Outside Lands 2011

Ah, summertime! A time for bike riding, spending countless hours at the beach, and of course hitting up some amazing local live music! California produces music festival after music festival around this time of year, and I'm here to let you know about the one that is happening in San Francisco on August 12th, 13th, AND 14th 2011! It's SF's Outside Lands, which takes place every summer in Golden Gate Park in the city. This event is a huge highlight of the season for Bay Area locals and visitors alike, as it always acquires some of the finest bands of today's indie/alternative music scene, as well as artists of today's electro scene.

Me at Outside Lands 2010

I myself had the opportunity to work a day of the festival last summer, and this year I am attending as a guest. The tickets are for all three days, and the line up is proof that they are worth every penny! Though there are bands from all over the world playing at this event, I'm focusing on the local ones in this article because after all, that's what The Rising Tide is all about!

Here's a list of some of the local artists that will be performing at the event:

John Fogerty (Berkeley, CA)

!!! (Sacramento, CA)

Vetiver (San Francisco, CA)

The Limousines (San Francisco Bay Area, CA)

The Stone Foxes (San Francisco, CA)

The Fresh & Onlys (San Francisco, CA)

These are just a few of the awesome artists that will be performing at Outside Lands 2011. Click here for the full lineup! If you haven't already got your ticket, get it soon because this event will likely sell out! Look out for a post by me in August with a report back of how the event went!
