Daniela Soto-Innes, Ludo Lefebvre, and more! Guests watched artists like American rapper Pusha T, also known as Terrence LeVarr Thornton, place an apron on to cook his favorite fish taco dish, allowing fans to get a personal taste and interaction with the artist. Many laughed while others were in awe as he passed around his completed dish for fans to taste.

    Others marched on ready to see Euphoria’s rising actor and musician Dominic Fike play his guitar strings to the likes of his infamous cover of Paul McCartney’s ‘Kiss of Venus’, while other fans waited patiently for headliner American musician Post Malone to come on later in the evening. By night’s end, Post did his due diligence when his set did not disappoint — ending the 3-day festival with fireworks that alluringly lit the night sky.

    WEST COAST CRAFT  x OUTSIDE LANDS MARKETPLACE

    The West Coast Craft x Outside Lands Marketplace shared extraordinary artisanal offerings from the most talented makers in the Bay Area and beyond. Whether it was an extra sweater guest needed to combat the unpredictable San Francisco fog or extra sunglasses because one (in)evitably went missing, the West Coast Craft x Outside Lands Marketplace ensured music lovers were able to explore and get what they want and need.

    This year’s lineup of artists, designers, and craftspeople was the most diverse yet, with 50% BIPOC representation. A brand worth remembering from the marketplace is Quill Fine Jewelry, dedicating a percentage of its sales to the Save The Children Foundation. They offered jewelry in gold-filled, gold vermeil, and 925 sterling silver. And for those with sensitive skin, no worries — all are hypoallergenic.

    Festival goers supported small businesses and shopped one-of-a-kind festival souvenirs including clothing, ceramics, jewelry, home decor, beauty, wellness products, and more from dozens of innovative vendors all weekend long.

    GRASS LANDS

    The first curated cannabis experience at a major American music festival returned for year four!

    Grass Lands is a 21+ celebration of all things cannabis, with education and resources about how it integrates into our daily lives. There were many cannabis lovers enjoying the vibe with premium products and brands such as Zig Zag, High Times Magazine, and Stiizy. High Times definitely brought the energy with a pop-up activation led by their Director of Events, Mark Kaz.

    WINE LANDS

    Whether you’re a sommelier or just in the mood for bubbles or rosé, Wine Lands offered over 100 different wines from some of the most interesting, diverse, and small production California wineries, presented by the very people who make them. Guests stepped into the big burgundy top and discover dozens of wineries from NorCal and beyond.

    With a small purchase of a Wine Lands souvenir cup, music lovers were able to taste wine anytime during the 3-day festival offered in 1 oz. samples to 4 oz fill. Wineries like Ryme, Angels & Cowboys, and more shared a mix of red and white blends to take on the go or to hang back and sip.

    SOMA TENT

    Soma Tent made its debut in 2021 and returned to the festival this year with a lineup of talented headliners: San Francisco mainstay Claude VonStroke, techno DJ, producer Dixon, and LA producer TOKIMONSTA, among many others.

    Every day of the festival, the Soma Tent, which was originally inspired by dance nightclubs, featured over 9 hours of dance—day and night. Although we were surprised the Soma Tent didn’t include AC, it quickly became an experiential favorite to kick off a day full of music and exploration.

    All in all,  Outside Lands 2022 was one for the books. With headlining artists and a diverse set of talented musicians, great food and drinks, immersive activations, and exciting pop-up experiences, music lovers from everywhere are getting a true taste of the Bay Area through music, art, and of course, the vibes.
